Cloud Computing: Migrating to a safer place By: Marco Bárcenas, Implementation Leader

The term “cloud computing” is an interesting topic, that everyday is changing how to work for all those people or companies that use some technological device (gadget) as a working tool. A new topic for many people, which has evolved over the years, and therefore, there’s a lot of information available. Generally speaking, the concept of cloud computing, is known for being able to access information, programs or any service from any device with internet.

Formerly, to work with different softwares you had to have installed multiples applications in your computer, hard drive or any removable drive. Therefore, all resources from your computer were used, like memory, processing, bandwidth, etc. Thanks to technology, nowadays, a person is able to work without having his information stored or installed on his computer, using cloud services.

Cloud computing has many benefits that helps a lot of companies to increase efficiency, improve cash flow and focus on what they’re really do. Here’s 5 of the best advantages:

  • Lower infrastructure costs.

Companies don’t have to spend in infrastructure and software licenses, they just need to  pay a monthly fee of what they use.

  • Automatic updates

Having your applications on the cloud, makes easier when you need to update your application or software. Suppliers take care of them for you and roll out regular software updates, including security updates, so you don’t have to worry about wasting time maintaining the system yourself.

  • Only pay for what you use.

This is one of the mainly reasons of why it is better to use cloud computing. Almost every cloud supplier only charges you for what you monthly use, so you don’t have to worry for an extra cost for things that you are not even using.

  • Disaster recovery.

As all your data is on the “cloud”, you can easily restore or get another server online with all the different technologies that exists to backup your information in just hours. So forget about having you company stopped just because the system is offline.

  • Work from anywhere.

It is great that you don’t have to be in your office or even using the same computer always, because with cloud computing you can have access to all your information in different devices, the only thing you need to worry about it, is having internet connection.

The advantages of cloud computing are clear and convincing. Currently many companies around the world are migrating all their systems and applications to the cloud, to take advantage of all these benefits.
