Welcome to the Clouds
Why Cloud Computing?
First: what is it? Cloud computing is a fancy name for essentially bigger, better infrastructure in more secure and environmentally controlled premises. It gets its name from the way it is most often drawn on diagrams: a cloud, representing multiple services provided off site.
When applied to outsourced infrastructure, cloud computing has numerous benefits:
- Freedom from the responsibility of power, cooling and maintenance of your servers.
- Improved reliability = Increased uptime.
- Better Internet Access = Greater communications ability for your business.
- Rapid Provisioning = Greater Flexibility for your business.
- A Service Level Agreement that dictates penalties for non performance.
