We often get asked “Why move to the cloud?”
There are plenty of good reasons, but mainly because it just makes good business sense. You can call it efficiency or call it doing more with less, which is extremely important regardless of size of the business. Essentially cloud computing lets you focus on what's important: your business.
Cloud computing is now a mainstream reality with a proven track record. Moving your IT infrastructure to Vista IT Solutions well managed Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) cloud services offering will reduce your overall IT expenses and increase IT resources by fully utilizing hardware, lowering power bills, lowering personnel costs, zero capital costs, resiliency, high speed compute resource delivery and reduced greenhouse gasess as a bonus.
As per “KPMG International’s Global cloud survey: the implementation challenge” survey this graph shows how much is being spent on cloud computing and how much cloud computing growth is gaining. The graph shows that the cloud computing market among diverse set of industries is going at a tremendous rate in the near future as well established global cloud providers such as Amazon Web Service (AWS), Google Cloud Services, and Microsoft Azure build more reliable platforms of their service offerings.
In addition, no matter the size businesses have already started deploying and using the cloud technology and utilizing cloud computing to decrease IT spending.
Advantages of Vista IT Solutions (VITS) Managed Cloud Services:
Lower Costs: Since cloud computing pools all of the computing resources such as compute, network, storage and more, which can be distributed among applications as needed, thus optimizing the use of total sum of the infrastructure resources thus delivering better efficiency and utilization of the shared resources. This also leads to reduced cost of power with facilities of smaller on premise footprint.
CapEx Free Computing: Cloud computing usage provides predictable operating costs (OPeX) and zero capital costs (CAPeX) therefore resulting in more cash flow by eliminating the capital expense associated with building and updating the server side infrastructure.
Unparalleled high speed efficient delivery of resources without lag time: With cloud computing, IT resources such as compute, network, storage and more can be brought up and repurposed in a matter of minutes versus in weeks or months compared to traditional approach. The time to deploy/test new applications drops dramatically with cloud computing. Instead of procuring, managing and installing new hardware, the new server(s) can be deployed through a self‐serviced or fully managed console. This mechanism also allows businesses to foster innovation by allowing them to try new configurations quickly, therefore dramatically reducing the time and money taken to convert a product from concept to reality. With cloud computing IT resources ramp-up time is virtually reduced to minutes versus weeks or months, without paying for each new configuration.
Scale on demand: As business applications grow, additional storage, RAM and CPU capacity etc. can be added on the fly. This means our clients can purchase “just enough” resources and scale up/down as and when applications demand changes. With proper planning and monitoring clients, only pay for what they use and level of requested services.
Lower Maintenance Costs: Cloud computing utilizes overall reduced physical IT resources and reduced on premise infrastructure therefore less on premise hardware maintenance is required resulting in overall lower maintenance expenditure. With a fully managed cloud service, our clients are not required to keep full time server, storage, network, and virtualization experts on payroll resulting in tremendous cost savings and having subject matter experts only a phone call away.
Unparalleled Resiliency and Redundancy: A well-managed Cloud infrastructure backed by our team of expert cloud professionals provide our clients peace of mind. Our unparalleled cloud bases services ensure that clients no longer have to worry that their IT infrastructure can fail over and fail back in a matter of minutes, and have the added bonus of performing disaster recovery dry runs without affecting production infrastructure.
