Forbes Releases Statistics on Cloud Adoption
We know that more companies are using the cloud but you can’t help but be impressed by the amount of companies now utilizing cloud technology. Why are companies moving their information offsite? What do offsite servers do to bring such substantial change to every industry? We’ll give an overview of why businesses are benefiting from using cloud computing.
The statistics Forbes released show that 93% of organizations surveyed are running applications or experimenting with infrastructure-as-a-service. 82% of enterprises have a hybrid cloud strategy, which is up 8% from last year. What does this mean? It means more companies are relying on offsite servers to store their data.
Most people easily trust their in-house servers to hold their important data and information. Most are careful in their decision to trust cloud servers with their valuable data so it’s natural to be surprised by the amount of organizations moving data to offsite servers. Why are so many companies migrating their data?
Cloud Hosting Providers are equipped with so many resources that are hard to maintain in-house. Their servers are maintained to hold the best security standards and have the most up to date software and hardware to keep your IT systems running correctly. You get a team of specialists working on your hardware and software without the cost of that maintenance. Utilizing IaaS gives you the latest technology without the headache of figuring it out. With cloud computing you have a team working around the clock to keep your IT running without having to hire or pay them.
Forbes also said that 88% of organizations are using public services 63% are using private services. The public server has become a pretty normal part of our lives but a huge amount of organizations are taking the plunge and adopting their own private server. While publicly hosted servers come with a lot of great software to complete smaller tasks for free, private servers brings a lot of added benefits.
Using a private server gives you more security, more customization options, and more software options. On the public cloud, you are using shared software. If there are too many people accessing that software at once, it will slow down or kick you out. On the private cloud, your software is your own and only you can access it. This keeps the software running quickly and efficiently.
You can even use more specialized software on a private server. The public servers have limited options to what actions you can perform on the software. And any updates to the software take a long time to implement because a large portion of the market has to demand it. Private servers let you get the software you want at the time you need it.
Companies are finding a lot of great uses for the cloud. It can either expand or replace their infrastructure. Regardless of how you use it, the cloud can make running your business more efficient and affordable than ever before. It is leveling the playing field with businesses and fostering competitive growth.
