Click through for six qualities a cloud vendor should possess before you sign on the dotted line, as identified by Connectria Hosting.
In today's highly connected world, the benefits and widespread adoption of cloud computing are not just limited to enterprises and government agencies; its transformative impact has prompted changes to a variety of businesses across several verticals – both big and small. In fact, a recent study by Emergent Research,"Small Business Success in the Cloud," found that the percentage of U.S. small businesses using cloud computing is expected to grow by more than half by the year 2020, from 37 percent to nearly 80 percent.
The increased momentum toward cloud computing demonstrates that more and more companies are capitalizing upon the cost benefits associated with cloud computing, as well as the ability to streamline and modernize business models. The growing reliance on the cloud to house everything from banking information to other personal data has made the importance of finding a reputable, secure cloud vendor all the more essential. But where do you begin when starting the search?
Cloud computing relies on real computers (fast servers if companies want good performance), with fast processors, memory and storage to deliver their virtual computing resources. Powerful and reliable software is important to deliver consistent performance and scalability, as well as fast and reliable networks to give users access to the virtual computing resources, software, data and services. What makes these all work together to deliver a successful and secure cloud solution isn't magic (while it may seem that way sometimes). Rather, according to Connectria Hosting, it's a smart, experienced cloud vendor that has these six qualities.
