What is Cloud Computing…

Cloud Computing is a set of technologies that allow the use and provision of software, the ability to store and process data via Internet through the use of distributed and virtualized resources on the network (Internet).
Data and software applications do not need to reside on a computer, they may be “hosted” on the Internet or, as they say, “in the cloud”, allowing people to get rid of computers, sophisticated hardware and dedicated system admins.


Advantages of Cloud Computing:

No costs for purchasing computer equipment

Cloud means “Pay-As-You-Go” i.e. pay only for what you use. This means paying the processing units for their actual use, according to an hourly rate. In this way it is possible to defer the costs of hardware purchase over time as if they were monthly payments and preserve the possibility to stop paying for these computing units when no longer needed.

No cost and long downtime when hardware crashes

Pay for the use of a processing unit means getting rid of the problem of equipment failures and their aging. In case of a computing unit is inadequate it will be possible to migrate your data to another computing unit without having repair costs and in short time.

Have state-of-the-art equipment

By paying equipment for their use, you can always be sure that hardware performance are able to support the latest technologies.

Do not limit the grouth of your business and data center

Thanks to the Pay-As-You-Go and scalability concepts, you do not need to worry about planning resources in order to make them support any growth of your business. When business grows you will need to add processing units allowing to scale your application and get more computing power. All this without any hardware investment, only using self-management tools available in the cloud. So you can scale applications only when necessary and save on the use of resources.

Provide customers with always available quality service

Applications and services will be available 24 hours a day; have your own system in the cloud means to rely on strong data centers, located around the world, that provide reliable and always available internet connections.

Data security

Your data are maintained in remote data centers and are replicated in various areas of the world to ensure their availability and durability. These data are maintained in a safe manner so that they can be used only by the owner. Data centers use state-of-the-art technologies for data protection from intruders. Moving your data to a cloud architecture means you can be sure that they are safe, more than they would be in your own datacenter.

Budgetable management costs

You can daily monitor the fee charged for each service you use. In this way you can plan the use of resources in the future and know in advance how much it would cost.

Energy savings and lower CO2 emissions

The lack of infrastructures within the company leads to energy savings and lower CO2 emissions, thereby promoting a technology that respects the environment.

Cloud vs On-premise…

On-premise infrastructure Cloud infrastructure
Understand software requirements You need to plan in advance the possible deployment scenarios to make sure you buy an appropriate infrastructure No initial planning: you can allocate resources directly On Fly
Develop software according to requirements You need to prepare a test environment in case the infrastructure is not yet available; the deploy is needed at the end of each development cycle You can develop directly on the cloud and get ready to deploy for production use; software updates deploy is facilitated thanks to the cloud infrastructure management tools
Buy computers/servers that allow to run the software Immediate costs for the purchase of equipment. High risks: Errors on wrong purchases or failure of the IT project lead to large capital losses No costs for the purchase of computer equipment: You only pay for the resources you are using. Low risks: wrong purchases or failure of the IT project lead to small capital losses, sometimes derisory
Have internet connection that allows customers to use the services provided You need to take out expensive subscriptions that provide reliable and fast internet connections You do not need internet subscriptions. You pay for the amount of data sent and received by the Cloud infrastructure. Greater reliability, speed and lower costs compared to on-premise solutions
Purchase disaster recovery and backup units Immediate costs for purchasing disaster recovery and backup units. Maintenance costs for backup activities. Complicated procedures for recovery activities. No purchase costs. You only pay for the amount of data involved in the backup activities. Fast and optimized recovery procedures thanks to the cloud infrastructure management tools
Entrust the data center maintenance and security to expert IT managers You need to buy software and firewalls to ensure the security “in the infrastructure” and “of the infrastructure” You only need to ensure the security “in the cloud” without worrying about the security “of the cloud”
Maintain equipment You need to pay for repairing and purchasing new equipment that over time fails or becomes obsolete Costs for repairing and purchasing new equipment are inexistent
