Cloud Computing Choose the Right Service for Your Business

The so-called Cloud service has been a highlight when it comes to information technology in companies. After all, some features are evolving, and as it happens, companies are starting to have more versatile, secure and efficient options for storing and processing their data.

Several services can be developed and deployed in cloud, such as Big Data databases, websites, storage and processing, plus apps or platforms for providing other services and options such as streamings, lives, courses and content, or even data management systems such as CRMs or management support software such as ERPs.

This is an important way to allow users and businesses to have more agile and optimized access to previously restricted services, which required a lot of computational infrastructure and high cost to assemble and maintain this infrastructure. This is why many companies have realized the importance of thinking about this subject. Here’s the key information you need to know about cloud and how to choose the service that best suits your business:

First, what are the advantages of cloud computing?

The cloud is a “space” where services and information can be stored and developed in a “non-physical” location but accessible from virtually anywhere via a connection to a fully online storage.

It’s like a virtual space that can be limited or not – depending on the service contracted – and bring together many services developed and managed from it, without requiring the company to physically grow its data center.

One of the highlights is scalability. The company can make investment according to demand, and can even increase and decrease this structure according to the business time or seasonality it faces, and this is the so-called “elasticity” that cloud provides.

Working with cloud infrastructure, therefore, is also having greater autonomy over the investment that is made in the infrastructure to support IT services. With cloud, capacity is more easily expandable and controllable.

What is Iaas, PaaS and SaaS?

The term IaaS, or “Infrastructure As a Service”, represents a way for your/ company to have cloud-orchestrated services, that is, as explained, without the need to rent or purchase servers to run your database and manage programs and services.

With cloud, the company doesn’t have to allocate so much space to physical servers. From this investment optimization, you will have more peace of mind about the possible storms these servers are naturally subjected to. Data and files remain much more protected in the cloud.

Similarly, PaaS stands for Platform as a Service for companies that invest in interfaces and platforms for providing and distributing online services to their customers, and ultimately SaaS represents Software as a Service, such as the famous ERPs or CRMs, already mentioned.

In all cases, security, easy information sharing and high availability, along with mobility, teams or managers easily working remotely, and user reach, often make cloud an interesting choice for IT today.

With many options available on the market, there is no closed answer as to which type of service to choose, but rather points to consider when it comes to selecting the one that best suits your needs. Therefore, we brought some more information below:

Public Cloud x Private Cloud

Public cloud is the cloud provided by some free internet service provider, which is managed by the company providing the service and offered to multiple customers at the same time. Although each have their own account, but with common features. Examples are services like Google Drive, and some from Amazon AWS.

Private cloud, on the other hand, is a way for the company to have access to a specific space for its files. In this case, the cloud is exclusive, fully dedicated to its demands, and highly configurable.

Hybrid Clouds

The hybrid cloud concept may be ideal for companies that already use IT infrastructure in a public cloud but also want to allocate part of their operations to a private cloud, or even test this technology or improve their ways of making backups.

Migration can go through this process in companies that invest and choose to keep some of the public cloud storage and services and part of the private cloud at the same time, leading the use of this feature both locally and in their own environment, in each cloud type according to your possibilities.

This prevents the company from allocating too many unnecessary servers, buying structure that ends up obsolete, and with cloud, the possibility of constant updating is always greater. Having better predictability of these costs when compared to all-physical storage infrastructure. You pay only for what is used and there is a fully reserved space for the company to use.

Hybrid cloud is also used when you have the environment on premise and only want to migrate a part. Therefore, the customer does not have to migrate everything to cloud. It is possible to have this communication between on premise and cloud. That is, the hybrid cloud also brings together resources from virtualized servers or those already in the enterprise. It can be a great choice for those who want to combine this technology rather than bringing all applications to the cloud at once.

IBM is an example of a hybrid, adaptive cloud, which enables companies to choose and configure servers that are matched to their needs.

Shared clouds

Finally, shared clouds are those that can be divided between workgroups, businesses, and users with common needs. They often attend well to the needs of companies that have to share a relatively large amount of information for collaborative teamwork.

As you can see, cloud types are varied, it’s up to each company to analyze their needs and demands, their investment possibilities, and what is most worthwhile for their business moment or solution they want to manage, implement or develop.
