Ten Key Reasons Enterprise Cloud Computing Is Going Places

The Cloud is collaborative and integrating - you can mash up new technologies with the help of cloud computing

Angsuman Chakraborty's Enterprise Blog

Cloud computing isn’t about doing anything new, instead it’s about applications that run in the web rather than your desktop. Some technology experts define CLOUD as follows: Common, Location-independent, Online Utility provisioned on-Demand.

As per my analysis, the key factors favoring Enterprise Cloud Computing are:

  • Factor #1: The growing need of extremely powerful forms of end user computing  such as complex modeling and simulation, and data analytics are on the rise dramatically in the last few years. Many of the tasks can be performed by remotely located computing power and the sophisticated software that the typical enterprise IT set up did not.
  • Factor #2: The users desperately need processing cycles, data storage now-a-days for high degree of computation. Since, the communication bandwidth is limited and expensive, we need processing cycle and data storage as close as possible. Cloud Computing fits in this category.
  • Factor #3: On Demand allocation and de-allocation of CPU, storage and network bandwidth makes cloud computing more appealing to end users.
  • Factor #4: Having hosting facilities on net — that is, in the same locations as core network of switching and routing facilities — eliminates extra expenses to reach a third-party datacenter. Integrated providers also can access network facilities at cost, rather than at market prices.
  • Factor #5: Energy costs and climate change are the crucial deciding factors to choose the location of data center. Cloud Computing satisfies that goal.
  • Factor #6: The Cloud is collaborative and integrating.  You can mash up new technologies with the help of cloud computing and incorporate disparate group of communities like customers, suppliers, interest groups.
  • Factor #7: Cloud Computing is cost effective and provides better pricing model.
  • Factor #8: It’s not just sales, but also after-sales service and support, including: lifecycle management teams ensures successful service delivery on 24/7 basis.
  • Factor #9: Provides advanced tooling for service monitoring and management; portals for network and application performance.
  • Factor #10: Cloud Computing offers vendor independence. Service providers are strategically keen on reaching as wide market as possible because customer base have wide range of requirements and preferences.

    and one for luck:
  • Factor #11: Security typically improves due to centralization of data, increased security-focused resources, etc., but raises concerns about loss of control over certain sensitive data. Accesses are typically logged but accessing the audit logs themselves can be difficult or impossible.
