Cloud Computing is no longer a sky-high concept. It has steadily become a core business enabler, helping transform processes for the new-age era.
What the Cloud is?
“A model for enabling ubiquitous, convenient, on-demand network access to a shared pool of configurable computing resources (e.g., networks, servers, storage, applications, and services) that can be rapidly provisioned and released with minimal management effort or service provider interaction.” - National Institute of Standards and Technology
Simply put, cloud computing is all about managing different types of information and services online, with increased freedom and reduced costs. Data Availability, Operational Flexibility and Infrastructure Elasticity are some of the core buzz words here. Cloud services help achieve better business alignment and improved agility, with optimal IT costs.
Essential Cloud Characteristics
With the onset of COVID-19 and remote working, cloud computing is not only a competitive driver; it is inherently taking shape as a sustainability pillar for both young and established organizations, facilitating processes in the post corona world.
