May 2021 More Reasons to Move to the Cloud
Workloads are moving to the cloud at a rapid pace. In 2019, IDG reported that 90% of organizations would have cloud workloads. It is unlikely that all applications will live in the cloud, but it is a perfect fit for many of the workloads that have traditionally sat on premise. BEK Networks can assist you with a cloud readiness assessment for your applications and workloads. Here are a few reasons you should consider the cloud.
Scalability – The cloud is highly scalable by design. This gives your organization the ability to quickly add capacity and to test in a live production environment. This removes the need to estimate capacity planning. Which leads to our next topic.
Capacity Planning – Is anyone good at this? It is common for organizations to overbuy, which means they made a large capital investment without a solid ROI. It’s difficult for organizations to predict changes over time, which often results in lack of capacity. This results in a mad scramble to add capacity at an inflated rate.
Automate Tasks – Does your team spend most of the day maintaining equipment? By moving workloads to the cloud, your team can focus on creating applications and improving the user experience. Managed services allow you organization to focus on what makes more revenue come through the door, rather than maintaining hardware.
Refresh Cycles – Cloud providers typically refresh their equipment at a faster pace than organizations who operate their own premise-based datacenters. By moving to the cloud, you’re able to take advantage of best-of-breed technologies.
