The main idea behind the entire Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) sector is to provide an easy- to-use process for addressing IT process needs, thereby giving you more time to focus on important business issues. IaaS will save you both time and money because planning, management, and deployment of infrastructural assets are easier and faster to accomplish.
There are numerous benefits to shifting to the cloud. The most prominent ones are listed below:
- Economies of scale – Shifting to the cloud offers economies of scale that you would have never thought possible. Underutilized and misappropriated hardware will no longer be a concern for your business. The cloud will provide computing, storage and RAM resources as you grow.
- Cost control – The cloud will help you save in terms of infrastructure costs. All IT infrastructure and maintenance will be handled by your cloud provider. You will not have to worry about the infrastructure maintenance, nor will you have to hire staff to maintain it. The cloud provider will do it for you, and you will save a bundle in the process.
- Disposable IT – You no longer have to worry about redundant IT hardware piling up in your office. You will have the ability to create, use and destroy infrastructure based on your business needs. It will all be provided by your cloud provider.
- Burstable workloads – You can scale your demands whenever you want and your cloud provider will be able to provide exactly what you need. You can plan and organize your infrastructure to suit your needs.
- Avoiding capital expenditures – With cloud computing, you do not need to purchase expensive assets which will mount your capital expenditure. Subscriptions to cloud computing can be put in operating expenses with no need to amortize hardware costs over time.
