About Cloud Computing
Moving to the cloud starts with a mindset change. It is about moving from complex and costly infrastructure, to infrastructure that is easy to use and focused on decreasing management time. With seamless and automatic updates there is no need for costly upgrades, with applications tending to be intuitive and easy to use. With these benefits businesses are adopting a cloud strategy at a rapid rate.
Competition is heating up and as the market leaders consolidate their services toward the cloud, pricing will remain and become even more competitive. Although pricing is a factor in decision making other factors play an equally important part: ease of use, simplicity to deploy and of course the vendors innovation road map.
Bigger companies are moving more applications and mission-critical systems to the cloud resulting in cloud computing’s growth statistics speaking for themselves. Estimates vary but growth is expected to be in excess of a compound annual growth of over 25% through to 2013. The revolution is over, the cloud is a reality.
