Before cloud computing, managing IT was a complicated process. In those days, the majority of us deployed and ran our own in-house IT environment. Depending on the type and extent of operations, we had to buy an array of power, cooling, fire protection, networking and computer equipment.
Getting the environment off the ground required a lot of of time and effort. There were various operating systems and applications which had to be installed, configured and fine tuned. Once operational, it was our ongoing responsibility to keep the environment safe, secure and properly updated.
Cloud computing has provided us with a new alternative. We can now have part or all of our environment in the cloud rather than on premises. Technically speaking, it means we have the option of relocating to a cloud provider’s datacenter by subscribing to their hardware and software services.
There are some compelling reasons to adopt cloud computing. It saves time by greatly reducing the complexity of the setup and administration of IT environments. It could reduce capital and operational costs since there are usually no upfront fees and charges only apply to usage of services.
