The Pros and Cons of Cloud Computing Transaction Systems
To mystify Cloud Computing, and call for even more great tech-savvy people. Often, when I talk about Cloud Computing with my clients they say: “What is the cloud and why do I want a connection?”
If you’ve read Wikipedia, and I liked its attempt to explain “Cloud Computing”: “Cloud Computing Manifesto” is a Manifesto, the “public Declaration of principles and intentions” for cloud computing providers and manufacturers.”
Even though the sellers love the term “Cloud Computing” – the term itself actually gives us the ability to explain easily, for small and medium-sized businesses, you no longer have to do everything yourself. Some of the large companies that still believe they can do it better, internally, as ” outsourcing “The cloud”. However, larger companies are forced to consider this as an option, in order to reduce costs.
There are three main events that have taken place have created in the last two years, in a kind of “Perfect storm” caused the explosion of the “Cloud Computing”:
1) The economy, which are of course affected almost all of the departments of information technology. Some of the biggest Fortune 500 companies have already reduced and the loss of some of its employees with wages higher and mandate, as a result, they also lost professional Experience (SME) in their basic skills, revenue-generating applications and systems. This makes the managers responsible for the availability of these systems, in order to survive through the use of current employees, so that they can keep working longer and longer hours, the proverbial “lights”. Adding to this problem is to keep the Smes, which many companies are very careful about what new hires and, therefore, have decided to take advantage of the mass of the people currently looking for work. Many of these companies take advantage of the benefits of a cost reduction through the adoption of low contractor prices. Contractor prices have fallen anywhere from 20% to 30% in the last three years, as the unemployed to accept lower wages and prices. This situation has worsened because of unemployment, he vowed to work three to six months to be hired, the contracts with the promise. Many companies use this to rent their advantage to promise without the intention of doing so. This is called “Try and Buy” in many staffing organizations. This creates more turnover in many departments and, therefore, less “professional Experience.”
2) the Server virtualization – The second and probably most important, that is to say, the Server virtualization. Defined as a multiple-server environments, or “virtual servers” located on a single piece of physical hardware. Companies such as VMware have revolutionized the industry, and the last four, five years have been devoted to explaining ways that you can use this technology to reduce the costs of implementation in the development of new applications of virtualization many of the common server activities, such as E-Mail, file and print. Many companies already, many of their common platforms for virtualized environments have been completed, and this cost-saving initiative of the Migration. There are many benefits of server virtualization, but the most important, as well as private companies have turned to virtualization, the hosting Provider even better. Cloud computing services include virtualization, dedicated VMware know-how and the option for “Fully Managed “Partially Succeeded”, or “Dedicated Virtual” environments of servers and network devices. This allows the company the flexibility, speed, without increasing the size of its own data center footprints and staff.
3) have a Lower Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) – In this new economy, there is a need for many companies to understand, with less resources, how to apply for a at a lower Total Cost of Ownership (TCO), with constant savings. These organizations need to be able to respond quickly enough to its customers to still flexible enough to be important and necessary “On-Demand” solutions. This has meant more effort invested in the development of applications, and less in goods-based infrastructure is needed. The areas of information technology such as PC support, help, installation of software, the automated of the Computer and the network and sub-contracting, and these are usually the first areas of a CIO is to reduce costs.
Cloud computing, therefore, represents a shift in the paradigm of the company and management with the two main sites of interest:
a) Move it from the capital spending budget, as well as a reorganization as a monthly cost of operation expenses, such as a utility. Many offers come with the possibility that the price of the user-and this is often to justify the costs through the reduction of infrastructure wages.
b) the provision of small and medium-sized companies access to sophisticated, state-of-the-art technology. The small and medium-sized companies, only to hear about virtualization, and arrived a little late to the game, can now benefit have been developed for the reduction of costs and best practices, from many vendors.
This has opened the door for hosting providers to choose the in the past, if you are offered managed services or just rack space and power. Now, the hosting provider can “spin-up” standard configurations much faster and more cost-effective. The good ones have already been created, as well as the script methodology and procedures for the creation of a virtualized, modular servers can now be hosted in “The Cloud”. This has, more and more providers offer this as a service.
“The Cloud” simplifies the access to the accommodation centres. This is the connectivity restores, connects with employees and potential customers. This is the Internet, private line (which is known as MPLS), or from site to site Virtual Private Networks (also known as VPN). This, which was born out of the traditional private networks used internally by private entities, and now expands this concept, a company favorite, hosted environment. This is now no longer shown as a cloud, or “cloud virtual”, because it is important, where the user is connected. This connection, however, in high dimensions may be available, depending on the needs of your company.
An application to move to the cloud is a complex decision, the significant positive (or negative) impact on your organization. Many providers list the pros and cons and work with your resources to help make sure that your internal infrastructure, or view or also the change in the support. This is indeed a technology implementation, it is a business decision on what is best for your organization-today and in the future.
There are many advantages to the use Of the “Cloud”, based on the needs of your company can:
If you would be the release of Large amounts of data between several offices, with the data in a virtual server an advantage.
Web-based applications that can be used without problems in people who travel without having to connect back to the office through a virtual private network (VPN), you can save a lot of time and frustration.
Cost reduction – save often, The “Cloud” you can make a lot of money, but the costs compare, you should be able to understand their own cost for the user. The hosting provider will be able to understand the cost per user and you need to personnel expenses in the same “units of measure”, to compare “apples with apples” costs. This means that you need to understand what are their costs per user, that is to say, an E-Mail to the mailbox. Once this analysis has been to understand, comparisons can easily be made.
Reduced risk of business interruption, with 24/7 monitoring of systems – because many of the operations you can do with the small templates, all of the applications and devices in a 7 x 24 x 365 basis, cloud hosting centers are a better monitor and scale, which are important for the company events.
Faster access to technology solutions with a reduction in the risk business, the hosting company is dealing with many different companies and can advise you as to the technology that can improve solutions for your business.
Access to qualified technical experts in various technologies.
Single point of accountabilityfor the technology infrastructure management and support.
The management of the “Beast” of an application, which, in some organizations, the management of an application with a huge amount of data high or entry in the cloud requires a large amount of output back to the client, or desktop, has to be considered with great care. Remember, you always have to pay the price of the bandwidth going in and out of the hosting provider to make it profitable to use.
Agility – Some of the companies have to have a careful look at the speed, you can rotate the selected hosting provider for an application. For businesses, the season peaks should always be very carefully looked at, so that the technical staff will be available soon. An example of this is the “Black Friday” the day after thanksgiving “.
