Do you remember the days when productivity software and applications used to come in versions, and those too were spaced far and wide. Most subsequent versions of already released software were simply de-bugged and improved versions of their predecessors.
However, this was a long and painstaking process. End users had to wait for months on end, just to get minor bugs resolved, or even small functionalities added to the existing ones. While this might have been ok back then, it is no more an option right now.
Present day users, whether in the capacity of an employee, customer or end user, want and expect nearly instantaneous response to the issues that they face. Legacy infrastructures and development techniques are no longer effective in this day and age.
The Evolution of Cloud Technologies
Cloud computing solutions made initial headway due to the even now popular concept of Software as a Service (SaaS). The flexibility being offered by SaaS based cloud models is making its way to Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and Platform as a Service (PaaS).
In the realm of IaaS, leading Cloud Service Providers (CSP) like dinCloud are giving even small to mid sized enterprises, access to their state of the art cloud infrastructures, with zero hardware or software management overheads attached to the service.
The same is equally true for PaaS cloud models, which give developers all across the world access to development environments, and the latest tools over the Cloud. Individual developers can’t think of procuring and maintaining such high end equipment.
The Cloud and Fast Track Evolution of Digital Technologies
What the Cloud, and Cloud Service Providers (CSP) like dinCloud have done is, they have fast-tracked the rate at which digital technologies used to evolve. It won’t be an overstatement that in the Cloud, technological evolution is always taking place.
Previously, enterprises could not even think of adopting, and then letting go of technology platforms like we have become accustomed to today. All this has become possible, thanks to the versatility and flexibility being offered by cloud providers.
Adopting a legacy infrastructure some years back could take up months, only to realize that by the time the technology was actually commissioned at the organizational level, it had either become obsolete, or it had lost the “cutting edge” it was actually meant for.
Thanks to modern day Cloud technologies and services, the consumers of this dynamic technology are almost always in a feedback loop. This results in a continuous process of improving, or optimizing the way in which workloads are currently being handled.
Rapid Trial, Commissioning and Exit via Cloud Technologies
Now, enterprises have the luxury to first try a cloud technology by taking its trial, or adopting it with no long term commitments or liabilities involved. If a certain cloud technology or service meets the expectations, then adopt it at the enterprise level.
Leading Cloud Service Providers (CSP) like dinCloud also give their users the ability to design customized Cloud Hosted Desktops, Servers and Databases that best conform to their unique preferences, while also meeting the typical financial constraints.
Cloud Services and a Distributed Workforce
The Covid-19 pandemic imposed severe restrictions on how enterprises could remain productive and up n running. Amidst these challenging circumstances, cloud technologies like Desktop as a Service (DaaS) emerged as a secure and reliable technology.
Cloud technologies like DaaS eliminated the restrictions imposed on productivity by the factors of time and space. With Cloud Hosted Virtual Desktops, remote employees could be productive from anywhere, and use any device to get their stuff done.
Technologies like DaaS not only removed these limitations, but also did so while ensuring a robust cyber security and data privacy posture. With cloud technologies, no long term commitments or hefty Capital Expenditures (CapEx) are involved.
Hybrid and Multi Cloud Add to Flexibility
This flexibility which is otherwise a characteristic of cloud technologies is further enhanced with hybrid and multi cloud environments. These enable enterprises to avail individual facets of cloud services, by the provider which is best at those.
With the multi cloud, you can potentially get the “best of all worlds” when it comes to specific cloud services like infrastructure, storage, processing, software, databases, storage or development environments.
The Cloud is playing an instrumental role in “fast tracking” the whole technology lifecycle. This in turn is giving both enterprises and end users alike, the ability to test, commission and avail some of the best digital technologies out there.
