The Covid-19 pandemic has been around for over two years by now. Interestingly, most governments and business entities alike considered this health crisis as a short-term event, one that will go away over time.
However, the global pandemic is still powerful enough to disrupt the day to day operations of enterprises. This scenario has acted as a major catalyst for remote work, giving rise to a host of remote work scenarios, solutions and platforms.
Globally, enterprises are under an increasing amount of pressure to both adopt and consolidate any remote work solutions already in place. When it comes to evaluating remote work platforms, Cloud Computing makes a lot of sense.
By this time, the top IT related decision makers are well aware of the flexibility and the value proposition that cloud solutions bring to the table. According to a study conducted by Verizon, an overwhelming 77% of enterprises consider the Cloud as beneficial.
The surveyed enterprises believed Cloud Computing solutions had the potential to deliver the much needed competitive edge that businesses always strive for. In this post, we will cover the aspects which still make Cloud Computing the best choice in 2022.
Cutting edge cloud solutions like dinCloud Hosted Virtual Desktops deliver an unprecedented level of business mobility to the deploying enterprises. Cloud infrastructures are instantly scalable, resulting in high mobility.
Many recent studies have revealed that remote work will continue to be the new norm. So, enterprises need a platform like Cloud Computing that not only enables remote collaboration among employees, but also results in a consistent IT ecosystem.
Multi Layered Security
Since the pandemic, setting up the enterprise for remote work is just half the job done. Securing such complex IT infrastructures is the harder bit, especially in today’s complex cyber security environment.
With a top Cloud Service Provider (CSP) like dinCloud though, your enterprise gets multi layered security built into the very service. The elements of security include Firewalls, Malware and Ransomware protection, Access Management and User Authentication.
Disaster Recovery (DR) and Business Continuity (BC)
The Covid-19 pandemic has completely re-drawn the lines of DR and BC mechanisms. Some businesses even did not have a comprehensive DR and BC plan, or did not think it through to accommodate a global crisis like this pandemic.
CSPs like dinCloud, on the other hand, deliver a robust DR and BC posture to your enterprise, alongside top quality cloud services. This is achieved by providing your enterprise operations reliable failover via multiple data centers.
Even if there is a disruption at any one of the cloud provider’s data centers, your mission critical operations and processes can remain uninterrupted from one of our other highly connected data centers. This means zero to minimal downtimes, and more revenues.
At the end of the day, cost optimization is also one of the major objectives enterprises want to achieve via Cloud Computing solutions. Enterprises that go for Cloud solutions save costs firstly by transitioning from a CapEx to a purely OpEx model.
Leading Cloud Service Providers (CSP) like dinCloud bill the deploying enterprises purely for the cloud resources they actually consume. dinCloud goes a step further in cost optimization by offering a lot of value added services as part of the basic solution.
These services include the waiver of charges like data migration fees and bandwidth charges. Top notch 24/7/365 Customer Support is offered by dinCloud, free of any charge. All these aspects make cloud services a value proposition that is too good to ignore.
Long Term Sustainability
Enterprises are also now feeling the responsibility for moving towards sustainable IT infrastructures. Reducing the overall carbon footprint is a pivotal aspect of moving towards sustainable and environment friendly IT infrastructures.
A single powerful data center of a Cloud Service Provider (CSP) like dinCloud can simultaneously fulfil the needs of hundreds of enterprises. Such enterprises no longer need to deploy in-house data centers, resulting in reduction of the overall carbon footprint.
One of the most challenging aspects of the post pandemic work environment has been de-centralization of enterprise data. To further escalate data security and privacy concerns, some of the enterprise data has made its way to the personal devices of employees.
Although done with the good intention of “keeping things rolling”, such practices are posing serious threats to the security, integrity and compliance needs of enterprise data. With cloud computing, enterprises automatically achieve centralization of data.
Your IT team no longer has to worry about enterprise data falling into the wrong hands, or getting destroyed, as it resides safely within one of dinCloud’s purpose built data centers. Every remote employee has seamless access to this data, round the clock.
By now, even the skeptics of Cloud Computing solutions are advocating for adopting them, due to the obvious operational and cost related benefits that enterprises stand to achieve by transitioning to it.
Whether you view Cloud Computing from a security, flexibility, agility or cost efficiency standpoint, you will conclude that they still make a lot of sense for enterprises belonging to a wide range of industries.
