Cloud Computing providers such as Amazon Web Services offers you a secure suite of on demand service platforms. Whether you are a large or small business it provides rapid access to low cost IT resources such as analytics, application services, compute, databases, networking, storage, security and management tools to help businesses scale and grow.
Amazon Web Services (AWS) suggest that by trading your capital expense for a variable expense there is no need to heavily invest upfront for data centres and servers before you know how you’re going to use them. Often businesses make a decision in their capacity needs and then either end up with expensive unused resources or struggling with limited capacity. AWS as a provider can achieve higher economies of scale which therefore drives down the cost for you as a pay as you go user and can achieve lower variable costs than you can get independently. It’s a little like them bulk buying!
So what can it really do for you?
Cloud computing helps you to distribute your applications in minutes to multiple regions around the world, and helps to reduce latency and provide a better experience for your customers. In a busy and fast moving world, speed and agility are vital for businesses to survive. Outsourcing to AWS will allow you to reduce your IT requirements saving time and resources allowing you to focus on what sets your business apart from the rest.
With Cloud computing, as your business needs change and grow, you can adjust your needs with a few clicks, and due to no upfront costs or commitment, you only pay for what you use.
