Cloud technologies became the leading IT-branch in 2017 and those who have already applied them, effectively optimize the enterprise`s IT-structure. And those who are little acquainted with it and did not come to moving data to the cloud use hybrid options.

Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure are the examples of the most successful and efficient growing foreign companies.

Who benefits from moving to the cloud?

  • IT-companies engaged in software development and its testing
  • IT companies, using migration to the cloud as a platform for making use of new applications
  • IT companies that choose to move data to the cloud, such as websites, digital projects
  • IT-companies that prefer using the Mobile version, because cloud solutions perfectly adapt to various devices, no matter what they are, either a tablet or smartphones or laptops etc.

IT-companies that have moved their components of business processes into the clouds (legal information, sales applications, innovations, developments)

  • IT companies that try to see their steps ahead and optimize their actions to move to the cloud, so they move the data centers entirely. They believe that the time for a technological abrogation of their platforms will come
  • IT-companies which are ready to do everything in terms of migration to the cloud. The entire IT infrastructure is subject to migration

Who should and shouldn’t move into the cloud?

Let`s dispel the myths about migration to the clouds and try to understand who should use the cloud service, and who should take into consideration other options:

  • If your resource, either an online store or a blog, or an enterprise site may not have a tendency to high growth or loaded traffic, then the use of VPS is more efficient. Migrating to the cloud is not recommended.
  • if your resource has a traffic load or a seasonal increase in activity, then you need to migrate to the cloud.
  • Clouds can be used to cope with temporary or maximum loads. With such loads, additional servers join, however, in the absence of such need and economy, unnecessary resources are disactivated. Moving to the cloud is recommended.

For start-up companies, conducting their activity within a small starting capital, application of cloud services is just saving. You do not need to think about building a large-scale infrastructure, maintaining it up-to-date, hiring qualified IT specialists and backing up data. Therefore, migration to the cloud is recommended.

Almost all companies come to realization that you need to do something with the accumulated information. It must be managed – protected, compressed as much as possible, copied as necessary and checked for relevance. Moving to the cloud is recommended.

The process of an effective business process excludes the presence of any malfunctions or force majeure situations. Therefore, to exclude the risk of a major failure, it is recommended to use cloud services, because virtual servers are protected from similar events. At your disposal are various reserve options – cold, warm, hot. Using clouds is recommended.

One of the trending methods of using a virtual server is to create a platform for projects testing, researching and developing. It is modern and safe. Moving to the cloud is recommended.

Among the major advanced companies, there are those who found it profitable to perform a full migration to the cloud, not to be distracted by the creation and support of infrastructure, but to conduct business.

Why companies are not hurrying to the clouds

  • Doubts about the speed of data transfer
  • Payments abroad
  • Foreign-speaking support
  • Misunderstanding of the work principles

In fact, these problems are solved by the IT integrator when migrating to the cloud. Migrating to the cloud presupposes a series of activities that requires skills and experience, not to entail downtime for the organization’s work. Therefore, often the right decision is to pass such a function of the company to IT integrator. We provide such services as: planning the optimal scheme of work (fully cloud architecture or hybrid), calculating the economic effect of moving to the cloud, developing a migration plan, implementing the migration to the cloud, supporting cloud solutions such as Azure, AWS, and other less popular ones.

So, what`s a cloud?

Classic IT

The system administrator: is responsible for the operation of servers, applications, databases, IT security, deals with networks and storage, as well as virtualization.

Infrastructure as a service IAAS

The system administrator: deals with applications, databases, IT-security

Provider: deals with servers, data storage, as well as virtualization.

Example: hosting

The platform as a PAAS service

System administrator: deals with applications

Provider: is responsible for the servers operation, databases, networks, IT security, data storage, as well as virtualization.

Example: Windows Azure by Microsoft

Software as a SAAS service

Provider: is responsible for the servers operation, applications, databases, networks, IT security, data storage, and virtualization.

Example: Virtual Office Office 365

What`s in the end?

We saw that depending on the situation and specific circumstances, you can give preference to your own server and virtual in the cloud. Often, cloud servers are more expensive than “terrestrial” servers, and they can’t solve all the problems, but they are always up to date and ready for work.
