What is Enterprise Cloud Computing



What is Enterprise Cloud Computing

you have big ideas to streamline your business and drive sales through the roof but to get there your ideas leaving business apps and business apps have always been too expensive especially in times like these behind each one is a world of complexity they need a data center with office space, power, cooling, bandwidth, networks, servers and storage, a complicated software staff and a team of experts install configure and run them.


you need development, testing, staging, production and failover environments and when there's a problem good luck you call technical support and they don't know so they blame someone else oh and when new versions come out wood upgrade but that might bring the whole system down now this is often for one app once you  multiply these headaches across dozens or many apps it is easy to ascertain why the biggest companies with the best IT departments aren't getting the apps they need, small businesses don't have a chance.


cloud computing is a better way to run your business instead of running your apps yourself they run on a shared data center you just plug in like a utility this makes it fast to urge started and it cost less it's like Gmail compared to Microsoft Exchange with Gmail do you need servers and storage no, do you need a technical team to keep it up and running no, do you have to do upgrades no, when you use any app that runs in the cloud you just log in customize it and start using it that's the power of cloud computing.


this model is so much better it's changing the way we think about software not just for consumer apps it's also being used for business apps we call this enterprise cloud computing businesses are running all kinds of apps in the cloud these days including custom-built apps why because you can be up and running in a few days which is unheard of with traditional business software they cost less because you don't need to pay for all the people products facilities to run them and it turns out.


they're more scalable more secure and are more reliable than the vast majority of apps out there here's why they're based on an architecture called multi-tenancy with a multi-tenant app there isn't a copy of the app for each business that's using it it's one app that everyone shares but it's flexible enough for everyone to customize for their specific needs it's like a giant office building where everyone shares the infrastructure and services like security.


if each business can customize their own office space this means apps are elastic they can scale up to tens of thousands of users or down only a few upgrades are taken care of for you so your apps get security and performance enhancements and new features automatically.


now the way you pay for cloud apps is also different forget about buying servers and software your apps run in the cloud you don't buy anything at all it's all rolled up into a predictable monthly subscription so you only pay for what you use.


finally cloud apps don't eat up your valuable IT resources so your CFO will love it and you can focus on projects that really impact the business like deploying more apps so cloud computing is a simple idea but it can have a huge impact on your bottom line.
