Cloud Computing has gained widespread acceptance as a means to steady growth. The ‘cloud’ harnesses the power of the internet to offer various pay-per-use hosted services- servers, storage, networking, data centers and applications- on demand. By eliminating the need for heavy capital investment, it enables a paradigm shift in infrastructure management practices.
Need for cloud adoption
Cloud Services means off-the-shelf, reliable and easily scalable data storage services. All this at lower costs, while eliminating the need for maintenance activities such as updates, purchase of multiple licenses, or creating backups.
Then why do organizations hesitate to switch to the cloud?
A major concern related to cloud adoption is lingering fears over the security of the data on the cloud. Despite the easy access to cloud services such as Google and AWS, only about 10% of world data is stored on the cloud.
However, enterprises can rest assured. Leading cloud provider AWS provides reassurance that your data on the cloud is safe. Adequate and constantly upgraded measures to protect data is their primary focus. All data –stored and in transit –is encrypted and there are more than 1800 security controls to protect data flowing through their cloud.
SLAs defined by cloud providers are often ambiguous and complex. The legalities involved are not explicitly defined. This makes the customers wary about the support and the business continuity. In many cases customers do not understand what they are signing up for and end up being disappointed. Unfortunately, this lack of transparency translates into customers’ loss of faith in the cloud.
Cloud service providers often promise to provide out of the box services, to lure customers. A key element that makes cloud services attractive is the fact that they are not bound by any contracts. Yet, once the customer is on-boarded, some service providers try to convert them into captive customers by denying the right to exit the services. This makes customers apprehensive of moving to the cloud.
In spite of all the apprehensions the cloud adoption numbers are still growing
