Cloud computing is a label used to describe a broad based range of online services. Company web-mail, mobile apps, websites, software applications are all examples of services that can be “hosted in the cloud”. And the number of business that are switching to cloud based solutions continues to grow.
Businesses are being attracted by the promise of the cloud’s capabilities, such as reduced operating costs, scalable architecture and mobile access. The migration of systems to the cloud offers business a savings on software, hardware, licensing, system administration, maintenance and renewal fees.
Many businesses remain concerned over security, systems, redundancy, functionality and they want to know who has access to their data. But consider that Google is built in the cloud. A computing infrastructure that allows Google to return billions of search results in milliseconds, serve 6 billion hours of YouTube video per month and provide storage for 425 million Gmail users.
The Google security model is an end-to-end process, built on over 15 years of experience focused on keeping customers safe on Google applications like Gmail and Google Apps. With Google Cloud Platform your applications and data take advantage of the same security model.
Depending on your business needs, it may be time for you to look at a move to the cloud.
