Cloud computing advantages

This post explains the cloud computing advantages related to Microsoft Azure as well as other servers. Before all let’s understand what is the “Cloud Servers/Computing”.

“Cloud computing is the delivery of computing services: including servers, databases, storage, software, networking, analytics, and intelligence: over the Internet to offer faster innovation, flexible resources, and economies of scale.”

 

What are the Advantages?

  • Geo Distribution
    You can deploy apps and data to regional data centers around the globe, thereby ensuring that your customers always have the best performance in their region.
  • High Availability
    Depending on the service-level agreement (SLA) that you choose, your cloud-based apps can provide a continuous user experience with no apparent downtime, even when things go wrong.
  • Disaster Recovery
    By taking advantage of cloud-based backup services, data replication, and geo-distribution. You can deploy your apps with the confidence that comes from knowing that your data is safe in the event of disaster. Cloud-based services provide quick data recovery for all kinds of emergency scenarios, from natural disasters to power outages.
  • Elasticity
    You can configure cloud-based apps to take advantage of auto scaling, so your apps always have the resources they need.
  • Scalability
    Apps in the cloud can scale vertically and horizontally

 

There are three deployment models for cloud computing: Public Cloud, Private Cloud, and Hybrid Cloud. Each deployment model has different aspects that you should consider as you migrate to the cloud. We’ll discuss about this later.
