Level up your services
Deploying services to the cloud creates flexibility and frees up resources at low costs. Use capacity only when it is needed, scale up in peak load phases and otherwise optimise your budget.
Many users understand cloud services as a network drive connected to local clients synchronising data. This is just one scenario for cloud provisioning, possibilities go far beyond an 'online drive'. Clouds are server ecosystems providing capacity autonomously - computing power, storage, databases, software and applications.
How the cloud flexes its muscles.
Your company runs webservices for reaching out to customers and handling sales or e-commerce. Seasonal variation causes peak loads during high demand phases, requiring capacity. Low demand seasons produce high asset and maintenance costs as resources are running idle.
By resorting to cloud services you can meet your seasonal demands with capacity you just switch on. Transform high asset costs to low variable costs and serve your customers only when needed. Once load balancing is not necessary, securely turn off excess resources.
Paradigms have shifted.
On conventional systems an administrator selects and installs software, allocates resources, grants access rights and configures all these mechanisms.
On modern clouds the admin defines services and orchestrates the cloud itself, while the master cloud node cares about installation, database connections, staging and deployment - reducing time and costs.
Virtual Machines come preconfigured with services tailored to your needs, thus making use of CPUs more efficiently. Whenever there is demand for more resources, simply swap capacity!
