MIGRATING TO CLOUD
If you have decided that cloud is the way to go for managing your enterprise infrastructure, you need to give some thought on the migration. Migration is not a simple task and a lot of care must be given to it. It involves migrating confidential information and applications to a place where you might not have a physical access. At SparkMyCloud, we realize the importance of migration and give you unique tools and services to make the migration secure, pain-free and economical.
Advantages of the cloud
Cloud computing offers enormous advantages over traditional ways of managing information on your local desktop or in a LAN. The important advantage involves better access to the data and improved reliability & robustness. Data in the cloud can be easily mirrored and backed up in multiple geographical locations, giving you far higher reliability even if one server location is affected due to natural or man-made disasters. There is also a great advantage of scalability – where you can instantly add new servers and disc spaces to your infrastructure if your website gets a lot of hits. Thus, Cloud computing is a way of utilizing computing infrastructure – applications, data storage, accounting – on the Internet, allowing access to the data and applications from multiple locations.
