In recent years, the cloud has emerged as the leading technology for delivering services across industries. How have cloud technology-as-a-service solutions come to dominate the market so quickly?
- The internet continues to improve and is the backbone of delivering cloud solutions anywhere.
- Cost-effective, high-speed networks and broadband used by individuals, small businesses, and enterprises.
- Server virtualization has dramatically reduced the cost of powerful computing (possibly to a tipping point for #2)
Now, massive and extremely cost-effective datacenters around the world are hosting all the software that drives “as-a-service” apps. Businesses of all sizes and their employees can access these datacenters for services from around the world via reliable and affordable high-speed networks.
All cloud all the time? Not so fast…
Despite all the powerful advancements, we are living in a hybrid world where there is a mix of on-premises and cloud technologies.
Though cloud computing is here, organizations and their Modern MSPs need to approach cloud computing as a journey from on-premises technology to cloud computing.
During the transition, a hybrid model is a great (and often recommended) next step to gain the flexibility, scalability, and affordability of cloud computing while getting the full life and utility from existing on-premises IT.
A Modern MSP with expertise in both traditional on-premises technology and cloud computing can help customers build an intelligent solution now that will help an organization transition in the future. The right partner will help to make every investment in the cloud an investment that addresses immediate needs as well as long-term goals.
How? It’s all about the business outcomes you have in mind.
