Are you an developer or an software administrator?
If you answed Yes, why would you then want to look after or upgrade server hardware ever again?
You should focus on the future of your applications /business not on when harddisks / motherboards needs to be replaced. Another great thing is scaling your business in a cloud enviroment. Traditional you have to size the server after the biggest load. But with a real cloud based solution you can change the size so it fits your needs or the provider does this for you. But you should choose your cloud provider wisely because the service they offer is not the same. These are some things that I thing is important.
- Ownership of data
- Speed of access to service
- Price when scaling service
- Backup and Restore of data
- User management / Single signon
The bottom line is by using a cloud based infrastructure your needs can scale when your business does and you don’t have to wait for new servers to be installed. Your business can grow freely and without any limitations that’s the greatness with a cloud based IT infrastructure.
