All cloud is not created the same… Do you actually know where your data is? Is the data center SSAE 16 audited? Is there 24/7 staff monitoring your systems? Is each rack locked to prevent unauthorized access. Are the services that you receive customized to properly support your needs?
It’s clear that the benefits of choosing cloud hosting providers over in-house systems are abundant—so much so, there’s no questioning which is the better option. But when it comes to the cloud, it’s important to note that not all services are created equally.
In other words, you don’t want to hire just anyone that says, “I’ll manage your cloud hosting on the cheap!” The fact of the matter is, the data you store and the programs you run through the cloud are likely the lifeblood of your enterprise, and to compromise them would be devastating. Thus, it’s important to choose wisely who you entrust with your data.
Relative to traditional means of storage, cloud hosting services are considerably more economical, faster, safer and more efficient. Here’s why you should make it a priority to hire a reputable cloud manager.
Why the Cloud Rules the World
Far more affordable than in-house servers, cloud hosting has quickly become beloved by enterprises because of its scalability and individualization. You can tailor your cloud usage to suit your company’s specific needs, eliminating the age-old idea of overpaying for storage space or services you’ll never even use.
