Cloud server and 5 benefits for businesses
In recent years, the Internet information technology industry has grown increasingly. Along with that development, businesses and organizations have to invest large costs for purchasing, maintaining and operating servers. However, with cloud computing technology, businesses will not have to spend too much money to own a server to serve their activities.
Of course, all businesses and organizations can still choose a virtual server or a virtual private server to be able to use it as a separate server for their needs. However, nowadays, we already have cloud servers with more advanced technology and performance.
Replacing a traditional physical server with cloud server service is a helpful method chosen by many organizations and businesses. When physical servers are exposed to high risks and the possibility of high service disruptions due to problems such as hardware device failures, long or impossible server upgrades... These dangers can cause great damage and influence on every activity of each enterprise.
With the use of cloud servers today, businesses can transfer most of their responsibility for system operation, infrastructure management, security and service quality assurance for service providers. At that time, businesses will reduce a lot of cost and can only focus on the main tasks instead of managing and controlling IT infrastructure.
Some appropriate businesses to use cloud server system:
- Enterprises that use software applications such as ERP, CRM, accounting software...
- Enterprises that use email and website, store data…
- Enterprises that produce mobile applications, games ...
Cloud servers can completely overcome the disadvantages of physical servers. They ensure that the information technology infrastructure can work continuously and effectively with outstanding 5 benefits:
1. Cost savings:
No big initial investment costs for hardware and IT infrastructure needed. Enterprises only need to pay for things that use highly qualified cloud servers.
2. The ability to narrow and expand the system quickly:
Enterprises could actively use cloud servers in each development stage of the businesses, helping their resources to be used reasonably without being wasted or redundant, leading to high efficiency.
3. Ensuring continuous operation of infrastructure:
Large-scale cloud server infrastructure in data centers meeting high standards can help the system to be ready to respond without interrupting service when incidents occur, avoid affecting important operations of the enterprise.
4. Enhancing the competitiveness of enterprises:
Cloud servers can support enterprises in accessing and using high technology, catching up with the Industry 4.0 and development trend of the world.
5. Data safety:
With cloud server, users' data is encrypted and duplicated many times to ensure its safety when it goes to the Internet environment.
