Reducing Costs with Dell’s Cloud Solutions
Why Business are Choosing the Cloud
Choosing to use the cloud as a storage solution offers a multitude of advantages over traditional storage options. With storing data in the cloud, you have the peace of mind to know that power failure, natural disaster, or cybersecurity threats are not putting you or your company’s digital information at stake. Cloud storage also offers companies the ability provide better service by automating tasks that have traditionally been done manually and inefficiently, simplifying provisioning of application templates, and performing complete quality assurance methodology.
With some services like Dell’s, it’s also possible to take snapshots of what is stored on the cloud and use a backup and recovery service. With all of these benefits, it is no wonder that the cloud storage industry has ballooned to about $41 billion dollars in the year 2014 and was projected to grow at a 14 percent compound annual growth rate, with a $69 billion vender opportunity by the year 2018.
Better Application Delivery Equals Lower Costs
Cloud storage options can help empower the end user to ensure they get scalable service by automating tasks in a smarter, more efficient way and providing self-service to manage a clients’ own IT services. This kind of service automation reduces the overhead for the staff necessary for the routines that would otherwise be done manually. This allows for more efficient usage of personnel to concentrate on delivering innovative applications and otherwise focusing on business goals.
A further benefit to using the cloud lies in the ability to optimize and accelerate responsiveness to business needs as they arise. Thanks to the aggregation of resources, server capacity, storage, application licenses, and other digital resources can be collaborated on and shared more effectively. This efficiency of storage and server use also reduces the strain on the network, streamlining overall quality of service. All of this equates to lower costs by efficiently utilizing staff, services and hardware, reducing the machinery and devices necessary to do the same task. With this kind of scalability, application development teams, new clientele and business cycles all can more quickly adapt to whatever need may arise in the moment.
