MVP Best Practice
MVP Best Practice has been developed to make sure our partners make the correct technology decisions. The notion that it’s a good idea to move data and applications to public cloud providers, or even private clouds, is not always true. In the majority of cases, using public clouds adds a great deal of value, however, in certain instances, cloud computing doesn’t make sense.
No technology is a good fit for everything. Yet both, people and companies, like to treat new technologies as a universal silver bullet, using it where it does not make sense — a mistake they’re repeating now with cloud computing.
How can you determine if Cloud Computing is right for your company?
For almost every small business the benefits of Cloud Computing will either streamline their operation, provide better remote access, or simply save money. Some businesses are fortunate enough to be able to move their entire operation to the Cloud, others can only move a portion. So the better question to ask is:
How much of my operation can be migrated to the Cloud?
For businesses with simple operations, often their entire infrastructure can be migrated to the Cloud. For example: if your business runs with nothing more sophisticated than email, Office documents and QuickBooks–there’s no compelling reason to maintain an in-house server: these systems can be cost effectively migrated to the Cloud.
For businesses with more sophisticated requirements, software applications that are not cloud-friendly, or high amounts of data (IE: terabytes), a hybrid-cloud solution is great way to leverage the benefits of Cloud computing without breaking the bank. For example: a business with a high volume of large, graphically-intensive files may opt to keep this data on-premise where it can be cheaply stored and efficiently manipulated, while migrating their email, Office documents and accounting software to the Cloud to reduce the number of in-house servers to maintain.
