3 huge reasons to migrate your IT infrastructure to the Cloud

There are few things as divisive as cloud computing. Actual fist fights have started over discussions about whether it’s a good idea to migrate your IT infrastructure to the Cloud.

There are few things as divisive as cloud computing. Actual fist fights have started over discussions about whether it’s a good idea to migrate your IT infrastructure to the Cloud.

Whether you’re ready to jump right on the Cloud bandwagon or are standing with pitchforks at the ready, there’s no escaping the fact that cloud migration has some very undeniable benefits. Check out our top three reasons below, and then you be the judge.

1. It’s cheaper

Sure, you might dream of storing everything on your very own state-of-the-art infrastructure, one that’s constantly updated by a team of dedicated experts who never have to sleep and magically appear at a moment’s notice to troubleshoot whenever problems arise.

Unfortunately, in the real world, maintaining and keeping your own infrastructure up-to-date, not to mention actually purchasing the necessary hardware and software in the first place, is expensive. Migrating everything to the Cloud makes a lot more sense for businesses without big budgets.

2. It’s less complicated

Maintaining your own infrastructure isn’t rocket science, but it’s close. Sure, things change. But in the world of servers, they change faster than a teenage girl’s Facebook feed.

Constant updates can be exhausting to keep up with, and when bad things happen, the IT department has to work overnight to solve problems that are made all the more confusing by the fact that not everything is accessible online.

In comparison, cloud computing is laughably easy to use. So easy, in fact, that you can finally stop feeling like you’re running an IT business (unless you are) and concentrate on your actual work.

3. It’s accessible from anywhere

An IT professional’s worst nightmare is receiving a frantic call in the middle of the night about how the server has gone under and the company’s life depends on him—especially when he’s on vacation 100 miles away.

Such a scenario is virtually impossible when you’ve got everything on the Cloud. Any team member with an Internet connection can gain instant access to whatever is stored on the Cloud no matter where they are, which is fantastic for businesses with personnel in multiple locations.

 

While detractors of the Cloud might butt in with sophisticated arguments, they say the simplest reasons are often the most compelling—and it doesn’t get any simpler than this.
