Weighing the thought for the Cloud
Many businesses are facing evolving challenges of keeping services up 24×7. A decade
ago, mid-size businesses typically used 3COM modems to hook on to ISP platforms
for Internet and Email services. Server rooms were powered down at close of business
and brought up the next day. These were the norms back in time!
The landscape is however fast-changing. No meaningful organization can afford to
shutdown services at off-hours. Consequently, organizations have to bear the additional
overhead of sustaining power, cooling and connectivity. Some businesses even maintain
secondary data centers for disaster recovery and business continuity purposes thereby
doubling overhead costs.
A safety net then came in a name we had hitherto ascribed to the lumpy forms in
the sky. At the mention of the cloud, any uninformed CEO will think of bear exposure
of organization information asset to the public domain.
Depending on the security architecture of cloud platforms, on-premise infrastructure
are no better bunkers than a carefully designed Private Cloud. Also public cloud
platforms like OFFICE 365 have undergone stringent scrutiny in their designs to
ensure adequate security if managed by qualified persons.
