Why Cloud Computing?

One of Directions Training’s Microsoft Technical training experts wanted you to know…

With businesses ever increasing investment in information technology, organizations are looking for more efficient methods to meet their computing challenges.

Organizations commonly struggle with the challenge of meeting their business needs in a timely, cost-effective manner. Frequently, this struggle seems like a struggle between IT and the business organization to provide and maintain the necessary services to keep the organization running smoothly.

These challenges are often the result of various conditions which prevent the implementation of the latest technologies and services to meet the ever growing needs of the business. 

Organizations frequently complain of such things as; delays in implementation of services, unfulfilled requests for services, cost overruns, and unusable systems. IT organizations are constantly faced with the challenge of meeting the business needs while being faced with inadequate time and personnel.  Additionally, many projects are underfunded, and often have no clear objective or requirements.

In order to meet the ever growing challenges of huge growth, time pressure, and the drive to keep costs low, tradition computing environments have morphed into a new approach in IT service delivery, Cloud Computing.

A cloud is defined as a collection of shared, (or multitenant) computing resources. The cloud resources are easily accessed and consumed at will by the organization. A cloud provides the following characteristics:

  • Self-service Provisioning: Using a simple interface, customers can subscribe to a cloud service and rapidly deploy resources.
  • Broad Network Access: Cloud resources are widely available and securely provide access to a variety of devices and technologies.
  • Shared Resources: Resources are shared throughout the organization and deployed where needed. This eliminates duplication of resources and lowers costs.
  • Rapid Elasticity: This provides the ability to provide resources more effectively for peak levels of consumption.
