Recently, cloud computing has revolutionized the way businesses operate. Studies from Statista show cloud computing is estimated to save businesses up to 81% in hardware costs and 77% in software costs. Cloud environments provide a cost-effective way for businesses to process, store, and access data, software, and other computing resources over the internet. A key advantage that a cloud environment has over other competing solutions is its ability to recover from a disaster with ease. Let us explore why compared to other solutions – cloud computing is stress-free. 

Automated Backup and Recovery

In a traditional IT environment, backups are often performed manually, which tends to be time-consuming and can potentially lead to errors. In contrast, cloud computing software can provide small, mid, and enterprise businesses with automated backup and recovery. Essentially, the cloud service provider takes care of the backups, ensuring that they are performed both regularly and consistently. In the event of a disaster or incident, the provider can quickly restore the data and applications from the backups, reducing downtime and minimizing the risk of data loss.

Disaster Recovery Plan 

Another advantage of cloud computing is working with your cloud service provider on the creation and enforcement of a disaster recovery plan. Cloud service providers specialize in creating processes and procedures for backing up data, replicating data across multiple geographic locations, and ensuring that applications are available in the event of a system failure. With a steady DR plan, organizations can be confident that they can quickly recover from a disaster with minimal disruption to their operations.

Scalability and Accessibility 

Cloud computing solutions are both highly scalable and provide employees of small, mid, and enterprise-sized organizations with remote access to data and applications. 

Speaking on the scalability side, businesses can quickly add or remove computing resources as needed. On-premise infrastructure can be expensive to purchase, maintain and replace, but with cloud computing, if a business experiences a sudden surge in demand for its services, the organization can quickly scale up its computing resources to meet the demand. Similarly, if a business experiences a system failure, it can quickly scale down the computing resources to minimize the impact. 

Providing employees with remote access to data and applications can be a risky business. Remote work has changed the game, as it has allowed employers and employees the flexibility to work on the go. Securing the multitude of endpoints your organization has is critical to ensuring there is no breach. If this topic is of particular interest, our team wrote more in-depth on it previously. 

Cost Savings 

Lastly, for our financial-minded audience, cloud computing can be more cost-effective, which is a significant advantage for any size organization. Businesses can avoid the high costs associated with setting up and maintaining an on-premise IT infrastructure. Additionally, cloud computing is pay-as-you-go (or better classified as an operating expense) meaning that businesses only pay for the resources that are in use. This in turn makes it easier for businesses to manage their costs and ensures that they can recover from a disaster without incurring significant expenses. 

In conclusion, recovering from a cloud environment is stress-free as cloud computing offers automated backup recovery, disaster recovery plans, scalability and accessibility, and lower costs. These advantages make it easy for businesses to recover from a disaster, ensuring they can continue to operate with minimal disruption.
