“What are the benefits of cloud computing?”
Easy question to answer, right? Cost savings. Increased performance. Scalability. The list goes on…
While these are great benefits of cloud computing, I’d argue that the most important aspect of Infrastructure-as-a-Service is the flexibility and versatility of the platform. Why? Because no two companies share identical IT environments – every company is unique and has unique infrastructure needs – and the cloud allows for flexibility and uniqueness. This is your Cloud Fingerprint.
The Cloud Fingerprint is the distinctive identifying characteristic of your IT environment. Your Operating System, the applications craft and use, how your infrastructure is networked, compliance requirements, database type/usage and peak usage times are all components of your Cloud Fingerprint. Knowing this will help you build an IT environment tailored to your specific needs.
The first step to truly benefiting from cloud computing is to build an environment that is fully customized to your specific needs.
