Cloud Infrastructure Services: A Global Strategic Business Report

Follow us on LinkedIn – Cloud computing is revolutionizing the IT world, and is also triggering a shift in business models. Cloud technologies are changing the way companies and their employees function, with cloud-sharing servers enabling employees to work seamlessly across continents, data servers and wireless Internet hubs. The technology is liberating companies from the shackles of conventional IT, allowing mobile workers in a virtualized company to work from anywhere around the world with just an internet connection.

Increasing investments for securing, managing and supporting cloud computing technology is benefiting the market for cloud infrastructure services. Most importantly, transition of the technology from being a cost saving tool to a full-fledged instrument capable of furthering innovation and shoring up revenue, will spur growth in the market. Cloud infrastructure services refer to the provision of key IT infrastructure resources including servers, storage, and networking in a virtual on-demand and pay-per-use environment basis. This model of service delivery offers companies a cost effective means of accessing IT infrastructure and computing needs. The on-demand delivery of IT resources over the internet is the prime advantage offered by cloud infrastructure services, enabling enterprises to gain an edge in business agility. Infinite scalability and elasticity are other major benefits offered. The pay-per-use billing model is a compelling advantage for SMBs with limited financial resources. As small and medium sized business networks step up their efforts to build a cloud IT architecture, demand for cloud infrastructure services are poised to grow.

The 2007-09 world economic recession, set the perfect platform for the rapid evolution of cloud infrastructure services. Adoption ever since has been on the rise primarily because a financially challenged economy compels enterprises to embrace cost rationalization strategies. With companies seeking IT infrastructure solutions that are cost-effective, easy to manage, and require minimum to zero investments, cloud infrastructure services witnessed sturdy gains. Large companies, which earlier shied away from cloud computing technologies due to security concerns, are currently adopting cloud solutions encouraged and emboldened by refinements in service delivery platforms and on-demand delivery options.
