The best route to the cloudCommunity Manager
Not thinking about being a pioneer but you don’t want to be the last one to move your systems to the cloud, right?
The electronic security is an industry that suffered a massive migration to the internet not many years ago, and just when its members are finishing swallow this, do we pretend to tear your servers appart and upload them to the cloud?
When we talk about monitoring centers, we talk about a sector that has been growing, installing programs in computers that would later be servers, hardwares in their offices, what we like to call “on premises”.
This has been this way from the 90s and up to the present day. I carry my personal statistics, because nowadays SoftGuard recommends a “Cloud First” scheme, but the user statistics of our system is approximately like this:
Cloud no (does not mount anything in the cloud): about 80%
Cloud too (it has a main server on premises but its backup is in cloud): 10%
Cloud first (your main server is cloud and has on-premises servers in backup): 5%
Cloud only (all your servers are cloud): 5%
This means that the conclusion is that we are in more embryonic stages than other parallel industries in technology services businesses and it is very important to consider that these figures arise from a business population that are not multinationals or large conglomerates in their majority.
SoftGuard is a system completely ready to be assembled under the “Cloud native” criteria, ready to hyperscale, and new clients turning to this soft not even think about another type of infrastructure.
There is a bunch of advantages that every user who is escalating their services to the cloud must consider:
– Technology updated always: For the system administrator, it is quite complex to raise a hardware recommendation to server today that will not fail, by little or by far, taking into account that, in both cases, their solvency will be compromised for spending a lot or for buying without thinking about the future.
– Payment per use: You can always choose a cost mechanism in which you paid only what is used in traffic, power and backup.
– Costs reduction: It is known that it can go from 20% to 30% per year, since it is not necessary to buy hardware and soft base licenses that quickly become obsolescent.
– Unlimited storage and traffic capacity: A first-line cloud-provider offers these topics in variable capacities and never have a real limit.
– Redundancy: Marks a check and that’s it, you no longer have to worry about backup copies and back-up processes. So, do we begin to climb the ladder, step by step?
