Cloud computing is becoming the standard for hosting digital and technology services, and providing full end to end solutions that can be configured. Cloud services can also provide telephony and video services, and provide the storage and back-up solutions for your organisation.
There are a three core principles that cloud computing should meet:
Scaleable – the ability to increase and decrease computing resource as required
Multi-tenancy – sharing resources with other organisations securely to enable scalability, and reducing cost
Resilient – due to the multi tenancy and scalable nature, resilience should be built in with no single point of failure
However, to most organisations there are additional essential requirements that are critical in their decision to use the cloud for business critical services:
Security – access and data should be secured to the highest standards
Data and Assurance – data should be kept safe (encrypted) and secure, and the geographical location of data should be understood
Exit Strategy – service data should be transferable when the time comes to move from one cloud provider to another
