Three Big Cloud Computing Myths

When you think of cloud computing what do you think of? Do you think it’s a short-term fad, a risky move for businesses, and it’s really pricey? These are some of the most common myths about cloud computing. We will explore these myths a little further below.

Myth: Cloud Computing Is a Fad

Many companies use cloud computing now-a-days, and not just privately operated small business, but large companies like Amazon, Apple, and Google. In fact, these organizations use the cloud to deliver their services more effectively and easily to consumers. Cloud computing makes it much easier to share information so companies are jumping on board. Given the number of large companies who have incorporated it into their service offering, I do not think the cloud will be dissipating any time soon.

Myth: The Cloud Is Risky

Many companies are hesitant to adopt cloud computing for fear that their data will be more exposed to hackers. It doesn’t help that there have been a few instances of high-profile outages, such as one that recently hit Amazon Web Services. These events are likely to stick in our memories. However, if this is something you are concerned with, there are options apart from putting all of your important data on a public cloud. Manage Services Providers offer cloud services on a private cloud where your data is very secure. One benefit to this is that if your information is stored in the cloud, multiple people in your company can have access to it. Additionally, if your hard drive crashes, you won’t lose all your data.

Myth: Cloud Computing Is Costly

As with any service, if a company wasn’t previously paying for it, it becomes an added expenditure. But while a company may pay more upfront, in the long run they will spend less on labor, as being able to share information over the cloud is much more efficient. All in all, cloud computing is more cost effective.
