If you have not yet decided to migrate your business to the cloud, then you are in the right place.
Because today we are going to give you several reasons that will answer the famous question Why migrate to the cloud?
Before we jump right into the why we want to explain:
What is migrating to the cloud?
Well, migrating to the cloud is a move.
That’s right, you’re moving, but instead of taking your stuff with you physically, you’re moving digitally.
It is to take all IT resources, services, applications, databases, and digital assets either partially or completely to the CLOUD, that is, you will no longer have them within the hardware and software solutions you have in your company and you will make them digital.
Note that this term also applies when we move from one cloud to another.
We understand that nowadays it is rare to find businessmen or/and entrepreneurs who have not yet partially migrated their companies or ventures to the cloud.
However, it may happen that you have done this process and you are still not clear why it is so important or you are only contemplating a look at this point.
Hence, we are launching this post to give you new nuances on this topic, and here we go.
Why migrate to the cloud?
Migrating to the cloud is important because:
You will get rid of obsolete software, hardware, and unreliable firewalls that can generate problems in the medium or short term, and when it comes to expanding the work outside the company they do not work, they do not support you. Example: the home office modality, which today is one of the ways of working.
Reduction of operating costs: this is the spearhead for many companies, especially in Latin American countries.
This happens because you only pay for what you use.
You do not have to have data centers, nor have computer equipment dedicated to its maintenance, or equipment that works as a server (which is not cheap at all).
Nor will you have to pay high electricity bills, and you will have a reduction in labor liabilities since the DevOps team and system administrators will not spend their time doing backups or hardware maintenance.
At HADO, we help you reduce these costs and we will also optimize your investment during the migration process.
Security: just like when we move physically, it is very important to feel that we are in a safe place.
That is why reliable cloud providers have taken care to build their respective clouds from scratch, and their services follow the latest industry standards to reduce the risk of cyber-attacks.
And within the cloud you can request that maintenance and disaster recovery be managed within the day-to-day needs, allowing the workload of the IT team to be much lighter and easier to manage.
Scalability: this point has a lot to do with business movements.
What does this mean?
That when the business is at its peak (fat or lean cows) the business will be able to quickly adapt, either by reducing or expanding its capacity.
This can be done automatically and will not require the use of obsolete applications and/or technologies, nor a lot of time, money, and effort.
You will be able to adapt to the market with new, advanced technology, quickly and elegantly and you will feel tangible how the growth of your company is in your hands.
One example is Yedpay. This payment platform decided to migrate to the cloud after experiencing a problem in its data center.
By not needing to invest heavily in IT or in person to maintain the physical infrastructure, they obtained a 40% reduction in their costs as a result.
Availability: imagine having access 24/7 – 365 days, this is feasible when you are in the cloud.
Accessing your data and applications will no longer depend on whether or not you are in the office or the business, you can do it without any problem in any country and place as long as you have an internet connection with good speed, valid access credentials and the willingness to do so.
A clear example of this benefit is: working remotely, you have an unexpected meeting and you are on vacation in Bali and need access to certain confidential information.
These are some of the reasons we can tell you that answer the initial question of why migrate to the cloud.
However, this is the tip of the penguin’s hat at the tip of the iceberg.
