5 Truths About The Public Cloud

Be in-the-know before you jump to the Cloud

The public cloud has become the new ‘must have’ in today’s IT industry. The idea of deploying applications, adding the resources you need, paying for what you use — all without having to worry about managing or hosting the underlying hardware — is genius…who wouldn’t want that?

It has evolved the mentality of IT decision makers from asking “what’s our infrastructure strategy?” to “what’s our cloud strategy?” — leaving many with the long-term goal of moving everything to the cloud.

But how much do you know about the business limitations of the cloud? Before you fully adopt the public cloud, you may want to consider some of the pain points below and compare the benefits of the private cloud as an alternative.

1. Unpredictable Application Uptime: The public cloud doesn’t guarantee your application’s uptime, which can be detrimental to your business and affect customer satisfaction.

Can your business afford downtime of your business-critical applications?

2. Unpredictable performance: Your applications are in constant contention with shared hardware resources in the public cloud, leading to latency and unpredictable performance.

Can you guarantee that your business-critical applications will perform as needed when you can’t control the entire cloud?

3. Ballooning costs: It’s like taking a taxi — every minute you run a VM in the public cloud, the taxi meter adds on — if you want more resources, you’ll have to pay more. After a month, what originally seemed like a marginal expense can balloon up and become a major budget busting problem.

Are you ready for cloud costs?

4. Compliance Limitations: Adhering to compliance regulations become challenging when your systems and data live off site in the public cloud.

Can you ever truly be confident that the cloud can meet your compliance requirements?

5. Restricted Visibility and Control: Before you go all into the public cloud, consider if the restrictions on control, performance, and data are the right match for your mission-critical applications.

Is the public cloud the right business decision for you?

Now there is an alternative solution that provides the power of the cloud with performance and reliability of on-premises infrastructures….
