In the digital transformation journey for organisations, moving to the cloud is something that more people are beginning to embrace. However, in moving, the journey is crucial and ought to be taken carefully.
Speaking at the CIO100 Symposium and Awards, Paix Data Centre’s Managing Director Vincent Camadro talked about the journey of moving to the cloud. There are a lot of benefits that come around with moving to the cloud for firms; big and small. Generally, the performance of cloud is better as it reduces latency and outages.
Moving to the cloud will see a firm move its infrastructure to a data centre. This is just the first step of this journey as later the company will have hardware visualization, computing the data in a public cloud (hybrid cloud). The end to this journey is the multicloud.
The cloud comes with a lot of benefits. However, most companies are moving to the cloud because of its flexibility.
Camadro spoke of the benefits of moving to the cloud, urging firms to make the move and begin their journey to the cloud.
“When using the cloud, performance on connectivity gets better as there are no outages. Outages could affect mission critical workloads,” he noted.
He went ahead to mention other benefits of moving to the cloud. The features are better for analytics, Artificial Intelligence (AI), and machine learning. With the cloud it is also easier to compute and store data.
