Drei Vorteile der Datenspeicherung in der Cloud

Drei Vorteile der Datenspeicherung in der Cloud

In der Cloud können Unternehmen Informationen speichern und darauf zugreifen und dabei bestimmte Kostenstrukturen und Schwierigkeiten vermeiden, die mit On-Premises-Lösungen verbunden sind. „Cloud-Computing ist ganz einfach eine bessere Art, ein Geschäft zu betreiben“, meint Branchenexperte Marc Benioff. Doch kann der Gesamtwert einer Cloud-Strategie in jedem Fall auch von spezifischen organisatorischen Gegebenheiten und der Durchführung abhängen. So ist Mark Hurd von Oracle der Meinung, dass Unternehmen diesen Wert auch weiterhin finden werden. Er rechnet damit, dass „80 Prozent aller Unternehmen ihre Rechenzentren bis 2025 schließen“ und auf Cloud-Services umsteigen werden. Hier ein paar Beispiele für die Vorteile, die sich durch Datenspeicherung in der Cloud erzielen lassen.
