With the advantage of cloud computing, you can scale capacity up and down. This often proves to be a huge advantage over competitors without access to that same elastic capacity. You can respond quickly to your changing business needs and the resource demands of your business, scaling quickly, gaining access to enormous processing power and paying only for the capacity you use – all while avoiding the investment and maintenance of the hardware needed to make it possible.
In most cases, the actual capacity needed for a given project will vary over time – from ramping up a project to testing, troubleshooting and consumer demand needs. That means that a company purchasing and maintaining server equipment and facilities is rarely getting the maximum use out of their investment. It’s almost always less efficient than a more fluid cloud model. Cloud computing allows users to scale their needs easily and quickly, without concern for the upfront costs of expensive equipment. Capacity can be scaled up for temporary workloads then scaled back down afterward. You pay only for what you need and save on the cost of maintaining unnecessary capacity.
Cloud computing and colocation can help free up time for your IT staff to focus on less mundane, more mission critical tasks. Not only will they spend less time maintaining servers, but the automation of deploying and provisioning resources made possible by cloud computing allows IT admins to maintain more resources in less time.
Meeting data control standards is critical. C Spire maintains an Attestation for SOC Compliance as well as a successful risk assessment for adherence to HIPAA requirements. C Spire is additionally PCI-compliant.
