In the last couple of years, we’ve witnessed the evolution of cloud computing which today redefines the way we do business. IT executives are no longer looking at the cloud solely as a tool; now the focus has shifted towards finding the right way to use it. Business owners are no longer doubting the benefits of the cloud; now they are looking for the right cloud strategy that fits their business needs and expectations.
Talking about trends, many IT pros believe that 2018 will be the year when multi-cloud strategies will become the norm in IT.
Here is why adopting a multi-cloud strategy is the way to go for your business.
First and foremost, let’s define what a multi-cloud strategy is. Simply said, a multi-cloud strategy is the use of two or more cloud computing services. With such strategy you can choose the best services from different cloud platforms and combine them to create the best possible solution for your business. Such a solution is offered by SkyFlok, a multi-cloud storage aggregator designed to help small business owners run their business smoothly by offering them an easy to use desktop application to store and share data privately across multiple data storage providers across the globe.
There are many benefits of implementing a multi cloud strategy. We are going to mention some of the most important ones and explain how a multi-cloud strategy can be beneficial for your business.
1.Improved availability and performance
To keep users happy and ensure high performance and availability IT teams can implement a multi-cloud approach.
At SkyFlok we are distributing workloads across multiple IaaS CSPs which maximizes fault tolerance by utilizing redundancy in infrastructure and software thus optimizes availability and performance.
The need to limit and reduce cloud expenses is always a leading consideration when choosing a new strategy for your organization. Finding the right combination of cloud providers to fit your business needs and your budget can give your company an extra boost of efficiency while dropping your costs.
We all like to have a freedom of choice, especially when choosing a product/service we are paying for. Luckily, a multi-cloud strategy gives you many choices in different aspects. Using SkyFlok, you have the choice to select the cloud providers you like best. Just like all other services, cloud providers are different and by implementing a multi-cloud strategy you are giving yourself the right to choose between all of them. Another choice a multi-cloud strategy gives you is the choice of location of the cloud where your client data is stored. Company administrators can select which underlying cloud storages should be used to distribute the file contents. Doing so you have a full control over your data which ensures the security and privacy of your data.
Managing multiple clouds might look difficult and time consuming at first sight. The reality though is different! With our multi-cloud storage, you have on one hand the opportunity to use your favorite cloud platforms and manage all of your accounts from a single cloud management interface. On the other hand, you don’t need to worry about paying many different bills at the end of the month. A multi-cloud storage means – many clouds, one bill.
5.Risk mitigation and security
Last but not least, we need to talk about the risk factor and the security which is one of the biggest concerns when it comes to storing and sharing files online. From easier and faster disaster recovery to affordable redundancy and fewer single points of failure, our multi-cloud storage delivers very good risk mitigation. Spreading the services across multiple platforms minimizes the possibility of downtime and data loss, as processes can failover to other systems. Our cloud storage technology enables increased data accessibility and security! You can finally stop wasting your time and energy on trying to protect your files and start focusing on other important things for your business!
With such a rich mix of benefits, no wonder the new trend in cloud computing is companies adopting the multi-cloud model. Do not stay behind times, keep your business up-to-date and let us help you change the way you work!
