Unlike a traditional IT environment, where software and hardware are funded up front by department and implemented over a period of months, cloud computing services deliver IT resources in minutes to hours and align costs to actual usage.
As a result, organizations have greater agility and can manage expenses more efficiently. Consumers utilize cloud computing services to simplify application utilization, store, share, and protect content, and enable access from any web-connected device.
Benefits of cloud computing services:
- Lower infrastructure, energy, and facility costs
- Rapid scalability to meet business demand
- Can access applications and content from anywhere
- Higher utilization of infrastructure investments
