Cloud computing has definitely seen a steep rise over the years, with most of the organisations and users finding the viability of cloud as an imperative part of their social lives. There has been a huge expansion in the adoption of cloud services over the last few years as more and more organisations implement their core business processes over to the cloud. Moreover developers have also started to see this as a feasible option to have back end data sync support.
Microsoft recently also unveiled its plans that many consumer have been waiting for eagerly to help them get onto cloud computing along with the robust office architecture of the company. What is interesting to know is the fact that microsoft has implemented a form of hybrid cloud service, which can be used by large enterprises as well as small business as per their requirement. It will also make it easy for organisations to use auxiliary cloud services through standard Windows Server management. this is highly vital for those enterprises that use, core microsoft services at their backend.
Google and amazon have also been pushing cloud services among business as well as users. But it has been seen that still there are many who are reluctant of incorporating these public cloud services. Privacy and security issues are among the top most priorities of users which is why they feel reluctant to get the cloud journey underway on their own. This is why most of the organisations prefer to implement a private cloud under their own IT infrastructure which is difficult to manage and cumbersome, but provides that extra security as all of the data access is done under the corporate firewall. Microsoft in that aspect has gone a step further by implementing a hybrid cloud with Windows Server, System Center and the Windows Server systems management console running in a virtual cloud.
But at the end of the day the biggest issue on mind is that which type of cloud cloud services is ideal for the end user. The transition to cloud computing brings along with it some issues as well as well as viability factors. The elimination of IT maintenance is a huge factor after the evolution of SaaS (software as a service), PaaS (platform as a service) and IaaS (infrastructure as a service). It is a known fact that no data is ever completely secure, which is why the viability of cloud computing get interesting as it definitely provide an extra leverage to the organisation to increase productivity.
