How the Cloud is Powering the Growth of Artificial Intelligence

The convergence of public cloud providers and artificial intelligence (AI) innovation is responsible for the development of powerful new applications and services. Some of these products, such as personal assistants Siri or Alexa, are designed to be used by individuals to streamline daily activities. They demonstrate some of the power inherent in AI in apps backed by the big data resources available in the cloud.


The Advantages of Cloud-Based Disaster Recovery

Disaster recovery (DR) is an essential activity necessary to protect the viability of modern information technology (IT) environments. Organizations need to have verifiable plans for addressing sudden outages so they can quickly restore and maintain access to business-critical systems. Failure to conduct proper disaster recovery planning and testing puts a company at significant and unnecessary risk.


How to Protect Cloud Resources From Ransomware

Infection with ransomware is a problem that can impact any type of computing environment. With more companies opting to house major infrastructure components in the cloud, protecting these resources from infection with ransomware has become a high priority for IT security teams. 


Cloud Computing Options Are Still Expanding

Cloud computing is growing exponentially. It continues to get into many industries without signs of slowing down. With the pandemic, the global public cloud infrastructure has grown even faster than initially expected. As predicted by Forrester research, the global COVID-19 pandemic has led to increased uptake of cloud computing by about 35% in 2021 alone. Companies are seeking to invest more in this new paradigm in 2021 and beyond. Here are some cloud computing trends you should expect in 2021.


How Advanced Clouds Make a Difference

Although the term “cloud computing” is often used to the extent that one may think cloud computing platforms are the same, the truth is that not all clouds are created equal.  Despite the difference that may exist, all clouds depend on the same server hardware that forms the backbone of any computer network. The difference between the traditional and the advanced cloud is the processing power and storage capacity of the available hardware over the internet.


The Benefits and Limitations of Private Cloud Storage

When cloud computing is mentioned, many people immediately think of public cloud software as a service (SaaS) and platform as a service (PaaS) offerings available from major vendors like Microsoft and Amazon. These large providers offer any company a wide variety of computing solutions including the ability to obtain virtually limitless storage capacity. The popularity of these products is evident in the number of companies that are migrating systems to the cloud and taking advantage of new services rolled out by providers.


Is Cloud Computing Good for the Environment?

There are environmental costs associated with almost every type of human endeavor. This is certainly the case with cloud computing, although this use of technology can also provide benefits to the world’s environment. Let’s look at the environmental benefits, costs, and how the greening of the cloud can change the equation in the future.


Cloud Solutions Enable Any Company to be HIPAA Compliant

Organizations operating in the U.S. healthcare sphere are subject to data privacy regulations first defined in the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996. Failure to adhere to the standards reading the handling of Protected Health Information (PHI) can lead to substantial fines. Financial penalties are administered according to a tiered structure, with maximum fines exceeding one million dollars. 


Consolidating Cloud Computing Systems

It’s no longer a secret that the cloud computing revolution has helped businesses achieve many things, most of which could not be attained through the traditional server systems. In the process, many on-premise software platforms have died a natural death leading to the rise of other cloud-based platforms such as Office 365 and Google Docs, among others. These cloud-based software systems have successfully sent the local word processors towards extinction, something that no one ever thought of a decade ago. Storage-as-a-service has replaced data servers used to fill server rooms in organizations’ back offices, while virtual machines have supplanted the on-premise app servers. With the rising adoption of the cloud, server consolidation has gained popularity. It is a way of making use of efficient hardware and software resources to save costs, considering the fact that many servers are often under-utilized.


Consider Your Cloud Investments This Way

The efficiency of a business operation is crucial for productivity. However, the out-of-date systems that many organizations employ are sometimes the leading hindrance to performance and business productivity. However, cloud computing is an excellent way of improving and streamlining business operations by enabling staff to share documents and collaborate over the internet. Despite the usefulness of the cloud, how the enthusiasts think about the performance of the cloud and how they measure its ability is often wrong.
