5 reasons why businesses migrate to the cloud
4 minute read

Enterprise cloud computing enables businesses to reduce costs while improving resiliency, flexibility, and network security. Most businesses have already adopted some form of an enterprise cloud solution, and many more are on their way. In this article, we'll explain the top 5 reasons to move to the cloud.

More and more businesses are migrating their hardware and software to the cloud, either entirely or partially. Check out the top 5 reasons to change to cloud hosting for businesses. 


More scalable and flexible

One of the most significant benefits of online cloud computing is its incredible scalability. In addition, no other product can match its flexibility. One of the benefits of a cloud solution is that it allows you to let your projects evolve alongside your organization. Tilaa helps you to (re)configure your cloud storage to meet your specific needs with just a few clicks. When compared to owning servers, there is a significant difference in that they must be ordered, delivered, installed, and configured.


Improved server uptime

Failing IT in today's 'always on'-society is a disaster for every business. Every second that a server is unavailable costs you money. This problem could be eliminated with cloud storage because you will no longer be hardware-dependent. When you choose cloud compute for your business, you will be completely unburdened, with maximum core network uptime and minimal network disruption risks. As soon as the cloud detects that a component is about to fail, the workload is transferred to another server, ensuring that you remain online at all times while barely noticing. One of the most significant advantages of cloud hosting is the uptime guarantee, which dedicated hosting lacks.


Better security

A decent cloud provider employs a multi-layered security model. There are external layers (for example, physical security of the data center and servers, network safety, secure connections, and so on), but there is also layering within the cloud itself (virtualized firewalls for each virtual server for example). Choosing a secure cloud solution entails primarily selecting a dependable supplier.

The ISO 27 0001 certification establishes how companies (in this case cloud partners) deal with information security and how they protect their systems and working methods against data leaks and threats from outside. So if your company is looking for a cloud partner, make sure it has the ISO 270001 certification. Only this way, you can be sure that all information is secured and safe. 


Improved accessibility 

Cloud hosting offers you the possibility to access your network from any corner of the world. This has the advantage that your employees can always work on a project regardless of where they are located. So you are no longer stuck to a physical office and you have the freedom to work exactly as you want.


Lower costs

Cloud hosting is also advantageous from a financial perspective. When you use the cloud, you do not have to buy any more hardware yourself. So you no longer have Capital Expense (CAPEX). From now on, your infrastructure budget is entirely an Operational Expense (OPEX). You only pay for what you really need. Due to the scalability and flexibility we have mentioned earlies, you also know your costs in advance. They go hand in hand with your income: you grow when necessary and you only pay more when your income rises.
