HOW AWS ENVIRONMENT IS DIFFERENT FROM TRADITIONAL ON-PREMISE SERVICES
Cloud vs On-premise debate is no longer a debate that fuels much attention. The worldwide public cloud services market is projected to grow 21.4 percent in 2018 to total $186.4 billion, up from $153.5 billion in 2017, according to Gartner, Inc. The cloud is the new normal as quoted by many technology enthusiasts.
So let’s look at the benefits of cloud over traditional on-premise.
Scalable and high-performance: Cloud infrastructure scales on demand to support fluctuating workloads.
Cost-Effective: You pay only for the compute power, storage, and other resources you use, with no long-term contracts or up-front commitments
Secure: Cloud utilizes an end-to-end approach to secure and harden the infrastructure, including physical, operational, and software measures.
Time to market: Developing in the cloud enables users to get their applications to market quickly.
Strategic Advantage: Cloud services give enterprises a competitive advantage by providing the most innovative technology available.
Although we cannot completely write-off traditional on-premise datacenter, there are a few enterprises which tend to utilize or use on-premise datacenters for various reason starting from compliance to rigid mind-set. But most of them have a hybrid approach i.e. both on-premise and cloud.
