The Challenges of Cloud Computing and How to Overcome them

Cloud computing is not without its challenges. All new technologies suffer from growing pains and Cloud computing is no exception. There are a number of issues that can arise when Cloud computing. However, the benefits of Cloud computing far outweigh the disadvantages. It is a cutting edge technology that, like any new technology, has growing pains as it continues to be tweaked and improved.

Like any new technology that is still developing, Cloud computing can develop glitches that need to be taken care of. Interoperability of a Cloud can be a huge setback for a business. However, standardisation organisations are currently developing solutions to deal with this problem, and while not foolproof, are a step in the right direction. Application delivery can be a challenge and sometimes whole codes have to be ripped and replaced to make it happen. But, you do not need to worry — your Cloud vendor will work with you to resolve any issues that you may have. So, despite the challenges there are many benefits that can be derived from Cloud computing.

In fact, the beauty of Cloud computing is that you do not have to buy new equipment and you do not have to worry about a making a huge outlay of cash. Cloud computing is essentially is a “pay as you go” service. You only pay for what you use and you don’t own the technology, you just use it. In addition, you always have access to the Cloud except in those rare instances when there is down time. If you need them, support services can be tailored to meet your needs, whatever those may be so that help is always available if you need it. No matter what your needs are, rest assured they will be taken care of.

Cloud services and Cloud technology are constantly improving. They are also becoming more sophisticated. One of the most exciting developments is the applications which offer opportunities for employees to interact and collaborate with their colleagues in remote locations. This is a helpful tool that not only allows companies to be more inclusive, but more productive as well. Employees that are part of Cloud collaboration feel like they are part of a team. So, this is a huge advantage that Cloud computing can offer to businesses. There are also a variety of services that can be included in a Cloud computing package, such as video conferencing, webinars and emails.

Despite some of the challenges Cloud computing has faced in the past, it has come a long way. As times goes on, it will continue to improve, and become more sophisticated. It is a technology that has infinite possibilities and the future is very bright for Cloud computing.
