The Public Cloud is an Excellent Alternative to the Private Cloud for SMBs

The Public Cloud is an Excellent Alternative to the Private Cloud for SMBs

What kind of cloud service does your business use, if it uses the cloud? There are private clouds, hosted and maintained on-site, and public clouds, where an external business will host and provide it on a subscription basis. While there are certain scenarios in which a private cloud is quite valuable, today, we want to focus the discussion on the more common of the two: the public cloud.

The Benefits of a Public Cloud Solution

It’s Cost-Efficient

Many SMBs can offer up reasons why they don’t want to invest in a private cloud, with cost often being at the top of the list. It’s simply too expensive to host and maintain a private cloud solution for many businesses, between the infrastructure and the talent required to maintain it.

The cloud is designed to solve business problems of accessibility—specifically, problems of scale prohibiting small businesses from implementing the same expensive solutions as larger enterprises. Businesses that use the public cloud can take advantage of specific services and solutions like software, data storage, and communications platforms in a much more affordable manner by renting the space from a provider. The provider is responsible for all the heavy lifting, and SMBs benefit from having more time and resources to focus on their duties.

With a scalable cloud solution, businesses get exactly what they need and nothing more or less. And it’s all predictable and easy to fit into a budget, too!

It’s Simple

The public cloud also allows businesses many opportunities to use tools without needing to maintain them. Naturally, this is a major advantage of the public cloud and one that contributes to its usefulness.

Your IT infrastructure is far from cheap and requires a lot of capital to keep operational. Most SMBs struggle with keeping IT staff on their payroll, meaning that the required maintenance often doesn’t get done. Even those with IT staff might find that only a couple of technicians can’t keep up with the workload, thus leading to certain crucial maintenance being neglected. You shouldn’t have to add even more to their plates, and that’s where the public cloud once again shines.

The public cloud doesn't require the responsibility of your IT staff, meaning they can prioritize other tasks that are both more important and more fulfilling professionally for them. This all contributes to a leaner and more efficient network overall.

It’s Consistent

When it comes to the cloud, consistency is key. Any cloud service offering anything less than 99% uptime will likely not get much attention. Furthermore, cloud providers succeed by keeping other data safe and secure through the use of data backup, network security, and continuity.

Therefore, it makes sense that the public cloud has contingencies in place that offer consistent access to your resources, no matter what. If one server goes down, you can reasonably expect another to keep your services up and running.
