For the longest, it was assumed that only large enterprises could afford and harness the benefits of cloud computing services in scaling their business. But from the past few years the cloud adoption by all types of businesses (small, medium and large) has increased to 96 percent.
Today, Amazon Web Service is considered one of the popular options for small and medium companies in starting their cloud journey to scale up their businesses. Because of its super flexibility and a wide variety of services, it has become SMEs go-to for cloud services.
Setting up your business’s cloud journey can be a rollercoaster ride of challenges. Let’s unlock 5 ways how AWS can make it a less daunting experience for you:
1 – Cost-effectiveness & super flexibility
In-house data management for a small/medium business can become a nightmare for you considering the cost required for it. The process of managing data at your own storage location is complex and can cost you dollars. Moverover, the data management process itself is a complicated task that can deviate you from your core business operations. Making you lag behind your business goals.
By setting up your Amazon Web Service cloud storage, you only have to pay for the storage space based on your needs. It offers you super flexibility in scaling up or down your business depending on your requirements and market demands in a cost effective, startup-friendly way.
2 – Eliminates infrastructure expense
Managing your data and applications in-house can make you invest in expensive IT infrastructure, a little too much for SMEs! It’s only better to adopt cloud services and get yourself rid of heavy IT infrastructure expenses.
With AWS you are able to pay only for the services that you actually use. It also takes care of the data management and administrative system expenses. Letting you minimise or totally eliminate the hardware and infrastructure costs and invest in core operations for business growth.
3 – Runs Operations on the Cloud
It is ideal for a small business to run all or some of the functions from the cloud and reduce the operational expense. AWS offers you stellar services of sharing documents and desktop visualization which helps you run and streamline all the business operations on the cloud in a seamless and easy way.
With this service you or any of your team members can access your data, apps or documents from any part of the world at any time using a visual desktop or a PC. This service helps you build and support a remote working environment for your startup. Letting you cut-down on operational cost.
4 – Service management & maintenance
Many small businesses are skeptical about migrating to cloud due to their lack of technical know-how and skills for service management and maintenance. But with AWS providers being at your back, you don’t have to dwell on it. Almost every AWS provider offers you all the service maintenance and technical support that you may need throughout your AWS cloud journey.
The providers take care of all the technical aspects of the service and make it suitable for your business setup. It lets you embrace agile and devOps methods in your operations without burdening your less sophisticated in-house technical assistance team.
5 – Easy app hosting & data migration
The process of application deployment and management becomes really easy if you choose to host your applications on AWS cloud. It helps you scale up your applications, balancing app load and monitoring apps in an efficient manner. The easy app hosting allows your business to better cope with the trends in the fast-paced markets.
You don’t have to heavily invest in migrating your servers, data and applications in-house. AWS providers can become rescuers and save you from expensive and complex data migration processes by providing you exclusive yet cost-effective migration service.
