Cloud is not coming, it has arrived!

Migrate to Cloud

Cloud is no longer difficult for people to understand, express or accept. There were initial regulations and what not’s that did not make it through for cloud computing to become the stable of almost 95% of enterprise consumers.

If one looks at how everything started, thing were not looking good for cloud. The first and most basic issue for cloud computing was to make sense of the benefits they had to offer.

For those who did not understand that cloud was working in their benefit against a home grown full-fledged operation that runs through fully owned server farms. It was still difficult to explain how their data remained safe. Data sensitive domains such as government run businesses steered clear of cloud. However that too has changed. Why did that change transpire? Well it could have been because common sense prevailed.
