Communications to the Cloud: Cloud Benefits

Cloud Computing Benefits

Cloud-Based Communications

The Cloud

  • Reduced IT infrastructure and maintenance costs, made possible by cloud approaches that include multitenancy — in which a single software instance serves multiple client organizations — and multi-instance — in which every customer gets its own software instance; both approaches allow resources and costs to be shared across a large pool of customers.
  • Greater business agility enabled by the increased scalability of IT infrastructure and the ability to provision technology resources on demand, as needed
  • The ability to provide workers with access to systems and applications regardless of their location or type of device they are using
  • Improved disaster recovery and business continuity, through the use of multiple, redundant sites offered by cloud services providers
  • Next week.
