Cloud-computing services consumed by external service providers are expected to spend on external IT services, according to a Gartner survey which included 1,500 respondents. The market is evolving rapidly, since more than 39% of the respondents indicated that they are allocating their IT budget to online services as a key initiative while there were 46% of the respondents who indicated that they are planning to allocate a part of IT budget for cloud computing.

Right from its advent, it has been difficult to assess whether these services will play a pivotal role in the IT world along with its utility within the business’ context. Cloud computing is now claimed by analysts that it would ultimately save time and money in removing potential flaws in the initialization and planning phase and also help in concentrating on the tasks at hand as one does not have to worry about infrastructure overheads.

These solutions are scalable on demand. Here are some of the benefits offered by the services in the cloud:

Low Cost Computers for Users

You don’t need a high-powered computer to run applications if you opt for the cloud since the application runs on it. The computers can have efficient processors though. No documents need to be saved but one can keep a backup if one needs it.

Improved Performance

Computers in this system will run fast since there are fewer processes and does not eat into your limited memory.

Low IT Infrastructure Costs

Instead of investing in many servers, attention will be paid to the cloud to increase processing power only and one can thus save on a lot of money. Low end computers can help you perform critical tasks too.

Fewer Maintenance Issues

Speaking of maintenance costs, it helps in less maintenance for small-sized organizations.

Low Software Costs and Upgrades

Cloud services are always priced lower than desktop software. In fact, many companies offer apps for free. Upgrades come in quite cheap too.

Unlimited Storage Capacity

Limitless storage capacity and space amounting to petabytes (a million gigabytes) can help you to store information easily.

Increased Data Safety

Desktop computing security is not sound enough since a crash can wipe out all information. But in the cloud, a computer crash doesn’t affect any of your data.

Easier Group Collaboration

With cloud computing, it is easy to collaborate with anybody and anytime!

Removes the Tether to Specific Devices

Apps and docs are still available even if you move out to a portable device from your computer.
