Lately, businesses have woken up to the fact that they should adopt a new technology as soon as possible. Perhaps they have realized that this approach would give them an edge over the others. In such a scenario, it should come as no surprise that business have to come to terms with cloud computing without further ado. However, there are some organizations that are yet to give in. They are still holding on to their apprehensions about cloud computing services. The following myths have certainly contributed to these apprehensions:

These services cost a fortune – It is quite normal for the organizations to believe that any new technology is bound to burn a hole in their pockets. Therefore, such myths have also been doing the rounds about cloud computing. However, businesses have failed to realize that these services are based on the ‘pay as you go’ model, and are very much affordable. The expenses that need to incurred are in a way directly proportional to the traffic inflow.

‘Cloud’ can replace the real time environment – The organizations seem to have qualms in opting for cloud computing services as they have too many expectations from these services. Many of these expectations are not even realistic. These organizations fail to understand that there are a plenty of applications that cannot be replicated in the cloud environment. It is obvious that these expectations cannot be met. In such a scenario, the organizations tend to distrust the service providers.

These services are not feasible – Many businesses have already switched to cloud computing, and are doing quite good. These services are not only technically feasible but can also be afforded by even a mid-sized business. Therefore, these are very much feasible.Similar myths about managed hosting services have also been doing the rounds. Such myths have certainly affected the popularity of these services. Nevertheless, some of the common myths are as follows:These services reduce the efficiency – Contrary to popular belief, these services are known to enhance the efficiency of an organization. There is no need for an organization to look after its servers, once it has decided to delegate the task to another firm. In such a scenario, the efficiency of the employees is bound to surge upwards.These make the websites vulnerable – Managed hosting services safeguard your websites against all possible threats. As a matter of fact, the companies that offer such services monitor your websites round the clock, and ensure that these do not fall prey to viruses.These are not cost effective – You can easily find some service providers that offer such services at an economically viable price. Furthermore, your expenses would certainly come down if you delegate some of the important tasks (read: monitoring and hosting, among others) to another firm.
