The Importance of the Data Center to Houston Businesses
A data center or server farm has been called the brain of the business. It stores, processes, and distributes the data belonging to the business. An on-premise data center, however, is not only expensive to maintain, but can also be a serious security vulnerability. It’s exposed to fires, floods, and other environmental, external, and internal threats.
Today, small to mid-sized businesses are the prime targets of cyber attacks. Professional data center and cloud management services can be critical in preventing a catastrophic revenue loss or business shutdown. Hybrid data centers can be vital in protecting your data.
Data Centers in the Cloud
Hybrid data centers incorporate a physical data center, as well as a public or private cloud service. The projections and statistics are astonishing.
- Cisco expects that both data center traffic and cloud traffic within data centers will triple or quadruple by 2019. Cloud applications and services should make up 83% of global data center services worldwide.
- Cloud models have been adopted by 50% of organizations
- Currently, about 85% of enterprises make use of some cloud services, with most choosing a hybrid solution. Cloud-based software applications or SaaS (software as a service) constituted the first wave. It’s convenient and economical to have employees use licensed software hosted in the cloud.
- IaaS (infrastructure as a service) and PaaS (platform as a service) are becoming increasingly commonplace. Businesses mix-and-match services to meet their needs.
