Is Cloud Computing a Good Fit for my Start-up

To determine if cloud is the right fit for your startup consider service requirements, technology landscape, costs, and migration ease. Answering these questions will help you understand if the cloud is a good fit. In most cases, companies benefit from cloud solutions.

Starting or moving to the cloud makes sense in several situations, including:

When purchasing and/or maintaining on-premises solutions are too costly

Cloud solutions are an affordable alternative to acquiring and managing infrastructure and can help preserve capital.

When your IT staff is smaller

Managing in-house IT requires a lot of expertise on hand. Instead, outsourcing services to a cloud provider can eliminate the need to hire more IT staff.

When you need to spin up an environment quickly

The cloud allows for pay-per-use infrastructure to be quickly spun up or down, making test and development easy

When you need a backup or disaster recovery solution

The cloud is easy to deploy, allowing you to quickly put business-critical solutions in place that can prevent catastrophic data loss and more.
