Vector ITC: the Multicloud model with the “All as a Service” approach will be crucial for the total digitization of companies

One of the biggest challenges for companies today is to manage the abysmal volume of data they are generating, not only in terms of the growing number of files, but in the rapidly growing size of these files. Currently, the solutions are not only based on providing infrastructure, with the Cloud services can offer virtual desktops, development of Blockchain solutions, connection to banking systems through APIs to provide financial services, the management and redirection of traffic on demand, or cyber security services. Furthermore, the current context facing the Covid-19 crisis has driven companies to adopt this model, which is increasingly focused on a ‘Multicloud’ and ‘All as a Service’ approach, with the possibility of accessing any technological service and ensuring maintenance and freeing up time for workers to focus on their specialties, according to Vector ITC, an international technology and digital group.

When a company decides to migrate to the cloud, it moves its IT infrastructure outside the local environment to a data centre maintained by a cloud computing provider. It is the cloud provider that has the responsibility of managing the client’s IT infrastructure, integrating the applications and developing new capacities and functionalities to keep up with market demands. This is basically what cloud computing is all about. Instead of making large investments in databases, software and equipment, companies choose to access computing power over the Internet and pay for what they consume.

In this sense, the importance of Cloud Computing offers many opportunities to optimize operations and have a large number of solutions “as a Service”, which benefits both companies and end users:

  • Pay-per-use. Software piracy has long been a concern for developers, as it leads to the loss of revenue from the unauthorized use of products. With cloud computing, resources are measured by usage, reducing both piracy risks and business costs.
  • Resilience. Cloud computing has dramatically altered the way application resilience works. Where previously, a computer failure or power outage could potentially cause major disruption, now, advances in cloud computing mean that an entire server, network, or data center can quickly recover from such an incident and continue to operate.
  • Elasticity. Elasticity is total, in that it allows easy scaling up and down.
  • Self-Service Provisioning. Offers developers and tech-savvy users control over the configuration of a service or application without the need for a dedicated IT team. This means more automation, speed and predictability, and lower costs.
  • Migration flexibility. While the initial steps of migrating all of a company’s data, applications and infrastructure to the cloud are complex and require an initial time, once the process is complete, the ease with which data can be transferred to and from the cloud will pay off in terms of cost savings and the ability to use new services more easily.
  • Trust and security. An experienced cloud provider continually invests in the latest security technologies, not only to respond to potential threats, but also to help customers meet regulatory requirements.

In this sense, Cloud Computing has gone from being an option that companies were reluctant to adopt, to a model that is omnipresent and necessary for many cutting-edge companies. So much so that organizations around the world will spend around $107 billion on cloud computing infrastructure services by 2019, up 37% from the previous year. In addition, by 2020, around 83% of business workloads will be in the cloud.

“Companies don’t just want to get files in the cloud, they want to share them and access them from any corporate device, have their data fully protected and do it more cost-effectively. That is why they need a cloud with capabilities to access different types of technology that adapt to different types of business, such as multi-site synchronization, global file locking or banking systems using APIs for financial services”, says Rafael Conde del Pozo, Digital & Innovation Director of Vector ITC.

In the near future, the model of Cloud Computing “as a Service” is more consolidated and is evolving at an increasingly rapid pace. Thus, in addition to providing a solid Multicloud strategy, giving the company a way to store, protect, synchronize and collaborate on files worldwide, while allowing to accelerate business transformation and reduce time-to-market, allowing to gain operational efficiency and agility in business development. These types of solutions are much more flexible and customizable, and are completely adaptable to the needs and growth rate that each company may have. With a Multicloud approach you can do all this without losing the ability to negotiate or give up flexibility.
