What are the benefits of using cloud computing?

I regularly receive messages via linkedin, and other networks, from people who want to know how they can also study, learn and pass Microsoft Azure exams.

With that, I thought a lot about how I could help not only those people who send me messages, but also other people who still don't know me / don't know me. So, I decided to make a short “series” of articles addressing the main points that fall in the AZ900 test, and exemplifying them for a better understanding of the subject.

And here it is, the first “episode of this series”. I hope you enjoy it, and I can help you.

I only ask that if possible, like, comment and share so that this content can reach more people and can help them.

Understand cloud concepts

You may want to just store data or migrate your entire environment. There are several possibilities for using the cloud.

With it you can achieve speed and a flexible environment. Large companies can choose to move part of their on-premises environment to the cloud, as small or new companies can start their business directly in the cloud.

The cloud is economical:

You do not need to spend large amounts of money to start a project, or start building your infrastructure. Unlike a local environment, where if there is a surplus of unused technology that must still be paid, in the cloud you pay only for what you use.

Simply put: used less pay less; used more, paid more.

With the cloud you can scale and have an elastic environment:

With your cloud environment, you can easily increase or decrease configurations at any time, in order to obtain the best performance to meet the demand of certain periods.

Example: You have an environment where you meet all the demand for most of the month. But, at the time of payroll closing, demand increases, requiring a larger configuration to meet.

With the cloud, you can scale your environment this closing week, meeting the need. And when there is a drop in demand, you can reduce your environment, thus, using only what you really need, with no leftovers.

Do you want to have a safe, up-to-date environment that is reliable? Then the cloud is for you!

Hardware and patch update work, and some managements are no longer your job. With the cloud, this becomes the responsibility of your providers.

In addition, you are assured of confidence in the availability of your data, which is stored there. With backup services, disaster recovery and data replication, which are included in cloud services, you will always have your data available for access. Also, as a way to guarantee this availability, your data can be replicated globally. For example, you can have copies of your data stored within the same region / country, just as you can have those copies stored in another region / country. This ensures that your data will always be available.

Security is one of the most important points today, when it comes to data. For this, the cloud provides several data protection technologies in order to meet all types of protection requirements, and assist in the security of your information. Of course, for that you must use them.

At the end of my articles, I always recommend validating all knowledge acquired here, through official Microsoft documentation. For this, access here.
