With the burgeoning size of data at unprecedented levels, it has become pertinent to make a switch to a more robust and reliable storage platform that has huge storage capacity and processing power.

Most of the organizations have already made a plunge and have joined the bandwagon of cloud server hosting, which is the next gen future technology. On premise local servers have been replaced by cloud servers.

According to Gartner, a leading research firm, storing information and data in the cloud is a feasible alternative in comparison to on premise, traditional storage solutions.

Cloud infrastructure offers the feature of dynamic scaling that facilitates elastic storage capacity on demand. It provides a variable cost structure along with the utility billing model that makes it a preferred choice in comparison to traditional storage services. With cloud storage there is no longer any need to purchase huge space to hoard data. In fact, businesses pay only for the storage space utilized by them; it helps to reap benefits from the expected price decline in the storage capacity prices over a period of time.

Cloud server is gaining momentum, as this newly coined strategy assures of the following benefits:

-Pay as you go model
-Reduction in capital expenditure
-Decline in hardware acquisition

Cloud facilitates best in class storage infrastructure, wherein the users can modify the storage capacity as per the business needs. Unlike conventional storage devices, with cloud server the stored data can be easily accessed from anywhere and anytime with an Internet connection.

Cloud servers thus offer large storage space with highly redundant resources that can be made available as per the fluctuating business needs. By leveraging cloud storage solutions businesses can expect increased ROI, expanded customer base and that too at reduced TCO.
