With recent natural disasters, many major city areas have been submerged. South Asia is known for their location of enterprise call and data centers, and the Houston area has numerous corporation subdivisions. Flooding has caused many people to be without power and vehicles can’t get to the people that need help for at least food. How do these situations affect companies?
More than ever, many corporations and enterprises will have no choice than to use the cloud verses the physical on-prem to store all-of their company data and then some. If a company’s other facility’s power goes out, another location can still access all-of their data to keep them operating. This is most effective way to make sure that customers and partners are still taken cared for during a time of extreme emergency.
Since some hospital named chains use a source such as Oracle, if one facility is without power due to a storm or another disaster, a different location can still access information for patients so they can assist accurately. This is extremely important since peoples’ lives are at stake for medical professionals can easily be sued for malpractice later if a death occurred. Any doctor and/or nurse doesn’t want to provide the wrong care and medication to a patient especially if they have certain ailments already such as diabetes, HIV, cancer, etc.
MANY companies offer a cloud service for internal use as well as for their client base. It all depends on the size of a company and how much data they’ll be needing for storage, which determines price. Cloud storage is going to be on demand more than ever due to many facilities losing data from weather related occurrences rather than an atomic disaster.
Why the cloud now? Do you want to lose all-of your customer information? Do you want to lose all-of the data you’ve worked tiredly to gather? How important is the data that you must have it all? What would happen if all-of that data is lost? Do we really need all-of the data in the long run? Who is the responsible one(s) to store data? How do we get all of it in the cloud? Is cloud realistically safe?
There are so many questions regarding cloud storage since data centers and on-prem aren’t working out for companies’ due to natural disasters causing data and power to be lost indefinitely. It’s important more than ever that companies shift what they do and operate if they expect to survive times of crisis. People’s lives are at stake and it’s important that organizations prepare for when tragedy strikes.
Ironically, there’s a downside as to who will be efficient using cloud storage. Most medium and large government offices don’t have the adequate funds to pay into cloud storage and most of those employees are skeptical since they’re accustomed to old-fashioned on-prem as well as printed physical copies of files. These are the most difficult people to try to convince since they’re not very tech savvy, amongst other matters. Getting the less tech savvy employees of government offices on-board to use cloud verses on-prem, will be a struggle, but they’ll have no choice once they SEE that their paper copies are easily destructible.
Companies that specialize in offering cloud storage will profit from now on if not in the very near future. This means that these companies will profit, due to the services that they already provide. Most of the companies in cloud, haven’t had much success due to the immaturity of a lot of overhead who are in denial to change. They will prevail! They will succeed! When many companies finally realize that they’re business is falling apart, they’ll invest into cloud, like right now or at the latest, next week.
