Distributed Cloud

    Seamlessly connect edge locations with the core

    Distributed Cloud services are the next generation of cloud computing. Distributed Cloud computing is the first cloud model that incorporates physical location of cloud-delivered services as part of its definition. Distributed Cloud has three origins: Public Cloud, Hybrid Cloud and Edge Computing. Public Cloud providers have supported multiple zones and regions for many years. With packaged hybrid offerings, Public Cloud services can now be distributed to different physical locations, for example, the Edge.

    Why you need a Distributed Cloud strategy

    Gartner suggest that organisations without a Distributed Cloud services strategy will likely fall behind. In the post COVID-19 world we’re operating in the modern workplace. This is where agility, flexibility and all the benefits of a Distributed Cloud strategy are more important than ever before. The opportunity is there for organisations to accelerate their cloud services journey faster than their competitors.

  • Advantages of Distributed Cloud Computing

    • Cost efficiency:
    • Among the most important benefits of Cloud computing is cost saving. You are not only saving on infrastructure but teams to supervise and maintain the hardware. The saved and increased bandwidth of your employees can be utilized elsewhere.

    • Auto-updates:
    • You are updated about the latest developments and changes including the auto-update of the software. Software integration also takes place automatically, so you don’t have to worry about customizing and integrating applications. Besides, your remote employees can access cloud services anytime, anywhere, enhancing their productivity.

    • Quick deployment:
    • You can deploy the service in a matter of a few clicks with cloud computing. The swiftness of service allows for quicker deployment of resources needed for the entire process.

    • Unlimited storage:
    • With the cloud, there is always the advantage of unlimited storage so that is one less stress for you. What’s more? It’s scalable. You can expand your space limit anytime by paying a minimal monthly fee.

    • Data back-up:
    • Another advantage of cloud computing is that you can recover data quickly and easily which is pretty time-intensive in an on-premises setup. 

  • Disadvantages of Distributed Cloud Computing

    • Downtime:
    • This is experienced by many cloud computing customers. You may have to face power outages, low internet, service maintenance, and more such technical issues.

    • Performance fluctuation:
    • This is another hassle of working in a cloud environment. Since multiple applications are running simultaneously on a single server chance are there might be performance issues because of the shared resources.

    • Low Bandwidth:
    • As it has been seen, cloud service providers limit the bandwidth usage of their clients. If your company has run out of its quota, you will have to pay an additional charge which could be expensive.

    • Lack of support:
    • Many times, clients are disappointed because of a lack of timely technical support from the cloud providers. This is a hassle especially for teams with no or little technical know-how.

    • Security risks:
    • There is always a security threat while using cloud solutions. Sharing your sensitive organizational data with a third-party cloud service provider comes with its set of challenges.
