the site describes the features and usages of cloud to the people who dont have awareness about cloud

The cloud features you Might not know

If you are a common man, When you hear the word cloud, you might think about hosting. Of Course, cloud gives you hosting, but it is not the entire job of the cloud. A lot of people use the cloud for 100% uptime.

Cloud is good for hosting, but it has more than that for you. Cloud’s job is 90% entirely differs from what you think as it functions. Using cloud you can do the following things

  • Create an infrastructure
  • Deploy your virtual machine
  • Backup your data
  • Load balancing
  • Hosting (well-known feature as Amazon )
  • Data protection
  • Disaster recovery
  • Virtual network
  • Development platform

And more features.

Cloud is a technology which helps you to try out your large computation tasks which require substantial computing resources so that you could not carry out in the past.

For a lot of companies, big computation resources rarely need so they cannot establish extensive resources for such short time requirements. So, here, What else could be the solution for them?

The solution would be the cloud, and it can be deployed temporarily as pay per use model. In this method, you are just hiring a computing resource which is scalable and extended based on requirement. Your cloud solution provider will do all the necessary things. 

See, how easy is your job now. No need of buying hardware, software, configuring of it, maintaining it even when it is not required. It stops you from spending too much money for one day purpose. This prevents you from letting your purchased resource idle. The chance of keeping your valuable resources as an object in the exhibition is very small.

Now the method is to hire when you need and let go when the job was done. It sounds sweet, is not it?

The big job like business intelligence and big data analysis requires a lot of computing resources. Cloud is the best solution for them. Microsoft Azure cloud has the large number of supporting tool for business intelligence and big data analysis.

If you are a small company and require high-configured systems for development, you can create a virtual machine in the cloud with your desired configuration. You can create multiple virtual machines and combine them into a virtual network.

You only need the high-speed internet connection, your end system configuration can be whatever to access remote system on the cloud. It only does screen casting job and sends all your inputs to the remote PC.

The people who need a lot of systems configured like above said can use the virtual network as their option. Also a lot of data has to be kept securely for later access. To do this, you can use cloud as your data backup service option for storing critical data.

Also, the data which does not require frequent access also can be stored on the cloud. Cloud is the highest option for anyone to store their data for the recovery purpose. You don’t need to be worried about the natural disaster or any man caused disaster.

Benefits of using ERP on cloud

Unlike traditional usage of software, ERP benefits more than a software and assist you like a personal assistant by organising all data into one dashboard. The result is getting key insights for your business is a lot easier than before and that too with higher accuracy.

You might have a question in your mind that why should you move to ERP? And what it can offer for your business? Here is the list of benefits you can do it from the ERP.

  1. Centralised data

This is the important and major benefit of ERP system is centralised data. Here you will access all your data from one system in an organised way. Having multiple system and storage without synchronisation will trouble you. But here at the ERP system, the data has been stored at a centralised system which makes the one-time job easier.

Storing data at the different system and trying to organise it will lead into higher time consumption and error while doing the job. But centralised ERP won’t let you make that mistake and reduce the manual workload.

Especially when you have your ERP on the cloud, all your work will be easily done and accurate. It will minimise the cost of establishing a big on-premise ERP system. It will lead to cost savings in both hardware and software. While the on-premise system can be the one-time investment but the cloud will be work like pay on the go.

To deploy ERP on cloud, you have to pay like monthly cost, and the charge will be only for usage. All you need is the system with internet access to use your cloud ERP. Some ERP users won’t agree to host their data on third party vendors system. But the cloud is the secure one. cloud backup is the best way of data protection and that automatically comes with ERP on cloud

Getting the service from trustable ERP cloud vendors is important for you. All vendors are trustable, but in security wise, you have to choose the best one.

  1. Customised ERP and Good support

The Enterprise resource planning is a complex task as it has critical data to be handled carefully. Also, the software which does the process also has multiple options to organise and analyse the data. When you establish an ERP system for your business for the first time, you might have a lot of doubts.

To high-speed your doubts, you may contact your service providers, and sometimes people do not want to call their support team to solve their doubts. To solve your problems, you have an option of using online forums where the ERP experts hang out.

Once you ask the doubt, a plenty of experts will tend to solve your problems. You will end up in gaining answers and clarifications for your doubt. Also, your service providers can help you in this issue.

ERP has a standard, but the usage and customisation for the different fields vary. Based on the field, a lot of ERP vendors are providing good support to various industries. It will help you in finding a suitable vendor for your business.

A focused and customised ERP means, you can easily understand and use it.

  1. Cloud gives you Higher ERP performance

If you have your own ERP system, you might have installed it with an initial measurement of how much your business require it. The chance for not scaling it properly would be high. So you might end up in having over configured or less configured ERP system.

Both over configuration and insufficient configuration will let you spend more money on the ERP. When your business grows, you can use the full power of your established system, but until you use it entirely, it will cost you like extra spendings for those interval.

While for the less configuration, you will end-up in trouble. It will take both time and money to fix it. Even though you fix it, you have to test it for while whether it is fit or not.

If you have your ERP at the cloud, you can use it as pay as you go, model. The result, you can increase your configuration whenever you want. Also, you can easily scale your business and based on that the configuration can be hiked on the go.

There will be only a minimal time delay which won’t make any particular loss. The only requirement you need to have at your industry is systems and good internet connection. A lot of vendors has provided Those high-speed internet connections. Hence it won’t b the problem for anyone to afford it.

It will reduce your cost and makes your deployment process faster. In a simple word, we can say, the cloud deployment of the ERP is a lot easier and faster than establishing on-premise ERP. So, if you are small or medium level company, this will be your best choice at your initial days.

But if you are a big enterprise and have your on-premise server for ERP, you can use cloud in a hybrid model. This is an easier way of saving cost and secure your data. In the hybrid cloud model, you will connect your on-premise server through the express circuit to cloud.

You can do some function at your on-premise server and some function at your cloud infrastructure. Having your data in the cloud is a lot safer than having it on your own server.

Because, the cloud ERP vendor has the best and updated security professionals(since they are a good service provider, they should have a good security system) to protect the data. When you have your system for data storage, you may be lack in security system establishment.

However, your cloud vendor will take care of this issue which means you are getting professional higher end service. In a recent survey, over 57% of ERP users stated that they have moved to cloud for faster and secure environment.

  1. Accuracy of the data is high

The main purpose of ERP system is to organise data and look out for the key insights like last year report and current year status etc. When you don’t have proper ERP system, and you have to calculate everything manually, it will definitely lead to the processing of less accurate data.

Data and key insights are important as it has the power to bring any organisation to the next level. But when you make a mistake with calculating your data, you will be doing a great mistake and end up in losing great insights.

The Centralised ERP system has the solution for it. It reduces the repeated process and makes the work faster. It leads to 100% accuracy. The retail business requires a good forecast to serve their customer without interruption.

Having a well established ERP system gives you a good prediction so that you can prepare yourself in advance to meet your customer needs. All your data will be shown on one dashboard, and you can filter it out to find many key insights.

You can focus on multiple areas to improve your business based on the accurate data. Manipulating your data with ERP system is easy and using it with cloud makes your process faster.

  1. Mobile optimisation accessibility of ERP system.

The Disaster Recovery on cloud


Disaster recovery is the process of retrieving your previous status before the occurrence of disaster through the various process. In the computing world, the data is the primary objective to recover in case of disaster.

Big companies have been storing their data backup in various ways; some will have their own backup at the same place to instantly recover the data. But sometimes, they store it in a remote location. If the data is small, you can use less amount of storage devices. It would fit in your budget. But what if you have a large number of data and it all needs to be taken as a backup.

You will require a data centre to manage such those large amount of data. You can have one data centre, that will also cost a lot for a company. No one wants to spend money on such things when they only need to in case of any loss. Probably no loss, the amount that spent on the data centre to establish, store and maintain will be considered as the loss for companies which have strict budgets. You should have a proper disaster recovery plan

We can divide the data into two categories

  • Not required much – ( archive)
  • Often required        

The often necessary data can be stored in a nearby area, and the not much-required data can be stored nearby area location to access. The archive type can be stored in secondary devices and kept somewhere.

So, here in case any disaster in the location of secondary storage devices you will lose your archived data, even when you do not need it now, it may be required on some other days. Losing the critical data also will ruin your business.

For small companies, they should need a budget to maintain such backups. To solve all the issues we can go for the cloud which gives you unlimited storage access, and you will pay for what you use. So the companies which can’t have their secondary data centre’s can choose backup to cloud option.

You do not need to worry about fire, cyclone, rain or any natural disaster unless it destroys the entire world( There will be no need of data). The worry is theirs (cloud service provider), all you have to do is just keep your data on the cloud.

Cloud almost gives 100% uptime because it is much reliable than any other form of computing. You can see 100% network uptime guarantee. Cloud service providers have multiple data centres.

Your data will be backed up in multiple locations, so in case of any natural disasters at their data centres, there won’t be any problem in serving you without interruption. All are their worries. Don’t worry about that part “ the giant companies has chosen their locations based on their metrics. Those locations are not frequently affected by the disaster. They will take care everything for you.

The advanced technology has been growing, and a lot of new implementations are coming every day. To update yourself fast, you have to use the cloud. The number one cloud platform is Microsoft Azure. They are technology builders and also leading in this industry. They have many cloud data centres to access. You can choose the one very near to your location.
