Host Your Enterprise Apps with Peace Of Mind
When it comes to hosting apps, organizations need to be very conscious and diligent. Even if you have a feature-rich application in action, ensuring accessibility, security, and reliability is essential by choosing the perfect hosting solution.
Conventionally, many of the leading enterprises do hosting on their own premises to safeguard security. However, there are plenty of new age organizations that, have gained confidence in hosting data outside their own premises, as there are now many cost- effective and trustworthy solutions available for hosting.
Changing trends in hosting
According to Forrester research, by 2017, there will be an exponential growth to more than 60% of organizations hosting their data externally. By the year 2019, external hosting will become so common that companies will give up hosting on their own premises hosting because it will not be cost effective to run business without incorporating PaaS, IaaS and SaaS models.
Cloud hosting is the primary choice for small to medium enterprises now, and many of the industry giants have also started thinking about third party hosting for their non-critical data and applications.
Key factors to consider
If you are thinking about hosting data externally, there are two key considerations to be made:
- Whether your data will be kept secured: Irrespective of how better your business is performing or if you are a growing player in the market, it is suicidal if your vital data is accessible to the competitors or vulnerable to intrusion. Not only does it put you into a bad spot legally, it is also about tarnishing your organization’s name and trust. Your competitors can use unsecured information to literally demolish your business to its last brick.
- Ensuring you’ll have seamless operation even if server or data is disturbed: Back up of your vital data and recovery of data and servers in case of a disaster is of paramount importance to enterprises. In the new-age global business model, enterprises have to be up 24/7. In case of the event of a server, network, or software going down, companies need to keep the downtime to a minimum, if not preventing at all. Zero downtime is top on the list of competitive advantages for any organization to be guaranteed to the customers.
