Hartford Group International recognizes the potential of cloud computing and realizes the possibilities that it can still offer. The issues on security and maintenance, rather than being flaws, can be viewed as opportunities for cloud computing to be improved.
The pace at which how information technology grows can be very intimidating and whatever knowledge one has about it today can be obsolete tomorrow. However, no matter how fast the IT industry grows, it seems to be leading the world to a single direction, the direction of virtual reality.
Imagine having a business with your co-owners residing in different parts of the country. Your employees do not have to report to you physically everyday and you do not need to be in an office building at 9 AM. Still, your business grows successfully and communication is as effective as if you conduct a board meeting every week. This might unimaginable before, but not in the 20th century.
Thanks to an invisible infrastructure that can store, transmit and manage information and services much better than a filing cabinet will do.The earliest program that can be associated to this new trend in technology was introduced in 1982 by IBM PC in the form of an Ethernet adapter card. Fifteen years later, the term “cloud computing” was coined by Ramnath Chellappa, a professor in the University of Texas. Today, cloud computing may still sound too technical for an average person but its impact in the world’s technology is undeniable. The most common example of which is the email, a term which more people are familiar of.
Cloud computing may come in different forms depending on the kind of services offered. It can be in a form of software-as-a-service, meaning that a multitenant architecture delivers an application to a number of customers using a browser. It can also be a utility computing like Amazon.com which offers storage servers that can be accessed on demand.
Cloud computing services could also be web services that allow developers of an application to deliver, through the Internet, a certain function needed at the moment instead of making the consumers buy the whole application, an example of which is Google Maps.
It can also be in a platform-as-a-service form which means that a person can create his own application that runs in the cloud provider’s infrastructure. The provider’s server can then deliver this application to the end-users. These are just examples of what cloud computing can do but the broadness that cloud computing covers still has not found their boundaries.
Technically, cloud computing encompasses any extension of IT’s capabilities whether a subscription-based or pay-per-use service that can be accessed in real time, provided that there is a connection to the Internet. In the present day, the field that has become most dependent to cloud computing is the business sector. The business side of the industry is where Hartford Group International invests the most and whatever technology that affects this sector serves to be an asset for Hartford.
Traditional businesses create applications and software programs specifically designed for their companies. This means that a whole staff of IT experts must be hired to create, run and maintain the applications that will run the company. This can be very expensive, complex, slow and impractical. Cloud computing address all those concerns. Instead of making your company’s computers do all the work, you pay for a network of computers which is the cloud provider will manage all your information for you. These data can be made available to anyone whom you will share them with. The best thing is you can access them anywhere you are, anytime you need to.
Hartford Group International recognizes the potential of cloud computing and realizes the possibilities that it can still offer. The issues on security and maintenance, rather than being flaws, can be viewed as opportunities for cloud to be improved.
In the coming years, Gartner Inc. predicts that majority of investments on IT will be spent on cloud computing, in the development of computing platforms and discovering new cloud applications. Security services of cloud computing will have its worth from $2.1 billion this 2013 to $3.1 billion in 2015. This predicted growth in market worth, together with the technical advancements that IT industry has for cloud computing, indicates that it is going to be a major a technological trend for the next years, making it a very good investment for Hartford Group International.
