Why the Cloud?
A few years ago, web applications were deployed on physical servers. Today, Cloud computing is no longer just a buzz word but a true technology that meets a market need and provides access to a more scalable, resilient and available service than traditional hosting. There are currently two major Cloud models, one of which is the public Cloud and the three best-known ones being AWS (Amazon Web Services), GCP (Google Cloud Platform) and Microsoft Azure. However, deploying and managing applications in the Cloud can be complicated for a company that does not have the necessary technical skills. Cloud services are certainly efficient and effective, they allow an increase in productivity and often reduce costs, but they are also complex to understand and use. In order to make the most of Cloud computing, it is often necessary to beef up the technical skills of the teams.
3 reasons to move into the public Cloud
Cloud services allow great flexibility according to needs and the visitation of a web platform. The Cloud allows automatic adaptation of the number of servers needed. For example, during traffic peaks (for example, during a sale), the number of servers will increase and, in the opposite case, automatically decrease through auto scaling. These services are automatic and on demand. The client does not need to contact the host several days in advance to predict these changes.
Automatic software updates
The Cloud vendors take care of software updates, including security patches. This allows the client company to focus on its core business.
Cloud computing helps control the cost of hosting. Indeed, by deploying and managing its application on the Cloud, the customer only pays for its actual consumption.
The public Cloud offers several undeniable advantages. It is quick to implement if you have a good tool or internal skills, adapting to changing customer needs. This simplifies the day-to-day tasks of users who no longer have to anticipate the server additions with their host and allows them to pay only for use.
The advantages and benefits of SaaS solutions
SaaS (Software as a Service) is an increasingly popular software model in the Cloud computing industry. For this type of service, the applications are hosted directly, managed on the internet and therefore easily accessible from any browser.
SaaS also helps reduce costs. All installation, maintenance and upgrade costs are included in a short or medium term subscription. This package is adjustable according to needs and allows the customer to adapt to the evolution of their company.
Artifakt.io is a SaaS solution to create, deploy and manage the most popular web applications (Magento, Akeneo, WordPress, Prestashop, Symfony, Marello, Drupal, OroCommerce, etc) in the public Cloud (Amazon Web Services today, Google and Azure tomorrow).
