Having cloud-enabled managed hosting will eliminate many of the overheads associated with traditional IT infra, Telstra Global said.
Speaking at a conference,Nathan Bell, director of marketing, products and pricing at Telstra Global, also said cloud is a crucial investment for any enterprise which hopes to succeed in the near future.
According to Bell, an evolved cloud platform model is the answer for ensuring sustainable growth and providing enterprises with a competitive edge.
“Traditionally many enterprises have used in-house infrastructure or collocated with an external data centre provider, yet an evolution is on the horizon with providers now developing and offering cloud-enabled managed hosting,” Bell said. “If companies do not embrace this new development, they are in jeopardy of falling behind their competitors.”
Bell also addressed the importance of emerging markets for enterprises in creating potential business opportunities, commenting that “70% of world growth over the next few years will come from emerging markets, with China and India accounting for 40% of that growth.”
Bell added that in order to access the emerging markets in these regions, having a cloud provider is the only solution. He said cloud computing has the ability to save costs, increase business agility and deliver IT in an on-demand manner. It can also overcome the barrier of needing a secure network in regions with expensive terrestrial infrastructure.
