The Need for Cloud Standardization
Cloud computing will prove to be an imperative infrastructure tool for business. Almost all the sectors like retail, manufacturing, railways, banking, healthcare and education will now or later move to the cloud. It is surely predictable that any of the cloud deployment models such as IaaS, PaaS and SaaS will be put to work by an organization. A crystal clear policy is the need of the industry which has an ever-increasing demand. Adoptions of cloud services save IT infrastructure costs, optimize resources with the perceived advantages of elasticity and scalability.
