Top 4 Ways Startups Can Leverage Cloud Computing

2017 saw the addition of over 1000 new start-ups, strengthening India’s position as the 3rd largest start-up ecosystem across the world. This takes the total number of technology start-ups in India to 5,200 (Nasscom start-up report 2017).

 

With this rapid increase of enterprises in the technology sector, competition also has become greater. Every other company is striving to distinguish themselves from others by increasing productivity or cutting down cost or an unconventional combination of both.

 

One way for tech companies to get a leg on the rest of the industry is by migrating to cloud. While cloud computing is immensely useful for all the companies, they are remarkably useful for start-ups, which need all the help they can get to hit the ground running.

 

Let’s look at 4 ways in which start-ups can leverage cloud computing:

 

  1. Save Money

 

4 out of 7 companies are now moving their company to cloud and it is no secret, cloud has become a vital component of company’s tech budget. You can do more with less funding on the cloud. The cloud offers an easy way to store your company’s data without the need to pay for expensive licenses or difficult software training courses. You can take the money you would spend on software and allocate it elsewhere.

 

  1. Going Mobile

 

The amount of work put into getting a start-up off the ground requires serious effort and working a lot of hours, which means day in and day out you will be checking work emails and accessing business documents, even at nights and on the weekends too. For an easy and convenient way to access your work using a mobile device like a tablet or smartphone, the cloud will surely be a boon to your business.

 

  1. Pay As You Go model

 

Start-ups can’t afford wastage. One of the major advantages of pay-as-you-go model is that there are no wasted resources. Rather than allotting for a certain amount of resource that may or may not be used, you pay only for the service procured.

 

  1. Growth promotion

 

Starting a new business is always a challenge, but hiring people in the early stages of a new company is a bigger challenge. The phase where you need to widen your focus to add more responsibilities, and also find the funding to pay new employees. This is where start-ups can leverage cloud adoption because the cloud requires less money and manpower than traditional software solutions, you’ll free up additional resources that you can put toward hiring.

 

 

With cloud computing, you will not only save resources but will also be able to invest your valuable time in the growth of your business.

Benefit of using Azure Cosmos DB for MongoDB applications

Benefit of using Azure Cosmos DB for MongoDB applications

Azure Cosmos DB is Microsoft’s globally distributed, multi-model database service for mission-critical applications. Azure Cosmos DB provides turn-key global distribution, elastic scaling of throughput and storage worldwide, single-digit millisecond latencies at the 99th percentile, and guaranteed high availability, all backed by industry-leading SLAs. Azure Cosmos DB automatically indexes data without requiring you to deal with schema and index management. It is multi-model and supports document, key-value, graph, and columnar data models.

 

Azure Cosmos DB databases can be used as the data store for apps written for MongoDB. This functionality means that by using existing drivers, your application written for MongoDB can now communicate with Azure Cosmos DB and use Azure Cosmos DB databases instead of MongoDB databases.

 

Using this functionality, you can easily build and run MongoDB globally distributed database applications in the Azure cloud with Azure Cosmos DB and it’s comprehensive industry-leading SLAs while continuing to use familiar skills and tools for MongoDB.

You can develop applications using MongoDB and deploy them to production using the fully managed, and globally distributed Azure Cosmos DB service.

 

Benefits of using Azure Cosmos DB for MongoDB applications

 

Elastically scalable throughput and storage

Easily scale up and down your MongoDB database as per your application need. For low predictable latencies, data is stored in solid-state disks (SSD). Azure Cosmos DB supports MongoDB collections that can scale to virtually unlimited storage sizes and provisioned throughput. You can elastically scale Azure Cosmos DB with predictable performance seamlessly as your application grows.

 

Multi-region replication

Azure Cosmos DB transparently replicates your data to all regions you’ve associated with your MongoDB account, enabling you to develop applications that require global access to data while providing tradeoffs between consistency, availability, and performance, all with corresponding guarantees.

 

No server management

Azure Cosmos DB is a fully managed service, which means you do not have to manage any infrastructure or Virtual Machines yourself.

 

Automatic indexing

By default, Azure Cosmos DB automatically indexes all the properties within documents in your MongoDB database and does not expect or require any schema or creation of secondary indices

 

Enterprise grade

Azure Cosmos DB supports multiple local replicas to deliver 99.99% availability and data protection in the face of local and regional failures.

Data center Transformation; first step to Digital Transformation

Digital Transformation has been the buzz word for quite a period of time now. It involves not just the introduction of new technologies, but modification of existing business processes and models to fully leverage those technologies. This empowers the company to gain unparalleled levels of productivity, improves the customer experience, drive innovation and competitive upper hand.

On a theoretical level, it sounds great but when put into practice it’s extremely challenging. It is difficult to transform your organization when you are struggling to maintain and manage legacy IT architecture

Most organizations still allocate upwards of 80% of the IT budget towards “Keeping the lights ON”

 

 

For many organizations, the challenges begin with the data center infrastructure. High latency network lacks the capacity and scalability to support rapidly changing technology demands. Power and cooling costs continue to increase, further straining IT budgets. Digital transformation must start with data center transformation to ensure the right foundation is in place.
