I recently visited a cloud conference sponsored by Google. Disruptive startups like Freshdesk were also featured. I initially thought that the company is a small call center kind of firm. I found myself wronged when I heard they acquired 1click while they’re still raising funds.
This attendance helped me take first steps in cloud technologies.
A lot of things came up and one line which I still remember is:
People do not buy technology, they buy what it does for them
We were shown how cloud technologies can help reduce on premise cost and resources.
- You can create and destroy instances in minutes
- Take entire control of your IT infrastructure in your own hands
- Pause instances to avoid unbearable bills
- Pay as you go
- Get backup and security of your data and apps
- And many more
