Why are businesses migrating to the cloud?

From On-Premise to Cloud: The Game-Changing Advantages for Businesses

Imagine, if you will, that the Flintstones never used wheels for transport. They would have run everywhere they needed to go. Where is the good in that? But with the wheel came convenience and speed – a better way. Similarly, we see the business world making its shift to the cloud simply because it is faster, cheaper, safer, and better. The potential of cloud technology is becoming evident as it continues to expand and cloud adoption by companies has increased to 90%. 

What specifically is driving this massive change? Let us take a look at how cloud can benefit your business and why you should be migrating to the cloud as well.  

Benefits of migrating to the cloud

Cost Savings

Which business doesn’t want that? Previously, you would have to pay for the on-site servers but with various cloud providers like AWS, Azure, and, GCP taking over, you now just have to pay them to handle these data centers for you. Did you know that most customers save 30% to 50% by switching to the cloud? That could be you! 

But one must be warned, misusing your cloud resources can lead to higher costs. That is why It is very important to equip your employees with knowledge of the cloud and involve cloud experts. We at 1CloudHub are well-experienced in cloud migration and have helped many customers successfully migrate their workloads. 


Every business faces changes in demand which means that you will require the ability to increase or decrease your IT resources as per requirement. This seamless scalability is offered to you by cloud providers through pay-as-you-go models enabling you to have the flexibility to scale up or down as your business demands.


Along the same lines as changes in demand, businesses also face changes in IT environments and other challenges. Having cloud on your side enables you to move nimbly and easily tackle these obstacles. Cloud agility gives you the ability to develop, test, and launch applications in a cloud-based environment accelerating your progress. When you work on cloud, you will have shorter iterations to maintain profitability.  

Cloud agility provides customers and users with more options and faster access to computing resources, both of which are critical success factors in today’s competitive marketplace. Define your ability to respond to changing needs by taking your first step in the right direction – migrating to the cloud. 

Fault Tolerance

One of the top reasons that draws companies to the cloud is the fact that the show goes on without interruption even if one or more components of the system fail. By system, we mean computers, networks, or even the cloud cluster.  

In the event of a disaster or outage in your primary data center, you must have an alternate place where you can store your data – a disaster recovery plan per se. Cloud providers offer a huge amount of system capacity made available at just the click of a button. The best part is that you can rent it only when you need it! Pay for what you use when the need arises, and once the crisis is over, you can just shut down backup and stop paying. It’s as easy as that. 


As your company grows and expands beyond its borders, it makes sense to have resources and services close to the new markets you want to enter, whether for regulatory or performance reasons. Cloud providers already have data centers and resources available in various geographical locations around the world that you can access almost instantly. This is a money-saving move because you will not have to build or maintain your own data centres.

And there you have it – 5 great reasons why businesses are migrating to the cloud. If you would like to hop on this train, do reach out to us. Our experts will help assess your workload and make your transition to the cloud as smooth as possible.
