What is a decentralized cloud service?
The cloud connects local servers to store and manage data, or run applications. Through the internet, users can get the data they need anytime and anywhere without a computer and USB. The decentralized cloud refers to the cloud provider change from the physical data center of large enterprises to the public cloud service provided by individuals. The cloud provider is just responsible for all cloud construction, transmission, operation, management, and updates.
Advantage of using decentralized cloud service
The decentralized cloud technology uses the company’s own IT systems and equipment. Using the original system can avoid the existing IT risks after the system is on the cloud. The system is managed by professional cloud personnel, problems can be instantaneously solved and thus reduce the chance of error. They do not need to invest additional funds in IT and hire additional management personnel, a lot of management and operating costs can be saved, which is very beneficial for small and medium-sized enterprises.
This technology improves the autonomy of IT architecture and solves the problem of corporate data being restricted by laws and regulations. Through a distributed cloud architecture, public cloud services can be applied to enterprises, the data becomes easier to export. The enterprises will no longer be bound to a single public cloud service provider when using the decentralized cloud service. They can choose their own physical IT location, their data is no longer in the hands of a few suppliers, it provides more opportunities to the enterprise.
Decentralized cloud service may become the main force in 2021?
Based on the current social technological development and trends, traditional IT systems are not conducive to digital transformation, and society generally tends to go to the cloud, so going to the cloud is the first step in the transformation.
However, the public cloud has certain information security concerns, because its services are subject to the supplier. If it is not restricted by the supplier, it also has a certain maintenance efficiency and information security protection. Only the decentralized cloud mentioned above can meet the requirements.
According to Gartner’s CIO Topics Survey Report, decentralized cloud investment jumped to the fourth in 2021. This shows that enterprises need and value the autonomy of IT architecture. Therefore, based on the benefits and potential of decentralized cloud services are extremely possible to become the main force of the future digital.
