While the benefits of cloud seem pretty obvious, many organizations still have their doubts about transitioning to cloud. We’re debunking common cloud myths so you can have a clear idea of the benefits without clouding your judgement.

Security is Compromised in the Cloud

Some argue that local computers, networks and servers are better protected than cloud-based assets. But in reality, this isn’t true. Cloud data centers and networks are targeted because of the large number of records they hold. But cloud service providers can invest far more heavily in security than the average business can.

Cloud Isn’t Environmentally Friendly

There’s no doubt that data centers consume large amounts of energy. But when businesses move from on-site facilities to consolidated cloud data centers, it saves energy and cuts pollution. This is similar to how relying on power companies is better for the environment than everyone running their own generator.

Cloud Computing is Just a Fad

Forrester describes cloud as not just a technology transformation opportunity but a business transformation opportunity. Many businesses leverage cloud computing because of its ability to increase scalability, flexibility and efficiency. And, the McKinsey consulting firm forecasts that cloud technology could have an economic impact of up to $6.2 trillion a year by 2025.
