Public Cloud: Pros

Public cloud is extremely easy to purchase and deploy – a top reason why it’s desirable, according to Park.

“The time-to-market and time-to-deploy are unbeatable, since the likes of Amazon, Microsoft and Google have petabytes available on demand with a level of service, security and governance that would take months or even years to build out,” Park said. “This also makes public cloud especially valuable for fast-growing organizations for multiple reasons.”

Amalgam Insights recommends any company growing more than 30 percent year-over-year to remain in the cloud, as the time cost of setting up dedicated infrastructure is not worth the potential operational cost efficiencies of moving to an on-premises private cloud.

Public cloud also is a great option for dynamic workload and storage needs, Park said.

“If an organization cannot predict workloads and processing to within 10 percent of utilization on a regular basis, it should work with a dynamic and elastic cloud option to ensure that the technology keeps up with the needs of the business,” Park said. “Also, public cloud is valuable because it is constantly updated, which makes the services and capabilities of public cloud constantly up to date from a tech, accessibility and governance perspective. This also allows public cloud users to potentially integrate with platform-as-a-service capabilities such as database, machine learning and other microservices that are native to the public cloud more easily.”
