Common myths about Cloud technology




According to the latest forecast from Gartner, end-user spending on public cloud services is expected to grow 20.4% in 2022 and reach $494.7 billion, up from $410.9 billion in 2021. However, despite being on the rise, cloud computing is still questioned. Does everyone need to go to the cloud? Is it a necessity for modern business or just hype? Moreover, cloud security myths continue to plague cloud computing making it more difficult to decide whether the cloud is beneficial for organizations or not

Here are the top myths about cloud computing and what you need to know about each.

Myth#1: Cloud is not secure

One of the most common misconceptions about the cloud is that it is somehow less secure than traditional on-premises data centers. However, the opposite is often true. Cloud providers invest heavily in security and have teams of experts dedicated to keeping data safe.

Cloud security is a shared responsibility between the CSP and its customers. Unfortunately, most data breaches are the fault of business clients. Gartner predicts that, through 2025, 99% of cloud security failures will be the customer’s fault.

Myth#2: The cloud is too expensive for your business

This cloud computing myth is not necessarily true. While the upfront costs of a cloud solution may be higher, the long-term costs can often be lower, thanks to the pay-as-you-go pricing model and the ability to scale up or down as needed.

Myth #3: The cloud is not dependable

Another common cloud misconception is that it is somehow less dependable than on-premises solutions. However, the opposite is often true. Cloud providers invest heavily in uptime and have teams of experts dedicated to keeping data safe.

What companies are most concerned about is surrendering control over their data that is stored in the cloud. This may be understandable but not for CSPs with strong data protection and privacy guarantees. CSPs also provide clients with ways to see their activities and actions for visibility and transparency. You have admin access to view and control your data.

In the end, you are in control of and are accountable for the security and use of your corporate data, regardless of where it resides.

Myth #4: The cloud is not private

The reality is the opposite of these cloud myths. The cloud is one of the most secure places to store your data. With proper security measures in place, your data is safe from prying eyes.

Myth #5: The cloud is not flexible

However, this cloud myth could not be further from the truth. The cloud is incredibly flexible, allowing businesses to scale up or down as needed. This flexibility is one of the main reasons why the cloud has become so popular in recent years.
