Granted, cloud migration in Hong Kong comes with a few risks, but practically all of them are delegated in some form. After all, your business will no longer be keeping data on-site, but rather, in a highly secure location. Many clouds come with robust security features and specialised mechanisms to protect users’ resources. For added security, cloud providers typically conduct automatic security patching.
Doing cloud migration in Hong Kong also provides cover in times of disaster. This helps ensure that your business operations continue without (or with very minimal) setbacks in spite of unfortunate incidents. You won’t have to worry so much about experiencing fires, earthquakes, data centre outages, local power outages, and so on. Keep in mind that those incidents usually lead to any, several, or all of these:
- Downtime of self-hosted applications
- Damage to hardware due to outage
- Need for backups and higher storage hardware
- Less productivity, fewer services, and lower revenues
Migrating your Hong Kong business to the cloud reduces the chances for any of those issues affecting your business. Not to mention, if your computers malfunction or get wiped out accidentally, you can still access your data and applications anytime, from anywhere, rather than totally lose them. And in the very unfortunate event that your computers fall into the hands of unscrupulous entities, you can use the cloud to remotely wipe out all of the data in your machines.
Many cloud providers also provide one-click backup and recovery services. Some of them are even able to keep backups of your data in different geographic locations for greater security.
