The public cloud gives you complete control over your digital marketing workloads. With the many sizes of servers available to you and your business, the public cloud lets you build websites and web apps with the technology that you’re most comfortable with. You also have the flexibility to choose the operating system, language and tools that are right for you.
Traffic to your company’s website and demand for your company’s web applications can fluctuate. A lot. From late at night when there isn’t much traffic to the moments just after you’ve launched a new campaign. The public cloud gives your digital business the benefit of auto scaling so the resources that power your websites and web apps can elastically and automatically grow or shrink with demand.
Digital businesses that run their operations and IT infrastructure in the cloud have the benefit of multiple pricing models that allow them to optimize costs for stable workloads (like data storage) or variable workloads (like digital marketing). The pay-as-you-go pricing model for variable workloads allows you to pay only for what you use. That means that the elasticity of the public cloud can save you a bundle without having to buy large amounts of hardware upfront. You’re charged only for the resources that you use so that you can spend your money on things that shift your business forward and differentiate you from the competition.
EASY TO USE
Running development and test workloads in the public cloud enables you to remove hardware-based resource constraints to quickly create developer environments and expand your testing machine footprint. You can get started quickly and easily set up a machine or a whole application so that every developer and tester can be working with the same configuration.
The public cloud allows you to pay only for the development and test resources that you use. You can start up new systems during the day and then turn them off at night to avoid paying for idle hardware. With multiple pricing options to meet your needs, you can use only what you need.
FASTER TESTING & TIME TO MARKET
Without the need for new hardware, developers can start a new dev environment within minutes. Plus, test infrastructure can be created quickly to run on many machines which means test passes can complete faster and shut down without the need for facilitates, utilities, management or maintenance. You can test often, fail faster and make improvements where needed, allowing you to increase your speed to market while obtaining good performance results in your development and test environments.
