Everyone in business management wants to leverage the best possible tools to complete tasks simply and affordably.

There are many different ways in which the cloud enhances productivity.

Cloud: Avoid at Your Own Risk

Anyone in business, especially those who own or manage a company, always wants to use the best, most robust tools at a friendly price. One example is cloud-computing environments.

Cloud computing is becoming more prominent all the time, in some cases to the point of being the standard. As an example, industry analysts expect an incredible 90% of mobile traffic to be handled through cloud applications in 2019, up from 81% in 2014, notes Forbes. That may sound like a small amount of growth, but not when you consider that cloud traffic is projected to increase at a compound annual growth rate of 60% between 2014 and 2019.

7 Benefits of Cloud for Small Business

Generally speaking, cloud computing is a positive choice for business. It’s an especially easy and sensible direction when we are talking about SMBs and startups.

For one thing, the typical issues enterprises might raise related to cloud – particularly integration and security – are minimized at a small business because the systems are less complex and because growth is prioritized over concerns with third-party data protection. Cloud hosting services actually tend to be a major improvement in security over in-house systems, but that’s more obvious in the context of SMBs.

Which cloud hosting provider is the best option out there? When you look at infrastructure-as-a-service companies, you will find that the public cloud offered through Atlantic.Net is stronger than those of major competitors including AWS, Digital Ocean, Linode, and Rackspace.

Cloud Hosting Comparison

Every cloud provider out there wants to differentiate itself from the competition. The fact is that some companies try to outperform their rivals primarily through branding and becoming a recognized name rather than by developing a truly higher-quality product.

Why Redis Has Become So Popular

Why is Redis becoming such a popular key-value data store? Here is a look at the many reasons it’s succeeding.

  • Basic Strengths of Redis
  • Built for Speed & Languages
  • The Crowd Says Yes
  • In-Memory Processing for Media
  • Leaderboard Delivery
  • Redis-Ready Cloud Servers

Basic Strengths of Redis

Redis is a data structure server. As a key-value data store, Redis is similar to Memcached, although it has two major advantages over that option: support of additional datatypes and persistence.

Those two features may not immediately appear “major,” but they really do set this ecosystem apart. Persistence allows you to treat Redis as a legitimate database rather than an unstable and temporary cache. If you reboot, Memcached information is lost; but Redis data remains.

Developers Hold the Keys to the Kingdom

Since innovation is so fundamental to success in today’s rapidly evolving economy, developers have an incredibly important role, creating the digital roadways to be traversed by consumers, businesses, and the public sector.

Developers may seem to be a tiny population, but there are actually 18.5 million people who are employed in development, wrote Megan Swanson in Wired. “In a sign of the growing recognition of the value of developers,” she said, “President Obama recently became the first sitting president to write a line of computer code, as part of the Hour of Code Campaign during Computer Education Week.”
