Why Are EdTech Companies Moving to Cloud Computing

Education Technology Insights | Tuesday, October 26, 2021

EdTech companies are moving to cloud computing for better productivity and reduced expenditures.

Fremont, CA:Sharing resources, programs, storage, and information through a network is known as cloud computing. There are two parts to cloud computing: the front-end and the back-end. The user interface is in the front-end section, and the application, platform, and infrastructure that make up the cloud environment are in the back-end section.

Users can access apps, resources, and data stored in the cloud through the front-end interface. For example, users can log in to their Google account to check their email or Dropbox account to view files shared by other users. The back-end interface, on the other hand, is the information-security backbone of cloud computing technology. The back-end is the user interface that houses all of the servers, computers, and databases. To make operations more manageable, the central server has to follow a few sets of protocols.

Cloud computing works by distributing a large amount of work among multiple resources. When it comes to executing apps, local computers do not require a lot of resources. Instead, the task is handled by a cloud environment's network of servers. As a result, the user's software and hardware resources are reduced.

For data center administration, cloud computing has become a new trend. The following is a list of reasons why EdTech companies are moving to cloud computing:

Cost: Expenditures of purchasing software and hardware equipment, setting up and running data centers, such as electrical charges for power and cooling of servers, high-skilled IT resources for infrastructure management, and so on can all be eliminated with cloud computing.

Scale: Cloud computing enables firms to scale flexibly to meet changing demands. It provides the appropriate number of resources at the right moment to meet the company's demands, such as computer resources, storage, and bandwidth.

Speed and security: Cloud computing services are mostly provided on-demand and can be configured easily within minutes. With just a few clicks, companies can create databases and resources.

Productivity: There is no need for IT resources to set up hardware with cloud computing. These IT resources can be utilized in other areas for better productivity and meeting business goals.

Reliability: Cloud computing makes multiple copies of the same data on different servers. This ensures data reliability as copies of this data can be used for disaster recovery or data backup.
