Myths About the Cloud

Tech Insights / 110718

As it always is with most new technology or new ways of thinking – that technology often suffers from misconceptions of the way things work in this new regime or the lack of proper insights.


Cloudeon has gathered the most common mistakes expressed by people or organizations regarding the cloud and the way to approach it.

#1 The cloud lacks security.

Not true. Security in the cloud is in most cases tighter than your existing system.

Cloud security is improving all the time. In most cases, cloud vendors will have data encryption functionality and security procedures that are much more stringent and far beyond the capabilities of any current on-site solution. All cloud vendors employ experts in security and software – and data is safer in the hands of well trained professionals who are cloud certified according to over 70 international security standards including ISO27001 and 270018.

#2 Migrating to the cloud can take months - even years.

Not really. Migrating to the cloud can be done within just a few weeks.

Both the provider and Cloudeon take care of all the aspects during a migration and will give you all the relevant information and tools to make the process as quick and smooth as possible. Our migration tools and procedures enable hundreds of servers and systems to be migrated at a very fast pace. Our tools can deal with all types of systems and services.

#3 The cloud is expensive.

Not true. Cloud technology services will save you money.

By utilizing the cloud, you don’t have to buy or install anything, removing the need for up-front capital expenditure. Security, power, cooling, maintenance and hardware refresh costs are included!

#4 The cloud is not flexible nor suitable for our situation.

Not correct. The cloud is both flexible, modular and can grow with your business.

The cloud is a flexible solution and cloud providers have a wide range of cloud-computing offerings to meet the needs of all organizations. The cloud is flexible, so you only pay for what you use and remain in control of your resources. You have the ability to scale up or down, on demand, without ever having to invest in new hardware.
