Public Cloud Challenges

August 25, 2020

Many companies are lured to the public cloud for the promise of no capital investment, pay-as-you-go scalability, increased reliability, and freeing up IT talent. While there are advantages to moving to the cloud, there are also several potential downsides.

At the top of the list is the fact that the security of data held within a public cloud is a cause for concern. These concerns include theft of data from a cloud application by a malicious actor, in complete control over who can access sensitive data, lack of staff with the skills to manage security for cloud, and advanced threats and attacks against the cloud provider.

You can scale up with a public cloud, but you can also run into surprise costs if you need to move large amounts of data in, out, or even within the public cloud.

Performance can be an issue, too. Your data transmission might be affected by spikes in use across the internet. If application performance is a deal-breaker for you, then you may be forced to go with a private cloud.
