In pre-cloud era, locating a server was a huge challenge for startups. There were reams of papers and a plethora of jargon. Today one can log onto a portal and server with route access. It is the biggest attribute of cloud – self-service.
There is no signing up for long-term contracts, and no lock-ins and you don’t have to spend a weekly amount of money for infrastructure.
Easy to scale
The thing about being in cloud is that with all the easy access and self-service, you can start small on any cloud platform and then you can scale. You start with one geography and become relevant in other geographies without you having a contract in place. So while sitting in Delhi you can be relevant to a customer in Russia.
Cloud allows you to scale out and scale in on demand and as per your needs. One of the biggest examples of elasticity is Uber’s surge pricing. The fleet of cars is there but the user demand is so high, and matchmaking between the driver and passenger needs to scale, so Uber has an automated elastic infrastructure, which makes them shrink and expand based on needs and demands.
Pay by use
With cloud you can start with a few cents for an hour or go as high as few hundred dollars a month. Again this is based on your need and requirements. There are times when you just have pay for that particular duration. This empowers any startup on a shoestring budget to go as far as they can without taking a toll on their ability to innovate.
With a cloud platform, startups get the power to innovate continuously. Unlike the previous era, there are no lock-in periods, and with elasticity, and pay-per-use models, you have the opportunity to innovate, build quicker and faster.
Accessibility to all
The same set of tools that are available to Fortune 500 companies and leaders of technology are now available to every organisation. Startups can pick and choose what they want to use and work with.
