Cloud computing helps businesses by delivering on-demand computing power and resources swiftly, in many instances minimizing or eliminating the need to buy, install, and maintain new and expensive physical hardware and infrastructure. But at the same time, organizations still need to keep their most valuable data and IT systems within their own on-premises data centers due to key considerations such as security, privacy, safety, and meeting regulatory mandates.
