Cloud Computing: Propagating Environmental Friendly Infrastructure

Cloud Computing: Propagating Environmental Friendly Infrastructure
The rapid industrial expansion has put natural resources at risk to the level that environmental sustainability has become one of the primary concerns of companies and governments. As the entire world is also well aware of their contribution to the environmental degradation, people have started to take measures in whichever circle possible to tackle natural resource crisis. Most of their efforts include a focused reduction of carbon footprints. By going green, people are realizing that contribution of each person is necessary to overcome such a situation. From reducing paper use to efficient electricity consumption, people have found ways for significant contribution. Cloud Computing is also one such platform that provides both the firm and their consumers to follow the same path. Environmental Benefits of Cloud Computing include:

Energy Efficient
At surface it may seem that cloud server consumes a lot of electricity due to its distributed servers, however, the reality is not so. The likes of Hybrid Cloud, Integrated cloud and so on have redefined the efficiency measures in cloud computing. They use a flexible cloud stretch that takes the space according to the need of the storage. In this way, no server sits idle consuming electricity. The amount of energy needed is exactly equal to the amount of energy used. This contributes to not just saving the energy but also cuts down on business expenditure. It requires fewer machines and makes optimum use of those in executing the tasks. The cloud space does not sit idle and this results in a better allocation of resources, contributing thereby to environmental wellbeing.

Infrastructural Advancement
The deployment of energy efficient systems that use minimized resourced has a twofold advantage. Beside reducing electric consumption, the cloud system takes shape of a well-organized infrastructure. Public cloud data centers are usually established in close vicinity to the facilities which results in prevention of loss of energy during heavy data transmission. They use less wattage for smooth run of their data centers and are designed at scale and built for efficiency across infrastructure to achieve optimal utilization.

Reduction in Climate Impact
There are several other ways in which firms impact the climate. Apart from deforestation, industrialization has also led to an increased emission of carbonic particles. The climate impact is greatly reduced by the cloud deployment as a result of fewer carbon emissions. Even AWS holds that the average corporate data center has a dirtier power mix than the typical large scale cloud provider. AWS and its partnered cloud providers use 28% lesser carbon-intense power mix. For that, these cloud providers use perfect temperature for their cloud servers that lets systems run at peak performance level without further expanses. The cloud infrastructure eliminates the wasteful spending of energy because of the use of energy efficient equipment and fewer carbon emissions.

The Paperless Option for Businesses
Going paperless is one of the highly praised steps in conserving the environment. It helps in minimizing the deforestation at a significant level. Firms usually keep forms and files that contain company data. Cloud computing allows the company to deal in electronic data. Moving the data to cloud is like making the data available at a centralized location which can be accessed by the authorized personnels. By eliminating the need of paper material, cloud computing enables the firms to invest in on going environmental contribution.

According to the Guardian, companies can cut their carbon emission to half by switching their data to cloud servers. With such a massive potential for sustainability and propagation of environmental resources, cloud computing is definitely a thumbs up.

Cloud computing has played a vital role in securing and strengthening the environmental ecosystem. When embarking to cloud, numerous quantifiable benefits follow. The instances of energy reduction, increased efficiency and computing capabilities, going paper-less and so on, all closely denote these benefits.

The green and eco-friendly aspect of cloud is mostly overlooked alongside other multifaceted advantages of cloud computing. It has impacts far beyond just the conservation of energy. It, in a way, redefines the modern computing. The firms no longer have to worry about inefficient space nor should they worry about wastage of energy and money. Cloud computing also immunes the companies against carbon credits. They cannot afford to be a threat to the environment while being passionate of catering to the needs of its customers. The contradiction of natural wellbeing and environmental threats in industrial agenda is eradicated through the deployment of cloud computing.

Life as an IT contractor | Network World

Independence, job variability, earning potential, skills development. But is it worth it?

The upside of life as an IT contractor is alluring. You get to be your own boss, accept only the jobs you want, and work flexible hours. With each assignment comes the opportunity to learn new skills and gain exposure to different environments.

But there are obvious sacrifices – job security and paid vacations, for starters. As an IT contractor, you’re also often responsible for your own benefits (healthcare, retirement), paying taxes, and marketing yourself for the next gig.

Tech pros who successfully balance the pros and cons of contracting play an important role in the IT world. They provide manpower when workloads spike and can bring key expertise or niche skills to a team. In recent years, companies have increasingly relied on a contingent workforce to augment their full-time staff. According to new survey data from IT staffing and services firm TEKsystems, 26% of IT hiring managers expect to increase headcount for contingent workers in the second half of 2017 (another 46% report that headcount will remain the same for temporary workers, and 13% say it will decrease).
