Choosing the Right Cloud Provider & Datacenter

Once you have decided that utilizing the cloud is the right decision for your business, you will need to find the right provider and datacenter. You are placing all of your important data or even your company’s entire IT infrastructure in the hands of this provider, so you must make sure that you choose the right one.

 

The best way to find the right cloud provider is to begin by talking to some of the provider’s current clients. These are the people who have already made the decision to trust the provider, and they will have the best insight into how the provider works and what it can offer. Try some of these questions to discover more about the service that you are considering:

  • Did you find the on-boarding process relatively easy to accomplish?
  • What is the technical support like when you encounter problems?
  • Have you personally experienced any serious security concerns or incidents?
  • How have your security concerns been handled by the provider?

 

If you are dissatisfied with any of the responses to these questions, you do not have to use that particular provider. Keep looking and asking questions until you find a cloud service that meets your needs and that makes you feel comfortable.

 

Technology is constantly changing and improving, and you need to be able to trust that your datacenter will keep up with the evolution of security needs. For any cloud service, find out whether there are security protocols in place, including:

  • Physical security of the datacenter
  • Environmental controls
  • Back-up measures for power and internet
  • Back-up measures for your data
  • Technical support when you need it

 

Frequent system audits are also necessary in order to ensure that all datacenters meet or exceed industry standards for data security. When you are searching for a cloud provider, ask potential candidates about their compliance to SSAE-16/SOC1. This set of standards measures the amount of control that a datacenter maintains over your sensitive data and financial information. An audit will report any flaws in data flow. You should also inquire about compliance to the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). This regulation ensures the security and privacy of private health information that is stored or hosted in a datacenter.

If your cloud provider’s datacenter is compliant with both of these standards, you can rest assured that your sensitive data will be monitored and its integrity will be maintained.

Choosing to put your business information or IT infrastructure in a cloud provider’s datacenter rather than housing it on-site is an important decision that requires careful vetting of your potential provider. Once you have chosen the right provider, you can trust that their datacenter will keep your company’s important information safe and secure.
