A multitude of cost-effective security offerings are available that do not require you to purchase them for your own data center. Instead, you can simply add them for the workloads you are using in the cloud.
Network firewalls are built into your Virtual Private Clouds (VPCs). There are Web application firewalls, ways to enable encryption at rest and in motion, as well as key management services for encryption. You can also enable monitoring and logging of your API calls, log aggregation, and threshold monitoring with alerts. These services can help meet your compliance requirements – like HIPAA and PCI. There are also plenty of third-party marketplace pay-as-you-go offerings for adding security to your workloads.

For customers with significant security requirements, find and utilize datacenters that specialize in security with a high performing hosting infrastructure with native security features fully managed by a security operations center.
Scaling & Flexibility
Flexibility is one of the great features of the cloud – allowing you to scale up or down as needed. When you hit a specific threshold on your CPU or RAM, you can automatically scale up new server storage or environments – or create new ones at the push of a button – and it takes minutes or less to accomplish. Using containers really takes advantage of this benefit.

Public cloud spending is expected to grow to $482 billion in 2022, or a 21.7 increase from 2021 ($396 billion).
There are built-in redundancies for essentially all components of the data center. Typically, 99.99%+ uptime for servers and up to 99.999999999% for long-term storage systems. When you are looking at archiving documents or putting them onto lower-cost storage, you can use the long-term storage systems and be confident that you are not going to lose your data.
Cloud hosting offers business continuity – scheduling back-ups and snapshots, and automating their storage off-site. There are many disaster recovery options available to you that are services by your provider, or even by third-parties. Define your RTO and RPO and select whichever option will meet those requirements.
