White paper: The importance of E-commerce
E-commerce can improve revenues for all businesses irrespective of their size or market. There are a number of significant IT challenges for businesses to maintain and develop their e-commerce activity: How do I keep my customer data secure? Can my e-commerce site work for all my global customers, in new countries and new markets? How easily can I scale IT capacity to meet demand? What about seasonal variations in demand?
In this white paper we will look at how cloud hosting provides a number of benefits for e-commerce solutions and how the Interoute Virtual Data Centre IaaS cloud can provide the perfect e-commerce platform. VDC can be used to deploy an e-commerce solution that responds to the challenges mentioned above: it is scalable and flexible, inherently secure, and has globally- distributed compute zones that are closer to your customers.
