We have been using public Russia WhatsApp Number List since our creation in 2008. And today we use the public clouds of Google, Dropbox, Amazon, Microsoft, OVH and Netexplorer for 99.9% of our needs. These last two are products of French companies hosting their data in France. All of our data and applications are in the cloud. Our IS infrastructure comes down to a few telecom boxes to manage our WAN links and our LAN and WLAN network. In fact, in 12 years, we have never had to complain about this choice: no availability incident, only 1 or 2 data loss incidents (linked to the consultants’ departure process) and on the other hand for 12 years

we have been accessing to our data from anywhere in the world, from any type of computer, tablet or smartphone, we had to total several hundred version upgrades on all the services we use with almost no impact and only positive. In short, unparalleled comfort and performance for very low costs in any case out of proportion with what we would have to pay if we hosted and had to ensure the maintenance in operational conditions of these same services on our own infrastructures. It is of course important to mention this element of context, since it also skews our point of view, and makes us jump to the ceiling more than many

The Performance Of Public Clouds As Seen

other consultants when we interact on digital topics with our clients who do not live. all, far from it, in the same context and do not have the same history as us. The cognitive biases of our clients Our clients also have cognitive biases when assessing the appropriateness of using public clouds. The first of these biases concerns the costs of MCO and changes in infrastructure, support software and business software. These costs are often poorly evaluated either because they do not take shadow IT into account, or because, and


this is often the case in public administrations, the cost of internal human resources is not taken into account or very partially, or because this cost is evaluated for very mediocre performance levels and sometimes having nothing to do with what public clouds such as Google, Amazon, Microsoft allow. We can’t blame them, it is indeed difficult to imagine what it means to have no availability incident in 12 years when some of our customers are “used” to having them every week. You get used to everything … unfortunately. The second cognitive bias is that of security risks. Our clients often start from a premise which is: my data is

The Cognitive Biases Of Our Clients

not safe with an American company that hosts and duplicates my data all over the world. We believe that this assumption is false in the vast majority of cases, because the large providers of public clouds such as Google, Microsoft and Amazon, on the one hand, are subject to incessant cyberattacks which force them to always be on top of the market. top in terms of security and on the other hand it is their primary interest, their reputation is at stake, to be more efficient than anyone else in the face of cyber attacks. Besides an article Recent news from Positive Technology shows that, on average, it takes a hacker 30 minutes to break

into an organization’s local infrastructure. Needless to say, this number is close to infinity for organizations like Amazon, Microsoft, or Google. An ambient cybersecurity discourse that fosters fear and confusion We had the chance to attend trainings and sensitizations in cybersecurity. We believe that these are sorely lacking in factual arguments. Under the cover of the argument “non-disclosure of information that could represent a security risk”, amalgamations are made, information without any means of verifying its qualification is disseminated, sometimes completely false shortcuts are made and we ask the audience to take the trainer’s word for it.
