The world’s population is set to reach 9.7 billion by 2050, and if we are to feed them, global agricultural production must rise 69% between 2010 and 2050, according to the United Nations. The connectivity and data from Internet of Things (IoT) technologies can drive trends monitoring and boost production. With such a multitude of complex devices collecting large volumes of agricultural information, agribusinesses need a solution to securely store and process the big data. Basic server hardware can cost upwards of $100,000. Owning enough servers to support the farm data pulled from across vast fields is costly and impractical. It is time to swap on-site data capacities and data corruption for the on-demand scalability and security of the cloud.
What is Cloud Computing for the agri-food sector?
Cloud services, including Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI), utilize the internet to host and store applications and data that farmers can access from anywhere at any time. Public, private, and multi-cloud infrastructure environments provide scalability, accessibility, and security that are crucial to system uptime and agriculture production.
