Some believe the Cloud is the future of business. It’s not the future; it’s here and now.
Cloud Services are computing solutions that are available to you via the internet. Be it email, communications, file storage, all you need is an internet connection.
With cloud services, you do not have to have your own IT infrastructure. This means less time spent dealing with IT issues. It removes the IT complexity from your business and lets you focus your time and energy on what really matters — your work.
Is it expensive?
Cloud Services are cheaper than providing your own IT infrastructure. You reduce costs by removing expensive IT hardware maintenance and upgrades. You reduce support costs by using Virtualization technology. Your essential programs can be loaded into a cloud environment, then delivered to your employees’ desktops, smartphones and tablets. Cloud Services are billed monthly, so it becomes a predictable operating expense. Moving to the cloud and removing the IT headache means you are buying yourself back time and money every single month.
Won’t I lose control?
This is a common concern. Rest assured that when using Cloud Services, you are still in control. You have complete command of your data. Think of it like being a passenger in a taxi. You don’t drive the car, but you control where it goes. What’s more, you can relax while it goes there.
I can see my servers now. I know they are safe and secure. – Shouldn’t I stick with in-house servers?
Cloud Services takes your data offsite, keeping it safe from fire and theft. Cloud backup solutions maintain data integrity. Security, patching, maintenance and upgrades are all taken care of. Taking your data offsite is akin to putting your money in the bank, versus hiding it under your mattress.
What if I need more power?
Cloud Services are perfect for this. Perhaps you have a large project that increases your IT requirements temporarily. In the cloud you have scalability, so your IT resources can expand to meet this need, then scale back as required. This will make you business more agile and responsive in an ever-increasingly fast-moving world.
Do I have to stop business to move to the Cloud?
Your business can continue to operate as usual. The move will be carefully planned, staged and timed according to your business needs.
