Do you need help deciding what your company should be moving to the cloud? Many companies are unsure of what the cloud means for their company's IT infrastructure. Our Technicians have experience evaluating a current IT infrastructure and working with our clients to identify a path to the cloud that is effective and affordable.
What is the Cloud?
Cloud storage and computing often refers to server resources that are made available through the internet, as opposed to physical servers that used to be required locally in each business for computer storage and accessibility.
While cloud providers maintain files and servers in a remote physical location, the data is accessible through the internet to any physical location. This allows data to be less restrictive and provides small businesses with more access to competitive server environments without having to invest in the hardware entirely on their own. Shared hosting and server environments help businesses share the investment cost.
What are the benefits of moving to the cloud?
Once a business completes a transition to the cloud, the benefits are realized quickly.
- Redundancy and Availability: There is typically more redundancy built into cloud services that maintain backups. This can provide a cost-effective way of keeping crucial business services running and available during a disaster or local disruption.
- Easy access: Cloud services are designed to be accessed from anywhere so when you can’t make to the office or the office is having internet issues again. You can go anywhere with internet access and continue to work.
- Maintenance: You no longer have to worry about upgrading your service or performing maintenance. It is usually the responsibility of the cloud service provider to take care of maintenance and upgrades to the services provided.
