While ‘the cloud’ gets a lot of attention in the business community, people aren’t always clear about what the cloud entails. A simple way to explain the cloud is that is stores data and files in one central location via the Internet.

Taking advantage of the cloud will allow you to take your business to the next level. Here is an overview of how your business will benefit from moving to cloud computing:

  1. Offers cost savings. Consider the maintenance costs, staffing costs, replacement costs, and infrastructure costs associated with maintaining servers to store your data. These costs will be significantly reduced when moving to cloud computing as all data and files will be stored digitally through the Internet. Cloud services often offer further cost savings by operating on a pay-as-you-go model, meaning that you don’t pay for more than you need.
  1. Grows with your business. A key challenge for business owners is ensuring they have enough computing power and capacity to support the needs of the company. The cloud alleviates this concern as it grows with your business.
  1. Enables data to be accessed remotely. Because the cloud is accessed via the Internet, data and files are accessible from any location. Many companies today have employees that work remotely, and being able to access information on-the-go improves productivity in the workplace.
  1. Provides security protection. The cloud provides security protection in two ways for your business. First, it prevents file loss by serving as the ultimate backup system. Its data center is backed up multiple times and contains built-in redundancies. Additionally, because security for the cloud is handled by a team of professionals that stay up-to-date on the latest threat environment, your business will have the peace of mind knowing that it has the best line of defence in place against hackers and cybercriminals.

Using the cloud gives your business an opportunity to gain a competitive edge by improving productivity, lowering costs, and strengthening security.

It’s easy to feel overwhelmed about the cloud when people start using terms like SaaS, PaaS. However, when you partner with an organization that truly understands cloud computing and how it can benefit your business, you don’t need to worry about this technical jargon.
