If you aren’t familiar with the term, simply put, cloud computing is the delivery or computing services over the internet. It can be a big shift from the traditional way businesses think about IT resources, but there are many advantages to switching, including:
Cloud computing cuts out the expense of buying hardware and software as well as significantly reducing running costs.
Choosing a cloud-based backup solution provides you with flexibility and scalability in your IT growth. It can deliver the right amount of IT resources exactly when they’re needed, and from the right geographic location. Meaning you can scale your computing power, storage or bandwidth up or down as and when you need to.
Performance and Speed
The biggest cloud computing services run on a worldwide network of secure data centres, which are regularly upgraded to the latest generation of fast and efficient computing hardware. Making downtime a thing of the past.
Many cloud providers offer a set of policies, technologies and controls that can help to strengthen your security this helps to protect your data, apps and infrastructure from potential threats. Also, because your data is stored in the cloud, you can access it no matter what happens to your machine.
On-site data centres typically require a lot of “racking and stacking”, whereas cloud computing removes the need for many time-consuming tasks such as hardware setup and software patching. Leaving you free to focus on the things that matter, like growing your business.
Cloud computing makes data backup, disaster recovery and business continuity much easier and less expensive because data can be mirrored at multiple sites on the cloud provider’s network.
While the above points spell out the benefits of cloud computing for your business, moving to the cloud also benefits the environment. When your cloud needs fluctuate, your server capacity scales up and down to fit. So, you only use the energy you need thus reducing your carbon footprints.
