What is Cloud Computing?
Simply put, Cloud Computing is utilizing computer technology
based on the Internet, as opposed to running applications
or programs from software downloaded on
a physical computer or server located
inside a building. It's a solution
that's quickly growing in popularity,
especially among small- to
With pay-as-you-go pricing, small- to
medium-sized businesses no longer need to spend
large amounts of upfront capital on hardware and software.
And they can have the same access to tools and computing
power as larger companies.
Why Cloud Computing?
So why are so many businesses moving to the Cloud?
Because Cloud Computing increases
efficiencies, helps improve cash flow,
reduces storage space and much more.
Access and Share Data —
Whether at a hotel, business meeting, working remotely from home or on vacation, the Cloud allows users to access their important business information anytime, anywhere, using any device.
Increase Functionality and Efficiency —
With Cloud Computing, companies can make regular and incremental upgrades to improve technology whenever it becomes available to benefit from new opportunities and stay competitive.
Save Costs —
Because the Cloud platform uses a utility-based model with pay-as-you-go pricing, large upfront capital expenditures are replaced with predictable ongoing costs. Plus, it’s much faster to deploy for nominal start-up costs.
Easily Scale Up Or Down —
The Cloud allows companies flexibility and scalability. Need more bandwidth? No problem. A Cloud-based service can quickly meet your changing demands.
Enhance Security —
Because of huge economies of scale, Cloud service providers are able to afford a wide array of defensive measures such as encryption, authorization, authentication and firewalls. These safeguard information from compromise, often at a level of security that exceeds what many companies can provide for themselves.
Disaster-Proof Critical Business Data —
Companies that use Cloud-based services, no longer need complex disaster-recovery plans. Cloud providers take care of most issues, and do it faster and more economically.
