Your email, project management app and Netflix all have one thing in common: they are part of the cloud. Cloud solutions have quickly become our new normal, and they have some tremendous advantages to offer your business.
Remote work and the digital transformation have been on the rise, and cloud computing is here to help you seize this incredible opportunity.
Cloud Computing: Giving Your Business a Boost
They say, Necessity is the mother of invention. The pandemic has revealed this in spades. Businesses and individuals have found themselves having to work from home and find solutions that allow them to do so.
Many companies have found their solutions in the power of cloud services. In the process of moving to the cloud, they discovered that it offers a variety of advantages.
Let’s go over the benefits you could experience by migrating to the cloud:
If you are in the mood for some amazing tacos but your friends want to hit the new pizzeria, you want the flexibility to adjust your expectations and have a good time.
The same principles apply to work. If you typically work in-office, but a natural disaster knocks out your power, having the flexibility to pick up right where you left off, with everyone working from home, is a tremendous benefit.
Not to mention, as your business starts to grow, you need more bandwidth. You will have more data, more people working for your business and more customers! The ability to scale and capture this growth easily, with minimal disruption, can work in your favor.
Cloud storage will do this for you. You will find it easier to adapt to unexpected events, scale to meet your growing business and reduce the overall downtime of your organization.
Access your backups simply and securely
CloudRadar estimates that the cost of a network outage is an astonishing $10K per hour. No business wants to watch that much money go flying out the window. Losing data can be a massive blow. Not only do you find yourself missing files, you must also spend a ridiculous amount of money and effort trying to recover the data.
Cloud solutions, however, give you the lockbox you need. They generate data backups automatically and provide you with security and freedom.
Cloud services: at your service
Your servers require a lot of work.
- You need to update them and your applications over and over
- You need to check on them regularly for maintenance
- You need to make sure they are properly protected
What if that was all taken care of for you?
Cloud solutions can help you reduce your IT maintenance costs by 16.79%. Cloud servers are not on-premise, so you do not need to worry about updating them continuously. That becomes someone else’s job.
For you, this means more resources that you can dedicate to growing your business and investing in your customers.
Reduce your operational costs
No one wants to pay for something they do not use. That also applies to your cloud computing.
With the cloud, you do not have to invest money in the software or hardware associated with running your business. Setting up the cloud calls for minimal initial investment as well, so you do not have to worry about upfront costs. Once you have the cloud in place, your subscription model means you only pay for the services you will use.
Bringing the team together through cloud solutions
They say, No man is an island. As you have likely already seen, when you can bring your team together so that everyone collaborates easily, they can accomplish tremendous things.
While working remotely and promoting team flexibility is great, you need to have the tools that keep your team connected. You do not want your on-site and off-site teams to get disjointed or feel disconnected.
The cloud makes it easy to build workflows, share files, post updates, schedule tasks and get greater visibility into what everyone else is doing. When people feel connected, you can boost team morale and your work culture.
Your IT security: your fortified armor
In 2020 companies lost $3.86 million from data breaches. This devastating loss was, unfortunately, caused mainly by human negligence and malicious attacks. Businesses of all sizes have realized the importance of making IT security and data privacy priorities.
With the cloud, you will have access to incredible security. With a managed IT provider, you have someone helping you monitor and maintain your security. Meanwhile, the automatic backups help you maintain improved protection for your data and files.
