Simply, the cloud means using a Service Provider’s facilities to store your information which you can access via the internet or through a private tail from the office to the core infrastructure. Cloud solutions can be accessed from anywhere in the world whether it be your files, emails, phone system or any other company resources needed.
Cloud hosting services provide hosting for websites on virtual servers which means the resources required for maintaining your website are distributed across more than one web server, and are utilised when needed. This greatly decreases the chances of any downtimes in case of any server failure.
How it works is that each server in the cloud assists in taking on a particular set of tasks, and in case any of the servers in the cloud malfunction, another server will temporarily provide their resources and take over the tasks that need to be done.
The benefits of moving your business to the cloud would be:
- Reliability – knowing your company files and information are backed up and protected in a secure location. In case of power failure or natural disaster being able to access your data again rapidly allows you to conduct business as usual, minimising downtime and loss of productivity.
- Flexibility – As long as employees have internet access, they can work from anywhere. This flexibility positively affects your workers’ work-life balance and productivity. For example, you have the ability to access data from home or via the commute to and from work. You can connect to your “virtual office” if you need access to your data while you are off-site.
- Pricing – Moving to our cloud services may reduce the cost of managing and maintaining your IT systems because rather than purchasing expensive systems and equipment for your business, you can reduce your costs by using the resources of our cloud services.
