Cloud Computing

You may have heard the term “Cloud Computing” but most people have no real idea what it is, other than thinking it’s the next new big thing!

The word ‘Cloud’ was a term that used to be used by the telecom industry, but is now used to describe the internet. It is now a term used to describe the demarcation between your internet provider, the internet and where it joins your home or work network.

So what makes cloud computing attractive to business, and why would you make the decision to move to a cloud computing environment?

Here are four main benefits:

  • Cost 
    When you look at the cost of hardware, buying that hardware, paying for licenses, then putting it in a secure location somewhere within your premises, that is all quite expensive. But there are soft costs as well - power, support, cooling and even things like insurance. Cloud computing can take a significant capital expenditure and turn it into an operational expenditure, certainly saving you money in the long run. 

  • Flexibility
    Businesses today need to be flexible and agile, whether you have a new application you want to roll out or whether you want to increase resources - disk space, bandwidth, anything like that you want to scale or change the resource behind your IT, you can do this much more easily with flexible cloud computing. 

  • Reduces Risk
    How do you back up your data? How do you recover that data in the event of a disaster or accidental deletion? All these things are important and if you look at the services these days offered by cloud computing it can significantly reduce your risk and increase your productivity and efficiency. 

  • Increased Performance
    There is nothing more frustrating for users than poor performing IT applications. By moving to a cloud computing environment you are moving to an environment where professionals are looking at how that application can be optimised. System upgrades are automatically applied and hardware upgrades are carried out with minimal disruption to you, and at no extra expense to your business.
