What is cloud computing?
Cloud computing involves the use of a network of remote servers hosted on the internet to store, manage and process data, rather than a local server or personal computer. Many people don’t even realise they’re using the cloud. Did you know that when you update your Facebook page via your phone, you’re accessing the data via a cloud service?
During recent years cloud computing has become more popular as more and more businesses realise the wide variety of advantages on offer. Here are five reasons on why you should migrate to the cloud and how Buy IT Back can help you.
Cloud computing may reduce the ongoing cost of managing and maintaining your IT systems. For example, reductions in the cost of buying specialised hardware and software, physical building space for on-site data servers and equipment.
Increasingly businesses are favouring a ‘pay as you go’ approach, whereby you simply pay for services depending upon your business requirements. Essentially cloud computing offers great value and can release much-needed cash which could be invested in other areas of your business.
Due to the advancements in cloud computing technology huge amounts of data can be accessed via a few clicks. This provides easy access to key data, increases productivity and allows clients to focus on key business decisions rather than IT management issues.
Cloud computing makes data backup, disaster recovery and business continuity easier and less expensive, because data can be mirrored at a number of sites on the cloud provider’s network.
Business requirements can change rapidly in the marketplace and cloud computing allows you to increase or decrease your computing needs quickly and simply. This means that your computing environment rapidly matches the requirements of your business.
