Cloud computing is a term that many people have heard of, but what does it mean for your business?
It is a term used to describe the model of storing data and accessing and using applications that are hosted on the web rather than installed on local machines in your own offices. It is commonly used for hosting e-mail (via exchange server) or database applications.
Cloud computing services are often provided by a third party and the advantages for your business in doing this are:
To reduce the cost of not having to purchase expensive hardware such as dedicated servers or software licenses, as these are provided by the supplier
To reduce the cost of not needing in-house technical staff for installations, upgrades and troubleshooting.
To provide easily access of applications in the office or via a remote location
To stay up to date with application upgrades
To have a robust security and backup procedure that is automatic in place
Cloud computing allows you to grow your business. By logging on to web based software your staff can access their files and applications from anywhere, making your business more flexible.
