Cloud Services and Hosted Solutions
It is very likely you have heard all about the hype over cloud services and hosted solutions and how it is “the next big thing”.
Yet, despite all the hype, no one really seems to understand
what cloud computing is or how it can help your business.
As hurtful as it feels, we know that no one likes spending money on IT. Although we all want our laptops, e-mail and applications secure, running fast and readily available 24-7, your friends aren’t going to visit your office and be impressed by your new server, and it certainly won’t provide you with any bragging rights.
So the question is:
How can you get the tools you need to work without spending a fortune?
By hosting your server, data and applications offsite (Cloud Services and Hosted Solutions) you free yourself from having to purchase, install and maintain your own in-house computer network. This means you are not required to buy a new server and workstations every 3-4 years to keep everything updated; all you need is an Internet connection and a web browser and your cloud provider does the rest.
Cloud Services and Hosted Solutions are NOT a good fit for every company; however for some clients, cloud can actually lower their IT costs by up to 75%, greatly improve the ability for remote workers to connect and work, simplify their entire IT infrastructure and genuinely solve a number of technology problems that they have been trying to work around for years.
