Over the past few years, the digital Cloud has been revolutionizing the way data is stored and accessed. Why? Well, mainly for these three reasons: flexibility of delivery, scalability, and operational cost savings. 79% of business owners said that the flexibility of the Cloud is why they switched, 76% cited scalability, and 79% said the cost savings is what finally convinced them.
How great would it be if you could work from anytime, anywhere in the world? Seems impossible, right? Well, no, it’s not. Not with the Cloud at least. The way cloud computing works is that your data will be stored off-site in highly secure data centers that are very well protected, so no need to worry about your data’s security here. Now, when it comes to accessing your data, here is where the flexible part comes in.
To access your data from the Cloud, you only need a device and an internet connection (and the necessary credentials, of course). This means you can work from home, another city, another country, another chair… you name it. Your data is no longer being held hostage by your own office when you move it to the Cloud.
Being web-based also allows for more file – collaboration and communication among employees.There are many applications out there like Office 365 that make real-time collaboration easy, efficient, and convenient.
Another very appealing aspect of computing this way is endless scalability. In the Cloud, you are no longer constrained by physical limitations and on-site restrictions. Your network and storage can, and will, easily grow with you. You just simply need to request more space. Your MSP, such as us here at Alliance Technology Partners, won’t make things difficult for you. We love it when you succeed, and we will support your success by scaling with you painlessly and effortlessly.
This also saves you any additional costs you may have needed to buy physical equipment back in the days before the Cloud. You can forget those days now.
One of the best parts about cloud services is that they are billed at a monthly, subscription-based rate. This makes budgeting a whole lot easier, and the costs these services come at is very affordable. In addition, cloud-based apps are always automatically updated and maintained by your MSP, so you don’t have to worry about doing any of that yourself. You just sit back and enjoy your new services and the extreme convenience and efficiency they provide.
Like a caged animal bursting through its chains, nothing can keep your success potential locked down when you migrate your operations to the Cloud. We know all about that here at Alliance. Have any more questions or want to start migrating your services over? Contact us today!
