Cloud, Cloud, Cloud!
It’s still a buzz word and everyone is using it. We are asked regularly about it.
What is it? Do i need it? Should we change over?
There are many misconceptions of what it is and what it means and how our clients fit into this hype. Put simply the Cloud can be a server that lives in a data centre in a location that isn’t on your premises.
So, do I need the cloud?
The chances are you are already using the cloud and have been doing so for years without even knowing it because the buzz word of cloud wasn’t yet in use. Think of your net banking, all your finances are managed on the banks systems and you access them via a web portal. This is a form of cloud computing.
A lot of our clients have moved running their own email servers over to Microsoft Office 365 or Google Mail. These are the most well-known cloud services and can really super charge a businesses’ communications.
What are the Benefits?
The benefits are
- you can upgrade with little to no upfront capital costs,
- fixed monthly payments and reduced support required to maintain your own server.
- We are here to help you make these changes and to advise what the most appropriate path is for your business needs.
We offer hosting for our clients and active management of those services. So, if you’re unsure or would like to discuss your needs then we encourage you to contact us for a meeting so we can review and assist.
