But before you commit to “the Cloud,” maybe you’d like to have a few things made clear.
In the first place, “the Cloud” isn’t really a new idea. It’s simply being able to access applications, data and other services – that are stored or hosted on remotely located servers – from your office or mobile device via the Internet.
And, not coincidentally, to store your valuable data on those same secure servers.
Don’t get us wrong. The Cloud may not be a new idea, exactly, but it is a great one. You don’t need all those onsite backup systems if your data is being stored offsite. That cuts down on power consumption, maintenance and expensive hardware. Plus, it frees up a lot of floor space.
More importantly, you don’t have to worry about losing your critical data in case of fire, flood or some other disaster. It’s all safely stored on redundant servers and available whenever you need it.
You can even put your entire IT operation in the Cloud. Email, network security, PCs, servers, firewalls, security apps, software … whatever. Because when it’s in the Cloud, it’s out of your hair.
But is the Cloud where your business ought to be?
We’d say that depends. You may be ready to go totally into the Cloud. Or It could be a “Partly Cloudy” solution makes more sense. We’ll be glad to help you figure it out with a free onsite consultation.
