Cloud

What is cloud computing? Is a question we are often asked.

Along with “Where is it?” “Are we in the cloud now?!”  The term “cloud” is everywhere, and it can be confusing.

In the simplest terms, it means storing and accessing data and programs over the Internet instead of your computer’s hard drive. The cloud is just a metaphor for the Internet. It goes back to the days of flowcharts and presentations that would represent the gigantic server-farm infrastructure of the Internet as nothing but a puffy, white cumulonimbus cloud-shaped object, accepting connections and doling out information as it floats.

It’s not a new concept, it’s just newly marketed as cloud and that phrase is often thrown around by ISP’s. So for a business what are main benefits of cloud? Chances are you may already be using some forms – sales force for example is using cloud as are most CRM systems now. But the other benefits to a business using cloud are:

  • Reduce IT costs – Rather than purchasing expensive systems and equipment for your business, you can reduce your costs by using the resources of your service provider.
  • Scalability – Your business can scale up or scale down your operation and storage needs quickly to suit your situation, allowing flexibility as your needs change
  • Business Continuity – Protecting your data and systems is an important part of any business continuity planning. Whether you experience a natural disaster, power failure or other crisis, having your data stored securely ensures it is backed up and protected in a safe location.
