Cloud Benefits

Running a business of any size today requires that you make use of today’s most innovative and affordable technology. Whether it’s to improve performance or Disaster Recovery planning, utilizing cloud-based servers and backup solutions is essential. When you want to expand your brand without putting a lot of money into a restrictive and outdated IT infrastructure, you can stay at the top of your competitive game by moving your company to the cloud today.

 

As the cloud goes mainstream, businesses everywhere are capitalizing on the new technology—both internally and as a potential area for expansion. The faster you move your business to the cloud, the faster you will be able to incorporate new technological advances into your business model. The longer you wait, the more difficult getting a handle on the new services will become. Start now, start small, and soon enough your business will be launching ahead of your competition. It is not every day that an opportunity presents itself to take a giant business leap forward without any risk to the business’ foundation or to day-to-day operations. You can get cloud services up and running while everything else stays in place then, when you are ready to switch over, do it seamlessly and without any glitches.

 

IT infrastructure is extremely costly, from a monetary and environmental perspective. Housing, cooling and powering your business servers requires a large amount of energy. From an individual business’ perspective, this matters, but it also matters on a macro level. Provisioning a virtual cloud server for each of your clients is far more efficient than providing a dedicated server for each one. As more and more businesses move to the cloud, we will reduce carbon emissions exponentially. That alone is a good enough reason to switch.

 

Time is money when it comes to serving your customers. When your IT infrastructure goes down, you are unable to help your clients and thus end up losing money that your business needs to survive and grow. You could even lose sales and profits to your competitors. Because it is not prone to costly, time-consuming outages, the cloud proves to be the better, more affordable option for your business. You avoid losing time and money and your business can grow and profit at a pace that is not available with outdated technology. The latest studies show that more companies of all sizes are deciding to switch to cloud and away from outdated, costly, and time-consuming technology. By 2020, close to 80 percent of all businesses worldwide will have made use of cloud technology.

 

By moving your business to the cloud, you stay on top of your competition and make available technology that will let you serve your customers better and increase your profits to even higher levels. For years, many businesses have been utilizing cloud services to run things behind the scenes. There is no foreseeable end to the cloud—it is growing every day as more people realize how powerful, cost effective and useful it really is—and for many small and medium-sized businesses, the sooner they implement cloud services, the better for their bottom line.

Alan’s Cloud Tip of the Month – March 2013   no comments

cloud and exclamation sign illustrationWhy move to the cloud? Here is March’s quick cloud tip:

Cloud technology optimizes existing resources…

Suppose your company is facing hard times in managing hardware and software. Let’s say your servers are running extremely low on space, and there is not enough room left for any new data to be stored. To overcome such a situation, cloud services can be employed. In turn, existing servers get a rest from the over-loaded traffic, and the work environment of the company becomes more synchronized.

Moving to the cloud optimizes your resources, but with the help of managed cloud services, businesses are able to focus time and attention on other business-related activities.

Virtual Office and Cloud Computing! Is it Just a Fad?   1 comment

Posted at May 9, 2012 @ 9:28am Office Virtualization

Cloud computing has improved to the point that virtualizing the office computing needs should be an option. Depending on the size of an organization, as well as how they use computing applications in the business process, there are a multitude of options that should be considered.

Before you consider the options available and how they could benefit your organization, we feel the need first to define exactly what cloud computing actually is. Cloud computing is nothing more than placing your organization’s applications and information in a datacenter and accessing those applications and data over the Internet.

By understanding the concept of cloud computing, you should now be able to grasp the idea of what a virtual office infrastructure is. Instead of the office server that stores and runs your applications being located on premises, it would be hosted in a datacenter. The same basic setup you have in your office would simply be set-up more efficiently and securely in a datacenter and instead of accessing the applications through your local area network(LAN), you would access your applications over the internet. The major change would be, instead of getting to work and logging onto the PC at your desk, you would be logging into the virtual desktops of your organization which would all be connected to the cloud-based server, thus forming a virtual office.

Seems like a fairly simple concept so why all the buzz about cloud computing? As with most new concepts, there are also two opposing opinions on the subject of cloud computing benefits.

One decision maker sees the ability to enable an organization to access to the company computing infrastructure from anywhere at anytime from any device that is connected to the internet. This would give their outside sales team the ability to better communicate with the office staff as well as provide their customers real-time information on their products and services. Cloud computing would also allow that same company the ability of letting some of their staff to work from home as an option or by choice. Additionally, with cloud computing, you have built-in disaster recovery. If some sort of catastrophic event such as a fire or flood were to occur at the main office, the company could still operate with its office staff accessing their work from home or a temporary remote office enabling them to communicate with their customers and still carry on the business operations.

Additionally, from a financial viewpoint, your overall computing expenses will be reduced as you no longer will need to finance a continually aging and outdated computing platform as well as eliminating the costs such as power, cooling and office space to run a computing environment.

The opposing side sees cloud computing as not yet proven as a concept or maybe they don’t like the idea of not controlling and managing the company hardware. They may not believe in the concept of allowing employees access to the computing infrastructure from outside the office which they may feel would not be as secure. It could be that the IT manager of the company is worried that his job could be in jeopardy if the company moves to cloud computing, and instead embracing the opportunity to improve their company’s computing system, he is doing everything in his power to convince the decision makers not to consider cloud computing as an option.

The truth of the matter is, office virtualization and cloud computing are here, rapidly growing, and being embraced by both large and small organizations all over the world. Similar to how it is now commonplace that everyone has their own cell phone, every business will eventually be participating in some sort of cloud computing offering. You can choose to maintain your status quo or start taking advantage of the accessibility, scalability, security, and cost savings of virtualizing your office with cloud computing — or you can sit back and wait a bit longer to see if this is just a fad that will pass — like, for instance, like the telephone booth.
