Cloud Services

According to the Cloud Industry Forum, 62% of UK businesses are switching to the cloud.
 
What does that actually mean?
If you don’t know, don’t worry. You’re not alone.
So many business owners hear a term like “the cloud” and nod sagely as if they understand. But inside they’re thinking “er… yes I kind of know what that’s about, but I couldn’t explain it to someone else”.
 
And if you can’t explain something, you don’t really understand it. Which means you can’t use it to your advantage.
(in this case the cloud saves you money and makes your business more efficient)
Put simply, the cloud is all about accessing your data and applications through the internet rather than having your own server.
Chances are you’re already using it every day and you don’t even realise. Online banking, Facebook – that’s all done via the cloud.
 
The really great thing about the cloud is it allows small businesses to grow and keep up with the very latest technology, without spending a fortune.
We’re experts in cloud computing. So you can trust us to hold your hand through the whole process and answer any questions honestly.
And we’ve been busy writing a new guide. It tells you everything you need to know but have been afraid to ask. In a non-techy, non-jargony way.
 
 

Convenient, Ad-Hoc network access to a whole host of configurable business centric resources

The cloud can provide your business with a whole host of opportunities, from virtual computers, servers, and networks, all the way through to online storage and data playgrounds. The great thing is, you don’t have to put all your eggs in one basket with one single cloud provider – you could have your storage in a datacenter nearby (or anywhere in the world really) and your servers on a different cloud service like Azure. That’s just one of hundreds of scenarios your business could benefit from.

You may be thinking ‘but I could just purchase PC’s outright and install them in my office?’

True, you could.

But PCs in the office aren’t scaleable; yes you can swap out components as they die or become redundant, but you then have to spend time refitting them, cloning hard drives, and potentially replacing them if something goes awry.

With cloud computing, you can scale out PCs, and essentially create your very own computer legion using templates – meaning you could create dozens of PCs in a matter of minutes (and let’s face it, that’s substantially faster).
