The Benefits of Cloud Computing for Business

Eight tips on why cloud computing has a positive impact on businesses – and why they should move away from local on-location servers. 

Before we highlight the positive effect cloud computing has on business, it’s important to understand what it actually is.

Cloud computing is the practice of using a network of remote servers hosted on the Internet to store, manage, and process data, rather than a local server or personal computer.

The local server has decreased in popularity and cloud-based servers are continually being relied on for the daily operations of a company.

In fact, an impressive 85% of small to medium-sized enterprises implemented a cloud computing strategy into their plan last year.

This implies cloud computing is a big deal. It is certainly worth the investment.

  1. Fewer operational issues

Cloud computing may appear to be daunting with regards your limited knowledge on the impact it will have on a company, but it is far from complicated.

This method of memory and data storage has fewer issues than other infrastructures; cloud computing is typically bug-free and is more reliable compared to an on-location server.

  1. Save yourself money!

Many cloud-based software’s, like Office 365, allow businesses to pay for their cloud computing in monthly instalments.

This ultimately makes your cloud computing incredibly affordable thus spending less money in the long-term. Imagine if your on-location server required repair… think about the amount of money that could cost!

  1. Cloud computing consumes less capital expenditure

While we’re on the topic of money, cloud computing doesn’t cost as much as purchasing an on-location server and the price tag which comes with installing everything you need to accommodate your day-to-day work.

  1. Improve your work-life balance

Cloud computing presents members of staff with the ability to access their documents away from the office. This has proved to be hugely beneficial for individuals who work on the go, may need to dash out of the office, or for people who work from home.

  1. Increase your team collaboration

The beauty of cloud-based computing is wherever you are, you can access files for as long as you have an internet connection. Colleagues can work together on files and re-edit in real time. Cloud computing enhances the accessibility of all you are working on.

  1. The cloud is always on

No need to worry about re-booting your server when there is a power cut, or being continually fearful your on-location server will corrupt thus losing everything. The cloud is always active which means you can access files anytime.

  1. Reduce your carbon footprint!

Not only are you burning energy by maintaining an on-location server, it is costing you less money too!

Pennies make pounds. By upgrading to cloud computing a business will reduce its carbon footprint.

  1. Simple as 1,2,3!

Transferring from a local server to a cloud-based server can be easy. With millions of businesses making the decision to change, support with transferring everything to the cloud is easy to find.

To summarise, cloud computing is the way to go for any business which is reliant on technology for its daily operations. Anything cloud-based is substantially more secure with updates happening automatically. By switching to cloud-based computing your life is simplified so you can concentrate more on the growth of your company.
