What is Cloud Computing?
Cloud Computing is a convenient, accessible way of managing your company’s data. “Cloud Computing services” means that your data is stored outside of your physical location, and can be accessed over the internet from anywhere. With cloud services, your applications, servers, databases, and software are stored offsite and available in “cyberspace,” giving you full access from any location or device with an internet connection.
Cloud IT is an affordable, secure way to keep teams nimble, budgets manageable, and security tight for millions of businesses across the country. Remote server support is a great alternative to housing all of your company’s data on a big server that is physically located in your space, requiring maintenance, hardware upkeep, and increased utility costs to power and cool.
Cloud computing services are just as secure, fast, and customizable as a dedicated physical server. The only difference is that your data is stored in a virtual space that your cloud host manages, instead of a big piece of equipment that exists solely at your location. Google Cloud, Microsoft Azure (our cloud partner), and Amazon Web Services are all examples of cloud computing hosts.
CloudSmart IT partners with Microsoft Azure for cloud computing. As your managed IT services partner, we can help your business move all of your data to the cloud, manage your network, and access your Azure Virtual Desktop from anywhere.
How can Cloud Computing help my business reduce IT cost?
Companies of all sizes choose Cloud support services for a variety of reasons. Over the last decade, Cloud solutions have become an essential tool that helps businesses stay nimble, save money, and compete within their industries.
Moving your services to the cloud eliminates the expenses of buying hardware and software. Also, you will no longer need racks of servers and round-the-clock electricity for power and cooling. Not to mention the need for in-house IT experts for managing the infrastructure.
How can Cloud Computing help improve productivity?
Removing your on-site or hosted data center will relieve your IT team of necessary management tasks. These include software patching, hardware set up, and systems monitoring time. Cloud services remove the need for many of these tasks so your team can spend more time achieving more important business goals.
How can Cloud Computing increase reliability?
Cloud computing makes data backup, disaster recovery, and business continuity easier and less expensive because data can be mirrored at multiple redundant sites on the cloud provider’s network. Most cloud computing services are provided on demand. Vast amounts of computing resources can be provisioned in minutes, giving businesses a lot of flexibility without the pressure of capacity planning. You’ll receive the right amount of IT resources exactly when needed.
