Cloud Computing Explained

Key Benefits of Cloud Computing

Moving to cloud computing can reduce the operational costs of running your IT systems and the cloud solutions we offer, will not sacrifice your operational capacity.  Indeed, having the flexibility of being able to scale your requirements up and down means you can retain the capabilities of a local server without the associated expense.

 

There are plenty of benefits to cloud computing and some of these are listed in the following:

 

  • Reduced IT costs
  • Scalability in both directions
  • Business continuity
  • Enhanced mobility
  • Collaboration enhancements
  • Flexibility of access and work methods
  • Automatic updates and current applications

Applications of Cloud Computing

Storage

By having your company files stored in the cloud, you can securely access, through all devices and from all locations, your working data for collaborative projects and operations.

 

Your organisation can operate with confidence knowing that your files are always there with the ability to revert to previous versions of files should they be deleted or altered by mistake.  Removing the need to even think about backups lets you get on with the operational requirements of your actual business and not the day-to-day security of your data.

 

With the ability to implement file access permissions, your company data will be safe and secure and with an auditing facility, you will have traceability on who’s accessing what and at what times.

Email

Migrate the management of your email services so you can concentrate on managing your business. We can remove the hassle for your company by implementing and maintaining a reliable, business-class cloud based email solution.

Desktop

A cloud based desktop can be be customised to integrate with the applications your business already uses.  Running Windows 7, 8 or 10, you will be able to access your desktop from any laptop, PC, phone or tablet from anywhere in the World where you have Internet access.

Applications

Cloud applications, or Software as a Service (SaaS), provides access to software that you would normally have on your local device. As this software is hosted centrally, it can receive all the latest updates and can remove the need for the maintenance and installation tasks that usually fall on an organisation or user.

 

Virtually all the common applications used today are available as programs hosted in the cloud including Microsoft Exchange, Microsoft Office, Adobe graphics and web design programs and Sage Accounting.

Backup

Let go of the aggravation of your backup and restore routines with no more corrupt tapes, lost media or off-site storage requirements.

 

Using the cloud is a great way have your data backed up automatically and it’s secure.  If you do need to restore any of your files, the ease of retrieval and access will have you back up and running in minutes with the ability to restore anything from a single file through to an entire data image.

 

It can be very confusing if you are new to the possibilities and concepts of cloud computing so our service will provide you with an uncomplicated  guide to what you can achieve and provide you with the expertise to deliver.
