Cloud Computing, what is it and why its important to your business?
Cloud services are services made available to users on demand via the Internet from a cloud computing provider’s servers as opposed to being provided from a company’s own on-premises servers. Cloud services are designed to provide easy, scalable access to applications, resources and services, and are fully managed by a cloud services provider.
A cloud service can dynamically scale to meet the needs of its users, and because the service provider supplies the hardware and software necessary for the service, there’s no need for a company to provision or deploy its own resources or allocate IT staff to manage the service. Examples of cloud services include online data storage and backup solutions, Web-based e-mail services, hosted office suites and document collaboration services, database processing, managed technical support services and more.
Cloud Computing is about working smarter, leaner, and more efficiently. It cuts your energy consumption and reduces your carbon footprint. One of the biggest advantages is that it doesn’t follow normal business hours – it’s always open.
