Have You Explored The Advantages of Cloud Computing Technology on Cloud 9?

If your business has not claimed a cloud yet, you best do it now because it is getting crowded up there. There are advantages of cloud computing technology that every business should understand and evaluate for their own use. The cloud describes relief from clogged computers and allows file storage in a cloud server.

Biggest Advantages of Cloud Computing on a Cloud Server

The files a business saves on-site are dependent on the size of the hard disk storage capacity. Cloud computing allows storage to occur by use of an internet connection on a cloud server. This offers the ability to access the information quickly and easily when you need to use it again as well as the peace of mind that it is never lost and you will never have to develop a contingency plan covering loss of files.

Software to accomplish the storage and retrieval of files is available by a service provider offering Software as a Service (SaaS). The provider uses a huge cloud server, which accommodates many users who will pay a monthly fee for access. This is a small amount compared to the cost of purchasing physical hardware to gain larger hard drives with more storage space.

Murphy’s Law

The paraphrase behind this law says that if anything is going to go wrong, it will happen at the most inconvenient time. No time is the right time for Murphy to join your business staff and cloud computing makes recovery time quick and simple. All files and information are on the cloud servers – out there sitting on Cloud 9 – allowing you to snub Murphy if you wish.

You have done a back-up of all your data so that no one can accidentally remove or purposely steal anything. Members of your staff can access, edit and share files and folders within a project. Team collaboration is timely and efficient, which cuts the cost of working a project and strengthens the bottom line when you can take on additional work.

Sitting on Cloud 9

The advantages of cloud computing and placing your technological needs on a cloud server will help you adapt to the natural growth of your business – especially if you are not sure how or when a spurt will occur. Using the cloud as your storage solution also reduces energy consumption by up to 30% allowing you to “green” your business. While the competition is sitting around attempting to figure out a savings plan, you will be sitting on Cloud 9 growing your bottom line.

Smartphones and tablets can also access the cloud allowing you to be offsite and still be available and working. Effective management of time away from your business is an essential issue ripe for a solution. Contact us at Invenio IT and we will help you understand the advantages of cloud computing technology so you will move forward leaving other enterprises (whose technology is not in the clouds) in the dust.
