Cloud Computing is the next big thing, and whether you have a PC or Laptop at home or at work, soon you could be accessing all your files, photos and emails across the Web. Cloud computing entrusts services, typically centralized on in-house Desktops/Servers, with a user’s data and software applications over a network.
End users access cloud based applications through a web browser or a light weight desktop application while the business software and data are stored on servers at one or many remote locations. The basis of the Cloud operation is to provide the same or better service to end users whilst making their applications and data more accessible for an ever increasing mobile world.
A Cloud Computing solution allows a business to get their applications up and running faster, cheaper and easier. The Cloud requires less maintenance than a standard in-house Server(s) , and enables an IT Team/Department to respond more rapidly to additional IT requirements (such as additional servers and storage) in order to meet fluctuating and unpredictable business demand.
While the Cloud may not be appropriate for all business types, it is an ideal solution for new start-ups and existing businesses looking to streamline their integration with other aspects of IT. The right Cloud based solution can bring real value to a business as well as increased IT flexibility, making a business more competitive with larger businesses.
Some of the benefits of a cloud solution are:
Cloud computing offers a business or end user IT resources without having the knowledge of the IT systems in order to deliver it. The Cloud can provide a business with a far greater range of applications and services, providing scalable and more tailored services.
