Migration to cloud
What are the benefits of cloud computing for businesses?
There are some distinct advantages to cloud computing which makes it very attractive to businesses. And these are:
Reduces IT costs
It allows businesses to free up capital that would otherwise go into purchasing expensive infrastructure like a physical server. This is because the payment structure is such that you are renting space from a service provider’s data centre and thus you pay only what you use. Businesses can also save on other IT costs such as licensing fees and purchasing software.
Helps keep track of spend
Businesses can choose how much to use and when, paying a price for the service that can include data storage, back-up, virus protection and data capacity. This helps with business budgeting and forecasting.
Businesses have ready access to data and information anywhere and anytime which means that business can go on as usual and is not limited by physical restrictions.
If you are running a business you can ill afford to run up against data capacity issues. And this happens more frequently than you think. Storing data and information is a common problem for businesses that rely on the traditional method of using an on-site physical server. Cloud computing eliminates this headache as you are able to ‘rent more space’ so you don’t have to worry about having to purchase another expensive server.
