Cloud Computing

WHAT IS CLOUD COMPUTING?

C loud Computing isn’t using a computer at high altitude like the term may suggest. In a nutshell, Cloud Computing is all about using PCs and mobile devices, to access your applications through the Internet. This can be done simultaneously, over a large network of devices and in real-time.

You’re already using Cloud Computing every day, such as Internet Banking and Online Shopping. Even accessing your webmail is another form of Cloud Computing. Many businesses are migrating to the Cloud to store their business data, saving thousands on hardware, software and in-house IT expenses.

2014 is the first year the majority of workloads will be on the cloud as 51% will be processed in the cloud versus 49% in the traditional IT space.

Benefits of Cloud Computing

With your applications hosted in the cloud, you don’t need to install anything on your PC – everything is accessible through your web browser. Some applications however have made apps available for your mobile device that syncs with your applications in the cloud.

As your applications are hosted in the cloud, you don’t require the expensive in-office server and hardware to store and access these. This alone can save a business thousands on IT infrastructure and maintenance costs.

With your data and business applications stored in the cloud, you can access it any time, anywhere and on any device.

Software and feature upgrades are automatic with cloud computing applications, meaning you don’t have to install a thing.

Cloud computing applications can scale up and down as your business requires and is as easy as the click of a button.

Storing your data off-site and in the cloud reduces the risk of loosing data due to hardware failures or unforeseen in office disasters. Security of your data is managed at an enterprise level by the SaaS provider so you can stay focused on your business.
