Managed Cloud IT Solutions
Take your business to the next level with Managed Cloud solutions!
“The Cloud” (Or cloud computing) is a term that has been thrown around a lot over the past several years. There is a lot of excitement over the potentials “The Cloud” can offer small businesses, whether its enhanced value or cost savings to your current environment.
The major problem with this is that while you may have heard about “The Cloud”, you might not be 100% sure of what it truly is or how you can take advantage of it. If this is the case then you’re not alone and we are here to help!
What is The Cloud?
The Cloud (Or cloud computing) is the process of accessing your emails, applications, files, data and more over your internet services whether that is NBN, 4G/5G, Fibre etc from anywhere in the world. Instead of your company data being stored on a server at the office, the data and applications are being stored on high-speed, redundant and high-security services in datacentres that you can access at any time from any device.
The choice on transitioning services to the cloud cannot be taken lightly and it takes a properly implemented strategic plan to ensure it is the right decision for you and your businesses vision.
Cloud Services Options
There are many options to choose from when it comes to Cloud services. The most common cloud services businesses choose can include Office 365 & Microsoft Azure, Google Apps, Application-specific vendors for your ERP or practice management systems, Accounting Software, and Email services.
like many things in business each company is unique and that is no different for the cloud solutions. Some choose to move their entire organization infrastructure to the cloud, removing any risk associated with onsite hardware or services while other companies opt to only put specific services like email or file storage to the cloud allowing them to maintain more control over vendor-specific applications that may remain in a server onsite.
Making the transition to the cloud can be a difficult decision and you need to determine whether it is right for your business and have clear expectations of what you hope to gain by doing so.
While Cloud Services are amazing, they are not the right solution for every business. Before you speak with someone who recommends moving your entire office to the cloud, they should sit down with you and your business and get a true understanding of how your business operates and what you want to achieve.
