Cloud computing is more than just a hot IT buzzword or the latest trend. It presents you with a new and improved way to operate your business on many levels. While secure hybrid cloud services are touted as a safer and less demanding alternative to the option of having a dedicated server on-site, the reality is that there are numerous financial benefits associated with cloud computing as well. In fact, you may be able to improve your bottom line in several ways by using a managed hosting solution that offers cloud-based solutions. With a closer look at how your company can benefit financially from this transition, you may be ready to start exploring the options today.
Through a secure hybrid cloud function, your employees can more quickly and easily collaborate. This includes sharing information, editing, presenting and more from any location where they have an Internet connection. The old way of sharing files, for example, was to email the files or to save them to a network server. However, emailing files may mean that workers are working on two separate versions of the file at the same time. Storing the files to a network server means that only those connected to the network can access the files. If the server is damaged, all work is lost. When you want to reduce these and other inefficiencies in your office, cloud services are a great solution.
There are many costs associated with the old way of doing things. Without the cloud, most businesses will need to have at least one or more network servers in operation in their office. There is cost associated with purchasing this equipment as well as maintaining it, licensing it, upgrading it and more. There are utilizes costs, labor costs and even the cost associated with the physical use of your office space. You can reduce overhead through cloud computing.
Diminished Liability Risks
When you have a physical server on-site, you run the risk of having the entire server stolen or of having information on that server stolen. When customers’ or employers’ valuable personal information is stolen, you run the risk of facing liability-related expenses. With a secure hybrid cloud function, you can dramatically reduce these risks, and there is financial benefit associated with this.
Making the transition to cloud computing sounds like it would be costly and time-consuming, and because of this, some companies have not yet made the transition. However, with how simplified the process of cloud computing has become, this may be a natural and easy process to complete. You can begin exploring cloud-based solutions today as a first step in making this transition. You may find the information and resources available at Carbon60 Networks to be very useful.
