5 More Advantages of Cloud Computing  – Part 2

We’ve already gone over 5 important reasons why your business can benefit from Welcoming the Cloud, but it doesn’t stop there. We’ve created a Part 2 to the Benefits of Cloud Computing to keep you fully in the loop about all the advantages:

Security

Many cloud service providers offer multi-layered security systems to protect your mission-critical operations. Cloud data centres offer a broad range of security options – up to and including choosing an earthquake-free location. 

Free up IT Resources

Be proactive, rather than reactive. Cloud computing frees up your IT staff from routine maintenance, so they can put their expertise towards high-level issues and strategic planning.  

Mobility

The cloud allows employees to work from anywhere, resulting in increased productivity and the ability to hire employees based on skillset, rather than location.

Scalability

Easily scale up or down based on your business’ fluctuating needs. Only pay for actual usage, instead of running excess resources as a buffer.

Eco-Friendly

Cloud computing means fewer machines, more efficient equipment, and centralized climate control centres.  

With all of these advantages on top of the previous five, it’s not surprising why so many businesses are switching to cloud computing. That said, it’s important to assess your needs, options, and budget, to choose the right technology for your organization. Ask the following questions before you decide:

  1. Does this integrate with our existing tools? Switching back and forth is going to be a drain on productivity if your systems don’t play nicely with each other.
  2. Does this comply with privacy laws? What personal data do you store and is it bound by local privacy laws? Don’t get caught off guard!
  3. Do we have the infrastructure to support this? Launching a cloud solution only to find it throttled by slow internet is entirely preventable. Don’t build on a shaky foundation – consider whether or not you need to upgrade your connectivity first. Dedicated Fibre is a great choice.
  4. If this goes down, what are the consequences? If an outage brings all your revenue generation to a halt, a managed connection is a worthwhile investment.
