Imagine being able to run a secure, mobile computer network that fits the needs of your business to a tee, but doesn’t require expensive hardware or frequent management and maintenance? Well, thanks to the cloud you can!
You’re probably already using the cloud in your day-to-day life.
Online banking websites, email providers like Hotmail and Gmail, as well as the file-sharing site Dropbox, live in the cloud. These sites store data online, meaning you can access your files from any Internet connection.
A business using a cloud-hosted computing system operates in the same way. Instead of hosting files and applications on hardware located in the business’ physical office, data is housed in a virtual server.
For many businesses, this can be a more affordable and flexible way to manage their IT needs.
