Broadly, the cloud refers to shared computer resources, including power, software, data, and storage. Clouds may be public, such as online file sharing sites, or private, such as online corporate networks. Private clouds may be operated by an individual business or outsourced to a hosted private cloud run by a technology provider, such as FIT.
Cloud computing has become such a buzzword in recent months because of its numerous benefits, including:
By leveraging group purchasing power, you can enable faster adoption and lower spending on tech staff, training, licensing fees, security, and more.
By enabling staff to work from any location, including their home, a client site, or on the go through a mobile device, they can be more productive.
By using the cloud, you can make bigger leaps faster because you aren’t invested in enterprise-wide systems like your larger competitors.
By outsourcing cloud services, you can reduce onsite technical staff, paying for expertise as needed.
By entrusting a cloud technology partner to provide infrastructure, support, security, and disaster recovery, you can gain near-perfect uptime and avoid hardware failures and outages.
