With the upfront cost of servers and software licenses becoming more and more prohibitive for many businesses, cloud technology has become, for many businesses, a solution that provides all of the benefits of a server onsite without the upfront costs.
As technology progresses, more and more services are being hosted in the cloud and accessed remotely, it is a highly effective solution and makes life simpler for all in your business. The Cloud service enables your team members, wherever they are, to tap into all the same information, resources and services as the rest of the team in real time.
With all of your IT system hosted in a purpose built data centre it is protected by several layers of security both on and offline. There are a number of layers of power supply so should one fail another kicks in and similarly with internet services meaning that downtime is kept to an absolute minimum.
If your business does not want to go as far as a fully hosted solution but is still looking for flexibility offered by a cloud solution Office 365 is a great half way house.
