Cloud-based systems are becoming more and more popular, but what exactly are they and how could they help your business?
The cloud is a remote ‘holder’ of information, and is typically the internet. It’s called cloud because of the symbol used to depict this type of services, and probably because of the metaphor as well!
As your business grows, you may well find that your IT infrastructure isn’t as robust as it used to be. Your server might be under-performing, especially if you are asking it to support a growing business or remote working.
To help alleviate this pressure, you could move your infrastructure to the cloud, meaning – in the simplest terms – that your data is stored and accessed via the internet. If you have an iPad and an iPhone then you may already be using the cloud to access certain files across both devices: your photos or documents for example.
Using the cloud can easily translate from small personal use devices to full company application. It doesn’t have to be via a public network either, if your security alarm bells are starting to ring. You can create your own private cloud, which is almost as heavenly as it sounds!
