Is Cloud Computing Right For Your Business?

Cloud Computing is becoming the buzz term around the IT world these days. Clients hear the term and are instantly interested in how they can benefit from it. But is it worth all the hype? Should you dump all of your hardware now and go all out Cloud? Before you do jump into the Cloud here are a few things to think of first.

What costs are involved with the Cloud?

Small businesses can take advantage of the low costs involved with Cloud Computing. Operations tend to be more flexible in smaller businesses so greater savings can be made using the Cloud. Bigger companies with more complex IT systems can end up spending more by switching to the Cloud.

How will you be using the Cloud?

Cloud Computing is a great fit for small businesses looking to work remotely, on the road or from home. Hosted Email is a good example of a Cloud service that companies can really benefit from. It cuts down on purchasing the expensive servers and substitutes it with a small ongoing payment. Companies with complex internal IT systems or poor internet connections are maybe not the best fit for Cloud Computing.

What about using a hybrid of both local servers and the Cloud?

Rather than going all out Cloud it is a perhaps a good idea for businesses to select the services that make sense to operate off-site but keep the important data onsite. An example of this could be storing all of your core data and files locally but using a Cloud service to host your emails. As your confidence in the Cloud grows you can shift more data over to this platform.

 

Hopefully this has given you a few aspects to think about before making the decision to move to the Cloud. At robertson technologies we can advise you on the best approach for you and your business to take.
