It’s Time to Plug Into The Cloud

Cloud

Have you been considering making a move to the cloud, but are unsure if it’s the right move for you? There are several reasons why the cloud is the right move for you, and while scalable cost savings is usually the most significant selling point, it isn’t the only one. Let’s take a moment to examine some ways the cloud can provide positive benefits to your company, in ways that go beyond the usual considerations.

The Cloud Offers a Modern Backup and Recovery Plan

One of the most underappreciated aspects of SMBs is their lack of data disaster planning. The truth is, most businesses don’t realize how common data loss is and don’t consider the effect the loss of their data will have on their survival until it’s gone. Too many businesses plan for today and not tomorrow, not realizing that they are only one disaster away from their business closing...permanently. The cold reality is that if you lose a significant amount of your data, your business may no longer be able to provide the services your customers not only need but expect, and these customers will turn to someone else who can.

The cloud makes it easy to backup, and of equal importance, restore your data, ensuring your company will be able to return to business as usual as quickly as possible. Your team can’t get into the office? A cloud-based solution allows your organization to access your data from anywhere; this will enable you to keep your business running and your team productive...even if your primary office space is unavailable.

The Cloud Promotes Collaboration

As noted, the cloud facilitates communication and cooperation between members of your team. As data is located in a virtual space, the cloud allows your data to be accessed from any or shared to any location. This creates a work environment which provides several benefits.

  • Reduce the need for application troubleshooting or technical support, as the cloud offers nearly universal platform and device compatibility.
  • No need to transport data via USB drives or email files to team members, or yourself
  • Change history reduces the chances to work from old versions or overwrite new files.
  • Cloud-based software ensures application compatibility.

The Cloud Increases Efficiencies

Finally, instead of continuously needing to purchase physical storage space and maintain the hardware and software to monitor it, the cloud allows you to buy storage space on an as-you-need basis. This reduces the inherent waste in purchasing space you will eventually grow out of because you needed some additional space for now. With cloud storage you can, for example, temporarily increase your storage space and when the project is completed return to your standard allotment. This differs from physical storage which is a fixed expense; whether you use all the storage or not and once full, you have to purchase additional storage.

Migrating to the cloud is one of the best steps you can take to bring your business into the present and with enough flexibility to adapt to the future. The cloud can open a new realm of possibilities for your business and how your team interacts with each other. There has never been a better time to consider moving to the cloud.

Fuse Networks can show you how to take full advantage of the cloud’s flexibility and make your business more secure while providing your team with increased accessibility to documents and collaboration than you would ever have believed possible.
