Exploring the Cloud — Why It’s Right for You

A great way for small and midsized business owners to save time, money and hassle on a daily basis.

Cloud storage aka cloud computing uses remote data centers accessed over the Internet to store information and boost network performance. Over the past decade, cloud network solutions have grown in popularity as Google, Apple, Microsoft and IBM now offer cloud hosting services.

IT managers and users alike favor cloud computing; it’s secure, frees limited onsite network resources and data can easily be shared with others in the network.

Data storage in the cloud means little or no reliance on hard drives or USB flash sticks. Data sharing is also greatly simplified and the risk of data loss through theft or media corruption is considerably lessened.

Benefits of the Cloud:

  • Only use (and pay for) as much storage space as you need when you need it. Cloud-hosted servers enable mass-scale computing power and minimize IT requirements and physical storage, providing significant savings.
  • IT outsourcing — the host provides all support, reducing infrastructure costs.
  • Easily access files from any device. Saving and accessing files through the cloud allows everyone to work from the same master document. Administrators can even implement access and permission controls.
  • Users can take advantage of host resources — online document and spreadsheet templates, for example — freeing computer disk space for other applications
  • Password protection secures file access to only those with proper authorization. The cloud adds security for its users by backing-up data off-site, decreasing the potential for hackers, viruses, and other cyber-security issues.
  • Small and midsized businesses are starting to realize (and appreciate) the advantage of an IT infrastructure that scales up or down based on the needs of their business. As your business expands, your use of cloud services can, too.

The cloud enables your IT infrastructure to evolve as quickly as your business. Unleash the power of the cloud with cloud applications from Swift that can increase your IT reliability and up-time.
