Many business owners shun new technology and cloud computing, perhaps one of the newest computing trends, often falls victim to its own success. Businesses everywhere, regardless of size or industry, can benefit from the lower costs and streamlined processes cloud computing can offer.
Simply put, cloud computing is using computing resources in another location as if they were owned by your business. An application you use every day and all its corresponding data are still owned by you, however, the data is stored on a physical server (or multiple servers) that could be halfway around the world. The result is a scalable, low cost computing solution that is particularly beneficial to small and growing businesses that need realistic solutions to present day issues. Cloud computing means your business doesn’t have to buy and maintain expensive servers or dedicate office space to a data center
Clouds can be public, private, or a combination of both, but which one is best for your business?
