Clearing Up Your Questions About the Cloud

Jul 1st, 2017

The Cloud continues to be a common buzzword. But for many, the cloud is still a mystery. So we’d like to help clear things up and answer your biggest cloud questions.

What is the cloud?

Computing based on the Internet instead of running apps from software downloaded on a physical computer or server in your building.

How easy is it to use?

It’s simple—with a cloud app, simply open a browser, log in and start working.

How can I benefit from cloud computing?

  • Be productive anywhere
  • Improve security
  • Free up staff
  • Simplify disaster recovery
  • Lower the total cost of ownership

Who is using the cloud?

Almost everyone—According to RightScale, 93 percent of businesses are using cloud technology in some form or another. Another source, NSK Inc., states that 82 percent of companies say moving to the cloud has saved them money.

Should I leverage the cloud, too?

With all the benefits cloud offers it’s kind of a no-brainer to hop on the cloud bandwagon. But, before you take the leap, you need to do your research—which cloud model should you use, what apps and workflows should you move first and, how can you maximize performance and minimize risk?

When you’re ready, we can help you out. Contact us to get expert advice and make a smart, smooth transition to the cloud.
