"Cloud this, cloud that..."
No doubt you have heard about the cloud before, but not everyone understands what the cloud is and what it can do. To put it simply, cloud services are computing resources that are delivered via the Internet. Cloud services from Partnered Solutions IT give you an alternative to managing your network from traditional solutions such as in-house servers. We can run your email and your active directory on our servers, and you effectively rent their use for your purposes.
Data Accessibility and Security
The cloud allows you to access files and work from anywhere. Through the sharing of resources to optimize your business’s performance, moving to the cloud can add life to your company’s computers by taking advantage of the cloud server’s processing power. Old worries like RAM or Hard Drive space being eaten up by data intensive programs are no longer an issue when you move to Partnered Solutions IT’s cloud because the network does all the heavy lifting. The cloud helps keep your employees on the same page when it comes to program versioning and ensures that your company’s critical information is safely backed up off-site and easily accessible in case of a disaster recovery event such as a fire, flood or robbery.
Low Entry Costs
Another fantastic reason to move to the cloud is the low entry costs associated with it. It would be expensive to purchase your own physical server as you would need to purchase one that not only meets your current needs but also the needs of your company in a year’s time. With Cloud Solutions from Partnered Solutions IT, you only need to pay for the services you want or need, when you want or need them. We have already covered the upfront costs associated with setting up servers.
Let’s say the physical server you purchased only has enough slots for 16GB’s of RAM. Once your company’s needs exceed that limit, you would need to purchase a completely new Server – one with the capabilities to handle even more future growth. This process is expensive and time consuming, and all of the costs fall on you. However, scaling in a Cloud system could not be easier. Cloud-based servers can be updated and upgraded with a simple call to Partnered Solutions IT, and we cover the cost of buying, running and replacing servers, and you only pay for the services you need. A move to the cloud really is a win-win for you and your business.
