Cloud computing is a concept that could possibly save your business quite a bit of money on software, hardware, upgrades and services.
Instead of purchasing hardware and software for your office, you can use “the cloud” to put your programs on a highly secure “super-server” online. All you need is an Internet connection to your office and you’re good to go.
There’s a good chance that MOST of the software applications you use every day are now “software as a service” applications. In other words, you don’t have to install them on your server or PC – you simply access the software on a pay-as-you-go model for only the licenses, space and features you use. This gives you the ability to access highly sophisticated software and functionality at a fraction of the cost – or even for free – and without long-term commitments.
It is quickly becoming unnecessary for some businesses to purchase and maintain an on-site server. Now companies can host one or more of their applications, data, e-mail and other functions “in the cloud,” in off-site, highly secure, high-availability “utility” companies that have far more power and resources than you could ever logically have on-site as a small business. And with devices getting cheaper and Internet connectivity exploding, cloud computing is suddenly a very smart, viable option for small business owners.
