What is the cloud exactly?

“Cloud” is a buzzword that means: the internet – in other words, a network of servers. Each server has a different function. Some servers use computer power to run applications or “deliver a service”, while other servers in the network are responsible for storing data.

When you use our Cloud Services, we determine what types of cloud computing models and important cloud foundational services are best suited to solve your business problems.cloudd

  • Web-based e-mail services
  • Hosted office suites and document collaboration services
  • Database processing

  • Online data storage and backup solutions

What are some benefits of having cloud services?

  • Flexibility – If your needs increase or decrease, it’s easy to scale your cloud capacity
  • Reduce capital costs – there’s no need to spend big money on hardware or software
  • Work from anywhere – if you have an internet connection, you have access to work
  • Increased collaboration & document control – your team can access, edit and share documents in real time, any time, all the time
  • Security – No matter what happens to your device, you have access to that data, and can remotely wipe the data from lost laptops or devices
  • Environmentally friendly – you only use the energy needed and you don’t leave an over-sized carbon footprint
