Does my business need cloud hosting?

It’s 2021, and we’re creating more data than ever before. Ecommerce is booming as the current pandemic rolls on, and we’ve seen the single largest shift to remote working and online learning we’ve ever experienced.  Your organization needs reliable access to all of this digital data, right?  It’s not just nice to have – it’s necessary.  So, how do you manage your organization’s data, not to mention keep it safe and ensure that if you somehow lose it, you can quickly recover it?

Cloud hosting is the answer. A cost-effective, scalable solution.

Benefits of cloud hosting

If your small business is like many others, you either outsource IT or have a small team managing IT infrastructure. Chances are the IT team is supporting a wide range of resources, and struggling to manage time. The cloud removes this burden from the team, as cloud hosting is fully managed by an offsite team of cloud hosting experts.

Small businesses are also relying on cloud providers for a number of benefits:

  • Secure, redundant data backup services
  • Customizable, high-quality infrastructure
  • Improved efficiency
  • Reliable support
  • Immediate upgrades
  • Mobile accessibility
  • Lower costs

Cost and cash flow are often the most significant benefits to small businesses transitioning to the cloud. With pay-as-you go options, it gives you the opportunity to scale cloud solutions up or down as needed, with no upfront capital expenditures.

Can I roll out a cloud solution piece-by-piece?

If you’re concerned about budget or security in transitioning to the cloud, you can always take an incremental approach. Cloud providers offer the best online storage backup, so converting from onsite tape backups to cloud storage can be a great first step. This will provide time for your confidence to grow in your cloud experiment, and to understand the impacts on your business.

Many cloud hosting subscribers start with a cloud backup solution, then add file sync and sharing, remote desktop and network services as they grow.

Don’t feel you need to migrate to the cloud all in one shot! Take your time to manage your security concerns and to accommodate your budget requirements.
