Innovare can help your business become more secure, reliable, and productive with cloud computing solutions that reduce your IT overhead and effort.
What is Cloud Computing?
There are many definitions and types of public cloud computing, but they all commonly include accessing and using computer hardware and software over a network (typically the Internet) on an infrastructure other than your own.
Rather than installing, running and maintaining computing resources on stand-alone machines in-house, companies and individuals access and use cloud computing solutions and software applications “in the cloud” from desktops, laptops, or mobile devices through the Internet.
Hosted applications, Exchange email, cloud backup and off-site data storage are all examples of cloud computing solutions. Cloud Computing is the environmentally friendly, green IT solution that enables secure remote access, instant upgrades, and high availability for your office staff and remote workers from anywhere they have Internet access.
Software-as-a-Service, or SaaS, is a common type of application hosted in the cloud. SaaS is software accessed using a web browser or mobile application instead of downloading and installing on your computer.
Other than user-specific application settings, one does not have complete control of these applications. This lack of control and inability to make code changes is not acceptable to some, but is preferable to many SaaS cloud solution users who are happy to let the software vendor be responsible for bug fixes and software updates.
Why Migrate to the Cloud?
Traditionally, companies have carried the burden of acquisition and maintenance of the hardware, software and networking systems it takes to run their software applications internally. Cloud computing is a much more flexible and less capital-intensive solution that reduces the burden on corporate IT organizations.
Cloud computing allows firms to outsource their computing needs and focus on their customers’ solutions. Depending on the need, there are various levels of cloud computing service that companies can take advantage of.
Cloud computing services are increasingly being adopted by small and medium sized businesses (SMBs) due to their lower set-up and maintenance costs, popularity with employees, nearly automatic setup and simple installation.
In fact, more than half of SMBs are currently using cloud computing solutions ranging from document sharing tools like Google Docs to web-hosted email and CRM databases like Salesforce.
Cloud-based data backup is seeing a slower adoption rate at 25%, but it’s still growing year after year and will likely become more commonly utilized as the convenience and availability of cloud-based services increases.
If you aren’t familiar with cloud computing solutions, now is the time to consider them for your business. Using cloud computing solutions, Innovare can reduce your IT burden and help your business become more secure, reliable, and productive.
