Six Reasons SMBs are Switching to Cloud Computing

Cloud-based backup and disaster recovery is now more accurate and efficient. 

Cloud computing is virtually-based (independent of the need for hardware), and rather than picking and choosing individual data files for backup, the entire virtual server is copied and backed up to an offsite data center. This dramatically reduces recovery time because it eliminates the need to reload each component of the server, such as the operating system, applications, and patches. 

Crypto cloud computing offers convenience and security.  

Crypto cloud computing is a new, secure, cloud computing architecture that provides the unique opportunity to marry data sharing and privacy, using encryption techniques. The convenience of cloud computing is obvious, but network security risks can become a problem unless information is encrypted. Cryptography in the cloud solves this threat without delaying the speed of information exchange.  

Cloud services lessen the risk associated with Bring Your Own Device (BYOD).  

Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) is a business trend that empowers workforces to use personal devices. Everybody works a little bit differently, and BYOD can improve productivity while simultaneously reducing costs. Cloud computing mitigates security concerns that arise from this trend.  

Paying only for what you use makes more financial sense.  

In most cases, if a company isn’t growing it’s dying, thus making scalability an integrated must-have in your business strategy. The cost of breaking infrastructure barriers can be unbearable to a smaller company trying to tap into tough markets. Cloud-based services give you access to your technology assets through a single click, rather than the cost of purchasing hundreds of licenses and then taking the time to install new software onto hundreds of machines. You can pay for what you need, no more, no less, and simplify software upgrades across the company.  

Agility is necessary to compete in the current market.  

Cloud computing improves company processes to adopt and leverage new software. In this increasingly digital age, the ability to adapt to evolving technologies is an element that helps keep businesses competitive.
