Shift Your Big Costs with Cloud Computing

Shift Your Big Costs with Cloud Computing

Cloud solutions give businesses the ability to find value in applications that were previously limited by needing to be hosted on-site. If you implement cloud services, your business can take advantage of several benefits that otherwise aren’t possible, including more reliable file storage options.

Here are some of the advantages you can expect to receive from working with a cloud-based storage system.

Cloud Storage is Scalable

Imagine what would happen if you ran out of on-site storage space. You might be able to acquire more, but that doesn’t really help in a pinch. You still have to go out there, order more storage, and implement it. This can be a pain that, in all actuality, is not really worth the effort.

Cloud storage presents an easier alternative where you are charged based on your usage rate. This means that you can achieve sufficient storage without needing to handle any on-site upgrades. Plus, when you consider how much work goes into adding a few hard drives to your infrastructure, you can add that to the difficulty of scaling your data backup solution to accommodate the changes. All in all, it’s easier and more cost-effective to manage these important services through the cloud.

Cloud Storage Can Help You Optimize Costs

Some people compare purchasing their own storage hardware to subscribing to a cloud provider’s storage services and assume that making a one-time purchase will be cheaper than a subscription service. There are other costs to consider when thinking about how the cloud can benefit your organization; it’s not strictly about paying up-front versus the subscription.

Think about the maintenance costs associated with maintaining on-site hardware. You’ll have upkeep, updates, and upgrades to consider, all of which would be incorporated into the monthly cost of a cloud subscription. An in-house solution demands that you do all of this on your own, or hire someone to handle it… either way, you’re looking at time and capital that could be spent elsewhere compared to having the cloud provider handle it all.

Cloud Storage is Secure

Think about what it would be like to maintain a data center, hosting the data of dozens of companies who pay you to keep their information on your infrastructure. Considering what’s at stake if you fail to secure your infrastructure, there’s no way that you would be negligent with maintaining adequate security, and neither are cloud storage providers, as their entire business model relies on having adequate security for their clients’ data.

Cloud Storage is Remote-Friendly

Implementing cloud storage is a great way for a business to open up even more possibilities for mobile and remote work. Files and resources that are located in the cloud can be accessed by employees who have approved mobile devices and applications; unless your network has been pre-configured and built around this, you might run into trouble accessing network-hosted files while out of the office.

By properly utilizing the cloud, your employees can stay productive without being limited by the confines of their offices. The benefits of the cloud can allow for some creative problem-solving and service implementation.
