When you’ve spent the time and money creating a custom application, it can be a big decision to move it over to the cloud, and one that you need to put a lot of thought...
Cloud technology is by no means anything particularly new in the business world, however it’s becoming more and more prevalent for businesses looking for ways to improve and modernise their IT services.
Whilst it can be a great way for your business to save money when it comes to data usage and storage, the benefits go much deeper than this.
One of the key advantages that many companies have taken advantage of - especially over the past year - is the ability to improve collaboration and accessibility between teams and offices spread throughout different locations. With your servers hosted remotely, information can be accessed instantly, providing seamless online working environments and allowing staff the flexibility of working anywhere with an internet connection.
Although the security of your data is managed in an entirely different way to traditional, onsite data centres, there is an added benefit of almost guaranteed business continuity should there be a power failure or other crisis which would have usually brought your servers down. This allows you to continue your business as usual with no obvious downtime or lack of productivity.
With so many benefits to using cloud storage, it’s no wonder so many are choosing to begin the migration process - but where should you start?
We’ve written an article which takes you through the nuances of this type of technology and how you can best prepare yourself for a well-planned and stress-free experience.
