Cloud adoption is rapidly maturing in Australia; with organisations forecast to spend around $5.6 billion on public cloud services in 2019. While moving your business to the cloud can offer significant savings, it is not the only reason why companies are moving their data to the cloud.
Providing you have an internet connection, using the cloud can help employees be more flexible with authorised access to company data at any time and in any location.
Cloud computing is the practice of using a network of remote servers hosted on the Internet to store, manage, and process data, rather than a local server or a personal computer.
Here are a few reasons why businesses are opting for a cloud based solution.
By moving to cloud computing you can save a substantial amount of money through reducing the purchasing of equipment, infrastructure and software. A cloud service requires a lower investment and lower overall costs than on premise solutions.
In the event of a disaster, having your data backed up is crucial.
With your data in the cloud, it is much easier to back it up and restore than keeping it on a physical device.
With cloud computing you can easily upscale or downscale your resources to accommodate your business requirements, for example, adding new employees or increasing your data storage.
Cloud computing gives your business the resources to share and communicate more effectively as it allows greater collaboration between employees, and allows multiple users to share and work on projects all at the same time.
