Cloud services refers to storing and accessing data over the Internet instead of or in addition to your local computer or network. Instead of purchasing hardware and software for your office, you can use the cloud to put your programs on a highly secure "super-server" online. This means that you can work and collaborate from anywhere in the world you have Internet access.Should I Move My Business to the Cloud?
The majority of the software applications you use are likely now available in the cloud. This means that you don't have to install them on your server -- you simply access the software on a pay-as-you-go model for only the features you use, allowing you to have the same functionality at a fraction of the cost, and without long-term commitments. Cloud services can therefore possibly save you quite a bit of money on software, hardware, upgrades and services.
It is quickly becoming unnecessary for many businesses to purchase and maintain a server. Companies can now host their applications, e-mail and other functions in the cloud.Am I a Good Candidate for Cloud Services?
