Don’t be afraid of the cloud

Pro­fes­sional Arti­cle

Many orga­ni­za­tions are leery of stor­ing sen­si­tive cor­po­rate data online with a cloud ser­vice, largely for secu­rity rea­sons. But there’s much to be said for cloud stor­age. Here are the five main ben­e­fits.

Cloud ser­vices – sim­ple, scal­able and secure

Small and medium-​sized enter­prises in par­tic­u­lar can reap count­less ben­e­fits and oppor­tu­ni­ties from cloud ser­vices:

  • Ease of use and avail­abil­ity. With a cloud ser­vice, you can access data over an inter­face even if you’re at an exter­nal site. Orga­ni­za­tions can assign user per­mis­sions based on their unique require­ments.
  • Lower cost. Orga­ni­za­tions don’t have to spend nearly as much on in-​house IT staff or equip­ment.
  • Highly scal­able. When boom­ing busi­ness calls for addi­tional IT resources, new capac­ity can be brought online quickly and eas­ily.
  • Sus­tain­able. Cloud ser­vices dove­tail per­fectly with green IT objec­tives. The data cen­ters are shared by many cus­tomers, which increases capac­ity uti­liza­tion. They can also be specif­i­cally built at sites that require less cool­ing.
  • Always state-​of-​the-​art – even in secu­rity. Cloud providers adopt changes in server tech­nol­ogy faster than indi­vid­ual orga­ni­za­tions. That keeps secu­rity up-​to-​date.
