Cloud Services’ Popularity among Small Businesses: Major Factors
December 11, 2012
Recently it’s been found that around 80% of private businesses who are involved in foreign trade are small in size and startups. Many of these are growing or looking to expand their company by choosing innovative solutions to provide better services to their customers. Cloud computing can be a viable option for the startup companies that can boost their business productivity.
The foremost reason to choose a cloud management service is to get the benefits of big business infrastructure. In the recent past, servers were configured in the office, which was troublesome and required a lot of resources like expensive Hardware, faster processors, dedicated server administrators and 365×24×7 internet connection. To avoid such headaches, it is beneficial to opt for cloud based computing power for more productivity at lower budget.
As the servers are accessed remotely, it offers better flexibility than traditional IT infrastructures. The administrators can access the remote servers from anywhere by using various mobile devices. This flexibility in accessing the servers saves time, money and also helps to fix issues immediately when required.
Cloud server monitoring also facilitates better collaboration with the clients. It enables the company to share specific client related issues with other departments, in order to solve the problem. Taking notes, sharing client files, and working together to solve problem has become easier than before.
Data security is one of the most important reasons to use cloud management services. The remote infrastructures provided by cloud service consider clients ‘data security’ as their top priority. Many people wrongly assume that cloud monitoring is less secure than native servers. Due to this reason cloud server monitoring are managed by IT professionals who stress themselves to keep their data safe and out of the reach of hackers. But choosing cloud services can reduce these threats and the business can acquire various legal requirements regarding the security of data.
