VBS IT Services


The cloud is definitely not a fad but a mainstream corporate computing model and many businesses are moving to the cloud and the benefits are compelling. You may ask yourself should we take the leap to the cloud? Should we not? The question should be really whether it is right for your business. There are many things you need to consider before taking the plunge and moving your business to the cloud.

Below are the top reasons why you should be considering the cloud:

  • Cost
    Moving to the cloud can provide significant cost savings. Local infrastructure maintenance costs will decrease as there will be a decrease in rack space, power usage, IT requirements, etc. These savings can be invaluable for a small business as your business will be doing more with less.
  • Scalability
    The cloud is highly scalable. Resources and employees can be added or removed to and from the network anytime very easily and quickly and without any large costs. Also, by using only what you need when you need it, creates a cost savings.
  • Security
    Cloud services tend to be incredibly secure usually more so than on-premise servers. You can go to sleep at night knowing that cloud providers that are in compliance must meet certain stringent requirements for monitoring and security, making sure you have enterprise level protection.
  • Business Continuity
    A recent study found that businesses which use the cloud, were able to resolve issues 4 times faster than businesses that didn’t use the cloud. The cloud can offer many businesses complete failover redundancy and can take care of backups and disaster recovery in one solution, very quickly.
  • Mobility
    One of the most appealing aspects and benefits of cloud computing is the ability for workers to access work related documents and cloud applications anytime and anywhere. Living in a mobile world this is not only convenient but increases productivity.
