The best thing about utilizing Cloud Computing in your business is that you are renting a service rather than outright purchasing a specific product or service. Much like any basic utility service provider, you are only required to pay for what you use and all of the complex technical details are taken care of by the applications suppliers. Cloud Computing allows you to store all of your most essential data and files in the “Cloud”, and all are accessible from any device, anywhere in the world to ensure your company remains compliant and secure. By providing small business owners unbeatable managed IT services we can focus our energy as a service provider on the accessibility, flexibility, security, cost, time, energy consumption, competitiveness and disaster recovery capabilities of your business. We can ensure your business is running at its fullest capacity at all times so you can focus on what’s most important to you and your company.

Accessibility and flexibility

The most important advantage businesses obtain when utilizing Cloud Computing is the ability to access, modify and save files anytime, anywhere, and from any device. In most cases, files or documents that have been saved or edited on a personal computer cannot be accessed on other devices, which can be rather constricting when it comes to your companies ability to progress further in your respective industry. Cloud Computing removes these harsh restrictions, and allow you to have unlimited access to all your most vital and sensitive files or information from any phone, tablet, laptop or computer. As long as there remains a secure and stable Internet connection, you are free to use any of the listed devices to access and work on your files and data.

You can also use Cloud Computing to share files with other team members and co-workers. Collaboration is simple with Simplistic IT Services. With everything all in one central location it’s easy for your employees to all access the same files at any given time, all over the world. The Cloud provides much needed flexibility and accessibility for businesses that rely on collaboration or other unified efforts, resulting in a steady and healthy increase in productivity, time-management, and competitiveness.

Security

By relying on hard copies or locally stored data through the use of a laptop, tablet, or other mobile device, your information can become vulnerable to theft or unauthorized access. With the use of Cloud Computing, your device is merely window through which you access and work on your applications, without actually keeping the copies on your own, easily penetrated, hard drive. A simple user name and password is all you will need to get into the Cloud where your data is stored, but for the more sinisterly intended, the information is unreachable in your own personal cyber fortress, keeping you safe and compliant.

Affordability

Don’t you wish everything were set up so that you only pay for what you use? By employing Cloud Computing into your business, you can be sure that whether your business expands or contracts within the economic market, you will only ever be responsible for what you use. As your business expands and you require more, you are free to pay for more, and if you require less, you can easily pay for less. Flexible rates ensure that use of the Cloud is affordable to all business owners looking for greater protection and security, while also actively working to safeguard your compliancy through the use of extensive safety procedures. There’s no urgency to purchase costly software and hardware that you will rarely use when you can simply pick and choose what you need, when you need it with Cloud Computing.

Back-up in case of emergency

Right now as multiple naturally occurring disasters wreck havoc on our country, the importance of reliable back-ups are relevant now more than ever to ensuring the longevity of your business. No matter what happens to your devices, whether natural or malicious, the loss of data from being unprepared or not appropriately protected can result in severe consequences that can even claim the life of your company. With Cloud Computing you can see a noticeable difference in data recovery times as they are retrieved nearly four times faster when compared to those not taking advantage of these services.

Types of Cloud Computing

Public Cloud

This type of Cloud Computing is ideal for businesses that want to focus more on cost efficiency and ease of use. There are no wasted resources because you will be given only what you need, meaning you only pay for what you need. Many businesses prefer a public Cloud because of how easy it is to install and how affordable it is to those operating within a tight budget. Since the service provider has everything covered for you, you no longer have to worry about investing in hardware, applications, or bandwidth costs.

Private Cloud

As the name implies these Clouds are privately managed by specific companies or organizations. All in all, the benefits are nearly the same as those from a public Cloud, except in regards to ownership. Costs can be slightly different considering the company has to reorganize its resources to pay for things like the salaries of personnel assigned to manage the Cloud. Some choose to create dedicated departments or divisions to spearhead the efforts, whiles others outsource to managed IT service providers like Simplistic IT Services.

Hybrid

Like you would expect, this service combines features from both the public and private Cloud. It involves the supervision and preservation efforts of both internal and external providers, meaning that aside from those employed by the business, third party service providers also provide vital assistance in maintaining your Cloud capabilities. This type of Cloud Computing tends to be the preferred option for many businesses due to its flexibility and affordability.

Another method to utilizing Hybrid Cloud Computing is to take advantage of a process known as “Cloud bursting”. This is when an application or resource is allowed to run through the private Cloud initially, but when capacity must be increased, it will “burst” into a public Cloud. With Hybrid Cloud Computing you still only pay for what you use, so no matter when you might need a little extra space up in space for your documents and files, you can be sure you are never being bamboozled by outrageous and unexpected costs.
