Why and How to Connect to the Cloud

What is the Cloud?

‘The cloud’ is just a shorthand term for ‘cloud computing’, which itself refers to the idea of using someone else’s computers over the Internet for things we previously used our own for like storing data and running programs. Connecting your private network to the cloud allows you to take advantage of these remote services.

What are Cloud Benefits?

Focus: Outsourcing the stress of managing a local network allows you to focus on other areas of your business.

Scalability: The cloud allows you to quickly and easily scale up as your business needs grow.

Flexibility: Accessing your network remotely means you and your employees can work from anywhere.

Data Security: A breach at your premises can lead to compromised data security if someone steals your laptops or computers. If your data is on the cloud, you can delete any confidential information remotely or move it to a different account.

Reliability: Your network will be safe and stable, maintained by experts at companies like Amazon, Microsoft or Google.

Cost: Cloud connectivity can reduce the costs of maintaining your own infrastructure whilst improving your IT services.

Who Is This For?

Large Companies: Connecting your private network to the cloud can reduce the need for costly internal IT infrastructure and bring your business into the 21st Century.

SMEs: Moving to the cloud means you can focus on providing quality services to your customers without needing to worry about IT.

Start-ups: Cloud connectivity allows you to scale as you grow, maintain a modern, flexible working environment and focus on developing your product and growing your business.

How Can I Do It?

Before connecting your private network to the cloud some things need to be sorted such as: evaluating performance and security requirements, choosing a cloud provider, calculating costs and making necessary organisational changes.

After this has been dealt with, interoperability, data and application portability, data integrity and security, and business continuity all need to be assessed.

Every cloud migration is different and navigating it by yourself can be costly and stressful. Allowing experts like those at Service Team IT to handle it will help you reap the benefits of cloud connectivity without having to deal with the technical side of things.
