WHAT IT IS AND WHY YOU NEED IT
There’s a lot of information swirling around about the cloud. But you haven’t the foggiest idea what it is. You’re not alone. Actually, most small businesses aren’t utilizing cloud business tools to the fullest extent. The benefits are numerous: increased efficiency, peace of mind, affordability – just to name a few. Read on to get a better understanding.
WHAT IS THE CLOUD?
The “cloud” or “cloud computing” are tech-industry terms for information that’s sent to data centers for safe keeping while remaining accessible to you in real time. Instead of backing up your photos, music or business documents to external hard drives or flash drives, cloud backup sends your data to a secure, offsite storage facility. You can access your files anytime, anywhere while they remain protected from fire, flood, theft or other data disasters.
DO I REALLY NEED IT?
The long and short of it is yes. Even if you’re backing up your files already, it might not be happening as often as it should. If you want to keep your business IN business, backing up once a week isn’t enough.
IS IT SAFE?
Well, let’s just say that not using the cloud is the equivalent of keeping your money in your mattress. Storing your data in a professionally managed data center means it is given the proper TLC and attention it needs. If you’re worried about prying eyes, you don’t need to be. Your files are encrypted before they leave your computer and stay encrypted on our servers.
WON’T IT COST A LOT?
When you consider what downtime or data loss could mean to your business, the small monthly fee is a cheap insurance premium.
