From affordability to flexibility, here we have rounded up the top benefits of cloud computing for small businesses in Singapore.
According to Wikipedia, Cloud computing “is a type of Internet-based computing that provides shared computer processing resources and data to computers and other devices on demand. It is a model for enabling ubiquitous, on-demand access to a shared pool of configurable computing resources (e.g., computer networks, servers, storage, applications and services), which can be rapidly provisioned and released with minimal management effort.”
In simple words, cloud computing is the practice to store, manage and process data on the virtual servers available on the internet.
A small business lacks budget to hire IT staff and purchase servers and other networking equipment. A cloud computing, on the other hand, provides them cost effective, easy and portable storage option.
Let’s see how…
Accessibility and Flexibility:
The key benefit of cloud computing is the ability to access and save files from all devices in any location, even on the run. Generally, if a file has been saved on your PC, you have to open that particular PC to access the file. On the other hand, cloud computing allows you to access the files from any phone, tablet, laptop or PC.
Most of the businesses choose cloud computing to ensure the security of their data. A loss or misuse of the data may be the biggest threat if you have lost your laptop, mobile or PC. With a cloud computing, these all devices will only be the medium to access the data which also requires a password. Plus, you can replace or upgrade your PC without having hassle to remove the data.
Cloud computing is an affordable and budget way to manage your data. You don’t need to purchase new servers or hire data and networking staff. All you need to opt for the packages suitable for your requirements and budget as well. If your business expands and you need more space, you can switch to the other package accordingly.
Back Up for Emergency:
It can’t be denied that your data is vulnerable to hacking, accidental deletion and natural disaster. In this scenario, cloud computing comes handy. It is the great way to recover your lost data.
No matter what your business is, cloud computing is a game changer that helps you operating your IT functions smoothly with minimal downtimes.
