Saving money doesn’t have to mean cut backs
Businesses are increasingly under financial pressure as gas and electricity bills rise, wages continue to increase, and supply chains slow internationally. Looking to make some smart financial savings within your business? Consider moving data storage to the cloud over purchasing and maintaining an in-house system.
A recent study found that it can be up to 40% more cost-effective for small and medium sized businesses to use a third-party cloud platform rather than maintaining their own in-house system.
How cloud storage works
Cloud storage works by storing data on remote servers, here it can be maintained, managed, backed up and accessed remotely. Data stored in the cloud is accessible by any device (phone, laptop, desktop) at any time from anywhere, as long as permissions are in place and you have an internet connection.
Despite its accessibility, data stored via the cloud is extremely safe and secure, with your data backed-up to multiple servers in multiple locations.
Why cloud storage works for businesses
Moving your business storage to the cloud eliminates the cost of hardware, its maintenance and future upgrades, as well as the associated employee salaries for time required to keep your data safe and server running.
With cloud storage you can also alter your storage capacity as and when you need to, removing the risk of paying for storage you simply don’t need (avoiding further unnecessary spend), or running out of storage space for your data needs.
