Reap the benefits of cloud computing for your business (image credit: iStock/hylendrahoode)

Cloud computing is a process that has truly taken flight in recent years, with businesses up and down the country embracing the flexible nature of this method of data management.

Not all businesses are aware of the many advantages that cloud computing can provide though, so here we're offering a short guide to what this form of information infrastructure can deliver.

Improved file sharing

One of the key benefits of cloud computing lies in the fact that files can all be stored in folders that can be accessed by all those that need to.

Gone are the days when individuals would need to manually email attachments or work documents to others in their business; in a cloud environment, files can be shared at the click of a button, while multiple people can view and amend documents they have access to in real-time.

Increased storage space

Cloud-based systems can be as large or small as you require to meet your business needs. This means there is no need to invest in additional storage capacity and the system can shrink or grow to optimise its performance.

There are no physical restrictions on data storage due to the nature of the virtual cloud, which means companies can fully utilise cloud systems no matter what their storage requirements may be.

Reduced IT expenditure

The fact that many cloud computing providers offer off-site data storage to businesses means there is less of a need for individual firms to operate their own servers, thereby reducing the cost of maintenance for IT departments.

Furthermore, by contracting a cloud service provider to oversee the upkeep of these systems, upgrades and enhancements to the network will be handled by a third party and therefore no further costs should be incurred by the user themselves.

Increased flexibility for staff

We touched upon the increased shareability of cloud documents earlier, but in addition to this, the fact that the cloud offers access to data no matter the location of the user means that staff can retain access to files wherever they are working from.

Whether based in the office, at home or on the go, access to data will always be fully available.

Enhanced disaster recovery

Finally, a key aspect of cloud computing that all those interested in this type of network solution should consider is the fact that disaster recovery can be made far simpler when files are accessible from multiple locations.

Businesses wishing to safeguard sensitive and important data can invest in a cloud computing solution safe in the knowledge that should one or even several of their premises fall prey to disaster, the information that is needed to ensure operations can continue or get back up and running as quickly as possible will be easily on hand.
