Into the Cloud
The competitive advantages of taking your business into the cloud are so vast that the entire business world is moving this direction. Cloud computing and utilization of “Infrastructure as a Service” (IaaS) allow companies to be more efficient as they share resources, software, and information with employees – no matter their location or device. Rather than purchasing servers, software, datacenter space or network equipment, CloudWyze customers buy those resources as a fully outsourced service.
Economies of scale combine with scalability, so as companies expand and contract the impact on IT is negligible. Explore below some of the benefits of moving into the Cloud, and call us to discuss how it can help your business.
Mobile Device Happiness
Mobility is the reality for today’s knowledge workers. The expectation is that anyone should be able to access information from anywhere in the world — from our phones, tablets or PCs; Android™, Apple™ or Windows™. Move to the cloud, and your hosted/virtual desktop delivers instant access your computing environment from any device – even a borrowed desktop — at any time. What’s more, it always looks just the way you left it.
And when Information is no longer device-dependent, backups are no longer an issue. Your data, and operating system and software and apps – your entire work environment – are all stored off-site, in an ultra-high, secure facility. Simply acquire a new device, download the app, and access the full suite of software, applications, and data, just the way you left it.
Collaborate and Grow
The beauty of the cloud is that no matter where your employees are physically, they will all use the same workspace in the cloud. No files transferred, no boxes to drop for updates. Everyone is on the same virtual page, and collaborating in one easily accessible location can lead to organizational growth.
Thankfully, having your infrastructure in the cloud also means that employee on-boarding is simply a phone call away. Scalability is one of the biggest advantages of Cloud Computing, because adding another server, or “bursting” when you need greater capabilities for a short period of time, can be accomplished with just a phone call – or on demand. So as your collaboration leads to greater success, scaling and reconfiguring your infrastructure is as easy as a request.
The biggest reason companies of all sizes are moving their infrastructure to the cloud is for increased efficiencies. These efficiencies manifest in direct financial savings, in relief from backing up and restoring data, increased security, and server/system maintenance.
The security benefits alone are enough to justify the move to the cloud. There are a number of services we can provide that most traditional infrastructure deployments could not, due to high cost or complexity. And, CloudWyze data centers are HIPAA and HITECH compliant, with Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) solutions available.
