Over time, businesses need to evolve to meet and exceed the growing demands of their industries while also working hard to maintain a strong competitive edge. An essential part of that evolution involves migrating your on-premise IT solutions to a remote and more secure network such as the Microsoft cloud. There’s no doubt that establishing a strong on-premise IT infrastructure and data storing and sharing network takes a lot of financial investment. And while this may have been a sound investment a decade ago, today it’s considered less than ideal in terms of providing the necessary network security that allows you to safely store and share sensitive data. If you’re nervous about making the switch, hiring professional cloud consulting services in Mississauga and other parts of the GTA is an excellent solution.
What Is the Cloud?
Cloud computing is a fast, innovative, and flexible way to deliver computing services over the Internet (“the cloud”). These computing services include servers, storage, databases, networking, software, analytics, and intelligence. One of the benefits of cloud computing is that you only need to pay for the cloud services you use, which helps to lower your operating costs, run your infrastructure more efficiently, and scale as your business needs change.
What Are the Benefits of Migrating to the Microsoft Cloud?
What if you already have an on-premise IT infrastructure set up? What’s the point of switching to the cloud and, more importantly, how can it help you cut down costs while also helping you scale your business? The answers to these questions lie in the proven benefits of switching to the cloud system.
Disaster Recovery and Backup
The Microsoft cloud system provides round-the-clock monitoring, data storage backup, and recovery response times in the event that security threats present themselves. Even if you lose all connectivity due to a natural disaster or electrical blackout, all of your sensitive data will be backed up on the cloud and easily accessible once your network is up and running again.
Technology moves fast. Switching to a cloud system allows you to save money on maintaining, updating, and purchasing on-premise network hardware and hiring a full-time in-house IT staff.
Improved System Security and Privacy
Cloud-based ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) solutions and business-related data can be stored in highly secure data centers that are monitored regularly by IT specialists.
Easy Data Access
Switching to a cloud system allows you to access your business data remotely, whereas the on-premise system limits you to only onsite data access. This isn’t ideal when you’re trying to run a business and need to meet with clients or go on a business trip.
Easy File Sharing Capabilities and Collaboration
Accessing and sharing files with coworkers or employees has never been easier. With the Microsoft cloud system, you can share files from remote locations through secure network access checkpoints and collaborate on projects.
Scalability, Reliability, No Need to Manage IT Resources
Since the Cloud operates remotely from your physical business location, you can focus on growing your business and saving money on managing on-premise IT solutions.
