Cloud services allow small businesses access to enterprise-level infrastructure without having to implement costly hardware and software in-house. Instead, businesses are able to lease the hardware, software, or services needed from a provider at an affordable rate. The provider takes care of the maintenance & upkeep of all those back end systems while you keep your focus on your business. For small to medium sized businesses this is a growing trend as most companies of that size need a modern setup that is more affordable and reliable.
All systems in the cloud or a hybrid solution?
Some business would prefer to keep part of their systems maintained in-house. A hybrid solution means that some services are hosted externally, while others are managed with hardware kept in-house. Another scenario would be to have identical services setup in both locations for redundancy. In this example if your business is storing critical data in the cloud, it would be prudent to make sure that data is replicated to local storage devices in the event that the cloud service becomes unavailable. After analyzing your company’s structure we can help you determine which is best for you.
