Why business cloud computing is a must

cloud computing

Covid-19 pandemic has proven that the future of work has arrived, and with it, growing demand for remote solutions.  The main components of Remote Solutions are the Internet, business cloud computing, and VoIP. 

Businesses of all sizes, geographies, and industries are turning to cloud services. Both public and private cloud adoption have increased in the last few years. Factors behind this change include things like lower operating costs, improved time to market, better collaboration, and increased flexibility.

Cloud computing is the use of computing resources (hardware and software) that are delivered as a service over the internet via a pay-per-use subscription fee model. Some of the examples of cloud services are: Hosted servers (Azure & Amazon Web Services), Hosted Exchange (Office 365), Online backup (Datto), SharePoint, CRM, Unified Communication VoIP phone systems, and online applications such as accounting (QuickBooks). Simply put, cloud computing is computing based on the internet. By hosting software and databases remotely, the cloud servers free up the memory and computing power of individual computers. Users can securely access cloud services using credentials received from the cloud computing provider.

The cloud is a great way to run a business, especially for small businesses. Cloud can offer so many affordable advantages:

Here’s a list of key benefits any business can expect to achieve when adopting cloud infrastructure:

Efficiency/cost reduction

By using cloud infrastructure, you don’t have to spend huge amounts of money on purchasing and maintaining equipment. Cloud also reduces costs related to downtime. Since downtime is rare in cloud systems, this means you don’t have to spend time and money on fixing potential issues related to downtime.

Data security

Cloud offers many advanced security features that guarantee that data is securely stored and handled. Cloud storage providers implement baseline protections for their platforms. The data they process, such as authentication, access control, and encryption.


Scalability is probably the greatest advantage of the cloud. It enables businesses to efficiently and quickly scale up/down their departments, according to business demands without having to invest in physical infrastructure. This level of agility can give businesses using cloud computing a real advantage over competitors.


Cloud computing allows mobile access to corporate data via smartphones and devices, which is a great way to ensure that no one is ever out of the loop. Users can get access to their works on the go, 24/7, via any devices of their choice, in any corner of the world as long as they stay connected to the internet. On top of that, all the upgrades and updates are automatically off-sight by the service providers. This saves time and team effort in maintaining the systems, tremendously reducing the IT costs.

Disaster recovery

Data loss is a major concern for all organizations, along with data security. Storing your data in the cloud guarantees that data is always available, even if your equipment like laptops or PCs, can get damage. Cloud-based services provide quick data recovery for all kinds of emergency scenarios — from natural disasters to power outages.

Cloud infrastructure can also help you with loss prevention. If you rely on a traditional on-premises approach, all your data will be stored and backed up locally on office computers. Despite your best efforts, computers can malfunction for various reasons — from malware and viruses to age-related hardware deterioration, to simple user error. But, if you upload your data to the cloud, it remains accessible for any computer with an internet connection, even if something happens to your work computer.

Control & Collaboration

Cloud enables you complete visibility and control over your data. You can easily decide which users have what level of access to what data. This gives you control, but it also streamlines work since staff will easily know what documents are assigned to them. It will also increase and ease collaboration.

Competitive edge

Organizations that adopt cloud enjoy many benefits that cloud offers and its positive impacts on their businesses. Cloud adoption increases every year because it offers access to world-class enterprise technology.  By using a cloud-based solution, businesses can prevent a lot of problems that plague organizations that rely on on-premises infrastructure.
