The Benefits of Cloud Hosting in a Small Businesses Part 2

Hosting your data in the cloud has become business-as-usual for most companies, but understandably there are still some business owners out there who maintain the status quo of keeping everything in-house and on their own physical server. Whether this is because you do not fully trust digital technology or simply feel your business is too small for the cloud or doesn’t need it – read on to see why cloud hosting is the future and what it can do for your business, however big or small.

Let’s have a look at some more benefits you’ll get by choosing cloud hosting.

Scalability: Very often, smaller businesses have growing or fluctuating bandwidth demands; cloud hosting offers scalability so you can increase or decrease your capacity as your needs fluctuate.

Automatic and instant software upgrades: Instead of having a physical server that requires a secure, temperature-controlled server room, with cloud hosting the server is off-site and out of mind. You no longer have to maintain and manage the server or the software on it – with the server in the cloud, software can be updated and rolled out by your service provider, saving you time and effort.

Strategix cloud hosting solutions provides several attractive benefits for your company by enabling you to consume computer resources as a utility – just like electricity – rather than having to build and maintain IT infrastructures on-premise.  Extending into the cloud should expand your options without adding complexity allowing you to meet changing business needs with greater flexibility.

Document control: Cloud hosting eliminates the need to send documents back and forth as email attachments. In the cloud, documents are stored in a central place allowing easy and instant access. Every version of a document is backed up, so changes can be easily tracked.

Security: Basically your data couldn’t be safer anywhere else – cloud hosting ensures that back-ups are done regularly and the data is stored in secure servers, so even if you experience the loss of a device, the data inside as well as your software systems can instantly be retrieved from the cloud and accessed on another device.

Environmentally friendly: Because you need less hardware and the facilities to maintain it, you use less electricity which reduces your carbon footprint.
