Cloud Computing Services for Your WorkspaceWhat is the cloud? What will the cloud do for my business? Is my business currently in the cloud? These are common questions you may ask yourself when considering your cloud forecast. The term cloud computing is ubiquitous and can be misleading. Cloud computing is the process of storing/accessing data and applications from a giant white cumulonimbus. What makes cloud computing so different from a traditional model of data transfer and storage is the internet. Instead of practicing data management on your computer’s hard drive, data funnels up to the cloud and stays there until you access it again.
Common Cloud Computing Services
Your environment may already be working in the cloud. Cloud computing is everywhere. Most likely applications you use for business continuity already function with data sync practices. This means access to everything you’re working on, available online with any device just by logging in through a client. Data synced applications will also have these files available to local drive on your PC. Microsoft 365 uses a cloud computing storage called OneDrive, which hosts data offline and in the cloud. Microsoft also offers their office suite online without installing anything onto your computer.
Leveraging your Cloud Computing network
Blazing into the cloud frenzy and migrating your infrastructure takes time. There is a range of factors you need to consider before shifting over to cloud platforms for productivity. The best cloud strategies start with a plan. Hiring a cloud service provider with the cloud, it is possible to get the benefits of a secure, expert managed data center without the costs required to purchase and run your own equipment. All of your servers and solutions would be housed within a ForeSite data center, reducing the cost of management and maintenance. Cloud migration solutions must be refactored before making a decision into a hosted environment. Learn more about virtualized servers and cloud hosted technologies.
