Technology brings with it both advantages and disadvantages. With all the buzz surrounding the cloud, desktop virtualization, and other technologies, it can be hard to know how these technologies can help a small business. Below we’ve put together a few ways that cloud computing can significantly help growing small businesses.
- Improving Data Security – Small businesses are often weary of moving data to the cloud because of security reasons, but the reality is that cloud storage is usually much more secure than a small business computer network. Most small business networks are not encrypted, whereas cloud services protect your data through encryption.
- Recovering from Data Loss – Small businesses typically are not very savvy when it comes to backups and data recovery. By utilizing cloud services, companies can be back up and running after any type of data loss. Don’t let a severe data loss or natural disaster spell the end of business for your company.
- Reduced Maintenance and Upgrades – Moving your small business to the cloud can also mean less maintenance and upgrades. Moving most of your software and data to the cloud allows updates to be run completely automatically by cloud providers, which frees up more time for you to focus on building your business.
