Add flexibility and spread the cost of your business IT
Is it time for your company to look beyond traditional in-house IT systems? Cloud computing means you access IT resources over the internet whenever you need them.
For instance, instead of storing your customer database on your premises, you log in to it over the internet. All it means is that your database is stored on a server that’s located somewhere else.
It’s easiest to think of it as another service you pay for as you use it. Like electricity, gas or your telephone line, it’s simply there when you need it.
Simple monthly cost, no capital expenditure.
You pay a monthly fee for cloud services. There’s no need to invest in extra equipment, like a pricey server, so it’s an attractive way to upgrade without a large one-off expense.
It never goes out of date.
Cloud services include ongoing updates to hardware and software, so you’ll get access to new features as and when they become available. No more should-we-shouldn’t-we dilemma when considering new software.
Less in-house maintenance to worry about.
Moving to the cloud means relying less on IT equipment on your premises. And that means there’s less to maintain, support and worry about going wrong. Your cloud provider (that’s us!) takes care of it all.
Grows easily with your business.
Cloud computing scales well. This means that as your business takes on new people or moves into new areas, it’s really easy to provide the IT you need. You don’t have to delve into your server settings or buy expensive software.
Only pay for what you use.
Because cloud computing scales well, and is usually priced on a per-user basis, you only need to pay for the resources you actually use. It’s not like buying software for 20 users, but then only having 15 people use it.
Take it one step at a time.
Cloud computing isn’t all-or-nothing. You can move your whole company to a service like Cloud Desktop
if you want. But you don’t have to. You can dip a toe in with Cloud Backup
or Cloud Storage
, and see how the cloud goes for you.
Mobile working is easier.
Because the cloud puts some of your business IT resources in a remote location, there’s no difference between accessing them from your office and accessing them from your home. Or a client’s office. Or wherever.
Safe, secure and worry-free.
Using the cloud means placing some of your business data in the hands of a supplier like Yorkshire Cloud. But choose your supplier carefully, and they’ll take excellent care of it – because that’s what they’re good at.
