Get your head — and your assets — into the cloud
What if you could have a Fortune 500 IT infrastructure on a small business IT budget? You can with cloud computing services from Corporate Network Services.
What cloud computing means for your business
Cloud computing is Internet-based computing, whereby shared resources, software and information are provided to computers and other devices on demand, like a public utility. What this means is that your organization leases space and power on someone else’s computer systems. You have all the rights and responsibilities of owning that space, but, ultimately, someone else is responsible for maintaining the hardware and software necessary to keep the system running. You control how much space you lease. You can even share space with another company, and anything you do with an on-site server can be done with a virtual server in the “cloud.”
Sound scary? It is likely that you are already using an entry-level cloud service for email spam prevention. Theoretically, you could go to the other extreme and migrate all of your servers to an Internet-based cloud environment. You could then use “dumb” terminals to access your cloud-based resources. Instead of having expensive servers and workstations, you pay a single monthly fee for your entire setup.
The cloud environment offers a variety of benefits:
- There is no data in your offices — it’s all on the Internet
- There are no backups to send away — it’s all handled by the cloud provider
- There are no remote connectivity issues — it is ALL remote connectivity
Additional features of cloud computing
- Increased business continuity and reduced downtime
- Increased data accessibility
- Protection against component failure, fire, natural disasters and more
- Increased staff productivity
With cloud computing, you could be on your home computer and access your work desktop — just as if you were sitting at your desk. Your company’s assets would be more secure and your employees more productive. Believe it or not, this IS the future of computing, and Corporate Network Services is working toward making it a reality for our customers.
