The best way to future-proof your business in the cloud
Chances are, you’ve probably been considering moving your business to the cloud for a little while. If you’re using cloud services like Office 365 for productivity, Sage or QuickBooks for accounting, or a file transfer service like Dropbox, you’re already hosting business data in trusted third-party data centres.
Small to medium-sized businesses tend to host their critical data in small business servers, usually on-site within the company’s office. But if you’re looking to scale your business or need more flexibility, moving to a Cloud Server is a great way to future-proof your business.
Data remains yours, always
When you store data in the cloud, there’s a risk that your data could be mixed in with other businesses. But with Cloud Server, that doesn’t happen. You rent a self-contained virtual server to store your data. It’s like renting storage space for your furniture and possessions; you keep the key and it remains private to you, while it’s manned 24/7 by physical and virtual security.
The benefits of using Cloud Server
Choosing the best option
If you’d prefer to move your data to the cloud in stages, you can always choose a hybrid option. Critical data that you’d prefer to keep on-site remains on your physical server, while data that needs to be running 24/7 – like a website – to avoid downtime can shift to a Cloud Server.
