On-site/off-site data centres can cost 30-50% more than the cloud
A cloud transformation and migration consultant works hard to help transfer businesses of all shapes and sizes over to the cloud. One of the biggest challenges many businesses face when switching to the cloud is keeping their data safe and secure. This is why cloud consultants are often brought in to ensure a safe transfer process.
Whilst many business owners will agree that being able to work remotely is one of the biggest advantages of the cloud, there are also a few other benefits that you need to know about.
Here are the 3 main reasons why businesses have migrated over to the cloud this year:
1. Increased Data Agility
Having all your data stored securely on the cloud increases your data agility as it allows you to share, collaborate, and access data among your coworkers from anywhere at any time. It’s also easier to recover data should it ever be accidentally removed. This means your team can work on the same document without multiple versions being passed around. Cloud solutions can also support access to data analytics and insights for more accessible analysis.
2. Increased Security
All cloud service providers must be GDPR compliant to adhere to EU data protection standards. Many also have robust security and privacy frameworks in place. At Intrasource, we are partnered with world-class technology vendors such as Microsoft, so you can rest assured that you will receive the highest level of security with your business cloud service. Security should never be a concern with our advanced cyber security service, offering you 24/7 monitoring and threat detection.
3. Ability to Scale & Cost Savings
Cloud solutions can save you huge amounts of money compared to hiring a hosting company. On-site/off-site data centres can cost 30-50% more than the cloud. Not only is switching to the cloud cheaper but your storage space can also be increased as and when your business grows. There’s never a one size fits all solution to integrating into the cloud but there is always the ability to scale.
If you’re looking to switch to the cloud some strategy questions you need to ask are:
How much data do you have?
How much data does the business intend to use?
Are you going to have to keep some workloads on the premises?
Does your current IT infrastructure need modernising?
