Every now and then technology undergoes a radical sea change. The inherent changeability of technology means that it’s able to meet the demands of the modern day, very closely. It’s completely unwise to assume that technology has ever stopped changing, and it will continue to evolve ad infinitude for as long as humans are using it.
Arguably, the most recent, and important for a long time, evolution in technology is the introduction of the cloud. Cloud computing can be summed up as follows: rather than storing data “in house” you can store data, software, etc, in the cloud. You probably already use the cloud to access your e-mail through services like Hotmail and Gmail.
Why Does The Cloud Work?
The cloud can deliver all sorts of advantages to your business. On the one hand, it allows you to store your data elsewhere, i.e. outside of your business. In fact, the data will possibly be stored in the Nevada desert, on huge servers.
Online data backup on the cloud is very secure. Your data will be encrypted, and so, perhaps a little counter intuitively, relinquishing some control over your data could make it more secure. You’ll also save money, as your data becomes much easier to back up and access.
If you need help taking advantage of the cloud then you can contact IT support in Glasgow. Accessing and implementing cloud services is now a key aspect of IT support.
