Cloud Services

Simply put, cloud computing is the delivery of computing services – including servers, storage, databases, networking, software, analytics and intelligence – over the Internet

What is the Cloud?

Where in the past, you would run applications or programs from software downloaded on a computer or server in your building, cloud computing allows you to access the same kinds of applications through the internet.


Cloud computing is revolutionising the way businesses work. It can enhance business growth through increased productivity and efficiency, whilst driving down costs through removal of the need to invest heavily in IT equipment, storage, maintenance, and support.


Small companies can now compete on a global scale, with access to enterprise type IT Services. SMB’s can now undertake computer-intensive analytics, due to dramatically lower costs of entry to the market. Companies with rapid growth now have the flexibility to scale their IT services, proportional to their rate of growth.


The question is … “Is the cloud right for your business and the way it does business?” If it is, then what form should it take?

Benefits to your Business

  • Flexibility

    Cloud-based services are ideal for businesses with growing or fluctuating bandwidth demands. If your needs increase it’s easy to scale up your cloud capacity, drawing on the service’s remote servers. Likewise, if you need to scale down again, the flexibility is built into the service

  • work from anywhere

    With cloud computing, if you’ve got an internet connection you can be at work. And with most cloud services offering mobile apps, you’re not restricted by which device you’ve got to hand

  • costs

    Cloud computing cuts out the high cost of hardware. You simply pay as you go and enjoy a subscription-based model

  • security

    Lost laptops are a hugely expensive business problem.  And potentially greater than the loss of an expensive piece of kit is the loss of the sensitive data inside it. Cloud computing gives you greater security when this happens. Because your data is stored in the cloud, you can access it no matter what happens to your machine. And you can even remotely wipe data from lost laptops so it doesn’t get into the wrong hands

  • disaster recovery

    Businesses of all sizes should be investing in robust disaster recovery. Where as, in the past this has often been more an ideal for smaller businesses, today’s technology makes it possible

  • automatic software updates

    The beauty of cloud computing is that the servers are off-premise and out of sight and out of your hair. Suppliers take care of them for you and roll out regular software updates – including security updates – so you don’t have to worry about wasting time maintaining the system yourself

  • environmentally friendly

    While the above points spell out the benefits of cloud computing for your business, moving to the cloud isn’t an entirely selfish act. When your cloud needs fluctuate, your server capacity scales up and down to fit. So, you only use the energy you need and you don’t leave oversized carbon footprints
