Cloud Computing for Small Businesses: Top Reasons Small Businesses Should Be On the Cloud

For small business owners, converting to the cloud can make business efficiency take wing and efficiency soar. There are a number of reasons to make cloud computing the primary means of storing, saving, and sharing data within any sized company, but today we’d like to target the top benefits of cloud computing for small businesses.

Go Mobile

As many small businesses seek to make it possible for their employees to work from home or access pertinent information on the go in meetings outside the office with clientele, the need for a mobilized workspace has become increasingly necessary. As wireless Internet capabilities become available everywhere, from coffee shops to hotels and offices, small companies are looking to the cloud as a means to increase the ability to make work portable. With the cloud, small business can make their software accessible via the Internet, meaning employees can access critical files from anywhere they are able to get online.

Scrimp and Save

Because cloud services are oftentimes offered on a pay-as-you-go plan, small businesses are able to pay without obligation to long-term contracts – and without having to shell out money for services they don’t need. This means that as business expands, so too, can storage and software needs be expanded from month to month, creating a scalable solution for small businesses. Rather than taking up space on expensive hardware, information stored on the cloud minimizes the overuse and excess storage of data on hard drives and computers.

Safe and Sound

Cloud computing offers a blanket of security to users by way of backing up the data it stores off-site. In so doing, the risk of suffering from a rupture in security is significantly reduced, making it more difficult for hackers, viruses, and other cybersecurity dangers to infiltrate a small company’s important information.  

Sharing and Simplifying

Cloud computing makes it simple for employees to share documents with one another, eliminating the need for sending large files and attachments via email, and creating a universal space for employees to interact and collaborate with one another, making work productivity more efficient in a small business.

Dodging Disaster

Working on the cloud means that any issues that may arise with a small business’s in-house servers or machines – caused by power outages, cooling issues, natural disasters, and so forth – are nearly completely eliminated. Based on virtualization, disaster recovery with the cloud copies an entire server onto an offsite data center and onto a virtual host almost instantaneously, making it a faster solution than traditional data recovery.

Cutting Edge

Cloud companies continually strive to perfect their product, tweaking it and developing new offerings consistently to improve user experience and enhance business functions. Being able to take advantage of these ongoing updates allows small companies to stay ahead of the curb and implement the new resources made available to them via the cloud, giving them an edge over competition. Cetrom’s cloud computing services allow small businesses on the rise to affordably adapt their data storage and sharing needs. By outsourcing IT services and scaling their cloud, small businesses have access to the means to reduce capital expenditures while enhancing workplace efficiency.
