Aside from no longer having to dust or maintain a big hard drive, cloud servers have a lot of benefits to your business. First of all, they have features that are beneficial to multiple computer systems or communal computer set-ups, such as schools or office environments. They are also excellent storage solutions for those who handle a lot of data or those who need secure and easy access to files and applications.
However, one of the main selling points of a cloud server is enhanced security. The security around a multi-million-pound datacentre is far greater than anything a standard office could maintain, so keeping your business data in there rather than an obscure office cupboard is preferable.
Additionally, cloud servers are encrypted, which means that they have an extra layer of security to keep prying eyes out. And, if there is a power outage, there’s no need to worry about your computer not saving documents, backup files are kept elsewhere, safe on the server ready for you to access at the drop of a hat.
