It’s been years since the Cloud has demonstrated its might, yet there are still concerns related to performance, integration, compatibility, etc. that haunt decision makers. We’re here to prove them wrong.
Haunt is a good word because businesses who are still on the fence are losing money every second at the hand of their cloud-loving competitors. The reality is that cloud technology is no longer expensive, nor unsafe, and there’s always the option to go for a distributed architecture to ensure service continuity in case of server failures.
There’s also the misconception that software, platform, and infrastructure -as-a-service is something only Enterprises afford or want. Nothing could be farther from the truth. Clouds are scalable and agile, meaning you can reap the same benefits with a team of 10, 100, or 1,000. The hassle-free nature of cloud services is incomparable to keeping a local server, but you can have the best of both worlds if you want, as mentioned above.
In fact, Hybrid is one of the main reasons why you should consider migrating some of your operations to the cloud. You get the benefits of cloud deployment models all-in-one, and you keep your sensitive data locally. This way you don’t have to worry about security.
Clouds also help mitigate the overheads of costly servers and they usually come with Disaster Recovery, which many small business owners have opted for. The IaaS model lets you store important documents, proprietary code, even whole applications that can be recuperated in case disaster strikes.
And here’s one of our favorite perks: Pay-Per-Use. VoipNow is the best example of our offerings where you pay for the amount of service that you use for as long or as little as you use it. At any time you can scale up or down in accordance with your business needs, or stop using it altogether. Servicing is handled by the provider, so that’s another problem chalked off the whiteboard.
One area you can consider cloudifying your operations is communications. Service providers looking to expand their portfolio and grab a bigger slice of the enterprise PBX pie can get VoipNow and reap the above benefits, plus video, presence, instant messaging, contact center features, conferencing, and mobility. Collaboration in the cloud is what you’re after? Try Hubgets, but be warned: it makes teamwork fun and addictive. So what are you waiting for?
