More and more discussions are being had today regarding the move by businesses toward cloud-based storage. The cloud is a virtual space that allows users to place data into a public, private or hybrid space free of physical limitations. It gives you the ability to lower your infrastructure costs and maximize your storage capability.


It is important to understand why more enterprises are moving to cloud storage and how cloud storage impacts your information technology (IT) data systems. This understanding allows you to make the appropriate decisions with regards to the allocation to resources to the cloud and how to properly manage them and you data.

1) Safeguarding Your Data

Your data held in the cloud receives the same, if not higher level of security then when you maintain it within your physical environment. Cloud-based data receives a higher level of encryption and security that denies unauthorized access and maintains your proprietary rights to the information essential to your business and its operations.

2) Making Your Data Viable in the Event of Disaster

When disaster strikes, your greatest concern is that the physical facilities you own may be susceptible to destruction, threatening the viability of that data. Placing your data in a virtual environment such as the cloud means that you have access to the essential information that you need in order to continue operating, even in the face of disaster.

3) Improving Data Mobility

Speaking of disaster management and data access, as an example, your data held in cloud systems is accessible wherever you are. Important client information can be accessed via any device that has access to the internet, whether in the office, on the road or wherever you or your associates may be. The mobility of your customer and business information means you can do as much if not more on the go, and not be subject to the limitations of data only available when in a fixed location.

4) Increasing the Easy Accessibility of Your Data

Internet access is the key to having access to your data. Wherever you have the internet available to you, you have the ability to access data. This unleashes the lasso your people have to your physically housed data and allows you the access needed to conduct business.

5) Bringing Your IT Costs in Line

When comparing your data held in the cloud versus a physical facility that you own, manage and pay depreciation costs for, the cloud wins. The virtual access to your data held in cloud systems helps you eliminate costs associated with maintaining physical locations needed to housing servers and other hardware assets that your business requires to maintain you data.
