Cloud Computing / Mobility

Data Cloud

What is cloud computing and can it help your business?
Cloud computing is a term referred to storing and accessing data over the internet.  It does not store any data on the hard disk of your personal computer.  You access data on a remote server.


Advantages of Cloud Computing

·         Flexibility

·         Mobility

·         Unlimited storage capacity

·         Quick Deployment



Disadvantages of Cloud Computing

·         Performance Can Vary

·         Technical Issues

·         Security Threat in the Cloud

·         Internet Connectivity

·         Lower Bandwidth

SMB sample scenario:

-Cost of on premise server with installation: $7,500 with life expectancy of 5-7 years = $1,071-$1,500 annually

-Cost of off premise server: $300 per month = $3600 annually


Conclusion:

Cloud Computing is a fast growing part of network-based computing and is here to stay.  However, most small to medium businesses (SMB’s) are better served by a hybrid approach of off premise (cloud based) and on premise (in house).

It is always best to have an IT professional calculate the cost, advantages and disadvantages of off premise versus on premise for your particular business.

Comp Solutions, LLC will guide your company through these decisions whether to move to the cloud, keep everything in house or a hybrid approach (combination of cloud and in house).
