Data is the new gold and digital innovation is re-shaping every facet of every business. It’s expected that by 2030 data collection and analysis will become the basis of all future service offerings and business models. The cost of data loss, or even interruption to a business is enormous and the consequences can be severe.
Increasingly, start-ups as well as small and medium businesses are turning to the cloud to take advantage of the many benefits cloud hosting provides.
Here are five reasons your organisation needs cloud hosting such as a Virtual Data Centre (VDC)
1- Low costs: As your business grows, so do the IT costs. Business growth means the need for more data storage and hardware. Not to mention a larger IT team to maintain and update local machines. Cloud hosting is a low cost solution for infrastructure services.
2- Data backup and recovery: In today’s unpredictable world, where fires, floods, pandemics are part of the daily grind, it is important that your data is double backed up and can be recovered no matter what happens. Disaster recovery planning is key to the success of your startup.
3- Security: All the functionality of your cloud infrastructure and data storage needs to be secure. In today’s fast-paced world while you are busy growing your business, it is important that you remain free of the stress of ransomware, security or any other threat to your site, app or data.
4- Scalable: Doesn’t matter if you are a company of 2 or 20 or 200 or if what your annual turnover is. Whether your business requirements change every month. Cloud infrastructure solutions such as VDC offer scalable solutions where you decide what you want, how much and for how long you want the solution. You will be able to scale it further or scale back whenever you like with this option.
5- Pre-built and custom cloud provision: Solutions such as VDC require the least technical support, you will have pre-built options which you will be able to customise based on your requirements. And when there is 24×7 support such as at Servers Australia, the process of adopting such solutions becomes ever easy and doable.
