4 Ways Cloud Hosting Effectively Supports Remote Work
May 7, 2020
Remote work capabilities are a necessity to keep your business competitive in the digital era. It’s more important than ever to implement software systems that enable smooth scalability, flexibility, cost savings, and mobility. Fortunately, cloud hosting offers all of these benefits and more. Here are four ways cloud hosting helps your business operate remotely.
Complete Access at Lower Cost
If you’re a frequent reader of our blog, you’ve seen us mention the cost-saving benefits provided by cloud hosting. The annual cost to support an on-premise system is substantially larger than cloud hosting.Once you're on the cloud, you’ll have easy access to all of your company’s data 24/7 -- saving you time and money when starting new projects. The cloud’s pay-as-you-go service gives you more control over your monthly expenses. You’ll never pay for a library of features and applications that you neither want nor need. The pay-as-you-go system also applies to data storage for your team and clients.
Data Loss Prevention
When you rely solely on local solutions, your data is limited to the hardware and software on-site. This isolated system puts all digital functions and resources of your business at risk. If anything were to happen to your hardware (system crash/failure, theft, virus, etc.), you could lose all of your valuable data. Even with a local backup, remote work would grind to a halt until the system has been restored. With a cloud-based system, all information residing on the cloud is protected by built-in redundancies to eliminate the risk of physical hardware failures.
Remote Work Flexibility
Flexibility is key when it comes to remote work. That’s why you need a system that allows access anywhere at any time. Collaboration and communication tools provided by cloud hosting ensure that your team remains as productive at home as they are in the office. With a reliable internet connection, your team can painlessly access and work with data as needed. File sharing capabilities ensure that remote teams can continue to work efficiently at home or on the go.
