What are the benefits of implementing a cloud computing strategy?
Transferring to a cloud hosted IT infrastructure brings with it a host of benefits, including increased flexibility and scalability, improved security and disaster recovery, plus better cost management with a “pay as you go” pricing model.
Increased flexibility and scalability
As your business grows, your technology demands grow with it. Sometimes your need for extra bandwith is only temporary. Cloud servers are vast and they offer the greatest amount of flexibility by being able to adapt quickly and easily to your growing or, indeed, fluctuating demands.
Improved security and disaster recovery
You can rest assured that the cloud servers which host your infrastructure and/or your software are protected by the most powerful, robust and resilient security measures. Those same measures are what are also protecting the integrity your data, keeping it safe, confidential and readily available, thus giving you complete peace of mind.
Pay as you go
Cloud computing allows you to pay for the services you need for as long as you need them. We can recommend solutions which host your entire ICT infrastructure for a pre-determined monthly amount, thus negating the need for you to purchase expensive server or SAN hardware. Indeed, the only hardware purchases which are required are any PCs, laptops, Windows Surface devices and tablets you choose to use in your business. This allows you to forecast your spend accurately over time while keeping up to date with the latest software developments.
Software as a Service (SaaS)
Through our partnerships with several technology vendors, we can provide you with a full range of SaaS solutions.
Microsoft Office 365
NVT Group is a Microsoft Gold Partner. If a Microsoft Office 365 solution is best for you, we have the expertise to implement this solution on your behalf.
Microsoft Office 365 applications include the following:
- Microsoft Office
- Microsoft Exchange (E-mail)
- Instant Messaging
- Microsoft Lync (Video Conferencing)
By switching to Microsoft Office 365 you get to keep using the Office applications you use in your business but the onus is no longer placed on you to keep those applications up to date.
