Every Business Need At Least These 4 Cloud-Based Infrastructure Services
Even if you are not looking exclusively for cloud-based Internet Technology capabilities, there are still cloud-based services that can benefit you. In fact, there are several Meade Willis cloud-based services that are used widely among small and medium sized businesses, regardless of IT needs. These services are sometimes available a la carte to small and medium-sized businesses to encourage growth without stifling revenue.
ONLINE DATA STORAGE and ONLINE BACKUP
This should be a little obvious but that does not mean you should overlook it. Online data storage—and, particularly, online backup storage—is one of the most important aspects of cloud-based computing that every business needs in today’s marketplace. There are many levels of coverage—up to unlimited, of course—combined with automated data sync and backups that basically do all the work for you. This ensures that if—and when—you need your secondary data, it is already stored for you. Popular data backup providers include Box, Code 42 Software, and of course, Dropbox. Google Drive is another cloud-based data storage application, though it is more common among average users (not necessarily business users).
ONLINE FILE SHARING
Another cloud-based service that every business needs today is online file sharing. This allows computers in two different locations (or multiple computers in several locations) to have access to the same files. More accurately, this service allows one computer to send files to another computer (or device) seamlessly over the web, which can sometimes even be programmed to do so automatically (scheduled deliveries).
Even the smallest of businesses these days, can benefit from a website. Sure, your website might be nothing more than a single page that lists your services and rates, but if you want a web presence (and you do) you not only have to design and build your website but you must also find some web real estate where you can post it. This is web hosting, and cloud-based web-hosting is the best kind.
In the internet age it can be easy to forget that there are people at the other end of your questions and concerns and complaints. Cloud-based infrastructures, then, can also provide businesses of all sizes with the appropriate internet-based voice and data communications (text, messaging, e-mail, etc.) with secure and reliable service at a reasonable price.
