Everyone is talking about “the cloud.” But what does it mean for my business?
Business applications are moving to the cloud. It’s not just a fad!
The shift from traditional software system running in the office to the Internet has steadily gained momentum over the last 10 years and is no longer the reserve of large enterprise organisations. Traditional business applications have always been very complicated and expensive. The amount and variety of hardware and software required to run them can be daunting. You need a whole team of experts to install, configure, test, run, secure, and update them.
With cloud computing, you eliminate those headaches because you’re not managing hardware and software. Cloud Computing has become a utility service similar to gas and electricity. You only pay for what you need, upgrades are automatic, and scaling up or down is easy.
Businesses are running all kinds of apps in the cloud, like customer relationship management (CRM), HR, accounting, and much more.
SOS have partnered with Amazon Web Services who by all accounts are the largest cloud service provider by far.
SOS’s certified AWS Solution Architects can assist your business in deploying part or all of your on premise computing and storage infrastructure into the Cloud.
