Cloud Computing

Cloud computing means storing and accessing data and programs over the Internet instead of your computer's hard drive.

The cloud is just a metaphor for the Internet.

 

The flexibility of cloud computing into your IT environment comes with several benefits:

 

  • Predictable budgets—Change IT budget from expensive upfront costs to lower monthly charges.
     

  • Reduced infrastructure costs—Eliminate the need for a large amount of in-house infrastructure thus lowering the drain on budget and IT support.
     

  • Lower operational costs—Maintenance, personnel, updates, and infrastructure upgrades are handled by your vendor freeing up budgets for other IT initiatives.
     

  • Freedom from commitment—Most vendors operate on a pay-as-you-go model. So you can quickly and easily switch to alternate vendors if you find a better fit.
