Cloud Concerns

cloud solution concerns

Of course, “clouds bring rain” and Cloud Computing raises concerns with some, about security, stability, speed and data ownership. A recent survey found that cloud computing adoption rates drastically increased since 2009; however, the same survey also revealed concerns over efficiently managing disparate cloud services. Exactly the reason you require a “Cloud Integrator”, such as Ascendance.

Let’s also not forget that Cloud Computing Software services are subject to outages that are beyond a business’ control. Downtime stories serve as a sobering reminder that trusting your data and technology services to an off-site third-party places you at the mercy of that third-party’s up time reliability. So be sure to select a provider who can offer dual data centers with Business Continuity.

Many businesses are countering that dependency on third parties, by going with hybrid cloud solutions. For instance, you can replicate data stored locally on a hard drive to our cloud servers, offering SMB’s the best of both worlds: local control and access to data and peace of mind that the data is backed up to the cloud.

Your current IT Support provider will have many more concerns, because their business will suffer from less call-out charges, less support fees and NO hardware parts or purchases.

‘The Cloud’ also known as Cloud Computing is far from being a new concept and has evolved from only being “computing”. Ascendance helps you make sense of what “cloud” means for you and your business. Many definitions of cloud computing exist, but in simple terms “the cloud” refers to the practice of using a network of remote servers (computers) hosted on the Internet (in datacenters) to store, manage, and process data, rather than using a local (on own premises) server or a personal computer.

The benefits of Cloud Solutions are multiple and will vary for each business, but it is safe to say that Cloud computing has proven a “windfall” to especially small businesses, where it hits a pretty sweet spot. With cloud services, small businesses reap the benefits of not having to deploy physical infrastructure like file and e-mail servers, storage systems or shrink-wrapped software.
