Cloud Solutions Are Stable And Secure
Outages are expensive, and small and mid-sized businesses aren’t immune to the cost. Downtime costs thousands of dollars an hour; when your system is down, you can’t do business. It’s as simple as that. Every minute you lose is money out the door.
If your technology is all on-site, then it’s on you to keep it up and running 24/7. All kinds of things can make that difficult. Power outages, natural disasters, cyber attacks and hardware issues each have the potential to bring your entire business to a grinding halt.
Unless you’re running in the cloud.
Cloud solutions are remote. They are architected to operate from purpose-built, hardened data centers, with battery and generator backups to allow them to continue operating even in the event of a long-term power outage. They have redundant, high-speed fiber Internet connections. And they limit physical access to only those who can pass a fingerprint and retinal scan. Cloud providers know their clients are counting on their services. They take security and maintenance seriously. As a result, these services are extremely stable and secure.
That stability means you won’t have to worry about losing time or money to a server failure. Even if you don’t have power on-site, you can access cloud services from any connected device. The cloud makes your business much more outage-resistant.
