Save Money By Investing In Cloud Computing
One of the easiest ways businesses can save money is through small changes, like turning monitors off standby at the end of the day and getting your workplace to opt into a ‘lift-share’ scheme for employees.
Small changes all equate to one big change and one change that can help your business to streamline its services, as well as keeping costs low, is cloud computing.
Cloud computing is a revolutionary way for business to get rid of their static servers from the office and can keep everything secure and maintenance-free. On-site servers produce a lot of heat and waste energy and can greatly reduce capital expenditure if they are removed.
These servers also require your IT staff to ensure they are maintained and kept up-to-date, whereas investing in cloud computing can mean that your IT can spend less time on maintenance and more time on strategy of the IT structure.
Being green is something that plays in cloud computing’s favour and because it is both energy and storage efficient it can help your office space, as well as your finances. In fact, according to Bistech, it is estimated that the cloud is at least 30% more environmentally friendly due to less carbon emissions and energy consumption when comparing it to on-site servers.
The NY Times also found that data centres can waste 90 percent or more of the electricity they pull off the grid. This shows a huge emphasis on why more businesses should be turning towards the cloud.
Another benefit to cloud computing is that no matter how big or small your business is, or how big or small it will be in the future, cloud computing can scale to your needs and requirements.
As mentioned previously, making small changes can have a huge impact and by investing in cloud computing, this will work out to be a small change will a massive difference on your efficiency, productivity and your finances.
