What is Cloud Computing?
While the “cloud” may seem like a relatively new innovation, it is just the internet repackaged and remarketed. Companies used to store their important data on local hard drives, which typically requires additional equipment and IT personnel to manage.
Today many businesses use the cloud, which is a software or service that runs on the internet. Examples of the cloud in action would be applications such as Netflix, Gmail, and Dropbox. Information uploaded to the cloud is accessible nearly anywhere with an internet connection.
Cloud hosting solutions offer your employees the ability to take their work with them, meaning more productivity outside of the workplace. The importance of this feature was highlighted during the COVID-19 pandemic, as many employers turned to remote workspaces.
