Cloud Computing Services
There are as many definitions of Cloud computing as there are people who use the term.
Our attempt to define it is that it is the movement of computer systems away from servers in your office and onto servers hosted in a central location, accessed via the internet, and for which you are charged a monthly rental.
It is unlikely that anyone would want to do this with their entire system completely and in one go, but at SwiftLogic we’ve been providing some services from the Cloud for as long as we can remember. In fact, we’re all using 'The Cloud' already without knowing it: your website is an example of Cloud computing.
What’s the benefit to you?
Cloud computing has many advantages over providing your own in-house server to do the job.
Secure your email – stop SPAM, viruses, worms, and other email-borne malware BEFORE they arrive in your inbox using Cyber Security
If you have a proportion of your staff who work away from the central office for any period, accessing information from the Cloud means that they can have seamless access.
Cloud services are provided by companies with High-Availability systems, normally co-located and with automatic failover for ultimate reliability that your in-house server can’t rival.
Moving systems to the Cloud moves expenditure from capital to operational and is highly scalable as your business grows.
