The Cloud and Your Business
Imagine creating a way to connect all of your employees, their work, and data into one area? An area that is accessibly not only by you, but specific employees? This is what a cloud can do for your business.
Normal hard drives lack the easy accessibility and transportation of data/projects. They fill up too quickly, cluttering your computer’s memory and storage capability. Even the portable hard drive is hard to transport, it’s bulky exterior makes it difficult to share. If the hard drive crashes, not only are you without your data, but it completely erases everything within. Leaving you with nothing but a metal brick and a giant headache.
The cloud is just a metaphor for the internet. Cloud computing is defined as the storing and accessing data or programs via the internet rather than a hard drive. Examples of clouds are iCloud, Amazon Cloud, Google Drive, and Spotify. These programs can transport music, pictures, program files, and any other form of data between multiple allowed parties. As long as you have an internet connection, you will have access to all of your projects and information. The cloud offers versatility and convenience, while simultaneously preserving the management, control, and security of your business.

"I don't need a hard disk in my computer if I can get to the server faster... carrying around these non-connected computers is byzantine by comparison."
