The Cloud is quickly becoming one of the most popular ways to backup your website, business records, and communications. But it can do so much more than just data storage. In fact, cloud based services can keep you running on the latest software and hardware at a competitively low cost.
At Digital Agent, we use two cloud computing service models to keep our clients secure and up-to-date: Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and Software as a Service (SaaS). IaaS gives businesses access to Digital Agent’s top-of-the-line computing infrastructure and includes virtual server space, network connections, bandwidth, and IP addresses. Meanwhile, SaaS allows businesses to access feature-rich, mission-critical software over the Internet for a low monthly rate. As many businesses begin to reevaluate their expenses and changing digital needs, cloud computing offers affordable solutions to a number of common problems.
You Cannot Keep Up with Software Updates and New Releases
Software is expensive. As ubiquitous as business suites like Microsoft Office have become, they have not gotten any cheaper. And staying current with the latest updates and releases can add up to a lot of time and expense above your initial purchases.
With SaaS, you get access to the same cutting edge software without any of that hassle. Simply let your SaaS provider know what you need, and they will take care of the rest for a low monthly rate. SaaS is far more scalable and adaptable than managing your own software. You can adjust what tools you use without a huge upfront investment just by changing your SaaS plan.
Get cloud solutions customized to your unique business needs.
Your Goals for Growth Are Greater Than Your Computing Infrastructure Can Handle
As expensive as software can be, it rarely comes close to the expense of building and maintaining multiple servers and complex enterprise infrastructure. You are not just paying for the hardware itself, but the space needed to house it and the manpower to keep it running. Plus, you cannot simply download a hardware update; replacing components can get very expensive, very quickly.
If you need to run your business on more computing power than you can afford to maintain, then IaaS may be just the solution you need. You’ll have access to the robust infrastructure of an established IT company plus the added security and flexibility of cloud computing. IaaS is a great option for companies with workers that are constantly on-the-go or work remotely. At Digital Agent, we set up our IaaS clients with the ability to access this service from anywhere with a secure internet connection.
You Are Concerned About the Security of Your On-Site Data and Operations
Most people use the cloud for personal reasons, like backing up photos and phone data. Why have so many people agreed that this is a smart move? Because the cloud can be very secure relative to local storage on a personal device, especially if that device could easily fall into the wrong hands. If you are worried your in-office computing network could be compromised by a malicious hacker or a physical threat like a natural disaster, you can do more than simply save a back-up copy of your data to the cloud. Actually hosting your business in the cloud can help keep your information and your operations safe from the unforeseen. Of course, your business will face different security risks from being connected to the cloud, which is why it is important to go with a cloud services provider that also offers you the best in cybersecurity.
Migrating to the Cloud
If these cloud solutions sound like your solution, you may be wondering how to actually migrate your business to the cloud. When you reach out to a cloud services provider like Digital Agent, the first step is a full network assessment. This will help us make a plan for what equipment should stay and what needs to be migrated to the cloud. The whole process is designed to be disruption-free, so you can focus on running your business.
Digital Agent combines the latest technical innovations with old-fashioned service values. Modeled like a family-run business with a commitment to customer care, personalized service and attention to detail.
