MOVING YOUR DATA TO THE CLOUD
One of the most important IT innovations in recent years is the development of the cloud and cloud computing. Instead of storing and backing up data on site, companies are instead migrating data in a remote database that is owned and maintained by a third-party, better known as the cloud. The physical storage for a cloud service spans multiple servers and in some cases various locations to mitigate the risk of data loss.
On the surface this seems to go against logic, as you want your sensitive data, such as financial records, logistics, employee records, and institutional knowledge, to remain close, but in-house computing systems are a cost you can avoid. With so many advantages of migrating your data to a cloud-based system, businesses today can take advantage of many helpful benefits.
