If you are finding that your current business technology is slowing you down or you are constantly experiencing network or other critical technical issues, it could be time to move your business to the cloud. Hardware and software problems could be costing you money in lost revenue and maintenance costs and putting your business at risk.

Here are five reasons why you might want to consider an information technology refresh and moving your enterprise to the cloud.

1. Concentrate on running your business and not worrying about your hardware

When you move to the cloud, you effectively move responsibility for your technology to another party. Server availability, backups and technical issues will all be managed effectively by your cloud computing provider whilst you get on with running your business. Cloud systems run at optimal performance, give you access to your information from any web connected device and ensure your business is available 24 hours a day.

2. The cloud is more reliable

To run a business well, you need to ensure you are always available to your customers. With more and more people using their Internet connections and mobile devices to find and use your services, can you really afford for them to experience the dreaded ‘404 error’ when reaching your website? Most cloud providers offer up times of over 98% and will ensure your website and other data is available to you when you need it the most.

3. Best in class cloud technology

Amazon Web Services is one of the leading cloud systems available today. Using state of the art server technology, multiple layers of security and redundancy and enterprise class storage solutions, Amazon Web Services ensures you can enjoy significant cost savings and the peace of mind that cloud server technology bring to your business.

4. The cloud saves you money

Simply put, cloud computing is the most cost effective way to manage your information technology and business systems. Not only do you free yourself from hardware costs, but you can also scale your business systems in a more cost effective manner as your business grows.

5. Enjoy ‘anywhere access’ to your data

With cloud computing, you and your employees are no longer tethered to their computers. They are free to go on site visits, see clients or work from home easily as they will have access to your business data from any device. Cloud technology puts an end to complicated connection methods, trailing wires and dropped connections and gives you smooth remote access to your data 24 hours a day.
