Cloud Solutions? You are in the Right Place! Trust Your Computer Services To The Pros!
These are servers that we access remotely and preferably through a very fast Internet connection and that in theory are well maintained, backed up and secure.
I guess the problem with using a 3rd party cloud server solution is that we lose control. We can however quite simply set-up our own and still have the ownership and be able to say it resides in our network. Dropbox offer FREE cloud server services, which are useful for transferring small files under 2GB or paid versions if the files are larger in size.
My personal perspective is to keep ownership and use local disks as much as possible, however, I do run my own, grunty, cloud server with a mirrored RAID Hdd array. Can be very useful indeed.
In a way we have been using cloud servers for years; Hotmail, Yahoo mail, AOL and any other webmail or web-based database is a cloud server in essence! If you would like to learn more about this area or are interested in hosting your own server, it really is no more expensive than buying a good quality PC for a small business and is scalable to whatever requirement you choose, so do contact us and tell us what you are thinking of creating!
