Cloud Computing

Cloud computing is the ability to access software, services, and resources through the internet. Cloud computing removes the need to have large programs installed on in-house devices. As long as there is an active internet connection, users can access cloud computing services at any time. Many are accessible remotely from other devices. Cloud computing can help users in multiple sites access the same data or work on a single project via multiple apps.

What Small and Midsize Businesses Need to Know About Cloud Computing

For small businesses, cloud computing allows elasticity and scaling. This means that, because all the services are held online and managed by a third party, the business can use as little or as much of the resources as needed. This helps businesses manage their IT budget and reduces strain on internal systems.
