Advantages of Cloud Computing
- 1. The greatest advantage of cloud computing is the ability to scale your entire business without scaling costs. As your business grows, the cloud expands to accommodate your needs. Cloud computing is also horizontally scalable, meaning that you can add greater storage capacity as you need it with little or no additional cost. Scaling allows your business to grow alongside of the technology it uses rather than growing out of it. Scalability is essential when it comes to creating a business model that is cost effective, and IT is no exception to that rule.
- 2. One of the ways Network Elites helps your business grow alongside the technology it uses is by integrating that technology as efficiently as possible. From using technology solutions that are built with adaptability in mind to helping you implement crucial updates, we work hard to make sure that your technology is working hard for your business. Another key strategy we use is to continually assess the benefits of each technology in use. Sometimes a technology that works for your business in its early stages just simply does not work later on once your customer base has expanded. We have the technological expertise to conduct professional audits that give you insight into what is and is not working for your company.
- 3. Cloud computing architecture is known as “horizontally scalable,” which means that it is easy to add additional capacity to later on. Whether you have recently hired a large number or employees or gained a massive influx of customers due to unexpected media attention, cloud computing architecture is designed to expand easily without disrupting your work flow. This means that you can grant access to our computing resources to a large number of people without significantly increasing the cost or hiring more employees to manage the increase.
When determining whether outsourcing the management of your Dallas IT infrastructure is the right move for your company, the deciding factor often comes down to resources. Most businesses simply do not have the resources to handle such a significant responsibility without any outside assistance. From the time and costs associated with hiring and training IT personnel to the amount of money it costs to buy all the necessary technology and store it in-house, outsourcing your IT needs to a highly experienced company like Network Elites is likely a far more efficient way to use your limited resources.
