What should a business consider when looking to implement a cloud solution?

Cloud backup and storage solutions can be broken down into two main categories namely Software as a Service (SaaS) and Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS). All of the above fall within either of these categories. Each of these options have their own benefits, we’ve listed these briefly below:

The benefits of Software as a Service (SaaS):

  • Access to the application from virtually any location
  • Developers are constantly improving this software, you will have access to each of the updates and new features without having to purchase the latest version.
  • Having access to complicated and well maintained applications
  • It is much easier to have a remote workforce when all of them are working off a cloud based application
  • The ability to add and remove licences according to the amount of users that are currently in need of the application/s
  • The ability to use this software on the go without having to download and install the software due to the availability of browser platforms.

The benefits of Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS):

  • Better security as these servers are protected by firewalls and antivirus
  • Businesses are better equip to plan for disaster recovery resulting in improved business continuity.
  • Greater focus on your core services.
  • Improved support, increased stability and mindful reliability.
  • Money is saved on capital expenses as well as ongoing costs since it’s longer a necessity to purchase assets out-right
  • The ability to respond rapidly to changing business circumstances
  • Time is saved by quicker deployment. Setting up an onsite server can take weeks or months to setup whereas a hosted server can be setup in a matter of hours or days.
