The Cloud Helps You Control Costs and Gives You Improved Flexibility
Switching to the cloud means you can reduce the number of servers you need to have running on-site. This means less overhead for your business; you won’t be buying power-hungry servers, keeping them in temperature-controlled environments, updating operating systems, decommissioning old hardware, or worrying about data loss due to drive failure. The cloud provider takes care of all that.

Compare for Yourself
Compared to traditional in-house data centers, businesses utilizing cloud services experience fewer incidents, which is critical when it comes to protecting the private information of the company and your customers. This fact also dispels many rumors that the cloud is actually less safe than in-house servers.
Not only do you experience greater flexibility and cost savings, the cloud is just a safe place to run your business. One reason for this is the fact that in-house data centers managed by busy IT teams tend to have more misconfigurations than those monitored by large-scale cloud service providers who can afford to have teams designated exclusively to maintenance and security. Many small businesses can’t compete on this scale and lack the resources to hire so many experienced engineers. The threat of misconfiguration is real. 95% of IT decision makers consider them a data security risk. Misconfigurations can further threaten compliance and business continuity. For these reasons, more and more small businesses are turning to the cloud.
