In the past, people would run applications from software downloaded on a physical computer or server in their building. Cloud computing allows people access to the same kinds of applications through the internet. This allows for the applications to be portable throughout enterprises, as well as keep sensitive data safe in the event of a disaster. Common applications which our clients are running in our cloud infrastructure include Sage Accounting to do their accounting, and ownCloud to sync and share files within their company.
Cloud-based accounting means business owners stay connected to their data and their accountants, without fear of data loss. It’s scalable, cost effective and easy to use. Sage Accounting is commonly used on our cloud infrastructure
Running Operating Systems from the cloud can be very useful to businesses. This allows easy software upgrades, improved speed, reduced virus risk, and better cost-effectiveness. Almost all operating systems can be run from the cloud, such as Windows, Linux, Mac OS, Debian, etc...
With a cloud server, you can build your own online storage easily and reuse that same machine to run much more services! It is also possible to run storage sharing software such as ownCloud, so that all of the businesses data can be shared and synced with whomever gets access.
