The Benefits of Cloud Servers

It’s getting difficult to remember how things worked before cloud computing. Businesses had to pay for software licenses they would never need. Data storage was done on-site and was neither quick nor reliable, and if a business needed to restore data from backups, it took forever. Employees could only collaborate on documents that were emailed or saved locally, meaning multiple versions were in multiple locations. 

Out of this chaos and inefficiency rose a way for the internet to play an even bigger role in how businesses collaborate, store their information, and use technology. 

File Storage and Sharing

Floppy disks used to be standard equipment, but with better hard drives and now the ability to store data on remote servers, your storage capacity is almost limitless. Many services specialize in securely storing uploaded files, but perhaps where these services add the most value is in the tools they provide to give owners the access they need. This includes granting that access to other users for easy collaboration. 

Disaster Recovery and Backups

When computer systems needed to be restored in the past, technicians turned to stacks of floppy disks. Backups were difficult and time consuming to do daily, if they were done at all. Now with cloud data storage, everything can be stored and accessed remotely. If ransomware wipes out your data or if your physical location is threatened by disaster, cloud computing will have a complete snapshot of your system ready to go. Companies threatened by flood or that lose hardware due to fire or theft can reconstruct their servers using data that was saved remotely. 

Software as a Service

One of the greatest benefits of using the cloud is being able to access new and powerful software that streamlines what you do and increases productivity across your business. Until the cloud arrived, these expensive programs were available only to companies that could afford them. But through cloud computing, small and medium organizations can take advantage of vertical scalability, which gives them the option to access more, or fewer, services or features on demand.

— Rob Smith , Business Manager at Back Creek Christian Academy

"SBT Partners was my Knight in Shining Armor. One of my servers went down suddenly and the IT company I had did not resolve the issue after 3 days of being down. SBT Partners had worked all weekend to get our school back up and running. They have been very responsive to our needs in a timely fashion. I would recommend this company to anyone that is looking for a top notch IT company!"
