More About Cloud...
Cloud computing, also referred to as 'Software as a Service' (SaaS) provides businesses with software that is hosted online and accessed through a web browser from anywhere with an Internet connection.
Cloud Computing is also a business model as well as a technology. Providers of cloud computing solutions charge a monthly fee based on usage. Since multiple businesses will be subscribing to the same software or services, the resources will are shared and so are the costs.
Traditionally a company will purchase software upfront but with Cloud Computing you simply rent the software or service for a monthly fee. You are probably familiar with cloud computing already. If you have used a gmail or hotmail to access email through a web browser then you have already taken advantage of cloud computing.
Business are leveraging the cloud to improve their efficiency. You don't have to transition to the cloud in one step. Cloud computing can be adopted incrementally, such as cloud security, cloud backup and collaboration.

While cost is still a main motivator for moving to the cloud, many companies say that cloud is simply a better option for a number of reasons, implying that companies are enjoying the flexibility that cloud brings and the capacity for exploring new avenues through the use of cloud resources.
Cloud offers many benefits to small businesses including
Adaptable IT - only pay for what you need now
Flexible – you can easily increase/decrease server power and capacity
Quick to deploy – get the extra disk space you need in minutes not days
Go-anywhere IT – it’s always there, wherever you are
Hassle-free IT support – someone else manages the servers, the security and the upgrades
Utilising cloud computing also changes the procurement process, as cloud by its nature is an op-ex cost. Beyond procurement, companies are experiencing changes in policies and procedures, IT department structure and operations, and the use of outside companies.
A limiting factor in Ireland to cloud computing is the speed and quality of the broadband connection. Managed IT will work closely with you to ensure Cloud will deliver to your business.t
