4 Money-Saving Perks of Cloud Computing

January 20, 2017

Over the past few months, we've talked a lot about the benefits of cloud computing. Today, our Delaware County cloud provider is back to tell you even more about this subject. Specifically, we're going to give you the lowdown on how implementing cloud technologies can save your small-to-medium business a great deal of money: 

  1. Increases efficiency – When your company runs its own servers, it's very unlikely all of the available hardware will be used. That's because extra hardware space typically needs to be reserved in case of server failure. With cloud computing, you won't have to worry about saving space, as you'll have the option of scaling your virtual data storage up or down at any time. In turn, your business will be able to stop throwing away money on hardware that isn't fully utilized.
  2. Reduces power costs – Going along with the first point, switching to the cloud will lower your company's energy costs significantly by cutting out idle servers and hardware. As an added bonus, your business will benefit the planet by using less electricity!
  3. Makes data storage less expensive – As we've already pointed out, it's costly to maintain your own servers due to the fact that you need to set aside extra hardware space in case your data must be copied at a moment's notice. But when you opt to use cloud computing, your cloud provider will most likely store your company's data in at least two separate locations, thereby eliminating the need to spend money on hardware space for emergency backups.
  4. Decreases capital costs – Another major financial benefit of cloud computing is that it will save your business from having to spend money on software, hardware, licensing fees and more. Sure, you'll have to pay a monthly fee to your Delaware County cloud provider, but chances are it will be far less expensive than maintaining and updating your own servers.

As you can see, transitioning to cloud computing can have some major financial advantages for your organization.
