Why Cloud Hosting ?
ABL Networks provide efficient, cost effective, secure and fast Cloud Hosting for all types of use.
Business’ in the UK are forecast to spend over £150billion per year on Cloud Services by 2020. So why is this ?
Cloud Hosting offers many benefits over traditional on-premise computing.
This is not always the most important a factor as one may think. Cloud Hosting accounts for almost 72% of IT Budgets for Large Corporate companies,the cost savings can be startling when taking into account some of the “hidden” costs of on-premise computing. Think Air Conditioning for your server room, IT Staff Costs, Software licensing costs, real estate costs for the room to store the kit, maintenance charges, spare parts, warranty agreements, and then theres the huge costs of power.
With Cloud Hosting, these costs in the main are cut almost by two thirds. You don’t have to worry about air conditioning, server maintenance, spare parts, electricity usage or server rooms. Your Cloud Hosting is setup as you require it and then it serves its purpose for your business.
As long as you choose a professional Cloud Hosting company, you will be in good hands. Find one that uses ISO accredited data centre space. Hosting in the cloud offers some great advantages over on premise. Physical security is taken care of by your hosting company. Backups can also be entrusted to your hosting company.
We also are PCI certified so are well placed to ensure full compliance with your payment provider.
You should, if your using a good Cloud Hosting company (Like ABL Networks) be using a server that is fairly new – certainly not more than 2 or 3 years old. Doing this kind of equipment refresh on premise is very costly.
With todays excellent and cheap fast internet connections, speed is no longer a “foot on the hosepipe” preventing you using the cloud for your business needs.
Cloud Hosting enables you to provide distributed access to your systems with relative ease. This enables homeworking, multi site working, and the flexibility that in the event of loss of access to your premises (fire, flood, adverse weather etc) you can quickly deploy staff to virtually anywhere where they can access the internet.
Cloud Hosting is not for everyone, and not every application. It needs careful consideration – what do you have now? how does it all work together?
We have been involved in the cloud for years, before the cloud even knew its place in the IT world!
