Should You Trust Your Business To The Cloud?

Sponsored Content provided by Marty Cayton - President & Owner, TeamLogic IT of Wilmington & Fayetteville

If you pay attention to the IT buzz, it seems like everyone has moved to some type of cloud computing.

You want your business to be competitive and save money, but is “the Cloud” the right solution for you?

Put simply, if you are using the cloud, you’re storing and sharing data and software via the internet instead of on your hard drive or that big room of servers in the back of the building. The information remains on physical servers in a remote location but you can access it anytime.

The cloud may have started as a storage solution, but it has grown to offer many other options, such as email, database servers, hosted VoIP, data backup and more.


The Solution Depends On You

Although many people seem to think moving their business to a cloud architecture is a great idea, others might not want want to learn the new technology. Some may not want to manage the cost of moving everything to the cloud.
And still others might ask, If things are running smoothly why should I change?

What is becoming clear is that a hybrid approach that uses both your current setup and some cloud technology may be the way to go. Of substantial benefit to the Wilmington area - if you keep your business-critical information stored in a remote location relatively safe from natural disasters, like hurricanes and floods, you can continue to do business even if your physical location needs repair.

As with anything, the right solution depends on your particular business needs. A Managed Service Provider (MSP) can assess your needs and implement a solution that includes a cloud component so your critical data is available whenever and wherever you are.


Let Your MSP Help

As an MSP, TeamLogic IT stays on top of emerging cloud services to pass on access to new markets and operations so your business can grow and compete. We can assess the feasibility of combining your current security policies with possible cloud applications and make it easy for employees to use new cloud programs.


Previous Client Satisfaction

One of our clients found that, when their business was growing faster than expected, sharing information between employees and worldwide clients was proving to be a challenge. A reliable infrastructure was needed and, even though they didn’t really speak the language of IT, they wanted someone to come in and help them align to the rapidly changing work environment.

After assessing their needs - and the cost and time to get a working solution in place - we determined that a cloud-based solution proved right for the nature of their mobile work environment. The technical team put a Cloud File Server and Cloud Hosted Exchange solution in place, which proved to be prescient when a hurricane came through and many other companies had to close their doors temporarily. The cloud solution allowed employees to continue working from home to keep the business going.

Working with TeamLogic IT was a wonderful experience,” the company’s general manager recalled. “They are always accessible and proactive in their approach. We have come to rely on them for advice on all things related to our IT infrastructure.”

Wilmington has plenty of opportunities for you to learn about the cloud, but it will take some time and dedication.
