When businesses talk about moving to the cloud, they are talking about having the IT services that they generally use daily, hosted online.

Something that used to be stored locally on physical hardware, usually in the same building, is now available to access over the internet. In effect using the internet as your network.

This has the benefit of convenience, accessibility, scalability and having full control over your operations.

 

The cloud, with the most talked about advantages being cost, scalability, accessibility and reliability is often seen as a chance to migrate from the troublesome Capex model to the more flexible and controlled Opex model,

negating the worry of budgeting and the nasty expensive surprises that lurk around the Capex corner.

 

Businesses can move their email systems, office suites, server architecture and more to the cloud. There are a range of services that IP Technology provide to fill most requirements regardless of complexity.
