Lower your I.T. costs through Cloud computing
Utilising high speed fibre broadband to access cloud computing will give you access to affordable business software and business applications. The cloud will also support your data storage needs, ensuring your information is safe and retievable no matter where you are.
For those that don’t consider themselves to be tech-savvy, terms like the cloud may be enough to get you to switch off. As a concept the cloud is very simple; it means data is saved over the internet instead of on a hard drive. In essence “The cloud” is just a metaphor for the Internet. In fact, you’re probably already using cloud without knowing it – Google apps, Facebook and webmail like Yahoo are all examples of cloud computing because the information is stored in data centres and accessed via the internet.
High speed fibre broadband isn’t necessary for accessing the cloud, but it helps. Large files, or multiple files can be uploaded or downloaded in a matter of seconds meaning no downtime waiting for files to load, and the ability to share information instantly.
The Irish Internet Association (IIA) and National Standards Authority of Ireland (NASI) have produced SWiFT 10 Adopting The Cloud – Decision Support For Cloud Computing which can be found on the Cloud Computing Working Group resource site.
