The Internet has been helping businesses and growing steadily since the early 1990s by providing ever faster communications across the country and across the globe. Internet speeds have increased to the point where today they allow the delivery of services via the communications ”Cloud”.
Formed in 1989, Denver Technology has grown up with the internet. We can help you take advantage of the advances in technology.
Basically, cloud computing is computing based on the internet. Users can access data and run programs on a variety of devices such as laptops, tablets and smart phones by connecting via the internet to facilities created and maintained by Service Providers.
This offers small business access to capabilities normally only affordable to Enterprise scale operations.
The Cloud model offers flexibility on demand. Computing power can grow to meet peak workloads and shrink to cater for quieter times and thereby avoid the waste associated with idle processing power. This reduces costs and reduces carbon footprint.
Companies that use cloud-based computing services can also use the cloud based disaster recovery plans that Cloud computing providers build in to their services offering to take care of most issues.
Cloud computing service suppliers look after the server maintenance and patching including security updates, freeing up their customers’ time and resources.
Cloud computing services are typically subscription based, “pay as you go”. This minimizes capital expenditure which means businesses enjoy minimal project start-up costs and predictable ongoing operating expenses. And cloud computing is much faster to deploy.
Cloud computing facilitates keeping all data in one central, secure location. The data remains safe and available even if devices such as laptops are misplaced, lost or stolen.
Cloud computing increases collaboration by allowing all employees to concurrently work on shared documents and see each other’s updates in real time and with VoIP, employees can talk to each other over the internet at the same time..
Cloud based programs and servers allow colleagues to “follow” peers and “tag” records to receive critical updates, immediately changes happen.
Employees can work from anywhere that they have internet access including free public access points. This flexibility positively affects knowledge workers’ work-life balance and productivity.
