Cloud computing has been around for nearly two decades and is quickly becoming a necessity in nearly every industry.  There are a myriad of features that contribute to reduced costs, increased efficiency and business continuity.  Here we take a look at ten key benefits of cloud computing.

Cost Savings

Once you’re on the cloud, easy access to your company’s data will save time and money in project startups. And, for those who are worried that they’ll end up paying for features that they neither need nor want, most cloud-computing services are pay as you go.”

Business Continuity

Protecting your data and systems is an important part of business continuity planning. Whether you experience a natural disaster, power failure or other crisis, having your data stored in the cloud ensures it is backed up and protected in a secure and safe location. Being able to access your data again quickly allows you to conduct business as usual, minimizing any downtime and loss of productivity.”


Cloud computing may seem complicated, but it actually has way fewer issues than other infrastructures. Since the cloud runs on its own servers through a company whose only job is to make the cloud functional and bug-free, it’s usually a whole lot more reliable than your own, on-location server.”

Backup And Recovery

Once the data is stored in a Cloud, it is easier to get the back-up and recovery of that, which is otherwise very time taking process on-premise.”

SaaS and Cloud Dev Platforms

A software-as-a-service provider may discuss the savings from paying for application access versus purchasing off-the-shelf software. Software providers will add those “cloud attribute” benefits to the specifics of their software. Recently, there has been more discussion regarding the savings that cloud-based platforms can offer developers.”


Giving employees easy access to their work portals is just one of the many benefits of cloud computing. The cloud is accessible to anyone using the internet. All your employees must do is log in to their accounts, and they have access to their email, files, and anything else they need to get their jobs done.”

Space Saving

If you’re looking to save on space around the office and more efficiently use the space you already have, cloud computing helps you reduce your physical footprint by freeing up valuable workspace that’s currently devoted to IT infrastructure.”

Remote Work

Having the ability to work from various locations is a strategic benefit of remote work but now it’ll be a necessity. Cloud storage can help remote workers stay productive from wherever they choose to work. Cloud- focused applications facilitate this experience because they permit users to synchronize mobile devices, tablets and computer together.”


Rather than investing in an on-premises data warehouse, where you are also required to implement and maintain security protocols, the cloud provides enterprises with a simpler, less resource-intensive way to protect their data.”


Collaboration is instantly enhanced with cloud computing functions. You no longer have to wait for your teammate to exit a document for you to edit; with online data storage, you can both read and edit text at the same time.”
