Cloud computing has revolutionized how digital information is stored, accessed and recovered; it’s also provided small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) with unprecedented access to the latest software, applications and IT resources. The cloud gives companies of all sizes the ability to adopt cutting-edge technology that is affordable, customizable and scalable.
Here at Zeno Imaging, we’re helping our customers leverage the power of the cloud to reduce their operating costs, improve workflow and grow their SMBs.
Limitless Secure Data Storage
Imagine having unlimited, on-demand, high-security document storage that you can access from anywhere using a stable Internet connection – without investing in expensive computer hardware, hiring specialized IT staff or worrying about upgrades, software licensing or maintenance.
That’s what the cloud offers – it gives everyone access to technology resources that are safe, effective and most of all, affordable.
Accessible, Scalable Technology
The cloud is often referred to as the ‘great technology equalizer’ for SMBs because it allows companies of all sizes the opportunity to purchase premium data storage, software and IT services on an as-needed basis.
Cloud-based storage and services are affordable because they are shared among numerous users who divide the real cost of the hardware, software and IT support on a pay-as-you-go, buy-what-you-need basis.
Most companies and individuals are already using the cloud for both business and pleasure. Social media tools like Twitter, Facebook and Snapchat are all cloud-based, as are hosted email clients like Yahoo and Gmail. For over a decade the cloud has delivered safe, reliable and cost-effective data storage, remote management and real-time IT services worldwide.
Other Cloud Services
Along with limitless data storage that can be accessed from virtually anywhere using desktop computers, laptops and mobile devices like smartphones, many SMBs use cloud-based Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) applications to dramatically improve efficiencies without making significant capital investments.
Other popular cloud services include Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) -the use of remote servers and IT network hardware, and Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS), the virtual outsourcing of software development and testing framework.
Reduced Downtime, Lower IT Costs
Cloud-based remote management services can dramatically reduce IT-system downtime with proactive network monitoring and preventative maintenance; subscribers to remote management services enjoy all the benefits of having a dedicated IT technician without the usual high costs.
In addition to trouble-shooting and regular system maintenance, remote management services for IT networks include ongoing security checks to identify and quickly respond to any computer-based vulnerabilities and system breaches.
