Businesses are increasingly looking for new and innovative ways to enhance results whilst cutting costs and maximising value. Innovative technologies are playing a big part in this and organisations of all sizes and types are moving to the cloud and away from traditional IT methods.
What can your business gain from using cloud services?
- Businesses can increase capacity or add resources quickly without investing in new infrastructure, training new personnel, or licensing new software. Ultimately, it can save companies a considerable amount of money.
- Cloud computing has made it possible for smaller companies to compete on an even playing field with much bigger competitors as ‘Renting’ IT services instead of investing in hardware and software makes them much more affordable.
- Unlike traditional file storage solutions, you simply pay for the file storage space and outgoing bandwidth that you actually use.
Cloud based solutions for your business
Network computing offer numerous cloud based solutions popular with small to medium sized businesses.
Businesses are relying more and more on using email as their primary source of communication both in-house and externally. As more organisations look for a secure, reliable email solution that will not cost the earth, they are increasingly turning to hosted email plans.
The main advantages of hosted email versus an in-house email solution is that it offers a huge mailbox capacity, means staying up-to-date with recent security measures and anti-spam and it guarantees higher-levels of uptime, all going towards making your business run more efficiently and cost-effectively overall.

Network Computing’s Private Cloud
Private Cloud allows company corporate networks and data centre administrators to effectively become in-house ‘service providers’ purchasing, setting up and managing their own clouds. The infrastructure may be shared among different applications, but it’s only ever used by your organisation.
Many devices today make use of Public Cloud storage as embodied in Apple iCloud, Microsoft Skydrive, and Google Drive – but is your data truly safe and secure? Network Computing can set you up your own Private Cloud so you know exactly where your data is and who can have access to it.
