Cloud hosting has been creating so much buzz not only to individuals but also to large corporations. I heard that most have shifted to cloud recently. Could the cloud also cater to small businesses in the internet? Why is it that only large businesses are shifting to cloud? Why will the e-commerce business not shift to cloud hosts?
Cloud also cater to small businesses in the internet?
Considered to be one of the fastest-rising technologies today, cloud computing basically means that the servers and data of companies would be available over the internet 24/7. It would be stored, easily accessed and can be managed with urgent availability rather than being stored and saved on Hard Drives on computer or servers managed by the IT Department.
Its benefits are what have drawn large scale businesses to switch to it. Cost effective as the fee incurred would be less than if you buy the IT infrastructure yourself. Due to its scalability, there won’t be huge traffic spikes. Data can be accessed via the web browser for easy and fast access. It can be beneficial for small scale business as they tend to have less manpower to handle IT.
