3 REAY 1 Table of Contents» Reach for the Sky with Cloud Services To some, cloud services can be a confusing concept, but they are much simpler than they appear. These services can save your business a lot of time and money, while also providing a secure platform for your team to and share important documents and resources. Basically, cloud services are applications that allow people to share resources over a network on the internet, or in the cloud, rather than at a physical site, like a server or computer. These services can save companies and IT departments the hassle of installing and updating software onto every single company device, while also providing safe, secure storage for confidential files. Cloud services can also allow your company to share and store all of your files 24/7, while constantly syncing and backing up your documents. These services can save your business a lot of time and money, while also providing a secure platform for your team to and share important documents and resources. In this piece, we re going to discuss the history and evolution of the cloud, along with the many benefits it provides to small businesses. TOOLS SECUREEXT

4 REAY 2 Table of Contents» The History and Evolution of Cloud Services Cloud services evolved from the popularization of the internet and developed quickly as associated applications and tools began to spring up for users. Before the first big cloud developments happened in the 1980 s, companies had to install applications onto every team member s desktop, so that they could all connect to the same hosting platform. These applications allowed people to various services from their company s server, without having to download each individual resource onto their personal computers. Since then, cloud services have become increasingly more mobile. It has evolved with the proliferation of wirelessly connected mobile devices requiring to resources and data stored somewhere outside of the device. Cloud services applications began using this mobile approach, so that users could share and files by simply logging into their cloud application. ow, both businesses and consumers are using cloud services for (like Hotmail or Gmail), storage (like ropbox or irive), and social networking (like Facebook or LinkedIn). These cloud applications have begun to eliminate the need for local storage, because the cloud has an incredibly large amount of space and it also allows you to jump from one device to another, with a high level of mobility. Every document your team creates can be put into the cloud and can be ed from anywhere, on any device: smartphone, tablet, laptop, or home computer. Since they are so ible, It is important to make sure these accounts are password protected, so you can minimize the risk of losing any security for sharing. Public vs. PrivATE Cloud Services There are two types of cloud services: public and private. Public clouds allow open to your resources and information, which makes for easy and simple sharing. An example of a public cloud is Facebook. On Facebook, everyone has their own page and a personal profile that they can share with friends and use to other people s information. Public cloud services are more commonly used by smaller business and consumers. TOOLS SECUREEXT

5 REAY 3 Table of Contents» A private cloud is limited to a specific audience and its services are hosted on a private server. It is usually used for enterprise, financial, or government applications, because it offers a higher level of security and encryption, which can be beneficial to businesses. Private cloud services offer better compliance, because they offer highly regulated industries and business more control over their networks. The Uses and Benefits of Cloud Services Businesses are using cloud services for , file storage, computing, video conferencing, and so much more. Businesses are using cloud services for , file storage, computing, video conferencing, and so much more. These cloud-based services provide lots of great benefits for business, such as: Efficiency Cloud services help you and your team work from anywhere, from any internet-enabled device. These services also provide a quick sign-up and login, with little to no IT maintenance. For example, a new, growing business may need to onboard new employees every month. Cloud applications help the business owner provide to essential business tools quickly and easily, with little to no IT knowledge or support required. Business Agility These services help business increase collaboration and productivity, through file sharing platforms like Rogers Mobile Work Folder. File sharing tools help your team and update their files from anywhere, and can automatically back up work. Cloud services also offer more web-hosting flexibility, allowing a company to easily host more on their website and increase bandwidth seasonally or as needed. For example, a small consulting firm needs to collaborate with a lot of different suppliers on a large project. They can use a collaboration platform, buying capacity on demand, and easily manage teams and projects in TOOLS SECUREEXT

6 REAY 4 Table of Contents» different locations. They only have to pay for the cloud storage used each month and can downgrade service when the project is completed. Improved Operations There are far fewer operational issues and maintenance required for cloud services. Cloud applications remove some dependence on IT professionals for day-to-day maintenance, because they are always up and running efficiently. Many cloud suppliers provide instant upgrades, so businesses don t have to deal with the hassle of maintaining and installing new software, or losing productivity during server updates. Cloud application providers also offer professional disaster recovery to mitigate the pain of hardware malfunctions or the spread of a computer virus. Security Cloud applications can offer great security and privacy, often more than locally-based applications. In the cloud, your documents are automatically synced in real-time and are backed-up in the application, rather than in the device itself. That way, your files are better protected from malfunctions, viruses, or errors on your device. When choosing a provider, companies should look for business-grade applications that offer encryption and advanced password protection. That way, hacking or a lost device won t compromise your files or services and your team can share files safely amongst users and devices. How to Choose the Best Cloud Services Solution for Your Business Here are some considerations, when deciding which cloud application to choose. Business-grade services typically offer better security and disaster recovery for your company, but vary from provider to provider. Here are benefits to look for: Redundancy Make sure that your information is being stored on multiple servers. That TOOLS SECUREEXT

Security Make sure your application provider offers business-grade security with encryption and advanced password protection. Also, if you d prefer to have your data stored within Canada, be sure to ask the provider where your data is stored. Credibility Make sure the company has credibility and experience, and has already established itself as business services provider to further ensure security practices and long-term availability. Flexibility Make sure you can adjust the size of your services based on your needs.
