What’s the Cloud and why should you be moving to it.

The term Cloud computing made it’s advent about 10 years ago.  When people talk about ‘moving to the cloud’ – what it really means is using ‘internet storage’ for saving and processing information instead of your hard drive on your computer.

This ‘internet storage’ metaphorically is thought to exist in the ‘cloud’ – as when you save something the information is not being sent to your hard drive, metaphorically it’s being sent into the air, thus visions of it being placed into a cloud.

So why move to the Cloud?  Here’s our top 3 reasons:

  1. Disaster Recovery: If your computer dies, and everything is saved on your hard-drive – in 90% of cases, we can’t recover your valuable documents, family photos or music you’ve stored on the hard drive.  And if your computer is stolen, there’s no chance of recovering the data stored on it.
  2. Access: If your computer dies,  and you been saving your documents and photos in the cloud – all is not lost!  Once you are up and running with a new computing device, you’ll be able to access everything again, plus – you’re also able to access it from any computing device with internet connection, anytime, anywhere in the world.
  3. Software Updates: We love that cloud applications constantly roll out software updates, including security updates to keep you safe from online threats.  These updates, in most cases, are done automatically, so you don’t have to do a thing.

So is it time you moved to the cloud?  For more information on cloud computing and how get it working for you – contact the experts at Green Mouse on 07 827 7119 or email info@greenmouse.co.nz
