Cloud Computing, Cloud Servers, Cloud Everything...

Cloud server technology makes your work applications and files available from anywhere you choose, in a secure, virtual-world environment that makes bulky, often unreliable server hardware unnecessary.  

It's a space-saving, productivity-enhancing internet solution that brings your office with you, wherever you go, and there's no need for an army of IT support staff, spanners or gigantic fans to keep the server running. It's all in the cloud. 

It's all in the what? 

The cloud is just that. It's somewhere up there in the ether that is the internet, floating behind a password-protected wall, waiting to work for you and your company. Cloud-based servers are "rented" by companies through third-party service providers (like Dial a Nerd), who take responsibility for storing your work apps and files as part of a subscription service.

Cloud-based services can also incorporate your web hosting services, and they are specifically designed to make file-sharing simpler and more accessible. One of the main advantages of cloud-based information storage is that, as opposed to one large server housing all your files, the information and resources are often distributed among many cloud servers. That makes large-scale loss of data far less likely.

Why use a cloud server?

Cloud servers offer business users better file stability. This is largely because the files in the cloud are less dependent on the software you use on your computer. If your computer software crashes or is hacked, the files in the cloud remain unaffected. 

Physical, office-based servers are prone to crashes and can cause productivity delays while you wait for repairs. Cloud servers make the IT budget more manageable, as they generally work on a fixed subscription basis – so you know in advance what you're in for every month; plus, onsite and telephonic support is included in your subscription.

Simply put, working in the cloud is safer, more reliable and lower maintenance than using a terrestrial server. It's kind of a "win-win" situation that most small-to-medium businesses and even large corporate behemoths are turning to, to keep their data safe and their office environments productive. 

Space parameters are upgradable at the touch of a button, so as your company's storage needs and business grow, so does your unique safe space in the cloud. With a fast, reliable fibre connection, getting to your files is quick and painless, and file sharing is far less confusing, because documents that are worked on by multiple people always remain in the same place – without confusing file name changes.
