  • 1. 8 Tips to Scale Faster in the Cloud
  • 2. The Challenge: • Small businesses are faced with the challenge of growing fast while staying lean and efficient – Financial constraints leave them high and dry if they don’t know how to scale with a limited budget • Cloud services allow companies to grow with little to no capital overlay
  • 3. 1. Cost Certainty • Cloud computing almost always forgoes a large up-front capital cost – Almost universally offers a pay-as-you-go billing structure • The word “sunk cost” will never enter your IT budget • This helps businesses get to market fast and budget more efficiently
  • 4. 2. Lower Technology Overhead • Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) relieves companies from the burden of: – Managing servers – Upgrading software – Maintaining a complex infrastructure
  • 5. 3. Focus on Core Competencies • Cloud computing allows companies to grow their business infrastructure incrementally as needed – Allows them to get up and running without taking time away from mission-critical tasks and hiring new talent
  • 6. 4. Achieve Greater Flexibility • With no hardware lock- in, you can easily add or subtract web-based services offering to match your business’ changing needs
  • 7. 5. On-Demand Technology • Use it only when you need it • Pay only for what you use
  • 8. 6. Continuous Innovation • Cloud services provide you with the latest and greatest tools to enhance your business, rather than the classic pay-to-upgrade packaged software release cycle
  • 9. 7. Unlock Collaboration • Many cloud tools (notably Google Apps) are highly collaborative • This allows your team to work together on the Internet anywhere, anytime
  • 10. 8. Enhance Productivity • With simple consumer- style tools and on- demand access from any browser, cloud computing allows you to be as productive as you want – Reduces time spent understanding the technology you’re trying to use
  • 11. The Scalable Benefits are Real • Whether you choose to use cloud computing tools for part or all of your business operations, you will realize the immediate benefits of scalability • Online backups help you achieve scalable benefits since you can archive as many accounts as you need while protecting your data – Backupify solves your social media and Google Apps backup requirements
