Denver IT Support Company presents What is Cloud Computing? Answering Questions About the Cloud for Small Business

  1. 1. ANSWERING QUESTIONS ABOUT “CLOUD POWER” FOR SMALL BUSINESS
  2. 2. Presented by NORTH STAR, INC. DENVER IT SUPPORT SPECIALISTS Helping your Organization to be More Productive NORTH STAR, INC.
  3. 3. Offering you answers to the questions you may have about cloud computing.
  4. 4. Does my business need the cloud?
  5. 5. Even more important than which service you might choose is the question of whether or not it’s time to transition to the cloud.
  6. 6. Only after that question has been answered will the choice among cloud-based services matter.
  7. 7. So, let’s ask a few more questions that will help you decide…
  8. 8. Would you prefer pay-as-you-go services over investments in applications?
  9. 9. Would you rather pay for the storage you need than invest in servers and other hardware?
  10. 10. Would you like to save space in your offices rather than building a server room?
  11. 11. Would you like to have all of your productivity apps available for your mobile team to use 24/7, 365?
  12. 12. Would you like to be able to use the most versatile computing system on the market at all times from any location?
  13. 13. If you answered yes to any combination of these questions you are a good candidate for the transition to Cloud Power.
  14. 14. When should I move my business to the cloud?
  15. 15. Once you decide to make the move to cloud- based computing, the time to transition is sooner rather than later.
  16. 16. like, right now.
  17. 17. If you are already running a server- based, on-site system, the transition to the cloud can be made gradually, a few users at a time.
  18. 18. This will allow every member of your team to adjust and adapt over time, helping to prevent glitches.
  19. 19. If, on the other hand, this will be your first move into server-type computing, using Microsoft servers rather than your own, the transition should be made by the entire team collectively.
  20. 20. Transition from on-site IT solutions gradually to avoid potential problems
  21. 21. Transition to cloud-based server solutions as a team if you do not currently rely on in-house solutions
  22. 22. The sooner you make the transition to cloud power, the sooner you gain access to the most versatile server technologies available today
  23. 23. Which cloud- based service is the best for my business?
  24. 24. The particular Microsoft cloud-based service you choose will depend upon the needs of your organization;
  25. 25. ...the level of functionality you seek,
  26. 26. ...the amount of data storage you need,
  27. 27. and whether or not you are looking for an alternative to purchasing the Office suite of productivity tools for each of your users.
  28. 28. Each offering from Microsoft has advantages and it is even possible to mix and match from among the three.
  29. 29. Office 365 – beginning at just $4 per month/per user, your organization will have access to every function available…
  30. 30. …within the Office productivity platform rather than repeatedly paying for the software program.
  31. 31. Microsoft SkyDrive – free online storage up to 7GB, with reasonable rates for greater volume
  32. 32. and access to the full complement of Office productivity tools, as well as the free suite of Web Apps.
  33. 33. Windows Azure – for mega-storage and massive computing power in anextremely secure online environment.
