What are Cloud Services?

Cloud computing is the delivery of computing services including servers, storage, databases, networking, software and more which are hosted on the internet. This is also known as the cloud. Cloud services offer you faster innovation, flexible resources and cost-effective solutions. You can lower business costs by only paying for the cloud services that you use allowing you to run more effectively.

What are the Benefits?

There are many benefits to adopting a cloud computing approach. These include some of the following:

Save on Business Costs

By switching to the cloud, you can save your business significant amounts of money as you will be saving on the cost of hardware. You also don’t have to pay for space, power, physical security, insurance, ongoing maintenance or air-conditioning for your hardware.

Scalable Resources

By adopting cloud services, you only pay for the resources that you need. If you require extra resources due to an unexpected spike, you can instantly increase your computing capacity. There is no need to pay for a bigger package or server.


Cloud computing gives your business more flexibility by giving you the choice of what cloud services you need and use. It also allows staff to access files both in and out of the office enabling flexible working outside of your premises.


Cloud service providers are continually updating their technology to meet the demands of businesses. As a result of this, the cloud offers high-performance technology including powerful CPUs and extremely fast SSD drives.

Private Cloud

private cloud is made up of computing resources that are exclusively used by one business or organisation. It can be physically located at your premises or hosted by a third-party service provider.
