In the current modern times, the success of any business (small, medium or large) is directly related to the capabilities of its IT infrastructure.

The need for information technology is always growing within any business. This need often overloads the physical IT infrastructure of any company, and the IT team becomes very stretched. Using Private Cloud Hosting provider, instead of on-premises physical infrastructure, gives a business several significant advantages. Following are some of the major advantages:

1 – Private Cloud: Reduced starting costs

The costs of the purchase of equipment, its installation and continuous support not only greatly affect the budget of any enterprise, but often becomes a showstopper in the development of IT infrastructure, and therefore the development of the whole company. Outsourcing to a private cloud hosting provider, companies will have the ability to host their software solutions in the Cloud, saving them on expensive hardware costs, and most important, the recurring management and continuous upgrade, support and starting cost.

2 – Increase in flexibility and speed of implementation of IT solutions

Adopting a Private Cloud and Managed Cloud Service provider, companies can quickly adapt their IT infrastructure to their current needs to fit their own business.

This will add flexibility and efficiency to a company’s IT solutions, and save a lot of money, since it will no longer need to reserve unnecessary equipment and human resources not needed.

The flexibility of a Private Cloud will allow a company to rapidly adjust it to its more important projects, and not abandon them, because of the cost of purchase of new equipment or the labor cost for implementation, add to it the long-term maintenance. Accelerating the implementation of new IT solutions increases the efficiency of any business.

3 – Purchase and support of equipment – this is no more a company’s headache

Using a private cloud infrastructure, a company will save a tremendous amount on hiring the highly qualified and expensive employees who were previously engaged in the purchase of equipment, its continuous support, and ensuring network accessibility. Now companies will be able to concentrate on more important strategic tasks.

By delegating responsibility for the operability of IT equipment to a Managed Cloud Provider, companies get the opportunity to concentrate on their core business and increase their effectiveness.

Wouldn’t it just be better and more cost-effective to simply hire a full-time in-house team of IT programmers? Unlike what most Small and Medium Enterprise owners believe, this is false. For these companies, finding the right in-house team and retaining them long-term is very difficult. On top of this, running an entire IT department can get expensive. You need to hire the right talent and ensure they are adequately compensated and continuously trained on the latest technologies. Unfortunately, this isn’t always possible in a small organization but it’s important not to disregard IT altogether in that case (which is what many SMEs do – we continuously catch growing companies use Word and Excel to gather and manage their sensitive data).

Risks involved with Outdated SystemsEver wonder why your business can’t seem to grow or why your employees can’t seem to find the time to complete all their tasks before deadline? It may be time to reassess your outdated IT infrastructure and management system to find ways to improve your business processes and increase productivity. It’s common for many small to mid-size businesses to delay upgrades or replacements of IT systems due to budget cuts, economic pressures, other priorities, lack of time, etc. We are aware it does require a lot of effort from everyone on board and a budget that will need to be set aside for such a project, however by retaining your outdated systems can cause more harm than good.

Be Prepared for Company GrowthIt’s always difficult to know what your business needs in terms of IT software without having seen or tested other systems. On top of this, we are all creatures of habit; once we get used to working a certain way, we do not question it, as it becomes second nature. However, this can be detrimental to a business. Only once a company begins to experience growth, expansion or a rapid sales increase, do they realize there is too much inefficiency that can prevent them from growing. More often than not, it is those companies that have not upgraded or changed their legacy system in years, or have no system at all, that will be affected the most. Read more
