Loud, power hungry, dependant physical servers are being replaced by hosted solutions at a rapid rate. Businesses were reliant on this single piece of hardware and although built to last, if something went wrong then office operations could be thrown into turmoil. In contrast, cloud servers are hosted on fully redundant hardware and designed for high availability with the ability to call on extra resources if required.
Choosing Hosted Office is the best way to ensure your computer network is secure. It is in the cloud providers interests to obtain and implement the latest security methods to keep all their clients safe, including you. Hosted cloud servers also centrally manage all the software solutions on the platform. This gives companies the ability to add, remove or edit users with relative ease and with extra hardware resources always available, you will never be left wanting in times of rapid expansion.
A new physical server, made up of enterprise grade hardware and all the relevant software licensing, can cost tens of thousands of dollars to plan, procure and deploy. It then also has to be managed. In a hosted office scenario, there is no need to purchase the hardware and software upfront. Forget hardware, you are allocated your own virtual environment on a secure network and the software can largely be provided as a service, so it can be utilised on a monthly basis as needed.
