The cloud is just someone else's computer. Sort of! The cloud is someone else's enterprise-grade, super resilient, highly available, always on, network of computers that you can benefit from and pay only for what you use, usually on a monthly subscription. Email security, hosted VoIP phones systems, file sharing, server backup and monitoring along with accountancy packages are just some examples of the types of cloud based services that we have experience of. Implementing and managing them on a daily basis. By utilising the cloud you could have at least one less server to maintain, patch, backup and replace.
