Simplify your IT Physical servers require significant resources to configure, manage and maintain. With a Cloud environment as your file server alternative, configuration time is negligible and management of users and settings can all happen from a simplified web portal. Plus, as an added bonus, Cloud packages such as Office 365 include automatic updates for many of your software applications, so there's no need to engage IT resource to roll-out upgrades.

Reduce Costs With a dedicated file server, you're always paying for maximum power. If you're running resource-intensive applications like SQL server and Exchange servers in particular, you're looking at a big bill. But with a Cloud environment, you simply pay for what you use. Costs directly reflect demand and as you need more or less, the Cloud will scale with you. In a small business, being able to manage IT operations as a variable cost rather than a fixed capital expense can have a significant effect on your bottom line.

Globalise your Workforce Put your business in the Cloud and it suddenly becomes much more accessible. Your staff can access your central file share, your collaboration spaces and their email anywhere there is an internet connection. This gives you the flexibility to offer work-from-home benefits to your employees and ensures that staff in geographically dispersed offices or mobile staff out in the field can all stay unified and connected. With a physical file server set-up, your staff - and you as the business owner - are tied to your desks. Put your business in the Cloud and it suddenly becomes much more accessible.

Reduce Risk If you're running a physical server at present, chances are you back-up to an external hard drive once in a blue moon and leave it in the glove box of your car. Sound familiar? We thought so. Many small businesses simply don't have the time or resources to back up their data as regularly or as effectively as they should. This leaves a lot of risk attached to your server as theft, natural disaster or hardware malfunction can leave you suddenly without your important documents. With Office 365, your data is continuously backed-up without you having to think about it.
