What is it? And how is it different?

Cloud based computing is a solution involving a network of remote servers hosted on the Internet that allows your business to store, manage and access data and programs over the Internet rather than through a local server or computer hard drive.

Cloud computing can empower a mobile workforce, become a critical part of a disaster recovery plan, and make the day-to-day running of your business more efficient and mobile.

Improved accessibility

With cloud services at their fingertips, employees can work from almost any location. They can access important files, data, documents and IT tools from a range of devices from almost any connected location. Providing they have the required bandwidth, it is possible to work online, replicating the office environment and ensuring employees can work as productively as possible. 

Reduced Costs

Cloud Computing provides a cost effective alternative by eliminating the capital expense associated with a traditional network, save on licensing fees and reduce the costs of system and software upgrades; as the provider will manage hardware, applications and bandwidth.

Business Continuity

A cloud solution will ensure your data is backed up and protected in a secure location. Should there be a fire, technology outage, or severe weather incident that prevents people from making it into the office, employees can simply log on remotely, access their work desktop , and continue as they would have done on any normal working day, minimising any downtime and loss of productivity.


1 laptop is stolen every 53 seconds*

With cloud based computing a stolen laptop is not the disaster it seems. You haven't lost your data as all documents and files are saved remotely to the cloud, and no one can access the data as a username and password are required to get into the cloud where your data is stored.


Automatic Cloud Computing Software Updates

In 2010, UK companies spent 18 working days per month managing on-site security alone*.  With cloud computing solutions Opus IT will provide all the server maintenance, including security updates.


Improved Collaboration

Give your employees the ability to communicate and share information easily regardless of location. With cloud based solutions, employees can work on documents and shared apps simultaneously as if they were in the same room.
