At one time, cloud based computing seemed to be something unfathomable or not at all safe for a business owner to consider. According to experts, businesses will spend greater than 40 percent more on cloud computing services in 2015 over the roughly 100 billion dollars spent in 2014. Considering how quickly the industry is growing, one has to wonder why are cloud based solutions so popular?
Perhaps the most important facet of cloud computing for business owners is the ability to scale cloud solutions to the requirements of their operations. When business is at a low point and less storage is required, it is not necessary to maintain a large capacity for storage in the event that business grows or increases rapidly. As a business grows, the need for a large cash outlay for computer infrastructure to handle the growth is also redundant since you can easily increase the number of users, the amount of storage and other requirements through your cloud service provider.
