Because your data will be stored in our centralised backup system, cloud services will also remove the risk of holding your own backups on site. Data encryption and two-factor authentication offers greater privacy and security than traditional servers.

How Do Cloud Services Work?

Companies that host business services on the cloud will maintain a large data centre that provides enough security, storage capacity, and computing power to support their client’s infrastructures. This infrastructure will then be utilised by companies to enable them to access their data any time, and with expert security and safety backups that they would never have access to otherwise.

Can You Access the Cloud Without the Internet?

Unfortunately, one requirement of cloud services is access to the internet. You’ll be able to access local files when not connected and make edits to any files you’ve already downloaded, but these won’t be updated in the cloud until you have access to the internet. This could cause issues if multiple employees are working on the same document simultaneously. 

This can be both a good and a bad thing. With traditional servers, if your servers were to stop working, you would also lose access and none of your employees would be able to get back online until it was fixed. With cloud computing, you can simply move to another location or connect to a working internet connection and you’re back online.
