37298498 - cloud computing concept, global computer networkWant to make your IT services smarter, faster and more secure? Cloud technology is the solution your business needs. In fact, the cloud computing market grew by approximately 13.7 percent in 2015, according to Statista. There are undoubtedly countless benefits to cloud computing, but here are some of the most notable:

Flexibility: With cloud computing, you can work on projects in the office and then continue them later at home. No more need to worry about storing or saving individual documents. Everything is accessible online and you can continue where you left off.

Automatic software updates: Tired of spending hours updating your IT systems to the latest software? With cloud computing, your software updates are performed automatically, which will help give you more time to devote to your business.

Disaster recovery: Are you prepared for a potential security breach or natural disaster? The cloud saves all of your files and business programs online so you will be able to access them anywhere even if something goes wrong. Plus, the CloudTech1 team can help create a disaster recovery plan for your business so you’re always prepared.

Save with a flat fee: Spending too much to update to the latest version of Windows or some other application? You can save more when you switch to cloud technology because you will only have to pay an affordable flat fee every month instead of expensive yearly upgrades.
