Reduce cost, increase flexibility

What is Cloud Computing?

cloud computingCloud computing places all of your data and applications on hardware in a data centre, which you connect to with an internet connection. This removes the need for you to have internal data storage equipment and servers. All you need is a device and an internet connection. It makes no difference if you are in the office, at home or connected to a public hot-spot – you can continue working as you move around.

As all the actual computing is done on the server side in a data-centre, so you don’t need to have powerful devices in the office, at home and for travelling in order to use your memory intensive applications at all times.

Our Cloud FAQs page should alleviate any concerns you may have.
