SMB and Startups face tough challenges compared to Enterprise clients. SMB and Startups have limited resources, limited funding, limited timeline and limited capital. Overall, they are on a thin line between failure and success. Apart from all these challenges, SMB and Startups should consider of having one major advantage is Cloud Computing. This helps their limited capabilities to grow and reach their goals and targets by incorporating the groundbreaking technology provided by the Cloud Computing. I would like to discuss these cutting edge Cloud Computing benefits that may help SMB and Startups to run the business more efficiently and effectively.
Ease to operate the business
Cloud computing allows to bring inventory management, point-of-sale, order tracking and e-commerce into a single application. Even collaboration tools like Teams, Zoom and other open-source tools help to manage and operate the business in ease. Team has a flexibility to work and operate remotely, anywhere, anytime. This allows flexibility in operations of business just because SMBs and Startups are moving to Cloud computing.
Disaster Recovery and Assistance
One of the major concerns the SMBs and Startups have is to run the business 24×7 without failure and if there are any hiccups, then we need to provide a Disaster Recovery site, which is very easily provided by the Cloud Computing. Cloud computing continuously allows to sync the data between the live site and Disaster Recovery site and the switching can happen in instant. Client will not even realize that they are working on Disaster Recovery site. Fail-over and Fail-back process is seamless and can be automated as much as possible, which relieves the SMBs and Startups.
Ease to upgrade
One more major advantage of Cloud Computing is by just a few clicks one can upgrade or downgrade and optimize their environment as per the business need. One can add more storage and also automate the process of backing the content.
Always Up and running
Lights for the business can be maintained 24×7/365 days and any issues can be tracked and reported to the service team. Most of this can be automated and provide very good tools to monitor and manage them, reducing the down time nearly to zero. If you find to add any new tools, it is easily available in Cloud Computing with few clicks of the mouse, without disturbing the existing business.
