One of our partners recently wrote a great article on moving your business and moving to the cloud. We thought we'd share it with you.
Why is it a good time to consider a cloud solution while you are planning a move? Here are factors that you need to consider for your move:
Do I need a server room or closet? Utilities? Back up power?
How much equipment do I need to move? Do I need new servers? Does my current system allow for future growth that my space allows?
What type of Internet bandwidth is needed and is a static IP address needed?
Can I reduce my office space/lease costs by allowing employees to work remotely?
Business continuity – How will I keep my email flowing during the move?
Kim Walker, cloud expert with Franklin Moves, says “Everywhere you turn people are talking about “the cloud”. Have you been thinking about a cloud solution but now that you are planning a move you put it off? You might think it is too much to handle at once – and you would be right, but you may be able to move to a cloud solution in advance of your physical move and have a win-win situation to help keep your business up and running and minimize the businesses downtime.
