In a recent blog, Dave McCary looked at some of the reasons why business is turning to the cloud.
In his view, it is down to risk and insurance.
With cloud computing, the provider absorbs all the financial risk and provides the technical expertise. While their clients simply “turn on the tap” to get access to all the computer power they need.
He believes there is an even deeper answer to why companies are moving to the cloud – insurance.
For a monthly fee, clients can purchase an “insurance policy” in the form of a cloud service agreement. This guarantees that you can operate your company in the event of any disaster—whether it’s equipment failure, a power outage, or a natural catastrophe.
