Cloud computing, once used primarily in technology and technology-related businesses, has been increasingly adopted by businesses in non-technology related fields. In fact, one of the sectors that has seen a huge growth in cloud computing adoption over the past several years is education. Educational institutions are rapidly ditching traditional classroom-based learning systems in favor of cloud-based systems and strategies. It is estimated that between 2017 and 2021, the cloud computing market in education will grow at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of at least 26%.
Without a doubt, cloud-based technology is changing the way the modern business world operates. As this technology grows and evolves, small to medium sized businesses (SMBs) are reaping the benefits.
Cloud computing opened up an entirely new realm of possibility for information technology. In the past, businesses were dependent solely on on-premise servers to handle their data storage and usage needs. With the cloud, onsite data hosting is no longer a necessity. Instead, companies can now move a majority of their IT processes offsite, which is a dream for managing backup and disaster recovery. After all, in the instance that your business’s server is lost in a fire, flood or breach, onsite BDR is as good as gone. But what do you do when part of your IT department is suited for the cloud, and the other segment of your data must stay onsite? Businesses that need to find a happy medium between cloud and onsite storage benefit from cloud hosting.
