5 myths that prevent working in clouds

Working in the clouds in modern realities is a driver for business development during crisis. Cloud technologies can save up to half of your office staff and maintenance costs. Yet we quite often come up with belief of executives that cloud work is insecure, complicated and confusing. That's why today we will deal with 5 fears and misbeliefs that prevent managers from breaking up their headache today. 

 1. What if Internet connection is lost? 

Often company executives refuse to consider cloud technology because internet is needed to work online, and the connection might break. But tell me honestly, when was the last time you could do 5 or 10 minutes without Internet at work? Modern business processes and communications are pierced by Internet. You will not be able to work with your local infrastructure without Internet as well. Internet penetration in Russia has increased for 4 times in 10 years. It's difficult to find a place without the Internet. But if Internet connection is not very fast, cloud workspaces can accelerate work in several times. All you have to do is connect in 1 click to the remote workplace - and the connection there is quite speedy. 

 2. It is not safe! 

Think about how often employees send important information through public drives and messengers just because they can 't get access to their desktop at any time of the day. How likely do you think your system administrator will be able to pull information from the server and share it with third parties without your knowledge or consent? It's enough to shut down your laptop or turn off your computer and instantly your data won't become available even to the regulatory authorities. You'll have time to react. And business won't break up even in such an emergency. It turns out that clouds are safer and more reliable than local servers. 

 3. We're already working in the cloud in the local office

 A real cloud should allow you to run smoothly even if the server has broken down, even if the power has been cut off. All you call a cloud in the office isn't it indeed. And if you want to make a reliable "office cloud" - you have to spend money at least as a small data center - which is not reasonable in terms of non-core business spending. 

4. Are clouds expensive?

 It is not true. Your local network costs consist of buying and maintaining servers, drives and spare parts, buying software licenses, and salary of IT managers, including taxes. Such expenses make up to good amounts. And it is impossible to cut them instantly in difficult times, as well as to increase workspaces instantly during the growth phase. Cloud technology cuts workspaces costs threefold owing to scale and automation. In Desktop.Rent you don't even need an IT manager. The boss can manage employees' workspaces from the smartphone himself or delegate it to his assistant.

5. It's very difficult to move your data. 

Many people say there are archives, databases that are very difficult to move somewhere else. No one constantly uses all the archives at once with large amount of data - you can transfer the archives step by step. Moreover modern technologies and Internet speed are such that in one weekend it is possible to transfer working data of a large company to the cloud. Medium and small companies will be able to move active business data in one day. Moreover, in Desktop.Rent files can be quickly and conveniently uploaded to a remote workplace through the application directly from a smartphone.

 We suggest to clear your minds of all these misbeliefs immediately and start cutting unnecessary costs today with a single button with Desktop.Rent.
