3 of the Most Common Misconceptions About the Cloud

b2ap3_thumbnail_cloud_confusing_business_owners_400.jpgDespite the clear advantages that cloud computing offers to modern businesses, some organizations are hesitant to incorporate it into their IT infrastructure. Due to the cloud’s fairly recent insurgence, it’s natural to feel some sort of anxiety toward cloud integration. However, these fears aren’t necessarily warranted, and some can directly influence your ability to grow and expand.

According to Thomas LaRock of NetworkComputing, there are generally three reasons why some business owners are concerned about the cloud:

  1. They don’t understand it.
  2. They feel they don’t have enough control over their data.
  3. They fear the cloud might grow obsolete.

Lighthouse Technology Solutions wants to help your business get over its fear of the cloud, so we’ll begin by explaining why these three common misconceptions are understandable, yet unnecessary. This is made especially true by our managed cloud services.

If People Don’t Understand It, They Fear It
This is something that most people struggle with on a daily basis. Why not take a different route to work? You might get lost and arrive at the office late. This fear is why people avoid the unknown, and the primary reason that some businesses tend to avoid the cloud. It might just feel too risky. These business owners seem to have forgotten what it means to run a business; taking risks. Not being open to change can negatively affect your business when it comes time to integrate new solutions and policies.

Unlike other companies that might not explain things thoroughly, Lighthouse Technology Solutions provides complete transparency. We can walk you through the numerous cloud solutions out there and equip you with the one that best suits your unique needs.

If Business Owners Can’t Control It, It Must Be Unpredictable
Some business owners might be hesitant to integrate a cloud solution because they feel that they’ll be relinquishing control over their data. This isn’t necessarily true. Depending on the cloud solution implemented, the business owner can have as little, or as much, control over their cloud solution as they want. For instance, the public cloud handles hosting and security, and there are private clouds which can be hosted in-house which give you much more control over your cloud in exchange for responsibility. If neither sound optimal, a hybrid cloud can be integrated that takes advantage of the efficiency of the public cloud and the security of the private cloud.

Lighthouse Technology Solutions knows all about the various advantages and disadvantages of the different types of cloud solutions. We’ll work with you to find the best solution that meets the demands of your business.

It’s Just a Fad That Will Fade with Time
Then, of course, there are the business owners who don’t quite see how revolutionary the cloud is, or think that it’s just a fad that will eventually go out of style without significantly affecting the business world. The problem with this theory is that it already has significantly benefited businesses around the world by allowing for easy, affordable storage, application access, and computing in general, that can be accessed by a variety of different devices.

It’s safe to say that cloud computing isn’t going anywhere, and it can only grow more impressive as time goes on. It’s still a developing technology that continues to expand and improve. If increased access to corporate data is wrong, we don’t want to be right.

So, as you can see, businesses have no reason to be concerned over the cloud. In fact, they should embrace it and use it as a chance to expand and grow their bottom line. To get started with cloud computing, give Lighthouse Technology Solutions a call at 703-533-LTSI (5874).
