Cloud Technology Is Helping the Environment

Cloud Technology Helps the Environment by Lowering Greenhouse Gas Emissions

Did you know the cloud is environmentally friendly? I’m not talking about the rain clouds watering our crops. I’m talking about cloud technology hosting valuable IT solutions to companies all over the world. Cloud technology is lowering their carbon footprint and energy consumption.

Cloud Technology and NatureHow does cloud technology lower a company’s carbon footprint? Cloud technology provides software and data storage over the Internet via server space. A company is often troubled by the task of hosting its own on-site servers to access their data and software. When a company switches to cloud technology for software and data storage, it lowers its need for on-site servers. The energy and space that would have otherwise gone toward those extra servers reduces the overall energy consumption.

When companies host their own in-house servers they suffer from unused computing power. No company is running 100 percent of their computing power all the time. The cloud lets companies use what they need and avoids unnecessary energy consumption. A company never uses more than they require at any moment.

Does switching to cloud servers just shift the problem? Cloud data centers work to lower their environmental impact by using efficient hardware. Their cloud technology strives to be the most eco-friendly available and it does not just mask the problem. Cloud technology allows for flexibility in energy consumption and works with eco friendly hardware.

Studies say that by 2020, utilizing cloud technology can result in carbon reductions equivalent to 200 million barrels of oil. As companies switch more of their data and software over to the cloud, they contribute to the environment by lowering their carbon footprint.

How To Grow Your Small Business With the Cloud

Here’s An Idea: The Cloud Can Be Utilized To Grow Your Small Business

The digital age has come with many innovations. One innovation that can raise your small business to the next level is the cloud. The cloud can be utilized to drive down the cost of running information technology and bring many benefits through hosted software.

Small Business GrowthWhile building an IT infrastructure is essential to modern small businesses, it is also expensive. The benefits are often overshadowed by the price tag on the technology. The cloud promotes growth for small businesses by removing many of the costs involved in building information solutions. The cloud allows small businesses the access to servers and maintenance that would otherwise set them back. There are many benefits to moving to a cloud hosted service that can both save money and grow your small business.

Building an IT infrastructure consumes huge amounts of money. Some of the costs that come with that are equipment, maintenance, electricity, storage, and security. These costs can be a huge strain to small businesses. Cloud computing is a solution to lowering the common costs involved in IT.

Equipment is a huge expense for small businesses. Not only does it need to be bought but it also has to be maintained, powered, and protected. To accomplish this, the right people need to be hired. Hiring costs become a huge expense for small businesses, not to mention the employees needed to run your own servers. Small businesses need employees to maintain the equipment and make sure it is running at its most efficient level. The equipment also needs to be kept in a secure location, which comes with the cost of storage and guards.

Small businesses can avoid these costs by utilizing a cloud-hosting provider. For example, Trapp Corp runs its own servers, which it keeps in its own secure facilities. These servers are also maintained and protected from any harm. While it worries about the technology, small businesses are provided with all the software and IT solutions they require. Small businesses are also spared the cost of maintaining and securing facilities.

The cloud not only allows small business IT needs to be met, it also increases productivity. The switch to cloud hosted software allows access from any device with live updates. Small businesses increase collaboration regardless of location. Workers have live access to the data, which allows them to collaborate in a team wherever they are. This lowers the stress small businesses have when employees are out of the office. Cloud services are also incredibly scalable so when your small business begins to grow, the servers can always handle that growth.

Small businesses switching to the cloud greatly decrease their carbon footprint.  While on the cloud, small businesses will only use the serve space they need. Studies say small businesses can reduce carbon emissions by 90% from energy that would otherwise be used by running on-site servers.
