Guide To The Small Business Cloud

Startups

Small Business Cloud

Trepidation is inherently attached to anything that involves change and especially if it involves new technologies. SMBs are incredibly vulnerable to this fear and rightfully so. The wrong security breach can incapacitate a small startup for good whereas larger enterprises can reboot their operations due to the financial stability of shareholders.

Gordon Tan contributed an article called Five Reasons Why SMBs Fear The Cloud and here are some of the major reasons that prevent SMBs from moving forward.

  1. I don’t know what Cloud Computing is
  2. It’s not cost effective
  3. My data will not be secure
  4. My system will run slower
  5. The Cloud Service Provider might fail

The Positive

On the flip side to all the fear, there is evidence that SMB cloud adoption is continuing to increase.  Despite any uncertainties, the opportunity to save money gives way to any shadowy doubts of the potential security risks.  Below is an infographic provide by the NJ Institute Of Technology which provides a quick cloud refresher for small businesses.
