Technology changes so fast these days that talk of "moving your business to the cloud" can be daunting for some. However, there are numerous advantages and benefits of moving some or all of your computing to the cloud:
- Predictable cashflow: pay a regularly monthly fee instead of the cycle of expensive hardware and software upgrades.
- Security: your cloud service provider utilises automated software updates and datacentre-grade network hardware as well as physical security systems.

- Scalability: more employees, fewer employees, your cloud service expands or contracts with your needs.
- Environmental benefits: computers generate a lot of heat, so it's greener and more efficient to create many virtual servers in a datacentre than locating actual, physical servers in offices around the country.
