Cloud Computing For Small Business

This Infographic is  from formstack.com .Cloud Computing uses the web ,instead of applications and data stored on a single computer terminal or network, cloud services are accessible on the internet in the same manner as online banking and shopping, email and social network sites. . For small businesses, cloud computing hits a particular sweet spot. With cloud services, small businesses reap the benefits of not having to deploy physical infrastructure like file and e-mail servers, storage systems or shrink-wrapped software. Plus, the "anywhere, anytime" availability of these solutions, means hassle-free collaboration between business partners and employees by simply using a browser. In fact, it's not a stretch to say that aside from a locally installed desktop operating system and browser, a lot of today's small business technology needs can be fulfilled almost completely with cloud-based offerings.

Cloud-computing services require no software to purchase and install. This doesn't include a Java plug-in or some other kind of lightweight applet required to use the service.
Cloud-computing fees for businesses are typically subscription-based. The vendors usually charge you on a month-to-month or annual basis. The solutions we feature here are relatively affordable and follow the subscription model.

Another feature of cloud computing is that it's easily scalable. Many of these solutions can work for a business with five employees or 5,000. Cloud-based service is nimble because it grows as your business grows.

So far only an estimated 2% of businesses with fewer than 100 employees are using cloud computing, according to a May 2009 report by Forrester Research.
