If you’re one of the skeptics holding out on incorporating cloud technology into your business, you’re in the minority. Today, a full 93% of businesses now use the cloud in their day-to-day operations, according to RightScale. Here’s why:

• The cloud increases profits. The nimble, location-flexible nature of the cloud enables lean, remote operation from anywhere in the world, increasing the bottom line of SMBs.
• The cloud boosts efficiency. Without the need for data silos, cloud applications can drastically reduce bottlenecks and failures.
• The cloud saves money. Instead of paying to maintain unused hardware, the cloud allows you to pay low monthly fees, reducing wasted funds.
• The cloud is more secure. Backups are that much easier to implement and access, meaning that your business can be up and running after a data breach in minutes rather than days.
