    • Hardware and software maintenance will in most cases become the responsibility of the company providing cloud services
    • Backups are managed and maintained safely¬†off-site
    • Reduction in electricity ¬†(no local servers or air conditioning to maintain)
    • Minimal IT support with hardware and software maintained by the service provider
