The benefits of using cloud services in North Queensland:
- Reduce Information Technology overheads:
- 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
- Software upgrades are managed in many cases by the service provider
- Greater data security. With data stored on other servers in different locations, there is contingency in the event of a natural disaster, power failure or other issue.
