More and more business is being conducted in the cloud. According
to a study by Gartner, worldwide cloud services are projected to grow at
17.5% this year. That is aggressive growth and there are not many indicators
that this trend will reverse any time soon. Cloud services have many benefits,
such as the reduction in capital infrastructure investments, less time to
maintain cloud systems and of course, high availability. Most cloud solutions offer guaranteed uptime
and access from different types of devices, whether it be a traditional
computer, tablet or smart phone. The
critical component to accessing business information in the cloud becomes the
connection. If your Internet connection
is down, so is access to your information.
Having redundancy or a backup plan for your connection is now an
important consideration for those companies dependent on the cloud.
