For up-and-coming small- and mid-sized businesses in the Sunshine State, today’s data management and storage solutions can be of tremendous help. Back in the day, businesses had to manage their bookkeeping by filing physical folders and storing them away in bulky cabinets. Thanks to cloud computing technology, it is now possible for businesses to store and manage their data in a secure location that’s accessible from anywhere in the world. Forbes tech contributor Joe McKendrick talks about some of the benefits small and mid-sized businesses can enjoy when they decide to switch to the cloud. First, having on-demand cloud services allows businesses to try new product concepts or designs that can be set up in little to no time at reduced costs. Business owners can also adopt tried-and-tested business models available in the cloud which, in turn, opens up new possibilities for molding their very own business models.

Data storage devices can be rather fragile. After all, tornadoes and powerful storms can level business structures and destroy most, if not all, of a company’s main storage servers. In addition, studies have shown that only about half of businesses are able to resume operations following such a disruption.
In most cases, damage to property can result in severe data loss, which is a leading reason behind the closure of many businesses. For this reason, businesses would do well to work closely with a reliable network support firm that can help them come up with disaster recovery plans.

According to a 2012 report by security company Symantec, half of recorded attacks went after companies with less than 2,500 employees. In addition, those with fewer than 250 employees are increasingly becoming targets. For every breach, over 600,000 identities are left open to further cyber-attacks. SMEs in Orlando should be aware just how vulnerable they can be. In June 2011, the hacktivist network Anonymous declared war on the city over the arrest of members of an anti-poverty feeding group. Distributed denial-of-service (DDOS) attacks hit several Orlando-related sites such as Mayor Buddy Dyer's campaign website and Orlando Florida Guide.

Cloud storage systems are now gaining widespread acceptance among various industries as the need to produce, reproduce, and store digital data becomes more of a norm than a simple choice a business or organization can live without. Even medical practices and health care professionals could make use of this process.
It is inevitable that medical practitioners have started to embrace cloud computing. After all, it makes sorting and accessing patient files much easier. As a result, doctors are able to provide efficient healthcare to all their patients.
