What Is The Cloud?
What is Cloud Computing?
In Cloud Computing, a company will take your service and place it outside your organisation’s firewall, and on a shared server. You can use this service via the Internet, instead of via your own company’s hard drive.
This shared Cloud infrastructure is made up of large clusters of systems that are connected together. The power of these systems is boosted by the use of virtualisation technologies.
Cloud Computing enables the supply of software as a service, rather than a product. This allows companies to keep their costs down by paying per user, rather than needing to meet the cost of an expensive licence fee.
This system means that we can also offer Cloud document management and matter management software to store your files, documents and to manage your legal information effectively.

Why use The Cloud?
Lower the costs of physical hardware and on-site storage facilities needed to house physical servers. There are no such costs associated with hosting your services in The Cloud.
Open up the possibilities of remote and mobile working for your company’s employees. All they need to get started is an internet connection and mobile device to access the services.
You have the potential to lower your company’s carbon footprint by moving from a physical to digital resource. Furthermore, the amount of energy needed to carry out an action in The Cloud is often far less when compared to one needed on-site.
