Cloud services come in all guises and the term can be confusing if you’re new to this type of technology. The team at AAG will guide you through choosing the right type of cloud service for your business, optimising efficiency and cost-effectiveness.
One of the main benefits of cloud is its uptime and security. With remotely hosted servers housed in a highly secure, constantly monitored and maintained Data Centre, cloud backup is a reliable, secure place to host your critical backup data. It’s dynamic too, can grow with you, and you only pay for what you use.
AAG’s cloud services use complex end-to-end encryption giving you peace of mind that your data is safe. We use UK- based data centres to help you comply with the DPA and GDPR, and our cloud backup helps to ensure data is resilient in the event of an emergency.
Here are a list of key benefits a business can expect to achieve when adopting cloud infrastructure.
1. Efficiency/cost reduction – By using cloud infrastructure, you don’t have to spend huge amounts of money on purchasing and maintaining equipment. This means you don’t have to invest in hardware, facilities or utilities. You do not even need large IT teams to handle your cloud data centre operations, AAG will manage this for you.
2. Data Security – One of the major concerns of every business, regardless of size and industry, is the security of its data. Data breaches and other cybercrimes can devastate a company’s revenue, customer loyalty and brand positioning.
3. Mobility – Cloud computing allows mobile access to corporate data wherever you are. This is especially important with the increase of remote and home working. Staff can use this feature to keep instantly up-to-date with clients and coworkers whenever they need to.

Frequently Asked Questions
How will access to the cloud be provided?
To access the cloud environment you will need a WIFI connection. You can be working from anywhere.
How secure is my data in the cloud?
Very secure. As long as the right security is in place then your data is safe. You could argue that your data is more secure in the cloud rather than on premise as you are eliminating the risk of being reliant on your physical infrastructure. This means that business interruptions such as power cuts and hardware failure, or sudden lockdown, will have no impact on your data or its security.
What downtime can be expected when moving to the cloud?
There is no downtime. We can build the new environment alongside your existing infrastructure. We ensure this is thoroughly tested, prior to moving your users over to the new environment.
