FAQs

  • Why is cloud computing essential?

    Cloud computing has become essential for many businesses worldwide to meet an increasingly mobile workforce's access needs. It’s no surprise, really; with the growth of remote workforces, the increased adoption of BYOD policies, hot-desking and shrinking office spaces, an alternative to the traditional in-office server was inevitable. Cloud services in Australia aren’t just an optional extra in the modern workplace anymore; they’re essential.  Today, cloud services and solutions can promote collaborative workplaces by developing a flexible, cost-efficient and scalable cloud infrastructure. It gives your teams access to data and programs over the internet, ensuring they can take advantage of instant yet secure access wherever they are. Additionally, cloud solutions offer substantially more storage while taking up substantially less office space.  Cloud solutions have other implications, too. They’re a significant factor in protecting your business against threats like ransomware while also playing key roles in disaster recovery and backup recovery. Physical servers can be broken, stolen, corrupted or hacked, but utilising cloud storage can also help add an extra layer of security to your business. So today, cloud backup is an essential tool for any company that takes its business seriously. 

  • How does cloud data storage work?

    Cloud services are a type of computing service in which the service provider makes resources available to you over the internet. These resources can be used to run and store all your company's programs and data, allowing users to access their work from anywhere. This enables them to access, use and share data from wherever they are, even when they're overseas. Cloud environments are becoming increasingly important due to our mobile workforce. The trick is to decide whether you need a private cloud, public cloud or hybrid cloud solution to meet your needs. The Missing Link can assess your business needs and make a recommendation on the best cloud solution, virtual machines, networking, data storage and Software as a Service (SaaS) to create a streamlined cloud environment. We can also manage the installation of your new cloud solution and equip your team to access and optimise your cloud environment from day one.

  • What are the benefits of cloud services?

    Your cloud environment will help your business' digital transformation as it provides your team with instant yet secure access to your system from wherever they are, whenever they need it. Additionally, it is cost-effective because you only pay for the cloud services you use. Importantly, your cloud computing solution will enable your business to scale elastically by right sizing your IT resources when needed from the best geographic location. With Software as a Service (SaaS), your cloud environment gives team members access to up-to-date software when they need it. It also provides the confidence that files will always be safe as data is backed-up, easily recoverable and can be mirrored at multiple redundant sites on the cloud provider's infrastructure. The vendors that we partner with at The Missing Link (Microsoft Azure and Amazon Web Services) are aligned with our own broad set of policies, technologies and controls to protect your data, applications and infrastructure against potential threats.
