The Cloud is a centralized location on the internet that stores data, making it accessible anytime, anywhere, from any connected device. Businesses—both large and small—have embraced the cloud because it has a number of benefits. Even financial institutions and banks are also using cloud services, in order to reach and serve ever more global customers. The cloud-based business allows employees and customers to interact on a regular basis, no matter where they are located on the globe. Some of the benefits of the service are:

• Information Sharing - Whether you have in-house staff, or a team spread across a distance, the cloud makes sharing data effortlessly. Once you have your data backed up, sharing files can be as easy as sending a link, eliminating the cumbersome process of emailing large
