It wasn’t too long ago that the word “cloud” was exclusive to those billowy white puffs of vapour that live in the sky. Today, advances in technology have afforded us all the ability to communicate, conduct business and even entertain ourselves using the internet. As a result, a new definition of “cloud” has arisen. And while most of us grew up requiring numerous pieces of hardware to store data, today, we can happily depend on the “cloud” for that and more!
Earlier this week, in fact, MeloTel celebrated a pretty special milestone. With the better part of a decade as Canada’s Hosted Company under our belt, we finally declared full independence of any hardware of any kind. As a result, we are now officially a 100% cloud-based solution provider! This past Monday, we officially made the switch for our very last web-hosting customer.
As a completely independent service provider, MeloTel has officially closed our last remaining physical data centre and will move forward working 100% over the cloud. This allows for great flexibility for our fluctuating bandwidth demands. It also enables us to quickly address bandwidth increase requests, from our customers, that are based on their growing and ever-changing needs as well.
Cloud-based solutions are also excellent in the world of disaster recovery. They provide “storage space” that enables entrepreneurs to back up their data so that it can be relocated in the event of a computer crash or malfunction. In the past, a computer on the fritz often meant the loss of immense amounts of important data. Today, the cloud provides a practically endless supply of storage space that will never go missing.
Working over the cloud also provides business owners with never-available-before mobility. Cloud computing literally lets you work from anywhere in the world in much the same way you would if you were working in your home office. As long as you have an internet connection, you can be at work. And you’re not restricted by the device you choose to use, whether it’s a laptop, tablet, smartphone or desktop computer!
It’s the mobility offered by cloud-based solutions that makes us so proud, here at MeloTel, to be a cloud-based solution provider. It not only allows you to work from remote locations all over the planet, but it helps you to expand your business in ways you once couldn’t imagine. Even when it comes to hiring employees, cloud-based solutions destroy the barriers of physical locations.
You can now hire workers in foreign countries as long as they have internet connections to work with. MeloTel’s VoIP-based Commercial Phone Services can have you set up with extensions for employees working abroad who can be reached by your customers as easily as if they were working in the office right next to you. Among many other benefits, you eliminate the need for an expanded office space and your employee doesn’t have to worry about travel expenses.
