Benefits of Cloud Hosting
- Low maintenance – when applications are hosted, the software and hardware are the vendor’s responsibility with the client only having to maintain the Internet access. There is no software to have to download, making the application available instantly.
- Affordable – Because there is no need to license software on a “per concurrent user,” “per server,” “per site,” or “per use’ basis, the cost of using an application is reduced a great deal.
- Easy-to-access – Because the data and application software is stored on an Internet server and the data is available to the authorized user once they are logged in, accessing the application is not a problem. People can work from anywhere.
- Cross-compatible – Since the end-user is connecting to a hosted environment, they can connect using a receiver whether they are on a Windows PC, MAC, or Linux operating system.
