Last month, the Commerce Department announced that the United States exceeded government estimates of a 1.7% growth rate in GDP in the second quarter of 2013 by achieving a GDP growth rate of 2.5%. Because of the improving economy, small businesses can begin to think about the growth and enhancement of their companies rather than reducing or eliminating non-essential costs.
However, though small businesses aren’t singularly focused on cost-efficiency anymore, it’s still in their best interest to switch to IronOrbit Hosted Desktops and Hosted Applications, even though many small businesses are initially drawn to our hosted solutions because they only cost a low, flat monthly fee and don’t require the purchase of any on-site servers or the hiring of any extra on-premise personnel. That’s because IronOrbit hosted solutions do more than just reduce the hardware and payroll costs of small businesses; they also support the growth and stability of small businesses by:
- Increasing productivity. With IronOrbit Hosted Desktops and Application Hosting, employees can access their files and applications from anywhere and with any Internet-connected device (including desktops, laptops, thin clients, tablets, and smartphones). This enables employees to be just as productive at home (or anyplace else where they have Internet access) as they are at the office. With what they save from switching to IronOrbit hosted solutions, small businesses can also increase their productivity even further by adding manpower (i.e., hiring more employees) and purchasing faster and more effective applications.
- Increasing IT security and reliability. The damage caused by data breaches and downtime is primarily financial, but they also decrease productivity and disrupt a business’s continuity and stability. IronOrbit prevents data loss and outages from occurring with our Orbital Security System, which includes physical and environmental (redundant HVAC, fire suppression systems, biometric palm readers, and 24x7x365 closed-circuit video monitoring in our datacenters), operational (access control and audit trail of IronOrbit personnel), and logical and system (firewall, IPS/IDS, antivirus, spam blocker, patch management, and content filter) security features and backup and disaster recovery (with backups performed daily, server snapshots performed weekly, and an RPO of four hours and an RTO of 12 hours).
- Decreasing hassles and distractions. Small businesses not only don’t have to purchase any on-site servers or hire any extra on-premise IT personnel when they sign up for IronOrbit Cloud Hosting and Application Hosting, they also don’t have to manage, maintain, or secure any of the hosted solutions’ hardware or software. With IronOrbit hosted solutions, small businesses can set their focus on attracting customers and earning revenue and let IronOrbit handle the management and maintenance of their IT solutions.
