More companies and individuals are moving to cloud technology than ever—and many businesses are taking advantage of cloud computing specifically. Doing so can make for some big efficiencies and help centralize systems so employees are better able to access and use information related to your business. With that in mind, it’s important that you’re using the best tech on the hardware end of things to ensure you’re really getting the most out of cloud computing. Fiber optics are a great option when it comes to cloud computing and can help businesses streamline their workflow in new, powerful ways.
The Right Speeds – More Bandwidth
Getting to all that information kept in the cloud requires a quick enough internet connection that doesn’t suffer from periodic interruptions or downtime. Since fiber optics move information at the speed of light, it goes a long way in making cloud solutions far more effective. Fiber optic cables have such a high bandwidth capacity that you don’t need to worry about huge packages of data you may be moving around via cloud computing, making it an ideal solution for any business that has collaborative efforts or remote work situations. Bandwidth growing and growing is a certainty in today’s computing environment. Why limit the amount of bandwidth you’re using with copper?
While more businesses are turning to cloud computing than ever, there’s also more concerns about privacy and security. We live in an age where there seem to regularly be issues regarding data leaks or hacking attempts and that’s a reasonable thing for business owners to be worried about. However, fiber optics make for a more secure network and in some instances would even require someone to physically get ahold of the cables to pry into your information. Traditional copper cables just aren’t as safe when it comes to protecting data, a big deal for anyone interested in cloud technology.
Finally, severe weather can affect traditional copper cables and extreme temperatures could even lead to downtime. During natural disasters, companies who have fiber optics are more likely to retain their connections to cloud data centers and still access their work. While that’s an extreme example, it still speaks to the durability of fiber optics and why they set up anyone using cloud computer for success.
