Key Elements Of An Effective Website Optimization14 September 2014
The history of the human race has been defined by a constant striving for development and evolution. It is arguably this trait which has enabled human-beings to develop such a complex and advanced society. However, although striving to better ourselves and develop the nature of our society seems to be an inbuilt characteristic of human beings, a contradictory tendency is also present within many of us.
Resistance to Change
Many human-beings are in fact resistant to change. We like routine, we like the familiar, we like being in the comfort zone, we like being surrounded with things that we are accustomed to. Some psychologists attribute this to the make-up of human biology, arguing that an antiquated section of the brain which dates back millions of years, and is akin to the brains of reptiles, makes human beings vulnerable to primitive fixations such as routine.
Whatever the reasons behind our resistance to change, it can provide us with practical difficulties when encountering new experiences such as an emerging technology. In this regard, cloud computing has had to battle against literally human nature. As this important revolution in computing was initially announced to the world, the advocates and innovators of it had to contend with the usual scare stories and knee-jerk reservations.
It has now been pretty much established that the cloud offers a great deal of functionality to businesses. And far from representing a security or safety risk, in most cases the cloud can even enhance a company’s security. Yet many businesses remain resistant to change for a variety of reasons, effectively cutting off their nose to spite their face.
Apprehension about Cloud Technology
Many businesses can view switching from an on premise setup to a hosted cloud network as an unnecessary hassle. They may be perfectly happy with their existing setup and believe that switching all of their operation to the cloud will merely be a massive headache, that may benefit them, but which will also be founded in complex logistical problems.
This is where TD Web Services comes in. We are extremely experienced at dealing with hosting cloud services for businesses of every conceivable size, and we make the process of switching to the cloud extremely easy for you.
But before making a decision such as this, the question you perhaps need to ask yourself is very simple one. Why change? Why evolve? The most obvious answer to this is that the business landscape in this extremely competitive global workplace is constantly evolving. To stand still in such a marketplace is to invite your competitors to gain a commercial advantage over you.
The Necessity of the Cloud
It is only the businesses that change and evolve to meet the rapidly fluctuating market conditions that will prosper. Those that don’t face the prospect of being swallowed whole. When one considers the capabilities that high-quality cloud hosting, such as those offered by TD Web Services, can offer your business, the reasons for this become extremely clear.
TD Web Services cloud servers offer a powerful blend of dependability, scalability, and ease-of-use in an enterprise-class VMware-based computing environment. This offers your business a level of competing power and storage capacity that was unmaginable previously. Additionally, as cloud computing capabilities have developed, the wider availability of high-end servers has led to the emergence of ‘Private Cloud’ servers. As virtualization becomes more mainstream across both small and medium-sized enterprises, TD Web Services offers you the ability to shore up reliability, expand management options and ensure application performance. The private cloud offers the convenience and power of traditional cloud applications, while enhancing security provisions and flexibility.
There are few businesses today that would not benefit from the Big Data handling capabilities and processing improvement that cloud computing offers. Yet before taking the plunge and opting for such a setup, and facing the change that we human-beings often find somewhat daunting, it is important to take stock of precisely what you are looking for. Trust is a key component of almost all business relationships, and usually the first ninety days with a particular provider can be considered especially important.
TD Web Services’ Expertise and Experience
At TD Web Services we are sensitive to the needs of small businesses, having worked with many in order to migrate them to a cloud-based network. We take customer service extremely seriously, and ensure that our service to you is of the very highest quality possible. From the moment you contact us, we will do everything possible to swiftly resolve any issues that you encounter, and sometimes even proactively resolve them before you even contact us!
We work around the clock to offer expert support and the benefit of our huge experience in the cloud field. And we sincerely believe that this is as much value as a cloud itself. After all, making the decision to switch to the cloud can be big one, and we pride ourselves on making this process as smooth a transition as possible.
