What does a cloud computing consultancy do?

Cloud computing is a set of resources on a virtual platform that can be shared by electronic devices connected to the Internet, where it is possible to distribute software, information and data.

This is a technology that works online and uses platform, storage space or processing power for the files, with all the backup done automatically. In addition, it does not take up space on devices (computers, smartphones) and reduces the risk of cyber attacks.

This function must be performed by a trained professional, a consultant who will identify the best computing platform for your business model and guide ways of use and application, streamlining the implementation process.
