The National Institute of Stands and Technology (NIST) has a more comprehensive definition of cloud computing. It describes cloud computing as "a model for enabling ubiquitous, convenient, on-demand network access to a shared pool of configurable computing resources (e.g., networks, servers, storage, applications and services) that can be rapidly provisioned and released with minimal management effort or service provider interaction."

Data Migration on digitalIt frees up staff so they can access your company information from anywhere in the world, so for some businesses, staff can work from home or remotely and this can save office costs and many companies now encourage people to work from home. It saves server space and power consumption too and for large companies this can mean saving thousands of pounds every year on room hire and utility costs.
