When your cloud service goes down, will your company be able to continue doing business as usual?
When you move part of your small business to the cloud, you’re giving the cloud provider control over some of your company’s data. You’re sending your data over the public Internet and storing it on a third-party server. You trust that the data you store on your provider’s network will be safe and remain accessible.
