Get back on your feet with the cloud

The cloud can do a lot more for our SMBs than cuts costs, provided they tune into its potential as a disaster-aversion and business continuity tool.

Almost half of Australian’s two million small to medium businesses aren’t using cloud computing or its in-house IT equivalent, server virtualisation. That’s a key finding of the 2012 Symantec Disaster Preparedness Survey, a study released this week which surveyed 100 small and medium businesses in Australia and New Zealand, among a global sample of more than 2,000 SMBs.

The survey also shows that by turning their back on the cloud and virtualisation, small businesses are depriving themselves of powerful tools that could help ameliorate natural disasters or other sources of business interruption.
