You’ve Got Your Servers In The Cloud, So Why Not Your Documents?

The concept of cloud hosting is more than familiar to most IT professionals these days. First of all we had dumb terminals and mainframes, then the desktop PC arrived and this was quickly followed by servers, server rooms and data centres. Blades and SANs came next with corporate organisations either running their own server rooms or buying space in a data centre. Fast forward to the present day and traditional data centres are rapidly falling out of favour. The cost of storage has fallen sharply over the years and the concept of cloud hosting is now both familiar, practical and cost effective.

The concept of cloud hosting doesn’t have to stop at servers, networking and databases though. As the popularity of cloud applications grows, so the numbers available have increased and this is also true for electronic document management. Why dedicate a server and the resource to support it when you could have a document management system in the cloud?
