Are you ready to migrate from on-premise to the cloud?


There has never been a better time to migrate from on-premise servers to cloud-based IT solutions. With a variety of options available and fast, responsive technology at the touch of a button, it’s no wonder that so many businesses are making the most of cloud-based systems.

If you’re still relying on on-premise servers, then you may be interested to know that migrating to the cloud can lead to lower monthly costs and effortless scalability to help you adapt to your businesses’ changing needs.

Why migrate to cloud-based IT solutions?

We know that for businesses to thrive, they need to have adaptable IT solutions that can change with their needs. There are many reasons why your business may be ready to migrate from an on-premise IT solution to a new cloud-based model.

  • Innovation

New technologies are coming to the market faster than ever before. With on-premise IT servers, it can be difficult to make a business case for upgraded equipment. But thanks to cloud-based computing, updating your systems can be as easier than ever. This means that your business can continue to innovate with minimal expenditure. It’s why so many smaller businesses can thrive here in the East of England.

  • Improved efficiency

There comes a time when all IT systems will come to the end of its life. Your staff may report increased technical issues. You may even find that your business is being impacted by unexpected downtime. A benefit of migrating from on-premise to cloud-based IT systems is that we can install newer, more effective ways of working which have been designed specifically to improve your business efficiency.

  • Scalability

If you find that your business needs to add new users due to faster than expected growth, then it’s reassuring to know that with cloud-based IT systems, it’s easy to scale up your business. Whether it’s adding new users or adding on new VoIP telephone lines, you are not tied into any lengthy contracts. It means your IT system has the flexibility and capability to adapt to your business needs.

  • Secure computing

If you are concerned by security, then cloud-based servers offer all the protection and resilience that you may expect. At Lucid Systems, we have our very own hosted data centres that allow us to proactively monitor and check for any issues before they arise. All data stored is fully encrypted, and our proactive approach towards maintenance means that we can identify any potential issues before they arise. What’s more, thanks to automatic backups, you can feel confident that your data is held securely and can be retrieved in the event of a loss.
