Cloud Services - Google Cloud
Cloud Services - Google Cloud
Google Cloud computing has changed how IT works and revolutionised how businesses operate online. With the help of a cloud service provider, any company can host its critical data, business files, emails and websites in the cloud.
If at the beginning of the cloud services era only big business took advantage of such valuable offerings, mostly because of the prohibitive prices, nowadays all companies, from small to medium, can take full advantage of the endless benefits the cloud technology brings.
As a proud Google Cloud services provider, the IT Hub is always here to help.
Choosing the right cloud service for your business
One of the most critical changes that cloud computing brings to any business it is the capacity to end the need of acquiring and maintaining most of the IT infrastructure.
By doing so, your company no longer has to worry about the technicalities that go into supporting own IT infrastructure as everything is managed in the cloud.
Also, your staff no longer has to worry about the IT infrastructure, servers, exchange, security software, firewalls, enabling them to focus on what they do best: engage with customers and bring more value to the businesses to the audience.
In the cloud business space, Google and Microsoft have established themselves as the world’s top two cloud services providers for both, personal and business use.
That’s why, choosing the right cloud services provider might be a difficult decision, which depends not only on the proper understanding on your business's needs but also on the knowledge of what these cloud providers can do for you, for your IT infrastructure and in particular, for your business.
Google Cloud G Suite, or Microsoft Office 365?
For most businesses switching to cloud services, G Suite and Office 365 are two of the most relevant cloud-based productivity tools available right now.
Google’s cloud services are called G Suite, while Microsoft has released its similar version of cloud services, called Office 365.
However, as each service has its positives and negatives, it is essential to understand which one suits your needs, as in assessing the business to find which one is right for you, capabilities, resources, and cost wise, in the long run.
Microsoft has always been and will most likely remain a crucial part of any business the uses IT infrastructure, such as computers, laptops, servers, and so on.
That is why, here, at the IT Hub we are incredibly proud to be a Microsoft partner that benefits and passes a particular discounted pricing system and instant customer support, at any time of the day or night.
Our IT cloud experts are continually learning new things, and Microsoft cloud team provide us with access to their expert training, the latest software, and cloud services.
More than that, our partnership with Microsoft has allowed the IT HUB team to learn the inside-outs of Microsoft’s cloud products, so that our experts can provide our clients with the most suitable and best price services, for any cloud-related needs they might have.
IT Hub is an official Google Cloud Partner since its inception
But at the same time, the IT HUB has also been a Google business partner since its inception. Such a rare feat gives our team full preferential access to Google’s unique combination of cloud services.
Our team of Google could experts are well versed in the installation and setup of Google business emails, Google documents sharing, Google photos, Google cloud storage, and Google calendar services.
In fact, given their fantastic versatility, excellent customer support, and competitive pricing system, Google cloud services have become our favourite ‘go to the cloud’ solution.
Google cloud strength lies in its simplicity and robustness that gives any company unmatched flexibility and easier data access anywhere in the world, across any device.
As the IT HUB has been a Google Cloud partner for so many years, our team of Google cloud experts can assess, buy, migrate, manage, and upgrade any Google cloud products your business might need, to perfection.
Not only that, but with the IT HUB, all installations, migrations, and deployment of cloud services is faster, cheaper, and hassle-free.
However, choosing between the cloud services provided by either Microsoft or Google depends on the needs of your business.
Price per account and data storage and the overall ease of use will always be seen as some of the deciding factors.
And yet, the level of support should always come into the calculation as well. Although most businesses are already familiar with Microsoft office, as most business users have used and are still using its products, Google cloud services are mirroring to a large extent the interfaces and usability of the former.
Moreover, Google cloud services are real-time collaboration centric on all services provided, such as calendar, email, documents and so on while Microsoft is still lagging behind in some aspects.
Google Cloud is the fastest, most secure, and easiest to use
While both G Suite and Microsoft Office 365 have several attributes that allow them to compete with one another across the many cloud services in their offering, we feel that Google comes out on top concerning collaboration and ease of use.
On the other hand, if your staff is already familiar with Microsoft Office, the learning curve and transition time to Office 365 will be more comfortable, take less time, and that is an advantage.
However, if your employees are already using Google's email client for their personal needs, they will find it easier to transition to the G Suite cloud services rather than trying to engage again with Microsoft Office, but in a cloud-based format.
If your business wants an online cloud service suite that is fast, secure and simple to use, Google is by far the best choice.
To further help you make your decision to which cloud service provider is most suitable for your needs, our experts here at the IT HUB recommend, after so many years of using both cloud services providers and their tools, Google suite and its extensive range of services such as the emails, document processors, data storage, calendar and many more.
Moreover, if your business is built on extensive collaboration features for your teams, then again the G Suite cloud service is a much better option in the opinion of our cloud services experts.
