Cloud Savings for Your Small Business [Infographic]

by: | 04/04/2013 Estimated Reading Time: 2 minutes

This week on Line//Shape//Space, it's all about the cloud. So far, we've given you six reasons to leap into the cloud and three reasons from an IT director's perspective why it makes sense for small businesses. If you're still skeptical about entrusting the cloud with your important business files and information, then check out this infographic about cloud savings to alleviate your concerns.

Here are the highlights: six solid reasons why it’ll make your life easier to use the cloud, some of the cloud services available to help your business, the number of cloud services small businesses are using today, and how much you’ll cut energy and IT-labor costs by using the cloud.

Tell us: How are you using the cloud to run your business better? Or if you’re not yet, what’s holding you back?

@bill martin jr Thanks for the recommendation, Bill. We decided to start with a mention of Gmail, as many people don't realize that they're already operating in the cloud with email. But we'll likely be talking about other Google services in the future.
