Revolutionizing Dental Care: Taking IT Services to the Cloud

August 17, 2023

Ask Yourself…

How old are your aging servers? Do you feel like your firewall tools are increasingly becoming more unreliable? Is your operation still running at an optimal speed? If the answers to these questions aren’t in your business’ favor, then it may be time to consider migrating to the Cloud.

What is the cloud?

an illustration of the cloud with an orange and cyan arrow pointing up into it,The term “cloud” was originally used as an analogy to illustrate the complexities of how phone networks connect. However, the Cloud has evolved into a technological model where servers, networks, applications, and much more are implemented through the internet. You can think of it as a very large, very secure storage cabinet. Migrating to the Cloud is the action of moving your company’s digital assets, databases, IT resources, applications, and more into an off-premises infrastructure that stores all your data. So, what would this mean to your business?

Well, if you’re still currently storing all your data locally or in-house, consider what will happen once a disaster strikes. We know that disasters are inevitable, whether that be a natural storm, power outage, damaged equipment; the list goes on. We know that 93% of companies that are unable to recover their data within 10 days after a disaster are ultimately forced to file bankruptcy within a year. However, by storing all your information in the Cloud, even if there is a natural disaster or damage to your in-house equipment, all your data will remain backed up, with the ability to be recovered.

Ultimately, moving your business to the Cloud will increase productivity and provide peace of mind that your data is backed up. Not to mention, it is very easy for you, and your entire team, to access it from anywhere!

So, let’s talk about the benefits:

  • Object Storage:
    Don’t stress this, the limit does not exist. The Cloud provides your business with the ability to store images, music, videos, x-rays, and more without taking up nearly as much space as it does on your devices.
  • Rapid Adaptability:
    Want to leave the manual off-site backups behind? There are multiple cloud backup options, including backup disaster recovery, hybrid cloud backup, quick recovery time, and flexible data capture based on business needs & size. These options are able to provide your business with Cloud scalability.
  • Shared Resources:
    Rather than needing to create a copy of each item for each team member, the Cloud provides your team with a single application that is shared amongst several users. These shared resources provide your team with improved performance capabilities and the ability to scale faster.
  • On-Premises Migration:
    Once efficient IT processes are implemented, migrating your data and information to the Cloud does not disrupt nor impact your business’ workflow & productivity.


Moving to the cloud commonly involves modernizing existing applications and revamping the IT infrastructure. The goal of this is to create a new operating model that provides your company with the ability to innovate faster. To do this, automated management and migration tools are critical in order to accomplish a smooth, and high-quality, migration.

At the end of the day

Your business’ time and work are valuable, and you shouldn’t let storage issues, old servers, or disasters impact your operation. Consider asking your IT support what Cloud services they provide and what their management plan entails that will keep this migration on track. If you don’t currently have a committed IT service provider, we strongly encourage you to find one that best suits your business needs.
