At one time I had five blaring servers running in my living room. As I learned about cloud-based technology that would stifle those da*n things and gain my space back, I started making changes to my absurd situation. Now I’m 100% cloud-based and love it. I am free and I have peace of mind.

And my data is my data. Period. I might pay for the service to have it housed, but it’s mine and I know it’s safe. It’s also nice to know that my data is encrypted both in transit and at rest as it travels back and forth between my MacBook and the data center.

If the power goes out, then I continue to work on my battery-powered laptop with my battery-powered mobile hotspot for Internet access and my battery-powered iPhone for voice communications. The data center remains unaffected wherever it is – all I know is that my data center is in the US because that was a choice when setting up my #Office365 account. My Quickbooks financial data is also in the US. My website resides in the US. I could go on and on to list all of my online services, but these services perform reliably and in unison without noisy, dirty, expensive and risky equipment.

I’m no longer bound to the world of one business operating system. I can use any Internet-connected device whether Windows, Mac, iOs or Android. If a device fails, becomes lost or is stolen, then it’s as easy as replacing the device and logging back in with my passwords. Done.
