Almost every small and mid-sized business (SMB) owner is being inundated with information promoting cloud this or that, making it nearly impossible to determine who or what to trust. After all, deciding to migrate to the cloud is often fraught with risk and uncertainty, leading many business owners to stick with what they know. Often, what they know and are comfortable with, is a file server installed in the secure confines of their office. This is a tangible investment in purpose-built hardware running Windows Server OS, a topology referred to as a “client / server network”. In this mode of network, which has been around since the 70s, each computer connects to the local server for access to files and applications. This centralized way of computing has served us well, but the emergence of cloud computing has turned the model upside down.
