4 Reasons to Fall in Love with the Cloud

4 Reasons to Fall in Love with the Cloud

The season of love is upon us, and your credit union needs love as much as your friends and significant other. Whether you’re celebrating Valentine’s Day or Galentine’s Day, check out these four reasons to fall in love with the cloud, and look into some cloud computing options for your credit union.

1. Keep Your Data Safe from Disaster

Just like you need a friend to help pick up the pieces after a bad breakup, your credit union needs support in recovering from disaster. Business continuity and disaster recovery through the cloud can be that support for your credit union. These services ensure your credit union’s data and digital services stay safe and secure, even during a natural disaster or other continuity event.

2. Speed

The cloud offers high-speed computing, so you don’t have to worry about missing Valentine’s Day dinner waiting for a report to run. Cloud systems are often able to offer more computing power than your average on-prem server, allowing your credit union to process data faster, leading to real-time decision-making capabilities. 

3. Cost Effectiveness

The quality of cloud computing is like getting a diamond ring on a rhinestone budget. Most cloud services run off of a monthly subscription model, where your credit union only pays for as much power as it needs. No more storage and upkeep costs, no more dedicated space to house an on-prem server. The cloud can help your credit union cut down on overhead over the long-term.

4. Scalability

As mentioned, with the cloud, you only pay for what you need, and you can change how much power you’re paying for at any time. If your credit union finds it needs more power, speak to your rep about scaling up. Likewise, if you find you’re using less than what your originally expected, scale it back down. The cloud provides your credit union with plenty of options to make sure you’re getting exactly what you need, when you need it.

If your credit union hasn’t already invested in the cloud, it’s time to show it some love and start looking at cloud options. For the reasons above and many more, the cloud can help your credit union run more efficiently and help you to provide better services to members.
