Reasons Why Your Business Should Move to the Cloud



We’re witnessing many changes due to the increased popularity of cloud-based services. We

like using streaming services for entertainment at home or on the go, while chances are your

company is heavily reliant on the same technology. There are many valid reasons why more

and more companies are switching to the cloud, and they are all able to enjoy numerous

benefits. Here are just some of them.


Cost-efficient



Let’s start with possibly the most important reason for any business. It saves money, which

means more profit. When you move your business online, you don’t need to buy, maintain and

replace expensive data centers and on-site servers. What you do instead is pay a hosting

company and the fee includes using its hardware and facilities, which means you have more

resources to invest elsewhere.


Great scalability



One of the greatest benefits is the ability to pay only for the services you need. Since those

needs change over time, you can always negotiate a new deal with your hosting company, since

they are all quite flexible, because they understand how the market operates. This means that

if there is a sudden breakthrough and you go through a period of enormous growth, you’ll be

able to get more storage space instantly, without having to invest in new hardware.


Backup and disaster



Relying on experts in providing cloud services means you don’t have to worry about backup

solutions and prepare and respond to disaster recovery situations, which affect every business

eventually. When your data is safely stored and backed up, you’re ready for the moment we

hope never comes..


Security



It’s vital that your company’s data are accessible only to those you allow access to. Since any

data backed up in the cloud is encrypted, this is not a problem. Also, hosting providers

constantly monitor and update their security features, which is great news for you and the

security of your data. This only means that as long as device access is kept to your employees,

you won’t have to worry about security.


Eco-friendly



It’s worth remembering that if you move your business to the cloud, your company will

consume less power, which means you’ll pay less, and you’ll do your part when it comes to

helping the environment. Lowering your company’s carbon footprint is not only beneficial to

the planet, but it also contributes to creating an image of an eco-friendly business, something

that clients surely appreciate.


Facilitates remote working



We’ve seen most companies switch to remote working due to the current pandemic. This

wouldn’t have been possible had it not been for the cloud technology. Some companies had

allowed their employees to work remotely even before the onset of COVID-19, because they

realized they could benefit from being more flexible. Another benefit of remote working is that

companies no longer recruit people living in their area but can cast the net much wider when

looking for your employees, which allows them to attract top talent from all over the world.


It’s always up to date



Apart from providing security, your cloud provider is also in charge of keeping all your

applications and data up to date, which means that all those granted access to them will always

be presented with the latest and most relevant versions, regardless of where they are at the

moment.


It promotes collaboration



With cloud-based workflow and file-sharing apps, people have the ability to work together

more easily and efficiently. Everyone can make real-time updates, see what other people are

doing and communicate effectively. This level of collaboration also speeds up projects and

improves customer service.


These are just some of the advantages of cloud computing for businesses. All you need to do is

find a reliable provider of this service, i.e. one that offers proper security and backup measures

to protect your data, and your business will be ready to grow and meet future challenges.

Vindication- a series review.

 I had surgery in the past week and when browsing for a show to binge because what else is there to do when you are on bed rest and I came across Vindication.  I wasnt sure if I was going to like it as I am not a fan of crime drama but after the first episode I found myself wanting more, my daughter watched it with me and we love it.  

Vindication is a crime show unlike any other I’ve seen. The stories are told in an artsy style with flashbacks seamlessly interspersed. The writing is top notch, pulling you into each episode and literally keeping you on the edge of your seat the entire time. You can’t look away for a moment or you’ll miss something. Vindication takes very seriously the rule that everything in a movie is there for a reason and nothing is there unless it adds to the story. There’s no fluff.  This is also an family friendly series. 

We watch a lot of detective shows and we are usually  pretty good at predicting the end, but not with  #VindicationMIN While I might have suspicions, I’m always pleasantly surprised by the final outcome. In fact, after an intense climax that usually has me bawling, in the end, I know that something will catch me by surprise, and I’ll laugh before it’s over. For me, that’s the ultimate test of entertainment – something that brings me to both tears and laughter. To do that in a 30 minute segment is incomprehensible, and yet they do it each time.

I watched it on Pureflix because that is one of my fav streaming service.

More and more women are getting involved in golf, and it is not difficult to see why.

Playing golf requires a lot of skill and you also need to be in good shape too. From your cardio to your cable flyes, putting together a good exercise regime is a must. Aside from this, you need to get all of your golfing clubs and equipment. 

Ladies’ golf putters are available in their numbers, with plenty of different options to choose from. From the appearance of the putter to the price of it, there are many things you will need to look at before purchasing. 

The first thing you need to consider is the length of the putter. Today, golf putters range in length from around 32 inches to 52 inches. With most women opting for a putter between 32 and 36 inches. This decision is of huge importance, as the length of the putter is going to have a big influence on your stroke. You should never have to change your stroke to fit the putter; rather, the putter should fit your stroke. 

The second factor to consider is the insert technology that is used. To generate an enhanced feel and a smoother roll, materials are inserted into the clubface for improved performance. They vary in material, firmness and colour, and they are designed to lower the ball skidding off the club face and rolling. 

Finally, the design of the club head is the final aspect that needs to be carefully considered. Alignment putters are ideal for those who want assistance when starting the ball on the correct target line. Mallet putters are beneficial due to their improved alignment. Finally, blade putters are the traditional option that are widely used by most. They tend to be heel-toe weighted and they are thinner in depth from the face to the cavity. 

Shaft Lengths To Consider

Golf putters on sale come in different designs with varying shaft lengths. The latter is what we are concerned with in this post. Finding the right length putter is paramount importance. It needs to be right for your stroke and your height if you are to produce high quality strikes and consistent putting. Read on to find out more.

It is vital to recognise that this is measure from the top of the shaft down to the sole of the putter, which is below the hosel. In terms of maximum and minimum limit, there is no maximum, but rules state that you cannot have a putter that has a shaft smaller than 18 inches long. Most people tend to opt for golf putters between 32 and 36 inches; these are known as traditional length shafts. One of the main benefits associated with this type of shaft is that you can give the ball a roll that is as true as possible because it improves your ability to utilise a pendulum-like stroke. Next we have the Belly Putter, which is between 41 and 46 inches. These have grown in popularity as of late. The reason why they are so popular is that they can completely change the posture of the player, thus generating more stability. Nevertheless, you do need to be mindful because anchored putting or belly putting methods are illegal in competitions, the putter itself is not though. The least common of the three is the long putter, which is between 48 and 52 inches. 

Women’s Golf Shoes – Why Choose FootJoy?

There are lots of reasons why golfers, both professional and casual, have fallen in love with FootJoy golf shoes. 

Firstly, there is the sheer fact that there are so many different shoes and styles to choose from. Consumers should have no trouble finding the perfect golf shoes for them, whether they are looking for spiked or spikeless golf shoes, or whether they have certain requirements, for example, they need wide fit shoes. 

FootJoy are also known for their stylish designs, from sleek golf boots, to trainer-style golf shoes, to fashion forward shoes made from luxurious materials, such as calfskin leather. However, the main reason why these shoes are held in such high regard is because of the innovative technology behind them.

Some of the golf shoes they sell come with a 3D FoamCollar, which is designed for comfort and support, as it moulds the show to your heel and collar. Another popular features is the TourLock Cleat System, which is obviously for spiked shoes. This system ensures that cleats remain in the shoe even in the most difficult conditions.
