The rapid spread of the virus that causes COVID-19 has sparked alarm worldwide. The World Health Organization (WHO) has declared this rapidly spreading coronavirus outbreak a pandemic, and many countries are grappling with a rise in confirmed cases. In the US, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is advising people to be prepared for disruptions to daily life that will be necessary if the coronavirus spreads within communities.
In the case of viral outbreaks like COVID-19, or any kind of disaster that prevents people from entering their workplace, managed services and cloud computing help ensure that time is not lost on projects, keeping your business growing.
Cloud Based Business Infrastructure
Many businesses are moving their infrastructure to a cloud network of some sorts. Whether they are utilizing a hybrid deployment with an on-site datacenter, or fully migrating out to a cloud solution, it has become apparent that the cloud is not just some trend.

Why Used Managed Services?
Alongside the use of cloud databases, more and more businesses are turning to the use of managed services to handle their IT needs, including the upkeep and troubleshooting for how their cloud services are used. There are numerous reasons why companies but for most, it comes down to a matter of cost.
Can Technology Help To Slow the Spread of the Coronavirus?
With the benefits of managed services and cloud networks established, that still leaves the query of how they help with preventing the spread of Coronavirus, or any disease for that matter. While these things are influences on how a business operates on a technological level, what they allow for is an ability to make a work environment more mobile.
This is where the help comes in.
By allowing work to be done remotely, be it from home, or some other location, several factors come into play that help managed services slow the spread of Coronavirus.
- If anyone were to become infected, they are not bringing it to the office, and risking infecting others.
- When business resumes in the office, that means that it will not be a contaminated zone that will infect others.
- The use of cloud services means that people can work effectively from home as there is no loss of access to critical data or files.
- The advancement of communications technology allows for coworkers to continue to interface with one another and any potential clients
- If there is a problem with someone working remote, your managed service provider can use remote access to assist with, and potentially solve the problem.
Utilizing these abilities can keep your business safe from infection and allows for you to have a plan to conduct business in the case of any future emergencies.
There is still a lot of information coming out about COVID-19 and a lot more that needs to be done to contain it.
With new cases arising every day, it is important that we all do our part to ensure that safe precautions are taken to prevent people from becoming infected. Using the technology, we have at our disposal, we can do so without sacrificing our jobs, ensuring that we can keep our livelihoods, and our businesses intact.
