What we?ve learnt this month about cloud computing

From big data and remote working, to security and backup, this month IT Channel Expert has covered everything to do with the cloud.

Our first ever monthly theme was a bigger hit than we expected, with a lot of companies having a lot the say about this sector, confirming our suspicions that it is still a fascinating subject that a lot of resellers and businesses are now either fully embracing or heavily considering getting involved with.

We’ve seen quite a strong focus on how important is it to get cloud right, whether that’s making sure you have the right cloud partner, or being confident that your cloud security is right for your business.

It appears the decision to move to the cloud is quite an easy one for most businesses, but fully understanding the pros, cons and security issues can be the tricky part.

If you’ve missed any of our cloud articles over the past month, here are our top ten most popular pieces on the subject:
