Coronavirus and Working Remotely in the Cloud
The World Health Organization (WHO) recently classified the Coronavirus (COVID-19) as a global pandemic outbreak. Each passing day brings continued news of venue closures, various “States of Emergency”, country closures, travel bans, and the closure of most non-essential businesses for the next few weeks is disheartening yet necessary for the commn good of people you may or may not know across the nation. The most challenging changes have been the closures of virtually every educational institution from K-12 to Colleges and Universities, some on break and some moving to on-line instruction only for the immediate future. This has also trickled into widespread company closures. This change drastically increases the demand for distance learning and home offices for thousands of employees across the United States. Companies are sending their entire workforce home to work. College students are scrambling to make sure they are setup to remotely view their class lectures and finish out the quarter or semester. These are all great ideas to help slow the spread and gain ground on the containment of this highly virulent virus, yet some companies and institutions simply do not have the infrastructure in place to enable students, professors and employees to comply. It may appear to be an overwhelming task, but if we put this into perspective, it’s simple. Cloud Services Providers like Orange County Computer can help expeditiously solve this problem and keep everyone working with a wide array of available Cloud Solutions we offer. Virtually every industry will be affected by this virus in some way, yet businesses must continue to function and operate as usual. The current situation is overwhelming for us all, however, the workaround for businesses and students is to to avoid the the transmission and spread of COVID-19 by working remotely in the Cloud.
Many say that the media has spun this situation and created a panic frenzy. Most consumers believe that the Coronavirus is just like the flu, however it is not. We see the number of cases increasing each day, we learn more and we make the appropriate changes to protect ourselves and those around us. We do know that this is a highly contagious and invasive respiratory virus that can cause pneumonia in the average person and possible death in elderly and those with a compromised health status. This is why extreme measures such as self quarantine, working from home and on-line college classrooms are the new norm for the immediate future. Businesses must implement alternative plans (disaster prevention) in the event of global pandemics, earthquakes, fire, flooding and other “disasters” to keep afloat, which is why working remotely in the cloud using Cloud Solutions is so widely popular. It’s only a matter of time before your boss or colleague suggests that everyone work from home to help decrease the spread of Coronavirus and working in the cloud will be one of the few ways that businesses can move forward during this crisis.
The current reality is that companies will cut labor, ask staff to work off-site, or close for several weeks at a time. The good news is that there is a quick solution that can keep you working by utilizing Cloud Solutions. Your company can continue to work as usual while following the recommendations made by the CDC and the WHO to minimize public exposure.
