Cloud Computing

What is cloud computing? Should you really care where your computer is located? Let’s face it: most of the time, you don’t. As long as you have a high-speed wireless connection, you can work anywhere. That’s the beauty of cloud computing.

On the road, in the office, at home – cloud computing gives you the ability to work anywhere, from any device. Just connect your desktop, laptop, smartphone, tablet, or hybrid to a high-speed wireless connection and you’re ready to go.

Yet plenty of questions still exist:

  • Which cloud computing vendors should you trust?
  • Can they really deliver on their promises of an increase in efficiency?
  • How do you set up cloud computing resources?
  • Are they easy to leverage in the right way?
  • How do you change your business workflow to use these resources?
  • Will an upgrade in bandwidth be required?
  • Does a hybrid solution make the most sense?
  • Can cloud computing actually help me save money?
  • Who owns the liability if something goes wrong?
  • Can I expect that something will go wrong?
  • Since everything resides in the cloud, will I even know if it does?
  • If so, who will fix it — and how quickly will that happen?

When it comes to cloud computing, you need an expert. That’s where we come in.

Cloud Hosting

What is cloud hosting?

It’s a way of providing access to computing resources and servers in a flexible way that allows you to pay as you grow. Most folks think of cloud hosting as the most affordable, scalable, and reliable way to acquire resources for their company.With cloud hosting, you don’t need to have a server under your desk or in a closet. With cloud hosting, there’s no need to pay for air conditioning to keep the office cool while the server spews hot air into your staff area.

Cloud Backup

 Three levels of cloud backup service dominate the market:

  • Free or extremely affordable consumer cloud storage options like Dropbox and Jungle Disk, which offer high levels of usability but low levels of security unless paired with encryption tools like Boxcryptor, Symantec and Jetico.
  • Data backup options like Carbonite, CrashPlan+, and Backblaze, which allow for backup of some files but require individuals or business owners to ensure that their own backup works.
  • Managed care remote backup, disaster recovery, and business continuity options like Geekoy Guardian, which bring beefy 256-bit encryption, redundant processes, routine testing of backups, disaster management plan development, and complete system virtualization and backup to the table.
