What is cloud computing?
The easiest explanation would be that cloud computing is computing on the Internet. Instead of installing programs and storing data on a computer hard drive, you are able to run the programs and access the data directly from a website. Everything is stored on a remote server that you can access from any computer, virtually anywhere.
We have years of experience in creatively adapting today’s technology to meet business needs. Although there are many options when it comes to building a cloud infrastructure, we find that cloud hosting solutions are most preferred by:
- Businesses with multiple locations.
- Companies who prefer to backup data offsite in a secure location.
- Businesses who want the benefits of a full scale data center without expending the financial resources to build their own.
- Clients who want us to host Microsoft email exchange offsite.
- Clients that would rather pay month to month only for the resources they need but still have the ability to scale up and purchase more resources as their business grows.
- Companies who don’t want to have to replace hardware every 3-5 years.
- Clients who prefer to finance IT equipment as an Operating Expense (OPEX) instead of a Capital Expense (CAPEX).

Virtualization is a method of consolidation that allows businesses to run several different applications on a single piece of hardware. Running more applications on a single server means less hardware to purchase, less equipment to power, and overall less to maintain.
