Cloud Services

Solutions that leverage all that the cloud has to offer

The cloud is changing how IT services are delivered and used. This represents a HUGE opportunity for your business.


Just because it’s new and there is a lot of hype around it, doesn’t mean that adopting the latest cloud offering is right for your business. There are a lot of factors that need to be taken into consideration. What are the benefits of moving a service to the cloud? What are the risks? Will it be compatible with other interdependent systems? Do you have enough bandwidth to support the service? Will your users readily adapt to the change? Who is going to train them? Who is going to support your environment once it is in the cloud?

While moving your services to the cloud presents numerous opportunities, it also poses potential challenges. You need to have reliable internet connectivity with sufficient speed and redundancy to prevent downtime. You need sufficient support for the cloud service to run optimally. Despite the fact that you can move your Exchange or SQL Server to the cloud, it still requires regular administration. Some applications may not be ideally suited for the cloud. You need to have a plan.
