In 2011 it is probably safe to say that your business could utilize computing power “in the cloud” to perform virtually every computer operation you might need. But, being able to do it and it being the right business decision for you might be two entirely different things. Micro Medic can help you sort through the pros and cons of buying or renting cloud-based computing services so you can decide if they are right for you.
Micro Medic has offered and supported cloud computing for a number of years. Here are some examples:
- Server co-location
- Internet backup
- Firewall monitoring
- Backup Monitoring
- Server and network monitoring
- Hosted Exchange email
- Hosted POP email
- Challenge/Response anti-spam
- Line-of-business software applications
- Customer Portals
- Hosted SharePoint
Each of these examples of cloud services has its own set of costs, problems and consequences that need to be evaluated before you make a decision to use it. For example: are there any regulations in my industry with regard to email retention that would make Hosted Exchange a bad choice? Micro Medic is an experienced cloud-computing integrator who will work with you to analyze your options to arrive at an informed decision.
