What is Cloud Computing & Why You Should Care?

First of all, what does it mean?

The concise definition:

Cloud computing is a service that enables convenient, fast, low cost, and on-demand access to computing resources (e.g., networks, servers, storage,applications, and services) that can be setup rapidly and scale as needed with minimal effort.

A little more details:

"The cloud" is a friendly way of describing web-based services that are hosted outside of your organization. When you use cloud-based services, your IT infrastructure resides off-premises, and is maintained by a third party, instead of residing on a server at your business that you maintain. Many services you use every day are a part of the cloud— everything from websites, to web-based email to mobile banking and online photo storage. Because information is located online or "in the cloud," you can access it virtually anywhere, from a PC, tablet or mobile phone.

Transitioning to the cloud offers numerous benefits, ranging from costs savings and increased productivity to disaster recovery.

  • I have been utilizing Techonsite for my IT needs for approximately 5 years. The firm recently implemented the upgrade of a new server and workstations for my CPA firm. The majority of the work to configure the new server and workstations was done via remote login to my network, therefore there was no disruption to my normal day to day operation. The final steps of the implementation was done on a weekend so when my employees came to work on a Monday, they had new computers that were operational and the same desktop display as their old computers. I chose Techonsite for the implementation because they have been responsive to my IT needs, they listen to the customer and do not try to oversell services, but they do offer recommendation for all IT needs. In summary, I would definitely recommend Techonsite to all business that need excellent technical support.
