Believe it or Not, A Cloud Can Make Things Clearer

SaaS – As a Service

IT Departments typically spend money on hardware and consistently upgrade that hardware on a never ending basis. Hardware deteriorates and gets old thus making the Capital Expenditure (CAPEX) an ongoing activity for IT Departments.

With the advent of SaaS that has all changed. The CAPEX has become an Operational Expense (OPEX). Today you don’t have to invest in costly deteriorating hardware. That same hardware is replaced with cloud technology making your budget a fixed item that is predictable.

For example if you have to replace your Microsoft Exchange server that could cost you thousands of dollars. But what if you could move your entire email platform to the cloud and pay one flat rate per user per month and have it work just like it does today? That’s Hosted Exchange. That’s Software as a Service.

ITD Solutions can help you find the best possible cloud solution for your exact needs.

What is Cloud Computing, Anyway?

One form of Cloud Computing is Desktop as a Service (DaaS), which allows you to host or store your computer desktop in a virtual space and retrieve that same desktop from any device, anywhere in the world.

Let’s say you’re starting an important email at your office in Boston; you have to run out of the office for the rest of the day and don’t have time to finish the email. When you get home in Worcester, just open your iPad and, instantly, you’re right back at your office desktop with the very same email opened right where you left it — but in the comfort of your own home. That’s the magic of Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS).

The days of your IT personnel running around the office and updating each machine every few months are over! With DaaS, all of your desktops are remotely managed from a single administrator account, in which users can be added or deleted with a simple keystroke. This not only frees up your IT resources it also gives you the power to add, remove or change a user in seconds.

Security

Chances are your local network can be hacked easier than a Cloud based solution. Many companies don’t have the resources to hire a security guard to protect their network 24/7. However, all of the partners we work with do and they all make sure that their networks are 100% secure as seen by their Service Level Agreements (SLA’s) and HIPAA compliancy.

Have you ever lost a laptop? How much time and effort did it take for you to ensure that the data on that laptop never fell into the wrong hands? How much time and effort did it take to recover all the lost data?

With DaaS you will never have to worry about a lost device again. All of your information is stored securely in the Cloud and your monitor simply views it. If your laptop goes missing, you have only lost your “viewer” not your data.

Based on a study done by Intel and Ponemon Institute the average cost of a lost laptop is $49,246.

That study states: “This value is based on seven cost components: replacement cost, detection, forensics, data breach, lost intellectual property costs, lost productivity and legal, consulting and regulatory expenses.”.

This all goes away when your desktops are in the cloud. Never pay another dime on recovering information when you put your desktops in the cloud.

Embrace the Convenience of the Cloud

Still toiling on a project at 5 p.m.? Want to get home to your family but also feeling the pressure to wrap up your work for the next day? No problem. Go home and pick up where you left off… you don’t even have to take your computer with you. The cloud is accessible immediately, in real time, from any device and at any location in the world.

Vacations, commuting, slow email correspondence and multi-person group projects will never be a problem again. If your business has multiple offices, they can all operate as if they’re working from the same digital file cabinet. The cloud offers instant communication when you want it.

In fact, you can even host or store all of your business’ documents and files in the cloud, using it either as your primary “hard drive alternative” or simply as a backup storage solution.

Cloud computing literally changes the way business is done, for the better.
