Cloud Thoughts… Couple of years on…

So… A couple of years ago I wrote a blog about the “Cloud”… Whilst this is something that people have been talking about for some time, a lot has happened in the last couple of years…

In the SME sector, hosted desktop has all but come and gone. Whilst it can work well in a large, very controlled corporate environment, it struggles in the SME sector. This is mainly because the apps used by SMEs are basic and inflexible. To use hosted desktops, you need to be an MS Office user alone. Even with that, there are some limitations. They are invariably locked down to a very large degree as they are normally on shared platforms using Citrix.

We have found, over the years, that some customers have come to us to migrate them OFF hosted desktops and onto a hybrid cloud solution. Our hybrid cloud solution is perfect for SMEs as it is reliable and resilient. The things that should be hosted, are… Email, Support, Backup and Monitoring to name but a few.

So… In summary, it is useful to note that sometimes the funkiest sounding ideas aren’t always the best and can end up being a very costly mistake.

To change your IT systems over to a resilient hybrid cloud system, call us on 020 7644 2800!
