So what is the “cloud” anyway? Simply put, any time that you store or retrieve information to or from a professionally managed remote server computer over an Internet connection, you are accessing a cloud service. Private clouds are managed in-house and public clouds are managed by a third party. It’s that simple. With reliable Internet connections now becoming ubiquitous, many types of services and larger amounts of data are able to be moved to the cloud.
How can this help my business? A profitable small business is one without barriers that can prevent staff from working effectively together. An effective team is one that communicates, collaborates and coordinates easily and efficiently. The concept of the cloud provides a framework that facilitates high quality interaction, removing those barriers and providing your staff with the tools they need to do their best work. Annexus can help you take advantage of all that the cloud has to offer while squarely addressing the concerns that all small businesses have — security, reliability, ease-of-use, support, etc.
