Advantages of using Cloud Solutions
Cloud Computing offers its users multitude of benefits evidenced by its increased demand and public awareness.
Some notable benefits include:
Cloud Backup Services
A cloud backup (also referred to as remote, online, or managed) is a service that provides users with a system for the backup, storage, and recovery of their computer files. Cloud backup services are considered a form of cloud computing.
Cloud backup systems are typically built around a client or plug-in software program that runs on a user-defined schedule. This program typically collects, compresses, encrypts, and transfers the data to the cloud backup service provider's servers or off-site hardware for storage and retention.
COMPUTER PROFESSIONAL’s Cloud Backup Solution provides a secure, reliable data protection solution for desktops, laptops and servers. This solution is suitable for both home and business users that have important data requiring safe and secure storage outside their primary location.

What is Cloud Computing??
The term "the cloud" is essentially a metaphor for the Internet. Over the years, IT companies have used the term to mean platform and infrastructure that are often sold as a service made available through the internet. The goal of cloud computing is to allow users to gain the benefits of computing technologies without the need for deep knowledge or technical expertise. The cloud aims to cut costs, allow universal access, and help customers to focus on their core business instead of being impeded by IT obstacles or costly upgrades.
In a sense we have been living with ‘the cloud’ since the 1950’s when the first large scale main-frame became available and was controlled through terminal computers. Now we have the option of storing information in the cloud or locally due to computers having a bit more power than back then.
The term "moving to cloud" also refers to an organization moving away from a traditional capital expenditure model (buy the dedicated hardware and depreciate it over a period of time) to the operating expense model (use a shared cloud infrastructure and pay as one uses it).
There are advantages of both models and the decision to use the cloud for all or part of your computing needs will depend on your business. Factors like number of users, budget allocation and data sensitivity play a large roll. COMPUTER PROFESSIONALS can help with that decision.
Cloud Email Service (also known as Hosted Exchange) is essentially taking your local Microsoft Exchange Server mail and having it hosted on a cloud server. You will still enjoy full access to your email, calendar, and contacts either through MS Outlook or OWA. Regardless of your location, you can work from the office, a remote computer or your mobile smartphone. Cloud Email Service allows you to access the information you need without compromising security or function.
Below are a few benefits of using Cloud Email Services:
