Cost Savings, Convenience and Security Cited Among Benefits of the Cloud
| Monday, Aug 1, 2011

The Cloud has arrived in Santa Clarita. Cloud49 is bringing cloud computing solutions to Southern California from its new regional headquarters in Valencia, offering area business owners not only an opportunity to take advantage of the cost savings and other benefits of cloud computing, but also to have a face-to-face relationship with cloud computing experts who can take the mystery out of the new technology.

“Cloud computing is a new concept for a lot of people, but it represents a quantum leap in the way businesses can store, access and protect their information and computer applications,” said Ryan Metro, Cloud49’s Director of Business Development. “Our team not only offers the expertise to make it all happen, but also to give business owners peace of mind, with the knowledge that their data is safe and secure.”

Metro said cloud computing solutions offer businesses a variety of benefits, including cost savings and convenience. Cloud49’s services include cloud data backup, infrastructure and disaster recovery, enabling businesses to recover data in the event of a crisis.

“Our services are offered on a pay-as-you-go basis, with no long-term contract requirement, so we constantly strive to earn our customers’ business. We offer highly competitive rates that make cloud data storage incredibly cost-effective, saving our clients on equipment ownership and maintenance, energy costs and more,” Metro said.

“The work station — whether it’s a desktop machine, a laptop, a tablet or a smart phone — simply interacts with the server, and the user is able to access his or her files and applications literally from anywhere using a password-protected interface,” Metro said. “You can close a file from one machine, then pick it up and work on it from another, seamlessly.”

Metro said Cloud49 servers offer speed, reliability and security. And, he said, another benefit of cloud computing is its sustainability. “Simply put, cloud computing is not just green, it’s evergreen,” he said, comparing cloud computing to a car lease that is perpetually in its first year.

“With most car leases, you love everything about the car in Year 1 but by Year 3, you are tired of it and you’re looking at the next model,” he said. “In the cloud computing world, we are constantly updating and upgrading, continually moving on to the newest, fastest, most technologically advanced equipment. It feels like the first year of a lease, all the time.”

Metro added: “We are able to increase energy efficiency and achieve economies of scale by storing high volumes of data all in one place, maximizing the use of our equipment. For businesses that want to operate with optimal sustainability — and to always have that ‘first-year lease’ feeling — cloud computing is absolutely the way to go.”

Businesses interested in the benefits of Cloud49’s computing services can get details on Cloud49’s website, www.cloud49.com, which includes a cloud savings calculator that helps businesses estimate how much they would save by switching to the cloud.

Nathaniel Gates, founder and President of Cloud49, said he’s excited about the company’s new opportunities in Santa Clarita and beyond.

“We’re thrilled to become part of the Santa Clarita business community, and we are committed to it,” Gates said. “This is a vibrant local economy and we’re looking forward to helping the area’s business owners use the power, stability and security of the virtual environment to seamlessly integrate their enterprises — and capitalize on the productive power of the cloud.”
