Cloud Computing — Your Flexible IT Solution
iT1 Solutions offers businesses of all sizes a better way to leverage their technology: cloud computing. Cloud computing simplifies IT by providing cloud software and cloud applications to all of your business computers. Rather than installing a suite of software on one computer at a time, cloud computing allows you to only install one application. There are many cloud computing services. iT1 Solutions can help you wade through the many options, choosing the correct solution for your needs.
How Cloud Computing Works
As your cloud computing service provider, iT1 Solutions manages everything in regard to cloud services for your business. We handle the infrastructure, support, backups, upgrades, security, and maintenance. We also provide the cloud software that your company needs.
Rather than purchasing and installing a word processor, accounting program, or customer relationship management application locally on your computer, you are able to subscribe to a cloud service and use the software online. We’ll make sure that your data is privately secured yet readily accessible from any computer.
Applications of all types can be hosted online including:
- Office productivity software
- Business applications
- Customer relationship management software
- Lead management software
- Accounting software
- Human resources software
- Collaboration tools
- Email marketing software
- Transaction processing software

Benefits of Cloud Computing
Cloud computing is a cost-effective choice for your business, delivering cloud applications that your company needs in order to function properly. Cloud services eliminate the need for capital investments in software, infrastructure, and technical staff. Cloud computing allows you to pay for the capacity you need, providing a greater flexibility and control over your budget.
Cloud Computing Benefits Include:
- Anytime, anywhere access
- Minimal configuration required
- No complicated IT tasks
- Minimal upfront costs
- Pay as you go
- Automatic updates, upgrades, and system maintenance
- Easy to add or reduce capacity as needed
Cloud computing is an excellent option for smaller businesses, leveling the playing field by providing access to robust cloud applications that normally would not be affordable on such a small scale.
There are also cloud computing benefits for larger businesses, such as anytime, anywhere access, centralized data, real-time collaboration, automatic backups, global reach, streamlined processes, standardization, business continuity, and reduced IT costs.
Private Cloud Computing and Virtualization
In addition to cloud software, many enterprise organizations are finding benefits to building their own private clouds. Private clouds make better use of existing resources, creating a firewall and ramping up security. While “public” clouds deliver applications over the Internet, private clouds are hosted behind the company’s firewall or at a third party provider’s data center.
