Cloud computing is very basically the provision of computing services over the internet utilising hardware not owned by the user. There are now many forms that this takes of which LCS can provide several. If you do not fully understand cloud computing then please click here to read the wikipedia definition of cloud computing.
LCS do not host cloud computing services but resell them from other providers. We feel that this allows us to remain competitive by being able to quickly change pricing and available services by constantly reviewing and selecting to resell the best products available in the marketplace today, not last year.
If LCS were to host our own cloud services then we would have additional costs that would have to be met and latency in the adoption of newer services which would restrict our clients in the services that we could provide. We would have to promote our own services over more competitively priced, newer products in order to cover our investment.
Currently LCS can provide three types of cloud based services as detailed below.
- Online backup
- Exchange server
Many more services are available such as hosted Contact management (CRM) and hosted desktop (your company PC in the cloud including exchange, office, sage, CRM etc.). LCS can analyse your IT usage and assist in determining your cloud requirements. Call or email us to arrange a meeting.
