PRLog - Nov. 14, 2011 - IT Support London company, Ziptech Services has today announced that they will be establishing a partnership that will provide small and medium sized businesses (SMBs) with the Cloud Computing infrastructure as well as moving Ziptech’s business from a hybrid Cloud model to running all applications in the Cloud by 2012.
Ziptech Services Ltd
Managing Director, Jim Simpson believes that this move allows the company to test and fully understand the challenges and benefits that Cloud Computing offers before making recommendations to clients.
“Cloud Computing is the way that the industry is going. All the major players are investing heavily in it – Oracle, Google and Microsoft. Businesses love the idea of Cloud Computing – they are keen to get the server out of the office, like the pay-as-you-go way of paying for applications and the idea of easy access to applications on any device. This ‘Martini’ style computing (any time, any place, anywhere) all sounds great – but we believe in eating our own dog food. That is why we are going to make the transition to the Cloud first. Only then can we help clients move to the Cloud as smoothly and seamlessly as possible and provide the support they need thereafter.”
Ziptech prides itself on being at the forefront of providing SMBs with the types of IT services that they need to run their businesses efficiently. They were one of the first UK IT Services companies to offer packaged Cloud Computing appraisals and are seeing more interest in this across clients and prospect groups.
Jim Simpson concludes: “There is definitely the interest in Cloud Computing – some of our clients are already running some applications in the Cloud. We believe that over the next 12 months this hybrid approach will become more common with several clients making the leap to running everything in the Cloud. They know it’s only a matter of time before it’s the way all businesses operate.”
