Hi all, how can you run a company off of the cloud? The cloud is currently focused very tightly on the SMB space. While it is expanding into the enterprise space it isn’t there yet and it will be a while before it gets there. Below is a sample mapping that a small business might be able to use in order to have zero on-site servers. Technically this could make their workforce 100% mobile while reducing your licensing, hardware and maintenance costs to close to zero as well.
Email Server = Gmail
File Server = DropBox
Printer Server = Network based printer
Backups = BackBlaze
Company Specific Apps = RackSpace cloud servers
Until next time,
