The Cloud, it's like some magical buzz word that gets IT managers and CEOs to throw large amounts of money to take advantage of something they think they need. We'll the truth is, you do need it but it doesn't have to cost a lot. We specialize in setting our clients up with Microsoft's Azure Cloud.
You can put a website, a web application, data and a lot more in the cloud. Azure offers the ability to duplicate your applications to 19 data centers around the world so on the rare chance that one goes down another one spins up in milliseconds so there is zero downtime.
Multiple data centers are located in the United States but we look at your user base and try to select the closest data center to where the majority of users will be logging in from. Your data is secure in a Microsoft Azure data center.
Most sites and applications can be hosted in the cloud for anywhere from $25-$100 per month. Usually when costs go up, it's a good thing, because it means your site is getting more traffic and therefor a good problem to have.
We attend conferences every year and stay in touch with the developers and team leads building Microsoft Azure, this helps us stay ahead of our competition and gives us the best training for all the new cloud features.
