Welcome To The World of Cloud Services
By: mindSHIFT Technologies on Thursday, December 22, 2011


Today’s workforce is increasingly mobile. The traditional office job is evolving. Whether working in the field, traveling or telecommuting, the need for reliable, secure, and highly available access to work resources and data is growing. With the proliferation of affordable high-speed networks, Wi-Fi coverage and mobile devices, employees are able to work and be productive from virtually anywhere.

Enter the world of cloud computing. More and more businesses are moving away from the traditional IT infrastructure of purchasing servers, managing expensive licensing, and storing applications and data on local workstations by transitioning to a cloud platform. Cloud computing is challenging the classic IT infrastructure model by completely changing the way you store information and run applications. Instead of installing software and saving data on an individual workstation, everything is hosted on servers in the cloud and accessed via the Internet.

mindSHIFT's cloud computing platform, cloudSHIFTSM, provides small and medium businesses with access to enterprise-class IT services previously unavailable to them.

The cloudSHIFT service portfolio includes:

  • cloudSHIFTSM Applications: eliminates the need to purchase software or hardware by allowing users to access a suite of secure cloud application services.
  • cloudSHIFTSM Desktop: allows access to software traditionally located on a user's desktop through a web browser without the need to purchase, manage and maintain desktop equipment. The software is housed and managed on servers in mindSHIFT's secure datacenters.
  • cloudSHIFTSM Server: enables businesses to realize the benefits of virtualization and take advantage of mindSHIFT's expertise, support and facilities without spending money, time and resources required to maintain a server on-premises.
  • cloudSHIFTSM VoIP: provides businesses with the benefits of an enterprise-grade phone system while allowing for offsite disaster recovery protection, lower initial costs and a simplified user interface.
