What is Cloud Computing?

John Leishman, CEO and owner of Tursa Group, discusses the advantages of Cloud computing.

There’s a lot of talk about cloud computing. What is cloud computing?

“Well firstly, I want to mention we’ve been using virtual servers in the cloud specifically Amazon for over 4 and a half years now. And we’re also Google Apps resellers so the advantage of the cloud, from my perspective anyways, is simplification of an organization’s network. The best example of this is the adoption of Google Apps and Office 365 for management of email. Instead of having your own in-house mails server, this leads to better reliability, reduced costs and increased flexibility.

I have a number of videos that talk specifically about Cloud technology and how we deploy it for ourselves and for our customers. But like I said, Cloud technology simply reduces the complexity and costs and introduce more flexibility for organizations whether it’s email hosting or hosted accounting solutions or hosted CRM solutions such as SalesForce or Sugar.
