Get the Most Out of Cloud Hosting

Ah the eternal IT question for IT pros in small and medium-sized businesses—on-premise or cloud hosting? The question is particularly pertinent for IT pros considering on-site and cloud VPN solutions, since keeping workers connected in an increasingly mobile landscape is no small feat.

There's a lot that goes into deciding whether to move to the cloud. Most concerns center on things like control, security, and affordability. We believe that as more and more organizations make the move, the benefits to cloud hosting begin to really pay off.

According to a recent survey from the accounting software maker MYOB, small businesses enjoy higher revenues when they switch to the cloud. Likewise, the technology reseller CDW recently polled 1200 small business cloud users and found cloud hosting enabled increased efficiency, cost savings, and more innovation. Microsoft also recently commissioned a study that found small businesses are losing billions of dollars each year on lost IT productivity.

Cloud networking is great for businesses that need fast, always-on network connectivity without expensive and complicated on-premise hardware, configuration, maintenance, and forklift upgrades. Pertino's cloud-based networking platform lets IT pros spin up new cloud networks in minutes, running over top tier data centers around the world. As Pertino expands its platform to provide even more network functions as virtual services, there's even more reason to dump the hardware, and the headaches, that come with traditional VPN.
