CloudPoint Technology the Home of Free Will Managed IT For Businesses

You know the absolute worst part about phone contracts, cable contracts, many gym memberships, and even most agreements for Managed IT Services? It’s those dang year-long contracts you’re locked into. With many of these services you are locked into a contract for the full term whether you decide halfway through you don’t like the service or not, unless you want to pay a big fee to get out of it for breaking the contract. We do things differently here at CloudPoint Technology because we hate being stuck in those long-term contracts too. All we ask of our Managed IT Services customers is that they sign an agreement stating they will give us 30 days notice before stopping our service. That’s it.

This happened recently. A non-managed services customer recently contacted us about an ailing workstation on their network. This machine was giving them fits, and was single-handedly disrupting an entire office’s workflow. It would shut down sometimes mid-operation. It would also process things really slowly. There was obviously something...Read More >

The Remedy for Your Slow Office Computers and Losses in Efficiency is Low-Cost, Hybrid Cloud

Eventually there comes a time in a computer network’s life when it’s just no longer up to the task of meeting its office’s needs. One reason might be the server just doesn’t have enough power to keep up. Another reason, and one that is far more common, is after years of stuffing it full of files and applications, the server is starting to run out of storage space. This leaves business owners and decision makers staring face-to-face with an expensive decision that has to be addressed sooner rather than later. It doesn’t have to be so stressful a situation though. There are alternatives out there to make this scenario a thing of the past. A network running entirely from a server located on-premises, aka right down the hall, only has a finite amount of space to fill before it needs upgraded to something bigger, better, and yes, more expensive, especially if it means replacing the entire server. This could be...Read More >
