Cloud Services from Office 365 to CompleteCloud

Whether you are considering a small step to cloud services by moving your email server environment to Office 365, or ready to take a giant leap and rid your workers of PC’s to our Complete Cloud Solution powered by Avatara, Great Lakes Computer is ready to guide you and manage your transition.

Small Step: Office 365

Office 365 is a great first step to the cloud. Move your business office applications from Microsoft (MS Word, Powerpoint, Excel, Outlook) away from your local servers which you have to maintain and update, to a cloud-based service, rendering it easily accessible to your team, consistently up-to-date, and secure.

Bigger Step: Business Applications in the Cloud

Many businesses are moving their daily business applications to the cloud, including their CRM, Quickbook accounting software, or data backup and recovery solutions. With cloud services, businesses of all sizes reap the benefits of not having to deploy physical infrastructure like file and e-mail servers, storage systems or shrink-wrapped software. Plus, the “anywhere, anytime” availability of these solutions, means hassle-free collaboration among business partners and employees using the ubiquitous browser.

Giant Leap: Never Buy a PC Again!

“The cloud” is a metaphor for any server-based infrastructure—whether you’re hosting data, applications, or both. What this means is that somewhere there sits a physical server hosting information that you are accessing from another device, most likely remotely.

There are several different types of cloud computing. Our partner in cloud computing, Avatara, has put together a run-through of them all and the variation among them, including their revolutionary CompleteCloud Product.

With CompleteCloud, you’ll never have to buy another PC again! How so? Thanks to “Thin Clients,” your computer is virtual and is linked to data centers. The data centers are comprised of interlinked super-computers that replicate your existing PC and will eliminate the drain on your resources from constantly updating and replacing equipment!

We understand that no two businesses are alike – and as such, each business has unique technology needs. We’ll work closely with you in every stage of IT management – from system design and product selection to implementation and management – providing continual support and guidance along the way. We have the experience, knowledge and capabilities necessary to meet the individual needs of your business.
