Microsoft Places is a great solution that aims to solve this problem. Read on to learn more. [...]
Many companies are moving to a hybrid cloud computing environment. And while there are several advantages to doing this, managing one comes with some challenges. In this article, we’ll talk about the best practices for efficient management of a hybrid cloud environment. [...]
For many small- and medium-sized businesses (SMBs), the cloud is the cornerstone of their IT strategy. By leveraging the cloud, SMBs can improve efficiency, reduce costs, and gain a competitive edge.
There are various cloud strategies that SMBs can choose from: single public cloud, single private cloud, hybrid cloud, and multi-cloud. But in this blog post, we'll zero in on a multi-cloud strategy and assess whether it's viable for SMBs. [...]
Cloud computing is the delivery of servers, storage systems, networks, databases, and other computer resources via the internet. Before the development of cloud technology, companies relied on their own in-house servers to deliver programs and data to end-users' computers.

Many small- and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) find it more practical to use cloud services than maintain an on-premises (on-prem) system. Learn how SMBs benefit from cloud computing: [...]
To understand what a hosted desktop is, let's first take a look at Software-as-a-Service or SaaS. Unlike a software program that’s installed on your laptop, a SaaS app is hosted on the cloud and delivered to your device over the internet. When you use a SaaS app, your device becomes an input interface and output display, but the processing and storing of data is done in the cloud.
Now, think of the apps and functionalities a computer has, but delivered to your device in one neat package over the cloud. This package is a hosted desktop, which is also referred to as Desktop-as-a-Service or DaaS. [...]
In most cases, migrating your business apps from in-house servers to the cloud makes sense. Your apps can leverage greater processing power, memory, and storage in the cloud than in an on-premises (on-prem) system.

Your staff would need to access one system to utilize on-prem apps and another to tap cloud-based apps, often at the same time. This is not as simple as it sounds. [...]
