The Cloud Area Network

Not a vendor or staff change; It’s a platform replacement.

What is the CAN

Cloud Area Network is your data in the cloud; complete with access control, data security and help desk services included.  The Cloud Area Network is the latest generation of computing formed out of local area networks, wide area networks and metropolitan area networks.

The Cloud is full of service offerings for business. Each one solves defined business needs (email, file storage, CRM, VoIP, ERP, BI etc.). Most are available on a monthly basis, scale up and down to your actual use, and have short implementation timelines. You are likely already familiar with Microsoft Office 365, as one example.

The cloud area network combines with specific cloud services to meet your specific network requirements.

The Cloud Area Network enables you to do more.
Increase your security and improve your business with a better computing environment. Save money and lower cost with the Cloud.

Business Continuity

“The biggest thing the cloud has provided in my opinion is business continuity. We no longer stand the risk of our old server going down due to age, fire, virus, etc. We basically had no backup and no one was monitoring the systems. Now all of those things are being handled on the back end and we are better positioned for recovery if the worst were to happen. ”

Peace of Mind

“ManageWatch gives us peace of mind. I don’t have to support our technology on my own “flying blind”. I love having ManageWatch deal with Dell and Network Solutions on our behalf.”

MS Office 365 Migration

“One of the big factors for moving to Office 365 is the single platform used by all users. We had a smattering of MS Office versions and this stabilized it. It also allows for new users to be set up relatively quickly as well. The portability through various devices and through the portal is also an important feature.”

-Robert T.

Executive Minister
