The Cloud Area Network

A business technology ecosystem.

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.

Cloud Productivity Solutions

When business data resides in the cloud, businesses can be assured that their critical documents are always backed up. In addition, using a third party provider to manage all or a portion of your infrastructure in the cloud frees you and your staff from the responsibility of costly on-site server management.

The transition also frees your budget eliminating the need for upfront capital expenditures. Your IT expenditures become affordably priced services that are expensed monthly rather than capital purchases that must be paid up front.

Cloud Infrastructure Solutions

ManageWatch can virtualize your current server infrastructure and host it in our cloud. This means that you no longer have to worry about having servers in your office, thus eliminating the need to buy new server hardware every few years.

We provide the hardware platform, the infrastructure support, and the backups. You provide the software licensing.


Custom Application Hosting

We can provide a platform and support for your company to deliver hosted applications to your customers. Hosted Applications can be delivered in a variety of ways, and ManageWatch is well-equipped to support them.

Even traditional client-server windows applications that are not web-based can be delivered in a Hosted model. As a Microsoft Partner, we can also deliver any Microsoft applications and their licenses as well that are required by your application (e.g. MS-SQL Server, MS Office, etc.).

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. ”

The ManageWatch Cloud Experience

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.”

Lisa M.


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
