Major Microsoft Shift and Onsite Computer in New Orleans

May 19, 2008

Microsoft, along with several rivals including Google and Salesforce.com, plans on a changing IT business model for clients like those of Onsite Computer Services in New Orleans.  Microsoft plans on tens of millions of email clients moving to its data centers during the next five years. 

According to Chris Capossela, who manages Microsoft’s Office products, Microsoft will see more and more companies abandon their own in-house computer systems and shift to “cloud computing“, a less expensive alternative.

Cloud computing is the trend by Internet powerhouses to array huge numbers of computers in centralized data centers to deliver Web-based applications to far-flung users. In recent years Microsoft has invested billions of dollars in massive data centers, which are the basic infrastructure for a wide range of Web services.  Microsoft has started offering corporate customers the option of having Microsoft run their e-mail, collaboration or sales programs on Microsoft’s computers and delivering those applications over the Web as a monthly subscription service.

At New Orleans Onsite computer services, we understand some may feel cloud computing is a great, cost-effective alternative to the traditional IT concept; however there are a group of our clients who are skeptical about keeping their data on distant computers.  We’ll see… stay tuned.
