CIO Solutions brings Strategic Incentives into their Private Cloud

Santa Barbara – July 12, 2012 – CIO Solutions is enabling and empowering businesses in the Tri-County area with their innovative and flexible Private Cloud service offering. Focusing on efficiency and client-specific needs, CIO has designed a unique Private Cloud environment for Santa Barbara based Strategic Incentives. Due to their private, CIO-operated data center, CIO is able to give businesses more options in how they manage their IT infrastructure.

Current clients characterize the offering as flexible, secure and scalable. Mark Lawrence, owner of Strategic Incentives, stated that it has “Truly given us the freedom to be anywhere at anytime and continue to maintain all of our business objectives in a way that does not compromise customer service or efficiency.” The idea of accessing data anywhere, anytime from any device is very attractive to most businesses. After adding in the benefits of scalability and security, CIO’s Private Cloud service offering is turning out to be a good fit for a range of businesses.

Understanding the benefits of Private Cloud computing compared to Public Cloud offerings from other companies (Amazon and Google to name a few) is important because while they both provide hosted applications, private cloud providers can better meet the needs and wants of small businesses by offering superior customer service and consulting services. Eric Egolf, President of CIO Solutions stated, “CIO’s Private Cloud allows small business, between 10 and 100 employees, to use the applications that they determine are a best fit for their business rather than being forced to use the Public Cloud applications that may not be a right fit. At the end of the day, IT is about making employees more productive and our Private Cloud offering is inline with this goal. In addition, we are a local company and our customers have told us time and time again that this local presence is very important when making changes to one’s IT infrastructure”.

CIO Solutions has been providing IT management and design services to the Tri-County Area since 1986. CIO specializes in helping businesses focus on their core business by designing and managing their IT department. In addition to managing IT networks, CIO also provides consultation on Private Cloud Services, Enterprise Storage, Virtualization, VoIP Phone Systems and other solutions.
