Here V1 VoIP explains a brief overview on three different cloud-computing options for our resellers to offer businesses:

Software as a Service (SaaS): SaaS is a form of cloud computing that is able to send a solo application through a browser in order to reach its intended customers. Many types of HR departments often use this form of cloud computing. It is popular because it is easy use of and offers a variety of desktop applications available. SaaS is widely accepted to have been introduced to the business world by the Salesforce Customer Relationship Management (CRM) product. As one of the earliest entrants it is not surprising that CRM is the most popular SaaS application area, however e-mail, financial management, customer service and expense management have also gotten good uptake via SaaS.

Platform as a Service (PaaS): PaaS is a variation on SaaS because this platform allows a business to create their own applications. When communicating with their customers, these applications can be utilized. PaaS is especially useful in any situation where multiple developers will be working on a development project or where other external parties need to interact with the development process.

Utility Computing (UC): Many businesses are starting to use UC platforms more commonly as the many features that come along with utility computing become more necessary in day to day business.

Cloud Disaster Recovery Tips and Advice from V1 VoIP

V1 VoIP gives tips and advice and how your business cna survive a natural disaster and urges resellers and their customers to have an emergency disaster recovery plan in place with the cloud

One of the most important reasons that V1 VoIP gives both customers and resellers for deploying a cloud based system is natural disaster preparedness. V1 VoIP urges resellers and their customers that disaster recovery is a feature no VoIP based business should be without. Whether it’s a hurricane, earthquake, lightning strike, tornado, or flood, natural disasters occur and it’s important that your business know how to handle them when they do.

Cloud services allow for remote data storage and access when physical files cannot be accessed or they are damaged or permanently destroyed. Because all business-related data is stored virtually so that when a disaster occurs such as a fire or a flood, the data is not lost. This is made possible by the rerouting of calls to other terminals like cellular phones and voice mails. In other cases where remote offices are not reachable because of power failure or natural disaster, the calls can be transferred to other persons or branch offices that are reachable. This type of solution builds in redundancy and recognizes that getting back to normal often isn’t just about getting data back, but also keeping operations going remotely while repairing or replacing local hardware.

The key for natural disaster preparedness is knowing how to keep the business running (continuity) and how to restore everything to normal (recovery). Here are some of the questions V1 VoIP encourages it’s resellers to ask their business customers:

1. What types of disasters are likely to happen in your geographic area? Are you in California dealing with earthquakes or in Florida where they have hurricanes. The type of disaster you might deal with will determine many different things.

2. What data, hardware and software are essential for operations? Essential meaning what will keep you up and running.

3. What security and corporate compliance regulations affect your business? What is the chain of command for vital business decisions?

4. Which employees, partners and customers must have access? Add to that, what specifically do those people need access to? What resources will staff need to keep working from alternate locations?
