When it comes to cloud computing, V1 offers three different cloud computing platforms.

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.

V1 Explains: What is Cloud Hosted PBX VoIP

V1 VoIP explains what cloud hosted PBX is, what it does its features, capabilities and how resellers can help their business customers run more efficiently and save them moneyA virtual PBX, also known as hosted PBX, is a cloud-based phone system that offers a hosted service offered to V1 customers and resellers. PBX is an abbreviation for Private Branch Exchange and it distributes the features and capabilities of a PBX telephone system without the hassle of owning and maintaining a PBX equipment. It is mostly used by businesses so they can route external calls through a network of phone lines.

Due to the high cost associated with the installation and maintenance of PBX systems, these were previously only used by bigger companies. Now that V1 VoIP has brought the costs way down, it can be afforded by businesses of all sizes. A hosted PBX is the most affordable alternative phone solution for a business, and it works with any VoIP, SIP compliant IP phone, softphone, or even an analog phone.

A hosted PBX completely replaces the traditional phone system because it is software based, and thus it prevents companies from investing in expensive phone systems for their business operation. In addition, this solution offers easy installation and many additional features. These features include voicemail, conference calling, call auditing, call logs, faxing, automated greetings, and even touch tone menus.

The benefits of installing a hosted PBX include eliminating installation expenses, up-front capital investment, and future operating expenses, which you would normally have to pay when using a traditional phone system. A hosted PBX telephone system is like having a phone system in your office with the exception that the features and functions are running from the servers. This system is self-managed via a web portal and provides the host a variety of features. This helps you save costs of buying your own telephone system and significantly reduces your communications expenses.

Businesses use hosted PBX systems to organize the volume of calls they receive in order to reroute them to the appropriate departments. PBX is a wired switchboard system; its primary function is to route external calls to a series of internal phone lines. This is done by rerouting the caller to someone within the network or to an extension. To use a hosted PBX, you simply need to connect the IP-enabled handsets to your internet connection. Then that’s it; you are now ready to make and receive calls with using your phone service.

Since the PBX is cloud hosted at an alternative location, the customer can significantly reduce his or her initial capital expenditure and is relieved from responsibilities, as the service provider will be the one responsible for the connection of the system, porting of the phones, and other various IT-related functions. Moreover, the service provider will be the one managing the PBX. On the other hand, one main drawback in using a hosted PBX is the lack of ownership of a PBX system. Since the switch is owned and managed by the telecommunications company, the customer is dependent on whether the PBX runs successfully or fails.

With V1 VoIP cloud hosted PBX, companies no longer need to invest in physical phone systems. Everything is remotely maintained by a third-party communications company. This solution dramatically lowers the cost of a virtual PBX system thereby enabling small businesses and freelancers or contractors to adopt the advanced technology of larger companies.
