Cloud computing is the future of services, but most MSPs aren’t sure how to get there or how to get started. Amazon and Microsoft seem like the easy choice, but is the “one-size-fits-all” cloud really the right fit for your business? Commodity cloud has an unprecedented speed of delive...
Nearly every small business is faced with a cash flow shortage at one point or another. For many MSPs, it is a common recurring problem. The irony is that a cash flow crunch is often due to the success of the business, rather than its impending demise. According to FinPacific Treasury ...

With the SharePoint Conference 2014 starting in a couple days I thought I would take a few minutes and talk about increasing SharePoint availability. While building applications may (or may not) be an easy thing to do, maintaining a highly available SharePoint environment isn’t s...
Recently we announced the availability of our high availability / disaster recovery software, Neverfail IT Continuity Engine.  I asked our product management team to help point out some of the values of the product set, and, to be honest, they gave me quite a list!  I wanted to share s...
