The move to cloud computing is changing the landscape of IT in significant and far-reaching ways. Traditionally when you buy computing power you pay for that power whether you use it or not. Cloud computing offers substantial economic advantages because you only pay for the computing resources that you actually you. And you dynamically increase or decrease those resources as your needs dictate. VISI is in a unique position to deliver cloud computing services to our customers. We are the largest Minnesota-based provider of data center and hosting services and have big network pipes and tons of Internet bandwidth. Most importantly, we have experienced technologists that are building the largest cloud computing infrastructure in Minnesota. Jason Baker with VISI will provide an overview of VISI's cloud services and how they can help your business succeed. He will also provide a live demo of how it will work.
