Major steps in innovation and efficiency can sometime require leaders to think of solutions differently.

You need to find smarter, creative ways to control your infrastructure and operational costs while delivering on the business need. Application and infrastructure consolidated can deliver an incremental return on investment and more efficient IT operation. Done right, consolidating Linux workloads and infrastructure can create major gains in efficiency.

Real Estate CEO Turns to the Cloud to Solve Her IT Woes: InfoStreet Helps Rehab Keys2Day's Antiquated IT for Enhanced …

TARZANA, CA–(Marketwire -03/27/12)- InfoStreet Inc., Cloud pioneer and provider of Cloud-based applications (apps), was chosen as provider of choice by Keys2Day Real Estate Team. When the company that managed the Web-based email servers at Syreeta Saunders-Keys’ eight-year-old real estate firm kept breaking down, she realized that she needed a centralized system where she and her six employees could access email, store documents, and monitor the tasks from anywhere and at any time. Saunders-Keys was using four different vendors to host file sharing, email archiving, calendars, Web maintenance and other IT necessities; all of which cost her $750 per month. Yet, her team could only access their email via Webmail and the vendor wasn’t syncing their email and calendars to all of their devices. Syreeta was frustrated that she was spending nearly all her time mired in an IT disaster instead of spending her time on her team and growing her sales base.

To reign in control, Syreeta decided to “Move to the Cloud” to solve her problems. She explored multiple options but, ultimately, chose InfoStreet to provide Keys2Day with a secure intranet system. They now employ this cloud-based software for nearly every aspect of their IT needs (from email, to email archiving, to shared Address Books, to shared Calendars, to File Sharing, and more).

“We all come from big business backgrounds, so we easily understood the value of having a central company environment where we can find everything in one place. We needed a comprehensive intranet and InfoStreet delivered,” said Jeanine Whitehead, a member of the Keys2Day team. According to Tyrone Keys, head of IT for the members of the Keys2Day team, “In the end, InfoStreet made sense of our [previous] IT disaster and just made things simple. They have quickly become a vital partner for us and for our future growth.”

Since implementing this technology, Keys2Day says that they’ve seen marked increases in efficiency, tracking, reporting, management, sales, operations and communications, both internally and with their remote staff. In fact, Saunders-Keys, who brought in $7.1 million in sales in 2010, estimates that their increased efficiencies have allowed them to be more competitive in the marketplace and can be directly attributed to about a 30-percent increase in business since the implementation and a direct savings of several hundred dollars per month.

OS33 Provides End Users with Unified Cloud Consumption Reporting, Billing

NEW YORK, March 28, 2012 /PRNewswire/ –OS33, the feature-rich IT-as-a-Service Delivery Platform, today announced the immediate release of its unified cloud consumption reporting and billing tool that enables companies to assess how they utilize multiple cloud resources and services through a single, easy-to-understand Webtop window.

(Logo: http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20100810/NY47221LOGO)

OS33’s unified cloud consumption reporting and billing tool provides a complete view of a customer’s cloud utilization across all services, including consumption of software licenses, application management services, servers and storage infrastructure, and multi-tenant cloud services resources, by company, cost center or user on a daily basis. Typically, other vendor platforms are focused on the delivery of one specific cloud service. With OS33’s unified IT platform, organizations have one view for multiple cloud services, and can then use this information to shift resources, increase efficiency, eliminate redundancy, and better control cloud consumption spending.

“To have gotten a full dashboard of how we were utilizing cloud resources within our organization, we would have had to track the individual components from each individual vendor and provider of all of our various cloud applications and services,” said Wayne Wilson, IT Director of Supply Chain Solutions, Inc.”This process is time consuming and inefficient. We now have an easy-to-analyze way of understanding how we consume our IT resources and can easily discover inefficiencies.”

OS33’s cloud consumption reporting and billing tool gives unified insight into:

“The ability to fully leverage the cloud comes with the need to utilize multiple technologies from various vendors. Each has their own consumption metrics, logins, and interfaces,” said Jacob Kazakevich, OS33 President.

“With so much varied utilization data, customers always ask ‘What am I paying for?’ Our unified consumption reporting empowers companies of all sizes to better understand how they consume IT resources, help them reconcile invoices with actual utilization and to discover any discrepancies or inefficiencies in their IT spending with a single unified bill from one vendor. This functionality simplifies the cloud consumption process and puts control and information into the customer’s hands in an easy-to-comprehend format.”

Unified cloud consumption reporting and billing is built into the OS33 unified IT platform at no additional charge. For more information, please visit http://www.os33.com/whats-new/ and the OS33 Blog at http://blog.os33.com/. Interested parties can also sign up for a no-obligation demonstration of OS33 at http://www.os33.com/learn-more/schedule-a-demo/.

CIOs Plan to Increase Cloud Spending

Six out of 10 U.S. companies already have at least one application in the cloud, and 71 percent expect to increase spending on cloud services in the next 12 months, according to a recent IDG Enterprise survey of 554 IT professionals, including 357 heads of IT.

Most respondents (64 percent) agreed with the statement that cloud computing will mean higher costs in the short term, but will save money in the long term.

Barr Snyderwine, CIO of Hargrove, an events management company, says using the public cloud is his way of keeping costs down. The company is using an online collaboration tool for document sharing because “it’s so cheap I can’t say no,” he says. “We are probably saving money in the long run on the [business] continuity side.”

In fact, 84 percent of the survey respondents cited business continuity as the top business driver for their cloud investments. Snyderwine says he is also looking to put Microsoft’s Exchange in the cloud as part of his continuity plan. “The comfort of having completely redundant servers is very, very attractive,” he says.

In the survey, respondents said other top business reasons for moving IT to cloud services include speed of deployment, gaining the flexibility to react to market conditions, and improving customer support.

Tim Walter, CIO of CrossCom National, a retail systems provider, has a different reason: He’s moving company data into a private cloud in hopes of achieving greater data consistency and integration. “You can get systems in the same cloud to talk [to each other],” Walter says.

But putting data in the cloud also carries risks: 70 percent of the respondents said security concerns are the top barrier to their adoption of cloud computing.

Walter says one challenge is having data from different types of customers in the cloud, because each customer has different security needs. “We look at who requires the tightest [security] levels and try to work everyone else toward [those],” he says.

TeamDrive 3.0 Unveiled at CeBIT: Brings Enterprise-Grade Security to Cloud File Sharing on the iPhone, iPad and Android

TeamDrive 3.0 will help enterprises implement Bring Your Own Device policies without worrying about leaking confidential data or intellectual property when employees access files on the go

Hannover, Germany – March 6th 2012 – Enterprise cloud synchronization provider TeamDrive today released a new client platform that brings security and privacy to the mobile access of cloud data. TeamDrive 3.0 adds secure clients for iOS and Android smart phones and tablets to the existing Mac, PC and Linux secure clients. It also makes significant enhancements to the underlying technology, adding RSA-2048 encryption to invitations to share AES-256 encrypted files on a TeamDrive Space.

The new TeamDrive 3.0 clients, downloadable from the TeamDrive website, will be on show at CeBIT in Hannover, Germany this week. TeamDrive’s iPhone and iPad apps are in the final stages of testing and will be live in the App Store in March. Android and iOS customers should register on the TeamDrive website to receive an email as soon as the apps are available in Android Market or the Apple App Store: http://www.teamdrive.com/teamdrive3. Support for Blackberry and Windows Mobile Phones will be available this summer.

TeamDrive’s approach to cloud storage for the enterprise is highly secure: All of the data are encrypted on your computer before they are uploaded. Furthermore, unlike similar cloud synchronization tools, businesses can use TeamDrive with their choice of server, whether it is private cloud, public cloud, TeamDrive cloud or on-site. Instead of being pushed into a public cloud, in other words, companies can use TeamDrive to run their own private service with the contents remaining fully under company control, on company-owned and company-managed servers.

TeamDrive is currently the only cloud synchronization tool with a data protection seal of approval.

Volker Oboda, CEO of TeamDrive, said, “The issue around BYOD is in fact LYOD. Our new smart phone apps will make it easy for enterprises to implement Bring Your Own Device policies without worrying about employee Losing Their Own Device incidents. The freedom to use your own server and securely access your TeamDrive Space from a smart phone makes TeamDrive the best cloud synchronization tool for enterprises that want to share files, but still want to protect their intellectual property.”

TeamDrive customer Dr. Anthony Beck, DART Project Champion and Research Fellow in the School of Computing at the University of Leeds, commented on why the University of Leeds uses TeamDrive.

Dr. Beck said, “Instead of our data being held on Dropbox’s servers in the cloud (Dropbox actually uses Amazon’s cloud service), we can host them on our own servers. Therefore, we all access local files from a ‘shared space’. In theory, this means we all work on the most up-to-date information. We can’t use Dropbox or other cloud data storage companies that are not a signatory to Safe Harbor. As everything is maintained on our own servers, TeamDrive is Safe Harbor compliant.”

He added, “The ability to use our own servers for shared cloud storage is fantastic. Essentially we have an unlimited storage capacity which we can easily share with colleagues throughout the world at any institution. This really helps collaboration. The smart phone application will provide the final piece allowing us to access data whilst ‘on the go’.”

The new TeamDrive smart phone applications have many built-in features, such as a photo-sharing tool, that make it much easier to ensure secure, seamless collaboration. These feature-rich mobile applications are perfect for enterprises seeking the most secure way to enhance remote collaboration and offer always-on access to office files, photos, music, videos and more – even when offline.
