Cloud Computing

Outsourcing IT services to the cloud is an exciting alternative to conventional heavyweight IT services provision. 

Why Cloud Computing?

The benefits of incorporating a cloud computing platform into the work environment can include:
  • Spectacular savings in IT manpower, licensing, backup and infrastructure costs
  • Increased worker mobility and connectivity
  • Enhanced effectiveness through built-in collaboration, communication and publishing tools. 
  • An ability to refocus manpower and resources on critical line-of-business applications

Google Apps

At Helium 3 we use Google Apps with great success. Google Apps provides:
  • A full, secure and powerful messaging solution with 25Gb of email per user and excellent spam protection.
  • Office applications including work processing, spreadsheets and presentations.
  • Centralised contacts, user and resource calendaring, document sharing and other collaboration applications with offline modes.
  • Instant messaging including voice and video calls.
  • Many other services
  • High scalability, availability and continued enhancements to all of the above.

Quick Introduction to Google Apps

Google Apps for Education and Non-Profit organisations is free. Business users have an annual flat per user charge (currently $50 USD ) for all of the above.
