Technology Helps Stop the Spread of COVID-19

Though there are strides being made in the ways of developing a vaccine for Coronavirus, the virus continues to spread globally.

Many people and organizations have begun to take precautions against infection from the virus, and some businesses have even begun to have employees work from home to further mitigate the risks.

While this was something that even just a few years ago may have seemed novel or impossible to pull off, the age of cloud computing and mobile workstations have made it much more viable for businesses to operate remotely.

For many companies, the use of cloud computing comes in tandem with working with a managed services provider.

Vintage IT Services maximizes our expertise and specializations to ensure that networks run smoothly and are efficient enough to facilitate the remote access needed to allow employees to work from home.

Businesses Are Adapting With The Latest Technologies

In the case of viral outbreaks like COVID-19, or any kind of disaster that prevents people from entering their workplace, managed services and cloud computing help ensure that time is not lost on projects, keeping your business growing.

Many of our clients are moving their infrastructure to a cloud network of some sort. Whether our clients are utilizing a hybrid deployment with part of their network housed locally, or fully migrating out to the Vintage cloud solution, it has become apparent that the cloud is not just some trend.

Especially as internet speeds continue to improve and high speeds become more accessible to more people, utilizing cloud servers becomes the more economic choice rather than managing their network in-house.
