The move to the cloud is happening in organizations large and small.
The explosion in use of cloud services is continuing according to the latest research from the Cloud Industry Forum, a body dedicated to supporting cloud providers. In June 2014, 250 senior IT and business decision-makers took part in a poll conducted by Vanson Bourne to understand their use of cloud services and the impact on their business strategies.
What does the survey reveal? We’ve summarized their key findings:
So how can your business make the transition to the cloud without losing your bearings or negatively impacting your operations? Brush Mountain Data Center’s FLxCloud services bring you the benefits of “cloud compute on demand” with local advice and expertise from the staff at Advanced Logic Industries.

Technology has become pervasive in our work and personal lives. Today the IT systems that run even a modest sized organization have become incredibly specialized and complex. There is an underlying expectation that all these digital services should ‘just work.’
With this expectation, a complex tangle of technology support pressures fall on the shoulders of the IT support staff. Unfortunately, it’s no longer possible for 1 or 2 people to be technology “jacks of all trades”.
This increase in IT complexity and expectations gave our management team an idea: to offer a new service at Brush Mountain Data Center called FLxCloud that would allow organizations to shift the burden of IT support complexity and resources to a more cost efficient and flexible option.
FLxCloud is not a “one size fits all” cloud service. Instead, it encompasses both the ability to both rent cloud-based IT resources on demand and leverage ALI’s IT support services to fill in any expertise gaps or resource shortfalls. Even better, it gives you the ability to allocate and control your cloud. These are benefits you aren’t going to find from the big cloud providers.
Need to shift your IT resources around? No problem. FLxCloud gives you security, flexibility and responsiveness in one predictably priced service.
For example, say you have a project that needs to spin up quickly, but you don’t have the IT infrastructure and extra IT personnel in place. Or it might be a situation where you are not ready to commit to buying more IT infrastructure. With FLxCloud you quickly have our Data Center at your service. We securely set up access to all the IT horsepower and storage you need via the cloud, backed by as much or as little of our IT staff’s services as you would like.
The advantages are easy to see. With FLxCloud, your organization can focus its time and expertise on the innovations and services that make you unique.
