(Video) Cloud Computing Is Great But It’s Not for Everyone – Jim Lippe, Thrive Networks/Staples

Jim Lippie is President of Thrive Networks, a division of Staples. He speaks with Ramon Ray, Editor & Technology Evangelist, Smallbiztechnology.com about cloud computing and why it’s not necessarily a solution for every growing business. Some businesses might choose to use a combination of cloud computing and a traditional server. Others might find that a traditional client/server network environment is best for them.

Other topics discussed include:

  • Cloud computing is a very important movement, but that does not mean that clients need to move to it immediately.
  • We determine what applications make sense to move to cloud computing.
  • Hybrid solutions may be an option.
  • How Thrive works – agents report back and we work on issues before they become problems.
