JTC Takes Cloud Computing to the SKY

When your business loses its data it can be hard to get in touch with those charged with keeping it.
That’s why JTC, Inc. in Manassas developed SKY Hosting technology. It’s a brand new, unique service designed for small to mid-sized businesses that don’t want to invest thousands of dollars of capital funds into a dedicated server. SKY Hosting is a local cloud-based server option that provides business-level server hosting, Exchange, data back-up, all necessary software and licensing, support and monitoring, at a fraction of the cost of a full server.
“We’re making this a cost-effective solution for many businesses, because often times it’s not cost-effective to have your own dedicated server. We provide the service, which is in the cloud, as well as support seven days a week, 24 hours hours a day, 365 days a year,” said JTC spokeswoman Kristen Maxey.
A June 29 derecho storm that knocked out power for many in the region is one of the reasons why the SKY technology is perfect for small businesses.
“The SKY solution is local in a secure data center, so in the event of a major catastrophe causing Internet outages, many users who have their data stored with places like Google simply can’t call Google for help. Because the infrastructure and data is local we can still get them their data to keep their business functioning,” said Maxey.
It takes less than a week for the technology to be implemented at a new business.
