Which Cloud Computing Provider is Right for You?

There have been endless discussions surrounding the cloud, type of cloud providers and who is the best provider for you. In this post, we’ll break it down in a simple comparison of apples to oranges, or, rather, Dropbox to Thinspace. In the end, the choice comes down to needs. Personal or business, your needs will determine which type of cloud computing provider is the best fit.

The technology that many are familiar with and even utilize today is Dropbox. While Dropbox is considered a part of cloud technology, there are key differences in its features and functionality that separate it from other cloud technology providers, such as Thinspace.

Dropbox is a simple, widely-used, easy-to-master cloud technology. Dropbox has one main service offering – data storage in the cloud. For the small business, non-profit or solo entrepreneur or individual, Dropbox is the ideal provider as it works equally well on PCs and Macs, Android and iOS. Features like no limits in terms of file size restrictions, 2GB of free data storage upfront, combined with the ability to earn additional storage and more robust data plans starting at just $10/month make Dropbox an easy and cost-effective data storage solution.

For these data- and feature-light users, Dropbox is everything they want and need. But what happens when your business grows in employees and locations? What happens when your technology needs grow beyond your current provider’s services? The answer: You look for a provider that can accommodate your business’ current AND future needs, which are destined to evolve as your business evolves.

In order for businesses to continue growing and competing effectively in the market, it’s important to move beyond free storage and find opportunities to scale your operations through improvements in technology. Consider a provider that does not require high upfront costs of purchasing and installing hardware across the business, only to require upgrades a year later. Cloud computing is an area of the market that is generally affordable and effective at servicing these necessary evils (i.e. improvements).

Thinspace’s unique product and service offering is designed to allow small and medium sized customers to select what they need now such as end-to-end desktop delivery from anywhere (skySpace), or the ability for IT managers to operate from a centralized management platform and deploy applications to users instantly and seamless from anywhere (skyControl). Customers always have option to add-on more expansive services as they grow or reduce services as their needs change.

To recap, cloud technology providers such as Dropbox, while limited in their offering, make for perfect cloud partners for data and feature light users. Growing small and medium-sized enterprises could better benefit from cloud computing providers like Thinspace that offer affordable, reliable and scalable solutions that can grow with the business.

Publicly traded under the ticker symbol THNS, Thinspace is the ultimate provider reliable, scalable and affordable application delivery, virtualization, and cloud client technology to public and private sector companies and organizations of all sizes.

Zero clients are fixed-function devices, preconfigured with one protocol, so it poses a vendor lock-in issue
