“Cloud Storage and Backup For Personal & Small Business Use”

image“Cloud Computing” has become a familiar term, but many people are uncertain what it is or how it applies to their personal and business computer use.  On Tuesday, February 4, Information Technology Consultant Joe Budelis of Persimmon Telecommunications will present “Cloud Storage and Backup for Personal and Small Business Use”.

In simplest terms Budelis describes the Cloud as a network of servers that can communicate and provide services over the Internet.

“Many Cloud solutions exist that can be very useful to individuals and businesses, particularly by providing a way of storing and accessing data and programs on the network rather than on your computer’s hard drive.”

During his presentation Budelis will review some of the better free and low cost options such as Google Drive, SkyDrive, Mozy and Dropbox.

“All of these options have paid versions for those who need more space or functionality. The audience will also learn about some Cloud options and features available over and above simply providing storage.”

As head of Persimmon Telecommunications, Budelis offers his business clients his broad experience working in IT and as a consultant in such diverse positions as Senior Financial Analyst, SAS Data Analyst, Business Infrastructure Manager and Data Base Administer.  He also holds a PhD in Decision and Control from Harvard University.  Currently, through his company and a team of Telecom service experts, he assists businesses in finding cost-effective telecommunications and Cloud solutions. His primary focus is on consulting and selling such services as those available on the Cloud, as well as T1, DS3, Fast Ethernet, Gig-E and OC3 voice and data, MPLS, SIP, VoIP phone services and conferencing services.  Additional information is available at
