Beyond basic storage fulfillment, cloud computing provides a pool of resources that organizations can tap into quickly and from anywhere. Evolve Technologies pools resources in the cloud add to both the storage capacity and the technological evolution of a company.

Evolve Technologies knows cloud computing also creates greater efficiencies.  A company upgrading to a new technology no longer needs to add new infrastructure or purchase new hardware.  Cloud based applications can be accessed though a web browser, a desktop computer, or a mobile phone app. The data is stored on and entrusted to remote servers. The two founding concepts of cloud computing are converged infrastructure and shared services.  With cloud computing, there is no need to install software on each and every device used by the company; employees simply log on to an internet service using the cloud computing system to access their information database.
