Every Cloud Needs a Pilot

In 1996 we pioneered the managed services concept and helped create the Managed Services Provider model that so many others claim to be doing today, but while they were catching up we were driving ahead and recognizing that for some business the day was coming when racks of servers in their offices would be a thing of the past.

That day has arrived. Starting this year JustWorks is now delivering completely cloud-based I.T. infrastructure for businesses with no physical servers, no Active Directory™, and no worries!

Incredibly efficient, effective and simple cloud services that span the range from file services to directory to telephony and online meetings are now all available from JustWorks with 0 delay, $0 startup and 0 commitment. Everything works together, everything is secure, and everything is managed by your very own cloud pilot – it just works!

Navigating this new cloud world is not for the faint of heart, littered with the wreckage of failed vendors and integration turbulence. That’s why you need an experienced pilot who can navigate the skies with you every step of the way. We Make IT Simple. Just step on board for a fixed monthly fee per user and the next thing you know you’ll be relaxing in the comfort of your very own private jet through the clouds, answering your calls anywhere in the world, opening offices with just a WiFi access point, and onboarding new employees in minutes.

Contact us if you’re interesting in joining our growing list of cloud enabled customers.

 

 

The Future of Work + Phone

As more and more people have smarter and smarter phones in their pockets, the challenge of integrating those devices in a way that allows us to manage our life and our work without having to carry multiple devices is key to making IT work.

The answer is going to be the kind of solution that VMware demonstrated today at VMworld 2012.

A “firewall” for your phone

The new Horizon for iOS app allows your business to create an isolated environment on a smartphone that your employee also uses for their personal matters. It’s like having an Internet firewall, only in this case the separation is between corporate data and personal data.

This short video shows how this kind of app is going to work:

This is just a sneak peek into the future, Horizon for iOS will be available later this year or early 2013, so don’t hold your breath just yet.

The cloud is the future

The future of IT is cloud services: accessed from anywhere, using the best device for the user in the place and at the time they find themselves… and much of the time that device is going to be a smartphone.

The key is going to be creating this kind of secure micro-environment, in which the business can set the policies it needs to protect its data, without affecting the usefulness of the device for the user.
