What is the cloud?
Where is the cloud?
Are we in the cloud now?

These are all questions you have probably heard or even asked yourself. In the simplest terms, cloud computing means storing and accessing data and programs over the Internet instead of your computer’s hard drive. The cloud is just a metaphor for the Internet. It goes back to the days of flowcharts and presentations that would represent the gigantic server-farm infrastructure of the Internet as nothing but a puffy, white cumulonimbus cloud, accepting connections and managing information as it floats.

Cloud Computing

Mayer Networks is the only IT consulting firm in Southern Illinois to offer its customers a dedicated datacenter. Our datacenter is built on a process called server virtualization which allows customers to have their own resources while sharing from a larger pool of resources. These shared resources allow Mayer Networks to offer cloud computing services at a lower rate compared to customers trying to host servers on their own.

Do not trust another company to house any of your data unless they are properly equipped for the job. Our datacenter is built from 21” of reinforced concrete, additional fiber internet connections, dedicated power with backup generator, and air conditioning. Our redundancy does not merely stop with the internet. Every mechanism in our datacenter is completely constant using various topologies to ensure that everything from networking, routing, and our servers are available regardless of hardware or software failure.

Best of all, your data is with a local company that you can trust, with the skills and knowledge to ensure your data is not only protected and secured from natural disasters, but from the Internet as well. Our data center currently supports dozens of local, regional and national businesses in a variety of ways. Check out the cloud computing services we offer.
