Non-profit takes recommendation to migrate its technology needs to the cloud

Atlanta, GA -- January 31, 2011 -- ProviDyn®, a provider of IT support, strategy and services for small and medium-sized businesses, announced today it has migrated Partnership Against Domestic Violence (PADV) to private cloud services. Taking advantage of ProviDyn’s private cloud will allow the organization to better share information across multiple locations, efficiently and cost effectively.

Six months ago, PADV selected ProviDyn to provide managed technology services for its headquarters and two satellite locations. ProviDyn was able to assess and stabilize the organization’s existing network and provide recommendations for upgrading equipment when the budget became available. To conserve funds, ProviDyn suggested that PADV consider private cloud services which would conserve budget, offer seamless sharing of data and information across locations and give the organization access to a stable server environment and updated applications.

“Private cloud services can make a world of difference for a small or medium sized business that might not have the resources, space or cash flow to create and maintain a solid technology infrastructure,” said Hamish Davidson, president and co-founder of ProviDyn. “PADV is a great example of how moving to a private cloud can allow a business to do more, with less money and fewer hassles.”

“The cloud has increased our operational efficiency and delivered a truly cost effective solution to sharing information across our network,” said Meagan Fulmer, vice president of development for PADV. “ProviDyn’s technology enhanced the way our teams collaborate which makes it a lot easier for us to save the women and children we serve.”
