Franchises Weigh Options and Choose a Private Cloud Solution for Cost Savings and Reliability

Atlanta, GA -- December 31, 2011 -- ProviDyn, a provider of IT support, strategy and services for small and medium-sized businesses, announced today it has been selected by two local franchise locations of SERVPRO®, a national leader of fire, water, mold and other specialty cleanup and restoration services, to provide managed and private cloud services.

Like many small and medium sized businesses, the franchises of SERVPRO® were faced with a lack of internal resources necessary to properly build, manage and scale a reliable technology infrastructure. Turning over their technology needs to other managed service providers in the past left them with disappointing results, slow response times and high costs. Ready to find a long-term partner that would meet their needs, the owner discovered ProviDyn.

“We were impressed with the time ProviDyn invested in understanding our business,” said Michael Bell, Owner of the two SERVPRO® franchises. “It was only after a thoughtful evaluation of our technology needs that they recommended private cloud services. Ultimately, the decision to go with ProviDyn’s private cloud eliminated a large upfront investment in equipment and personnel and brought us the benefits of an enterprise class data center at a fraction of the cost.”

“Small and medium-sized businesses have the most to gain from utilizing a private cloud,” said Hamish Davidson, President of ProviDyn. “By taking advantage of a fully managed, hosted and supported cloud solution, these SERVPRO® franchise locations are able to cost effectively focus on running the business, rather than day-to-day management and long term scaling of technology. Because their business must run around the clock, all year long, utilizing the cloud ensures they will always be up and running, in any situation.”

With private cloud services from ProviDyn, companies benefit from:

Remote Access - Access files and data from anywhere, anytime

Hosting of Critical Business Applications - ProviDyn manages and supports all business applications, automatically keeping them up-to-date and running at peak performance

Security – Proper encryption and expert firewall management provides deep layer security for a company’s critical information and systems.

Cost Savings - Eliminates the need to make a large investment in equipment, along with hiring personnel for technology management and support

Scalability – Enterprise class systems priced to fit client needs and the flexibility to quickly and easily expand as the business grows.

Backup and Restoration – Replication and backup of data and systems to protect critical data and allow for rapid restore in response to a critical event
