The cloud — which stores information with other companies such as Amazon, Rackspace and Google — frees up vital space on a company’s servers. It also can save money and allows data to be accessed anywhere through the Internet.
“This paradigm shift only happens every 15 or 20 years,” said SADA Systems CEO Tony Safoian. “And we are in a market position to take advantage of this.”
SADA Systems, founded in 2000, jumped into the cloud four years ago. One cloud offering helps businesses migrate e-mail, documents and word processing software to the cloud. Business tied to the storage format now accounts for close to 90 percent of SADA’s business, the company said. SADA has helped shift more than 400 clients to the cloud since 2007.
