Cloud Services

Cloud / Hosted Solutions

“Cloud-based” is not just a trendy tech term these days.  It is a revolutionary way for businesses to host their websites and email without the need for a host server, which is subject to power outages, natural disasters and server crashes/server down-time.

Rent-A-Nerd offers these main choices for cloud-based hosting, each of which will be specially tailored to your needs.


• Office 365:  There are multiple plans available to fit different company sizes and needs.   Features and benefits include the following: a familiar Microsoft Office experience, business class email, instant message and video conferencing, document sharing.  and mobile MS apps on Windows phones (upgradable to iOS and Android); upgrades may include full and mobile versions of Microsoft Office programs and other features.  Click here for Office 365 business pricing, which includes Microsoft Office; or click here for Office 365 email-only pricing.  These are the plans most businesses need; but if you don’t see one that fits your specific needs, please call us to discuss your many other options.

• Google Apps for Business:  Features and benefits include Google-based email (Gmail), customized domain name,Google Calender, Google Docs (enables multi-person real-time collaboration for documents, spreadsheets, presentations and drawings), archiving and e-Discovery tools, and hundreds of third-party applications, which we will gladly discuss with you.

• Hosted Exchange:  This is an even more reliable option, similar to the other options above, including mobile device capabilities, email security (encryption, anti-virus, anti-spam), and email archiving solutions.  Because email is fundamentally crucial to most business applications, we offer this premium option.  This solution will help your business demonstrate regulatory compliance as well as solve email performance issues–this hosted exchange has zero downtime.

• Cloud Sync:  This is your server in the cloud.  What does this mean to you?  Sharing, editing and restoring lost files from the cloud has never been easier.  With Cloud Sync, you are ensured of professional-grade security (448-bit Blowfish encryption on device and in transit, in other words, your data is really secure); drag-and-drop direct access to your synced folder through a folder in your hard drive; the ability to sync across a range of stationary and mobile devices (Android, Apple, Windows and more); administer all your users from one central, intuitive dashboard and set company-specific usage limits; data restoration from any revision; and cloud-enabled file storage (which means you get the full benefits of cloud storage when you are out of the office).

• Rent-A-Nerd (RAN) Cloud Backup:  The easiest, fastest, and safest way to reliably back up all of your important information.  Never worry about losing critical data again!  Click here for more information about RAN Cloud Backup.
