We fondly remember a client, who sadly is no longer with us, who used to say, “it’s not a cloud to me, its the fog” which we truly understand can be a confusing subject.

Cloud computing can mean many things, from hosting a virtual machine online, hosting your files online using a service such as Onedrive, Dropbox, Google Docs etc, the benefit to cloud computing is that your files go with you from device to device, meaning you can work from literally anywhere and should you have a problem with a system then its possible to just use another computer, iPad etc.

We offer many cloud solutions, such as Microsoft 365, Onedrive, SharePoint, Teams for your company staff or just as an individual business, please contact us for more information


Cloud computing is a method of delivering computer services, including storage, processing power, and software, over the internet. This allows users to access these services from anywhere, as long as they have an internet connection.

One of the main benefits of cloud computing is that it allows for flexibility and scalability. This means that users can easily adjust the amount of resources they need, such as storage or processing power, to fit the changing needs of their business or organization. Additionally, cloud computing can be less expensive than maintaining traditional, in-house IT infrastructure.

Cloud computing services can be divided into three main categories: Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS), and Software as a Service (SaaS).

IaaS, such as Amazon Web Services or Microsoft Azure, provides users with access to virtualized computing resources, including servers, storage, and networking. This allows users to run their own software and operating systems on the cloud.

PaaS, such as Google App Engine or Heroku, provides users with a platform for developing, running, and managing applications. This can include things like databases, middleware, and development tools.

SaaS, such as Salesforce or Microsoft Office 365, provides users with access to software applications that are hosted on the cloud. This can include things like email, customer relationship management, or accounting software.

Another important aspect of cloud computing is security. While the cloud provider is responsible for the security of the infrastructure, customers are responsible for the security of their data and applications. To ensure the security of their data, customers should use best practices like encryption and multi-factor authentication, and regularly review and monitor their security settings.

Overall, cloud computing can provide many benefits to businesses and organizations, including flexibility, scalability, and cost savings. However, it is important to carefully consider the security and compliance requirements of your organization before moving to the cloud.

Will did an excellent job on my computer, after my hard drive had failed. He also was very knowledgeable and informative on various other aspects such as security, computer viruses, and backup services, and I would highly recommend CTA Systems to anyone who has a computer problem in all areas of the north-west.
