IT Management For The Cloud

By admin, May 14, 2011 10:11 pm

Spiceworks version 5.1, which is now in beta, has added IT management capability for the cloud computing environment. Specifically, Spiceworks has added the ability to manage Google Apps for Business and Rackspace Cloud Servers to the new version of its software aimed at small business IT pros. The company bills itself as the "social business network for IT", because its application combines free network management, network monitoring and help desk support with a Facebook-style community of IT professionals through which organizations can collaborate and support management of cloud and on-premise technologies.

Recent company research suggests that IT pros in the small and medium sized business space expect to spend about 26% of their budgets on hosted and cloud services, and 40% plan to purchase, upgrade or renew hosted e-mail services during 2011, making cloud computing an important target market for the company.
