Why you shouldn’t be afraid of the Cloud

There is no doubt that making the move to the Cloud can be scary, especially when major data breaches are the topic of the evening news more often than not nowadays, but when done right; it’s a simple transition. With an increasingly data driven world, the Cloud allows your business to connect anywhere in the world on virtually any device with virtual desktops. Cloud technology makes room for increased productivity, uptime, security and availability by using dependable shared resources and allows for quick-growth through flexibility and money-saving efficiencies. What about that sounds scary?

Get to know Tony Malorni

Born, raised, and current resident of Cuyahoga falls, Ohio, Tony/T/Tones  is about as Ohio as it gets. When he is not out hiking, or biking in Cuyahoga Valley National Park, or spending time with his 2 grandchildren, you can find him listening to music or buried in a good book, accompanied by his favorite meal, steak with mushrooms. He loves roller coasters, but he’s no adrenaline junkie. Tony doesn’t care for bungee jumping and would much rather be in the mountains. When Tony is not dreaming of vacationing in Italy, he is devoting his time outside of work volunteering and helping others. Tony served as President of the Rotary Club in 2014 and volunteered with the Catholic Youth Organization of the Cleveland Diocese in their Athletic program for over 20 years. We are glad that he made his way to ANS to serve as the Director of Sales because of his passion for technology. When asked what he likes most about working in the IT industry, he said, “We get to help people with one of the most productive tools in their business. IT allows companies to be more mobile, nimble and reactive to take care of their customers. We get to be a part of making them successful and grow.” We couldn’t agree more and thrilled he is on our side!
