Expanding into the cloud


One of the south west’s leading telecoms and IT providers is planning extensive growth through the latest ‘cloud technologies’.

Truro-based Bush Telegraph is taking advantage of the rollout of superfast broadband in Cornwall, by offering SMEs the advantage of applications that were once considered the preserve of the major corporates.

Cloud computing effectively negates the need for expensive computer hardware in the workplace, with all services provided down the internet in the ‘cloud’.

And in a deal with Microsoft’s largest global partner, Bush Telegraph plans to carry out a wide-reaching and targeted campaign, promoting the benefits that cloud solutions can bring.

CEO Chris Royden explained: “Cloud computing allows businesses of any size to access data via the internet instead of keeping it all in a local workstation.

“Our latest partnership is very exciting. Our cloud solutions will give us the ability to make sure that local businesses take real advantage of our upgraded network, by offering them widely-used data and communications applications that will be secure, reliable, scalable and will always be the latest versions at no extra cost.

“In this current economic climate, companies of all sizes are looking for ways to save money, the cloud option is a perfect solution and makes ideal usage of the emerging superfast network.”

To coincide with the launch, Bush is offering a free four-month trial of the Microsoft Exchange or Microsoft Communicator applications. Contact Jon Henney on 01872 245245 to arrange.
