Atlantic.Net Supports Local IT Society!

This week Atlantic.Net donated a high-end computer server to the Central Florida IT Society to help them cope with their growing needs.  CFITS has experienced tremendous growth in its membership base in the last year with almost 400 new member sign-ups!

I spoke with David Spears, Web Development Chair of CFTIS, and he was very excited about the donation.  I feel that this in-kind donation will go a long way in helping our local IT Society.  Atlantic.Net is proud to provide CFITS with the dependable network infrastructure required to support an organization of their size.

CFITS includes professionals from all areas of the central Florida technology field, from web hosting to online Internet marketing firms to Internet security experts and many more.

Atlantic.Net looks forward to further strengthening our alliance with CFITS for the betterment of our local technology community for many years to come. We couldn’t be more honored to help aid their growth and development through donations and sponsorships.

Atlantic.Net on SaaS at CFITS

June 4th 2009 was special for many reasons, one of them being the Central Florida Information Technology Society (CFITS) lunch meeting event at the Cisco facility on Research Parkway.

It was a hot day (Hello Florida in June!) and the drive was long, but catching up with Adnan and William, it seemed like we got there in no time.

Big thanks to CFITS for recognizing the leadership of Atlantic.Net as a strategically and financially sound vendor for SaaS (Software as a Service) hosting deployments and choosing us to do a presentation on ‘Underpinnings of SaaS vendor selection ’ to a sizeable gathering of information technology professionals from a rich mix of local businesses. Apparently, quite a few joined us over the web to listen to the presentation in real-time over Webex.

CFIT Beginning

After a welcome and a light lunch, Cisco presented their new Webex system . Their new system is pretty cool; in fact the presenter did the presentation over the web from the West Coast. The presentation was short, and guess who was delighted? Continue reading
