Virtual computing allows businesses and home office professionals access to remote applications and processes when they need it without the need for traditional computer hardware. Users gain access to powerful computers via the Internet through a router and only one physical computer on-site which would act as a terminal to your virtualized network. For a fee much lower than the cost of physical computers which constantly require maintenance and upgrading, users can boost their computers' capabilities, size, performance, processes and/or software applications whenever they need it. This real-time technology offers professionals of every industry access to the computer power of big corporations. With RetailProfessional& IT Services support and operation team's unique business analysis review software we are able to accurately determine the amount of computer resources needed to effectively implement the virtual environment for our customers business needs.

6. Automated Problem Solving & Troubleshooting
Users can access software applications for a single computer or an entire network because of the ability to select only what you need when you need it. They also can save or back up data and text documents to a virtual server (thus freeing space on individual computers) and reallocate or assign different processes to the virtual environment. This enables computers to operate at optimal speeds.
Virtual computing initially began as a method of borrowing space or storage for computer systems, but it's since grown significantly, offering data and software applications, as well as operating and utility systems. The corporate environment most commonly uses it, where IT system managers run multiple applications on several servers.
RetailProfessional& IT Services has always provided services and support at a level where results speak for themselves earning the trust of our customers. With virtualization technology there are a growing number of providers. After two years of testing and trials it is of no surprise that Microsoft Virtualization Data Centers across the world stand out amongst the competition of major providers. RetailProfessional& IT Services only offers virtualization cloud computing using Microsoft Azure. This exclusive partnership allows RetailProfessional& IT Services Support Technicians and Specialists to work exclusively with Microsoft's cloud computing platform.
Through Microsoft Windows Operating System, Microsoft provides hardware and software storage operations, management, upgrades and monitoring.
Before our specialists start to virtualize your computer environment an inspection is performed and this is a streamlined process all customers will experience and be even more assured as we work with your business preparing and training your staff. We will ensure that your computer meets the system requirements. Every computer system has a limited amount of resources. A reduction in available memory and storage occurs once those resources are used. While the system requirements to download virtual applications are dependent on the provider and the package, we'll provide the minimal requirements for Microsoft Windows and Mac users as an example:
Microsoft's Virtual PC application -- Microsoft Virtual PC 2007 -- requires a 400 MHz Pentium-compatible processor (1.0 GHz or faster) and 20 megabytes of disk space. The virtual application runs on the following Windows operating systems:
· Windows Vista Business
· Windows Vista Enterprise
· Windows Vista Ultimate
· Windows XP Professional
· Windows XP Tablet PC Edition
Other systems, like Windows 98, Windows 2000, or Windows ME can handle virtual computing, but they require more memory to do so.
Mac users can access virtual computing through Virtual PC for Mac Version 7. They'll need a 700 MHz native PowerPC G3, G4 or G5 processor, 3 GB of free hard drive space and 512 MB of RAM. Virtual PC for Mac will run on Mac OS X Version 10.2.8, 10.3, 10.4.1 and later versions.
The pros of cloud computing are obvious and compelling. If your business is selling products or installing hardwood floors, why get involved in the nitty gritty of buying and maintaining a complex computer system? If you run an insurance office, do you really want your sales agents wasting time running anti-virus software, upgrading word-processors, or worrying about hard-drive crashes? Do you really want them cluttering your expensive computers with their personal emails, illegally shared MP3 files, and naughty YouTube videos—when you could leave that responsibility to RetailProfessional& IT Services? Cloud computing allows your business to obtain only services you want with no more expensive computer hardware required. Cutting the upfront capital costs of computers and related hardware technology. You avoid equipment going out of date and other familiar IT problems like ensuring system security and reliability. You can add extra services (or take them away) at a moment's notice as your business needs change. It's really quick and easy to add new applications or services to your business without waiting weeks or months for the new computer (and its software) to arrive. RetailProfessional& IT Services is ready and at your service 24/7 never closing even on holidays. Contact our support team and ask about cloud computing.
Most importantly, our Cloud Computing Service is provided, installed remotely with no on-site service required most times and managed on your company's behalf. If you're using Google Documents, you don't have to worry about buying umpteen licenses for word-processing software or keeping them up-to-date. Nor do you have to worry about viruses that might affect your computer or about backing up the files you create. Google does all that for you. One basic principle of cloud computing is that you no longer need to worry how the service you're buying is provided: with Web-based services, you simply concentrate on whatever your job is and leave the problem of providing dependable computing to our support team here at RetailProfessional& IT Services Inc.
Cloud computing means that instead of all the computer hardware and software you're using sitting on your desktop, or somewhere inside your company's network, it's provided for you as a service by another company and accessed over the Internet, usually in a completely seamless way. Exactly where the hardware and software is located and how it all works doesn't matter to you or your business or home office, the user—it's just somewhere up in the "cloud" that the Internet represents.
