BOSTON – Dec. 14, 2015 – Continuum®, the industry's only channel-exclusive provider of fully integrated managed IT services solutions, released the eBook, “Explaining the Cloud to Your Clients,” detailing how MSPs can explain various topics surrounding the cloud, including 1) introducing cloud computing and security, 2) the origin of the cloud, 3) the cloud today – as a utility, as well as 4) answering clients’ questions.

“The cloud has brought a tremendous shift to the IT industry – going from hardware to a service-based platform model, and MSPs and their clients have many questions,” said Jeanne Hopkins, Senior Vice President & CMO at Continuum. “We hope that this eBook delivers some answers in order to help MSPs move their clients to the cloud for operational efficiency and cost-effectiveness.”

MSPs are well aware of how the cloud works and all the advantages it provides for both their businesses and their clients’ businesses. Most understand cloud computing, processing power and third-party data centers. This eBook goes further, outlining how MSPs can explain many details on the cloud to clients in a way that is digestible and relevant. The eBook also helps MSPs to answer questions about security in the cloud, as well as the difference between a private and public deployment.
