One very large step for man…

One very large step for man…

It’s often been said that 90%, or more, of technological advancement by humanity has been developed in the last 150 years. That seems to be a pretty bold claim, but if you consider the scale at which we are working now it seems more than just plausible. 150 years ago, electricity was an exciting thing. Now, it is simply a standard component of a dazzling array of things we use on a day to day basis. But lets think on an even grander scale. Have a quick look at this link from the Mars Curiosity rover and come back to me: 360 Panoramic View from Mars Curiosity Welcome back. Now, at this point you may be wondering why I’m talking about Mars and human ingenuity? Let’s take a moment to understand just what an astronomical (pun intended) undertaking that landing an SUV sized rover on another planet is. Mars is far away. REALLY far away. The average distance in orbital paths between Mars and Earth is around 78,341,212 Km. The rub there is that that distance changes depending on where both planets are in there orbit. It can be anywhere from 57,600,00 Km to as distant as 400,000,000 Km. The complex math involved with launching an object from Earth at a moving target millions of Km away is astounding. That said, we’ve done it. A few times. This is definitely something we should be proud of. Now let’s frame our modern business in context here. There are some clients that are concerned about how complex an implementation of a new technology or business process can be. As a Toronto based Managed IT Services provider with cloud computing options; we go out of our way to simplify the migration or adoption to make it as painless as possible. Though it may seem like an insurmountable task to move to a cloud solution, it should be a comfortable step forward into the future of business computing. Cloud hosted exchange for mail can actually become less of a headache for business by removing the internal overhead for maintenance. So the next time you feel a bit of nerves in the face of moving to the cloud, just remember: It’s not rocket science. Even though as a species we’re pretty good at that now anyway.
