Small Business MAPS member - Does Microsoft offer Cloud storage to us? I want to try before I recommend. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Bla, bla, bla ... cloud!  So as a MAPS member (and a six digit MCP ID, its been a long time), my very small software development group is evaluating off-site Cloud storage services.

    Naturally, I checked into my MAPS member benefits. Can't find a thing. So, I am looking at non-Microsoft services such as Drop Box and others.

    Does Microsoft offer us MAPS members anything we can consider. Something like 3, 4, or 8 GB storage? Frankly, I would be concerned with recommending anything to a valued customer until I try it myself.

    Bottom Line: What does Cloud have for me, a small MAPS business and my small business customers for basic disk storage?

  • Thanks, just sent off an e-mail. Will let you know what I hear.

    Stick around, I am more on the Access/SQL Server/Excel Object Model programming side.

    Might want to ask you about some networking.

    http://gdgt.com/western-digital/my-book/live/duo/  For example: Was thining about the 6GB Western Digital Duo (Disk Mirroring) to hook up to the router. Then setting this up to some Cloud service for off-site backup. That is about the cost range for company or small divisions with three to twenty database users. It is small time for what many consider an Enterprise. But, there is so much innovation in small business. If you have anything about this kind of setup, let me know. I will gladly post again so you get credit for an answer.
