Vancouver, BC (Vocus) July 17, 2009
What: CloudBench Applications has issued a new white paper to outline how local governments can use cloud computing for emergency preparedness and improve data protection and recovery.
Where: White paper can be downloaded at http://www.basicgov.com/docs/White-Papers-Cloud-Computing-Emergency-Preparedness-for-Local-Government-2009.pdf
Why: Many well-prepared organizations using on-premise software are left with no way to recover lost data and restore service after unforeseen disasters. Users of web-based services have both their data and server availability protected in the event of a natural disaster.
CloudBench Applications, Inc. (TSX VENTURE: CBH) develops, sells and supports BasicGov, an affordable web-based software used by cities and local governments to streamline their permits and inspections, code enforcement and planning processes. BasicGov is a reliable, secure solution delivered for an affordable price and the only web-based software for local governments built on Force.com, the cloud computing platform from SalesForce.com used by more than 55,000 organizations worldwide. BasicGov software requires only an Internet connection and a browser. Users pay a monthly subscription fee of $119 per module and no capital investment is required. http://www.basicgov.com
