SAN DIEGO, May 12, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Online video conferencing innovator Nefsis® reported today on the emerging difference between video conferencing infrastructure solutions and cloud-based online services. The former typically requires a major capital expense, while Nefsis cloud computing offers a free trial and month-to-month service, plus virtually unlimited scalability for any customer.
"Exploding demand for video conferencing in business highlights the benefits of cloud computing. It's much less expensive and going month-to-month reduces financial risk," said Steven Peltier, Nefsis Chief Executive Officer. "There are many other benefits too, but reducing financial risk is especially important for small and mid-sized businesses that haven't tried video conferencing yet," he added.
Just like CRM, storage, and backup, video conferencing is yet another information technology product category being revolutionized by cloud computing. Nefsis offers secure, multipoint HD video conferencing for desktops and conference rooms, with built-in advanced collaboration tools for business online meetings.
For customers that require similar capability, the alternative to cloud computing is on-premise, video conferencing infrastructure such as video routers, multichannel units (MCUs), desktop gateway and collaboration servers. This class of infrastructure hardware is expensive, complex, and typically requires substantial network changes and maintenance agreements.
"As Skype, webcams, and video savvy users become more prevalent, cloud-computing offers IT staff a business-grade, secure video conferencing alternative without the financial risk associated with previous generations of infrastructure equipment," added Mr. Peltier.
Headquartered in San Diego, California, Nefsis is a technology specialist in video conferencing software and cloud computing online services. The Company's global cloud provides multipoint HD video and advanced collaboration tools to business, government and educational customers in more than 45 countries worldwide.
