Kansas City Electronic Manufacturer Representative Launches Cloud Technology to "Green" City

KANSAS CITY, MO., November 24, 2010 -- Spectrum Sales, the premier electronic manufacturer's sales and solutions representative firm in the Midwest, recently launched an energy efficient way to green up Kansas City. The new cloud technology, which Spectrum Sales started using, via MDL Technology, LLC, a Kansas City IT company, will increase energy efficiency, server storage and data protection.

Pat Powell, president of Spectrum Sales, said that the company was in need of a partner to help with cloud and IT management so they engaged with MDL Technology, LLC. "To me, the cloud is processing, services and storage out on the Internet. We are using it in place of our former server-based network at Spectrum Sales. Cloud is energy efficient, and now we do not require a server that consumes power. We kept important files and information plus backups on a server and ran our outlook.pst on each of our own computers. This resulted in two problems: server management which required time and expertise, and infrequent backups resulting in catastrophic losses of data when laptops inevitably died," said Mr. Powell.

Mark Dryer, president of MDL Technology, LLC, said, "Due to increased bandwidth and speed, more and more companies are able to take advantage of cloud technology. By utilizing cloud, companies do not burn as much energy, power or money to keep their IT equipment secure and affordable."

Spectrum Sales is the premier electronic manufacturer's sales and solutions representative firm in the Midwest, with offices in Kansas City, St. Louis and Iowa. Whether Spectrum Sales facilitates procurement directly from a manufacturer or through distribution, the team at Spectrum Sales is reliable for excellent technical and support staff

MDL Technology, LLC is a Kansas City IT company that specializes in worry-free computer support by providing solutions for around-the-clock network monitoring, hosting, data recovery, off site backup security and much more. MDL Technology, LLC is dedicated to helping businesses place time back on their side with quick and easy IT solutions
