Eclipse Internet exec says cloud computing is the future
The boss of Eclipse Internet has become the latest broadband industry source to laud the benefits of cloud computing.

Clodagh Murphy declared the technology to be "the future", although she acknowledged there is currently a lack of understanding of the matter from small businesses.

Aspects of the cloud such as hosted exchanges and emails can help firms to slash their outgoings, Ms Murphy claimed, declaring services such as these to be "cost effective".

She added flexibility is another of the many benefits offered by the cloud, explaining: "You can manage your cost base every single month. It's rentable on a monthly basis."

Her comments come after a similar recommendation from Andrew McGrath, the commercial director at cable broadband provider Virgin Media Business.

Mr McGrath described transferring services to cloud computing as a "really exciting proposition" and could not see interest in the service dying down in the near future.

However, he cautioned that use of the technology requires a "huge amount of bandwidth" due to the constant uploading and downloading of data.
