There are many concerns that the CIOs of today have when considering a cloud services provider. They inspect various aspects such as the agility to address ever-changing business requirements, infrastructure, server downtimes, network connectivity and maintenance, security measures against hacking, spam, viruses, data theft, corporate espionage and intellectual property, comprehensive service level agreements (SLAs), Regulatory Compliances, Security Audits, Uptimes and Disaster Recovery plans.

For a company to position itself as a cloud services vertical it needs to take care of all these aspects. Established in 2007, CtrlS is a cloud services company that offers cost-effective solutions to SMEs and large-sized enterprises, with no compromise on safety, reliability, flexibility and infrastructure.
