Enstep Technology Solutions Sees Signal That Hardware Is the Future of Cloud Computing

Enstep Technology Solutions is now offering Cisco’s Meraki networking hardware to small and medium-sized businesses seeking to leverage the power of cloud computing. CEO Brett Passmore believes his company is on the right track.


Houston, TX, USA - January 30th, 2014 -- Enstep Technology, is a Houston, Texas-based managed IT service provider. The company views the recent hardware deal between Salesforce and HP as a signal that the future of cloud computing will be focused on hardware and not software. “That deal supports our move to offer Cisco’s Meraki network hardware to our customers,” explains Brett Passmore, Enstep Technology’s CEO and Senior Technology and Business Process Consultant.

Cloud computing has become a popular tool for businesses because it provides an easy way to increase networking capacity or add capabilities quickly without investing in new hardware. Using virtual servers, businesses manage their network in real time over the Internet relying on cloud service providers and proprietary software.

Enstep Technology is now installing and providing support for Cisco’s Meraki networking hardware. Meraki offers powerful and intuitive centralized management through the cloud. Eliminating the cost and complexity of traditional on-site wireless controllers, it seamlessly manages company-wide WiFi deployments and distributed multi-site networks with zero-touch access point provisioning, network-wide control, and seamless firmware updates and more. Thanks to its intuitive browser interface, the system can be set up in minutes — not days or weeks — without training or dedicated staff.

Only recently has the focus on cloud software started switching to cloud hardware. In the deal announced on November 18th, HP has agreed to install dedicated servers and networking hardware in Salesforce’s facilities. “The reality is, this is a whole new vision of cloud computing,” says Salesforce’s co-founder and CEO Marc Benioff.

When businesses take control of their cloud, they enjoy data security and peace of mind. This development means that those who were once afraid of using the cloud for security reasons can now enjoy the power, flexibility, and affordability that cloud computing offers.
