LIME ‘Cloud’ gives more to business customers in the region

Telecoms Company LIME announced that it will be expanding its suite of LIME Cloud services across its 13 markets in the region starting today (November 10).

The LIME Cloud, which is part of its Managed Services solutions, will be upgraded to include hosted voice, desktop video conferencing, hosted e-mail and web hosting, in an effort to ensure that more businesses have access to the range of services available in the ‘Cloud’.

The LIME Cloud provides businesses with options which range from built-in disaster recovery (hosted voice) to infrastructure as a service (servers in the cloud) to significant savings on the expense of capital equipment required for services such as video conferencing

In announcing the expansion of services Managing Director of Products and Services at LIME, Ian Galt said “Global trends are creating opportunities for businesses through cloud solutions and we have packaged the LIME Cloud to help businesses meet the demands of the modern world while controlling and, in some cases eliminating some operational costs. We are leveraging our expertise and our understanding of useful and superior business solutions for our customers’ benefit.”

Emphasising the immediate benefits for customers, Galt said, “we focus on ‘simplicity and scalability’ which means we are able to tailor solutions to match the scale of each business, without the usual complexities.”

    It says that FAST mobile internet will be coming to Dominica … fast that is … not the turtle that we have on Digicel.

    DNO should do a news item on this … it really is big news.

        What did I say? Lime is good right now? No.

        Those Erickson servers will be capable of delivering much faster than EDGE. EDGE is a joke. While it was only BB users it was OK, but now that every schoolchild can send photos of their new shoes to each other (sat next to them in the same room) it has slowed right down.

        LIME have terrible customer support … they need to sort that out.

        Like or Dislike: Thumb up 0 Thumb down 0

    I hear a lot of hyperbole.

    Do they propose to up the mobile internet connection to G3? If so … I love LIME.

    ‘management by an outside third party of an organisation’s services and equipment related to computers, networks and software…’

    I don’t give a rat’s a** what the rest of the world are doing, all I know is that whoever is providing me with this ‘solution’ may very well, one day, hold me and my business to ransom…
