Like VMWare, Citrix is set to benefit from the move to cloud computing which really has only just got going. Small business will outsource all IT and maintain their data on the cloud, giving low costs and access anywhere from any device. They also have a solid relationship with Microsoft.

I just do not think I could trust the cloud with my vital business data. There’s just too much that you can’t control, and that creates additional risk.
While there is lots of risk in any small business, as the owner I would get plenty of control. For example, I could reduce risk by storing copies of my date off-site, with nightly updates. I could do this without the rigmarole of the cloud.
In addition, that means I would have no problem getting to sleep at night, and, that’s got to rank pretty high on the list of reasons for owning any small business.
