Flow-Cal, Inc. has announced the release of the FLOWcloudSM hosting solution.

Flow-Cal’s clients have the option to use the advanced suite of liquid and gas measurement applications without being tasked with maintaining the supporting hardware and infrastructure. With FLOWcloud, users have the power to access Flow-Cal applications on demand through a web interface.

As a SaaS provider, Flow-Cal’s IT staff provides Remote Managed Services (RMS) to support the hosted application. RMS provides system monitoring, administration, reconfiguration, upgrades and updates as well as log file reviews and patch installations. With FLOWcloud, the application is hosted in a secure environment with backups completed daily

“Cloud computing is the future of software delivery,” says Michael Squyres, Flow-Cal’s president and CEO. “Although the traditional licensed approach may be best for some companies who have the existing infrastructure and staff, others prefer the worry-free maintenance that FLOWcloud offers. The low upfront cost and predictable monthly fees help companies streamline their cash flow while also preserving their capital for growth opportunities.”
