CET Announces New Cloud Computing Platform

Cloud Expo Continues to Attract Crowds at Javits Center in New York

Cost Effective Technologies (CET) has launched a new platform for small and medium-sized organizations, to bring the benefits of cloud computing, software as a service (SaaS), virtualization, and managed services to public and private sector organizations. The announcement came from company headquarters in Lincoln, NE, as the Fifth International Cloud Expo was being held in New York.

"Traditional IT delivery and deployment mechanisms have guaranteed that small and mid-sized companies continually have to invest in expensive, complex hardware and software systems. We built a platform that turns the traditional IT business model on its head, making the IT process more affordable, scalable, and flexible," said Hannah Smitterberg, co-founder of CET. "We manage our clients' networks, help them transition to our secure, private cloud computing environment, and deploy affordable SaaS alternatives when and where appropriate."

An alternative to the traditional IT model, CET helps organizations lower their IT costs and gain access to better technology tools for a set monthly fee. Their expertise in deploying secure, private cloud computing environments, software as a service (SaaS), infrastructure as a service, and virtualization technologies is custom-tailored to enhance their clients' business models.

In addition to offering unlimited use of its web-based computing platform, CET provides:
* Secure, anytime/anywhere access to business applications from any Internet location

* An extensive library of both proprietary and open source software applications -- Personal, accessible, and customizable technology support

* Expert-managed IT services for all types of networks during every stage of the IT life cycle

"We started CET with the goal of providing organizations with IT solutions that are best for them," said Smitterberg. "Our technology is simple, smart, and secure. It puts better tools into the hands of our clients, and it can save organizations up to 60 percent of their current IT budget."

Cost Effective Technologies is a subsidiary of Nebraska-based Nelnet, which has been providing technology-driven business process outsourcing solutions for more than 30 years, CET provides private, secure, and affordable web-based computing platforms for small and mid-sized organizations.
