Veteran Miami Tech Entrepreneur Launches Innovative Cloud Computing Venture

A new venture from a recognized technology visionary promises to get employers and employees alike to fall back in love with information technology (IT). By harnessing the power of cloud computing, Jonathan Lieberman and Miami-based itopia are simplifying the way companies purchase, utilize and maintain the systems and equipment that have become the lifeblood of today's businesses, dramatically reducing the costs and complexity associated with traditional office IT infrastructures.

With itopia's "desktop as a service" (DaaS) offering -- the itopia Cloud Desktop solution -- companies will no longer have to spend countless hours and dollars keeping their desktop computers and servers up and running, installing software upgrades and security patches and backing-up data because itopia does it for them, seamlessly and all at once, across the entire enterprise. Costly servers and PCs are replaced by inexpensive thin clients and all software, computing power and data storage resides in a secure and private cloud infrastructure housed in itopia's state-of-the-art data centers. With the itopia platform, users can access their "real work computers" from any device, anytime, anywhere, and a lost or stolen laptop no longer means lost or stolen data. Enabling workshifting and mobile workforces has never been easier.

"The itopia Cloud Desktop solution is a true game-changer," said itopia Founder, President and CEO Lieberman. "Companies will be blown away by the lower overhead costs and increased workforce productivity. Employees will love the flexibility and mobility, and our MSP partners can deliver a high-performance user experience with greater efficiency. By making IT easy and hassle-free, we're giving everyone in the organization -- from the C suite to the IT team to the workforce -- a reason to fall in love with IT again."

In keeping with the company's commitment to making IT easy, itopia Cloud Desktop feature sets are matched to the types of functional roles within a business: Customer Service, Sales/Marketing, Finance/Operations, IT/Executive. Companies simply select the type and number of users in their organization and itopia handles everything else, including all licenses.

With more than 20 years of executive leadership, Lieberman most recently co-founded IPFone, a pioneer in the "communications as a service" (CaaS) business model and one of the nation's leading cloud-based telecommunications providers. For itopia, he has assembled an impressive roster of highly-respected investors and raised an initial investment round in excess of seven figures.
