Startup Incubator

  The Cloud Simplified Start Up Incubator

Previously start-up businesses would need to reserve a significant amount of capital to invest in appropriate IT Infrastructure to support their business needs – both current and future. With the advent of cloud computing these costs have been dramatically reduced. Due to the scalability and pay-as-you-go payment model cloud services offer start-ups the ability to pay for the cloud services consumed, scaling up and down with demand.

With The Cloud Simplified ’s Start Up Incubator we go one better by making cloud computing resources better than affordable, we make them free for 12 months to Start Up Businesses in Northern Ireland. So, if you are a new business start-up and you are based in Northern Ireland we will provide you with a host of cloud services, including website and DNS hosting, storage and Backups, for free for your first 12 months in business.

Sound too good to be true? As a business you will understand if we offered our services for free to everyone we would be sure to go out of business. Therefore there are only a select number of Incubator Packages made available annually. So, if you want to get a year of free cloud services you need to act fast and sign up today.
