Document management specialist Xerox is bringing its cloud services to small businesses

Document management company Xerox is set to offer cloud services to small businesses.

The company, which is building on its ACS acquisition from two years ago, is introducing a range of different services, previously only available to large corporations.

Xerox will be offering a wide range of products through the company’s value-added reseller chain.

The new services comprise an IaaS implementation for mid-range and Intel systems and  a cloud-based disaster recovery and backup service,

The company claims that the IaaS service will meet the demands placed by a heterogeneous mix of operating systems, databases and ERP systems and is quickly provisioned via a  "click-and-pick" process.

Xerox said that the backup and recovery service would enable customers to recover on their servers within 24 hours, all charged on a pay-as-you-use basis with no long-term contract needed.

"Cloud technology is often presented as a complex, ‘big company’ infrastructure solution.  But, in fact, managing IT operations in the ‘cloud’ is just as relevant and affordable for smaller companies and can be even more impactful," said Ken Stephens, senior vice president of cloud services. "Expanding Xerox’s IaaS and backup and recovery services to SMBs is the next step toward offering a full suite of business cloud services that SMBs can access on a ‘pay-as-you-go’ model."
