At D&H Distributing's New England Technology Show, a CRN VAR Roundtable discusses how SMB customers are feeling about moving to the cloud, in which many say they are being pressured.

Are small and midsized businesses moving to the cloud? Yes, but sometimes they're not going so willingly. That's the word from several solution providers that participated in a CRN VAR roundtable at D&H Distributing's New England Technology Show last week. Solution providers like Computer-EZ and Portsmouth Computer Group say that while there are advantages to using cloud apps and services, smaller businesses are reluctant to let go of their IT operations and data -- but sometimes are forced to because of cloud pressure from larger enterprises and industry partners.
