I first became aware of Cloud 9 at the Sleeter Group's accounting solutions conference a few years ago. I work from home as a solo practitioner. When I decided to hire the services of a part time contractor, it made financial sense for me to have my files hosted and work remotely instead of renting an office space or having her come to my house. Cloud 9 has allowed me to scale my business affordably. Service hold times have been frustrating at times, but they are always able to resolve my issues. If the issues are not pressing, I email support and wait for a response. Overall I am happy with my choice of cloud hosting providers.
