“Cloud” computing is all the rage in the IT industry, and now it’s capability to share PC and server power across networks is being used as the newest way for children of all ages to make sure their gift requests are delivered directly to Santa despite the Christmas rush.

Can a  “Miracle on the Cloud” move be too far behind?

Raleigh-based KnowledgeTree, which provides document management through software-as-a-service technology, is offering letter writers a web-based means of getting those last-second priority lists to the North Pole.

And charity will benefit from any of the Santa correspondents who chose the web over standard postage. KnowledgeTree says it will donate $1 for every letter uploaded through its service to the Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina.

Letters can be uploaded here.

KnowledgeTree, which also unveiled a festive new logo for the Santa campaign,  focuses on document management, including collaboration, workflow, alerts, version control and tracking of transactions. And the company believes Santa and his staff can benefit from their process.

To promote the service, KnowledgeTree Chief Executive Officer Daniel Chalef interviewed Santa from the North Pole – via the Internet communications service Skype.

“We’ve taken the North Pole into the cloud, and I couldn’t be happier,” Santa said. “This job is hard and I’m not getting any younger, you know?”
