What’s this ‘cloud’ really all about?
Put simply, the cloud is a metaphor for the internet. The cloud is any internet, media, software or other data services that are accessed over the internet rather than being located right next to you such as in your own internal server, onsite. To access the cloud, all you need is a device (computer, laptop, smart-phone) and an internet connection.
You’re probably already using the cloud
If you search Google, backup your photos online, backup your iPhone or watch movies via Netflix you’re accessing the cloud.
So how can the cloud help your business?
Cloud services have been available to businesses for quite some time now but it’s only recently that the market has matured and infrastructure improved. The time to take advantage of this medium is now.
Servers and desktops
Imagine getting rid of all of your onsite infrastructure such as mail, file and terminal servers and running all of this from your own private cloud. All you’d need onsite is a basic computer or laptop that sits on your desk and an active internet connection. Whether your business is just you, or you have hundreds of staff, we can get you into the cloud with minimal effort.
By hosting your infrastructure in the cloud, you can access your virtual desktop from anywhere, at any time. If you have a terminal server, you’d already be familiar with remote desktop — this is the same, only better.
Better still, all of our hosted infrastructure solutions are backed by a 99.99999% uptime guarantee! That’s the best there is!
Imagine getting rid of SPAM and email viruses, having unlimited email backup, being able to access your emails from any device and having a uptime guarantee that would make the New York Stock Exchange proud. We can make that happen.
Once we transfer your mail hosting to one of the big providers (Microsoft Office 365 or Google via their Google Apps suite) you won’t need to worry about keeping your mail server up to date — it’s all taken care of.
Phone system (VoIP)
Is your tired old phone system costing you way too much every month? We can replace it with a cutting edge business grade cloud based VoIP phone system, and give you access to powerful features and a capped call plan that could potentially save you thousands!
Are you changing backup tapes or hard drives every day and sometimes even forgetting? We can implement a cloud based ‘set and forget’ backup system that will do all the heavy lifting and give you a nice report every day for your peace of mind. You’ll never be caught out again!
