- Cloud services
The cloud has become something of a phenomenon in recent years. Advancements in connectivity have meant that cloud services can really offer a viable alternative to traditional offline/on-site services. The cloud offers compelling benefits that could really transform the way your business works. One example are hosted desktops. These enable your staff to work from anywhere with an internet connection and they can pick up right where they left off. Another popular use of the cloud is for online storage. Services like Microsoft OneDrive or Google Drive offer users with high capacity online storage that can be access from any computer or mobile device. With online storage, your data is kept secure and is backed up to ensure you don’t lose important information. Our experience in working with cloud services means we can work with you to migrate your business onto the cloud to help you save on costs and provide your business with improved resilience and redundancy.

- On-site server
Businesses that want complete control of their data and networking may opt to have an onsite server installed. Being on-site means you have complete physical control over your systems without having to rely on a third party. This data control may be of particular importance for certain sectors such as legal or medical firms, where they may be regulated and must hold client data securely on-premises. Other popular uses of a server is for hosting shared applications, such as Sage accounting software. By design, servers are made to operate 24/7 and come with built in resilience features such as redundant storage and backup power supplies. By centralising your storage and applications, you minimise the risk of downtime wreaking havoc to your operation. We have deployed servers to host networked storage, and more complicated mixed-use servers that host applications, act as a proxy server, and provide networked antivirus protection. Find out more.
