Business Cloud Services & Solutions

To Cloud or Not to Cloud? What is business cloud anyway?

Cloud in simple term is placing your files or your line of business software on a server in a Data Center and then allowing your users access to the files or software from where ever they are. A good example of Public Cloud Software is Gmail and Google Docs. You place your files on their servers and access your files and emails via your Internet browser.

Private cloud is when you make your own office server accessible from outside the office, or place the server inside a Data Center to be accessible by you or your employees. Many small businesses prefer the private cloud because they have more control over it. In most cases, it is more cost effective to keep the server in your office as opposed to paying a Data Center to host it for you for a monthly recurring fee. This way, even if your Internet access is interrupted at the office, you can still access the  files through your LAN (Local network). Outside users will not have access though.

24X7-network-monitoring

It is safe to say that we all prefer to know in advance when something starts to go wrong before the damage gets too big to handle. Our system monitoring tools are designed to serve as the early warning mechanisms for your computers and network. It’s a small piece of software installed on each computer/server that notifies the system administrator about any potential issues as soon as they start developing. A good example of such issue is your computer’s hard drive that can deteriorate with no warning signs until it’s too late to do anything about it. Our tools monitor the computer hard drive and fire a notification to our Network Operation Center (NOC) staff so they could take the necessary steps in mitigating the risk.

Such powerful tool along with our 24/7 active maintenance services allows us to attend to every little issue and remedy a solution to keep your network up and running at all times.

cloud

Public or Private Cloud? On-premise? Hybrid?

What is cloud anyway? It is placing your files or your line of business software on a server in a Data Center and then allowing your users access to the files or software from wherever they are. A good example of Public Cloud Software is Gmail and Google Docs. You place your files on their servers and access your files and emails via your Internet browser.

Private cloud is when you make your own office server accessible from outside the office, or place the server inside a Data Center to be accessible by you or your employees. Many small businesses prefer the private cloud because they have more control over it. In most cases, it is more cost effective to keep the server in your office as opposed to paying a Data Center. This way, even if your Internet access is interrupted at the office, your on-site users can still access the files through your LAN (Local network).
