Hosted and Cloud Services

Hosted solutions can provide all or parts of an organization’s IT infrastructure in a fully managed and hosted environment accessed remotely via a secure internet connections. Rather than purchasing and maintaining the systems and software necessary to run a business on-site, this technology is made available in a “Cloud” of online resources.   This allows companies to remotely store and access their data and supporting systems safely and securely – saving time, space and expense.

Although cloud services originated as storage solutions, they now offer businesses a host of options, such as cloud-based email, servers, applications and desktops.

We work with many different hosted solutions providing email, virus protection, data security, IP telephony, backup solutions, and much more.

We are a Microsoft Cloud Solution Provider, and can assist you with deployment, migration and troubleshooting Azure, Office 365 or Dynamics 365.  We have done hundreds of account migrations with both Google Apps and Office365.

Offerings

Offsite Backup

Offsite backup solutions can be complex systems but we can assist your company with both infrastructure and endpoint backup solutions.  We use a multi layer approach with one solution for end user devices and a separate system which can handle server based applications like email servers, databases, and open file options.

Hosted VoIP

Otherwise known as an Internet phone system, hosted voice solutions require very little capital outlay and generally can cost the same as existing analog phone lines or T1 circuits, but for the monthly fee, you receive the phone service, voicemail, all the bells and whistles, even support, just without the expensive system to buy or the maintenance costs associated with it when something goes wrong.

Desktop-as-a-Service

Desktop as a Service (DaaS) is a cloud service in which the back-end of a virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) is hosted by a cloud service provider.  Hosted VDI solutions remove the complexity of the initial integration and setup, and remove the cost associated with licensing and hardware.  VDI can allow your staff to work securely anywhere, on any device.

Hosted Applications

Many organizations use specialty software that may be custom tailored for their industry.  Application hosting can offer greater flexibility for remote access and reliability, all while reducing the up front costs associated with the hardware acquisition and maintenance.

Hosted Databases

With the need for 24/7 access to critical financial and customer data, a hosted database solution can provide secure and reliable access for even the most demanding databases.  Multiple options exist for securing your data in an hosted environment and allowing the flexibility of growth without the hardware acquisition and maintenance costs.

Email and Messaging

While email and messaging has been a cloud service for many people since it’s evolution, previously the complex communication needs of today’s economy have moved email and messaging systems into the mission critical category for most businesses.  Before the evolution of Office 365, only large corporations were able to leverage the power of Microsoft Exchange and it’s tight integration with Microsoft Outlook

File Sharing and Storage

The ability to securely share files such as documents, photos and videos across multiple devices and with multiple people is becoming more common, and critical to businesses.  Various solutions exist to provide storage, accessibility and even synchronization to multiple devices.

Private Cloud

Private cloud is a type of cloud computing that delivers similar advantages to public cloud, including availability and self-service, but through a proprietary architecture. Unlike public clouds, which deliver services to multiple organizations, a private cloud is dedicated to a single organization, and should be considered for some solutions.

Public Cloud

A public cloud is one based on the standard cloud computing model, in which a service provider makes resources, such as applications and storage, available to the general public over the Internet. Public cloud services may be free or offered on a pay-per-usage model. Microsoft, Amazon and Google provide some of the most popular Public Cloud Services
