Services and infrastructure when you need them, where you need them.
When you need a service to just be there, but you don’t need to deal with the details or own the infrastructure, cloud services can be the solution you need. Cloud services are like utilities for computer services that need to work, well, all the time but are not a differentiating factor for your business. They can be a very cost effective option when it does not make sense for you to own your own infrastructure.
Cloud services can provide a great deal of flexibility. As with hosted services, you can access them from wherever you decide to. And, by design, you can scale up and down as needed.
Many types of services can be delivered via cloud based solutions. Among the cloud solutions we can help you set up and manage are Fax, Email, Document storage and management via MS Office 365 or Google Workspace, Spam Filtering, and backup.
Let us help you choose the services that make the most sense for you.
MS / Azure
Microsoft’s office productivity suite has become the de facto standard in many offices. Yet, many offices also want the advantages of a cloud based system. And, of course, it’s not just the Office productivity apps that Microsoft offers. There are collaboration tools and a host of add-on applications that MS offers, as well as Azure, to host your own programs and data. And all of this can integrate with Microsoft Active Directory (AD).
If all of this sounds like a lot, it is. It’s a lot of functionality, but it’s also a lot of complexity. We can smooth over the complexity by setting up and managing your Office 365 / Azure accounts so that you have access to all the features and power you need, when and where you need it without the headaches of day to day management.
Google Workspace offers industry leading collaboration and office productivity tools. It doesn’t matter what platforms your staff are using, they can use Google’s products. And you don’t need to worry about your data.
But, getting it set up, and managing it can be a headache. You need to choose the right version and the right add ons. And you need to administer your account to make sure that everything from user access to appropriate rights to data protection is set up and maintained correctly.
We can help you from the initial setup of your account, through the ongoing management of your users, services and data.
AWS – Amazon Web Services
There are as many reasons to use AWS as there are users. Maybe you need to create a prototype system to test, but can’t devote a dedicated server to the project. Perhaps you have a group of people off-site who need access to a shared database. The use cases are endless.
Amazon AWS offers a robust and scalable solution. A solution that offers a lot of choices, and requires the right setup. We can help you make the choices that make the most sense for your situation. And we can manage your subscription, to make sure that you get the most value for your money.
