Cloud environments, are a fantastic way for businesses to manage their business applications on virtual servers, removing the need for costly on-site servers, which need regular maintenance and a controlled environment.

The process of migration

To obtain the benefits of using better technology, we migrate your business over after stages of planning and assessment to ensure minimal disruption to your productivity. As we’ve completed numerous migrations, you have peace of mind that our data will be secure and that you will have as much control as you wish and peace of mind.

Training

Once we understand the critical data and applications being migrated, we work with you to transition them.

Creating a cloud environment

The cloud system itself will be flexible and created for your business, based on your needs and the solutions we have discussed with you. Our expert technical specialists have years of experience in migration and will be able to answer questions every step of the way.

On going support

Once you have migrated to the cloud the data centre teams take care of the environment, with 24/7/365 monitoring and depending our your requirements, we can offer access to authorised users or carry out maintenance on your behalf to allow you to focus on your most important business goals and being productive.

Hybrid cloud solutions

Not sure you want all of your applications based in a cloud environment? We also offer hybrid cloud solutions, whereby some applications  can be migrated to the cloud, whilst others  stay on-site.

This solution works well as both a permanent setup for your business, or as a pathway into a full cloud environment. This again is very flexible and created to maximise the benefits to your working environment.

Is cloud computing right for your business?

Cloud technology is ideal for most businesses, small, medium, large, local and international, due to the fact it’s flexible, reliable and secure.

It’s scalability is definitely a factor in migrating to the cloud for companies who have plans to expand in the future, and removing the servers and maintenance responsibility to a provider saves key members of staff time to concentrate on other factors.
