The decision to move to a cloud-based service depends on many factors. We have successfully migrated numerous companies to our managed IT service infrastructure, each company is unique with different ideas and expectations on what benefits can be gained by migrating to a cloud service. For some companies who have limited IT knowledge, moving to a hosted service makes perfect sense as it allows them to focus on their business. As companies grow, the reliance on IT systems becomes even more critical which is why cloud-based services become a viable option. The scalability and performance of a quality cloud-based provider reduces the headache and capex on IT infrastructure, whether it be adding or upgrading servers, moving to a better CRM software platform or simply providing better support for staff to perform there day to day tasks.
Moving to managed IT service allows greater flexibility as systems can be quickly scaled to meet increasing demands, whether it be increase storage, CPU power or communication bandwidth to accommodate increasing traffic and data transfers. The effort and expertise to manage this on-premise can be a challenge if the IT knowledge in your company is limited. If you weigh up the costs of employing an IT person to manage your infrastructure along with associated hardware and software costs, the benefits of a cloud-based solution can be a more cost-effective option.

The issue of disaster recovery becomes apparent only at the time of the actual disaster, up until then it’s usually something that is overlooked and given little thought. Here are a few basic reminders of how you might be impacted should a disaster occur:
If your server crashed, how long would it take to be operational again and how long will your staff be unproductive?
How good are your current backups, do you store your backups offsite in case the office caught fire was flooded or broken into?
What would happen if today, your laptop was lost, stolen or failed to boot up?
Do you have critical data located in various systems throughout your company?
How accessible is your physical computer equipment to unauthorised users?
What cost do you put on your data in case it was compromised or lost?
If you are comfortable in your IT infrastructure knowing all the above is covered, you are probably in the minority of most small to medium businesses. Protecting your data could be as simple as using a cloud backup service, we have software and systems in place to back up your critical data whether it be a pc’s, laptop or server.
