Cloud Services and Expertise
OverviewNew technologies can be a challenge to implement for companies without resources, relationships and expertise. As a technology partner, we have made investments to help our clients with their cloud needs and be an extension of their IT team.
Below are some of the key cloud services and expertise we offer.
Backup and Disaster Recovery
The cloud offers a lot of potential options for backing up and archiving data. The cloud definitely can fulfill the offsite requirement for storing backup images. However, care needs to be taken to be sure you meet any compliance requirements for storing personal information. It's also important to make sure that access to your offsite data is controlled.
Cloud can also can reduce the need to manage the physical disk and tape media currently used. This can open doors to new recovery options that can be moved between offices without having to move the physical media around. This also reduces the delays in restoring data caused by waiting for media from offsite vendors.
Any company that has done the work to prepare a disaster recovery plan knows that it is a complex process. Adding in cloud based solutions isn't necessarily a quick and easy fix. While you pay only for the cloud storage and compute resources you use, this still leaves all the same planning that is needed with conventional infrastructure.
