In the simplest terms, cloud computing means storing and accessing data and programs over the internet instead of from your local network server.
Cloud computing is now evolving like never before, with businesses of all shapes and sizes adapting to this new technology. One of the reasons for the increase in popularity is the pay as you go subscription model and the flexibility of services. Furthermore, doing away with the need for dedicated hardware reduces the capital investment required in a traditional server setup.
For running your business’ critical services (such as email) in the cloud we recommend Microsoft’s Office 365 cloud services for their reliability, security and competitive pricing. As Microsoft certified specialists we have the technical expertise needed to assess whether cloud computing would benefit your business.
Office 365 takes Microsoft’s suite of applications including their Exchange email system, Lync instant messaging system and SharePoint storage system, to the cloud and is available for a monthly subscription. Its competitive pricing and feature rich functionality means it is a viable alternative to a new on-site server. At David Allen IT Solutions we specialise in the setup of Office 365 services and the smooth, secure migration of your data into the cloud.
We have our own, purpose built, secure data centre that provides cloud services to businesses. To learn more about our data centre and the benefits it would bring to your business, click here.
