The cloud can be a powerful tool. Already, many organizations are building their business process around the capabilities of their technology platform. As always, any push towards a new infrastructure will require planning, and a good use-case analysis. In the case of cloud computing, running a cloud readiness assessment can save quite a few headaches in the future. Basically, you’ll be able to better understand your current capabilities and what the optimal type of infrastructure would be. Ultimately, this helps align your IT capabilities directly with the goals of your organization.
Working hand in hand with you and your business, Amazing Ideas Cloud Computing will assess your needs and advise you on the correct path and methodology to take you into the world of cloud.
Affordable, scalable, adaptable — the future of collaboration is in the Cloud, with Amazing Ideas Cloud Computing opening up a world of cloud collaboration with the power to boost productivity, cut overheads, and bring people together from almost any place in the world at any time.
Collaboration software lets a business share ideas and information among people and across an organization. In an age when contractors and teleworkers are the norm for small businesses, it's easy to see why collaboration software can help connect people and information when it's needed most.
Collaboration software enables communication, but there are many other benefits to consider: Improved project management, better workflow, better management of invoicing and knowing that employees and partners have immediate access to critical business information and documents when they need it
Low risk – high return
Are you doing everything you can to protect your information? While local backup and recovery software offers critical protection against a mistakenly deleted file or from a server or workstation crash, it can’t protect against fire, flood or theft. To survive those onslaughts means investing in a redundant offsite strategy in addition to local backup.
Use the Cloud Backup service to protect your data and clouds. Cloud Backup lets you move your backups into the cloud and automate them, as well as backing up your Windows Servers and the workloads running on them. Protect files, SQL Server databases, and Hyper-V virtual machines in the cloud.
These off-site backups are stored away from your datacenter and are protected by reliable storage, so you can avoid the hassles of on-site backup media and moving backups off-site.
Most of computing is happening in the cloud. But with most vendors you are left on your own after you spin up your first server. They offer little assistance or charge an exorbitant fee for support.
We're different. We know that it takes more than just raw infrastructure to get the most out of a cloud—it takes expertise.
Use Virtual Machines to provision on-demand, scalable compute infrastructure when you need flexible resources. Create VMs that run Windows, Linux, and enterprise applications. Or, capture your own images to create custom VMs.
Websites that generate significant revenue can't afford even a few minutes of downtime or slow page loads. Every time a user experiences delay or issues, it's a lost opportunity with long-term impact.
When traffic explodes, your site won't go down—or even slow down.
Cloud Hosting enables you to build, deploy and scale enterprise-grade web Apps in seconds. Focus on your application code, and let Cloud Hosting take care of the infrastructure to scale and securely run it for you.
While Cloud Storage sounds like it has something to do with weather fronts and storm systems, it really refers to saving data to an off-site storage system maintained by a third party. Instead of storing information to your computer's hard drive or other local storage device, you save it to a remote database.
On the surface, cloud storage has several advantages over traditional data storage. For example, if you store your data on a cloud storage system, you'll be able to get to that data from any location that has Internet access. You wouldn't need to carry around a physical storage device or use the same computer to save and retrieve your information. With the right storage system, you could even allow other people to access the data, turning a personal project into a collaborative effort.
Cloud Storage providers automatically replicate your data to help guard against unexpected hardware failures and make sure it's available when you need it, they keep up to 3 copies of your information.
Also referred to as Database-as-a-Service (DBaaS), cloud databases can use cloud computing to achieve optimized scaling, high availability, multi-tenancy and effective resource allocation.
Cloud databases can offer significant advantages over their traditional counterparts, including increased accessibility, automatic failover and fast automated recovery from failures, automated on-the-go scaling, minimal investment and maintenance of in-house hardware, and potentially better performance.
VoIP, also known as Voice of Internet Protocol, is a term that all industries that use telecommunications at any level are going to be hearing more and more in the near future. Why? Because VoIP technology is quickly replacing the standard, and is pushing old fashioned telephony systems into extinction. With its robust feature set, significant cost savings, and business continuity solutions, VoIP is right for any business. Here is some simple math ...
One of the strongest abilities of VoIP, besides providing cost savings and features, is that it eliminates costly time-consuming processes of running your company. Imagine not having to be in your office to check your voicemails. You could be anywhere listening to messages from any computer or most cell phones. How about having incoming calls being handled immediately by an automated attendant or an interactive voice recording to professionally greet and direct your customers or clients in appropriate direction. Most importantly, with our business continuity solutions and disaster recovery plans, you will never have to worry about losing a valuable call due to natural disaster or technological problems.
The ability to seamlessly integrate multiple offices, have one low cost bill for all offices, and plug in any place where there is high-speed internet means that your ability to move, make adjustments, or simply work from home will never be an issue ever again. Unlike costly land lines our hosted VoIP solutions offer you the versatility you need during a constantly changing and difficult market. Technology should only aid your business to success and never restrict you from making decisions that are right for your company due to limited flexibility or costs to move current systems.
Overall, the choice to move to VoIP is an clear decision. Fortunately, because we are an IT-based business, we know technology trends and will always keep you running at the highest efficiency level on VoIP and IT related systems so you never have to experience the feeling of falling behind the competition.
