Cloud Solutions

The advent of cloud integration has completely changed how forward-thinking companies implement their IT strategy. Many of your systems can probably be moved to the cloud, and it’s one of the best ways to securely back up your servers.

Using the cloud has many advantages. It saves you money by eliminating the need for physical hardware and frees up resources and space that your business can use in other ways. It also ensures you aren’t paying for too much computing power (and that you always have enough power), which can be an issue with physical servers. Another advantage of cloud integration is that it provides server accessibility from work, home, or practically anywhere.

We can find the best configuration of cloud-integrated Microsoft products to advance your business, and help you choose the right cloud datacenter solution to keep your information safe and secure.

Cloud Strategy

We’ll partner with your organization to find the best cloud option for your business. This can include help with migration, backups, cybersecurity, choosing a datacenter, and more.

Microsoft Cloud Services

Microsoft products are designed to work in tandem with the cloud for maximum productivity. Our experience helping companies implement these products together with the cloud means we can configure the right solution for all users through extensive testing and piloting.

Microsoft Azure
We know how to make Microsoft Azure work for your company—how to use it for testing, application management, as a datacenter, and more—so that you can leverage all of its features to your benefit. We’ll also assist with communication and training, making sure all end users are prepared for the migration and ready to use the platform.

Office 365
The cloud-hosted Microsoft Office 365 provides versatility and cloud integration features that can make your business faster, smarter, and more productive. We can show you how to get the most out of Office 365—how to implement the platform, migrate your applications, manage your licenses, optimize identity management, back up systems, train your employees, and move servers to the cloud. Our hands-on approach to implementation places strong emphasis on security and end-user functionality, and we can also provide post-migration support whenever you need it.

If your business needs tools to assist with enterprise resource planning (ERP) or customer relationship management (CRM), Microsoft Dynamics can help. It can be used together with Azure and Office 365 among other Microsoft applications, and our team can implement Dynamics in the cloud while tailoring the application to the needs of your company.

Datacenter Selection

A reliable datacenter is critical for any successful business. We’ll find a datacenter solution that’s the right fit for you based on our conversations and assessment of your IT environment. We can also handle the vendor relationship, and we only work with datacenter partners we know and trust.

Private Cloud
A private cloud is an internal cloud infrastructure that is hosted and maintained by your company via intranet or a hosted datacenter. We can create, implement, and manage a private cloud—and we’ll make sure you’re using your existing server infrastructure optimally. It’s a great option if you have the resources because you aren’t sharing data with other entities, which can have security disadvantages.

Public Cloud
A public cloud is hosted by another company who is responsible for ongoing maintenance and security. Data from your company is stored in an offsite datacenter, which can be useful for testing purposes and for patch, software, and product rollout. Security is still excellent when using a public cloud option, but some companies prefer to host and maintain their own cloud.

Local Cloud
The local cloud option allows you to download and install a virtual server, which gives you the speed you expect from a local network coupled with the versatility of cloud computing. It is an increasingly popular and cost-effective cloud platform.
