Thanks to advancements in technology and super-fast broadband becoming a standard offering many companies are moving away from server based networks and opting instead for cloud based solutions.
This is ideal if you are a small business leveraging modern technologies or if your staff operate independently without a central office location.
We can design and implement fully cloud based computer networks that remove the need for any centralised computer storage and instead leverage the latest online technologies.
Cloud Data Storage
We recommend using and combination of Livedrive and Dropbox to store and manage your data. These services offer centralised, cloud based data storage which can then be automatically synchronised between all of your computers regardless of where they are located.
Both of these services allow unlimited revision history so that your data is safeguarded against unwanted changes and can be rolled back to a previous version as required.
Restricting Data Access
Dropbox and Livedrive both come with a standard version as well as a professional version. The later allows for complete control over data access for your staff. This means that you can restrict access to confidential data and regardless of where your staff are accessing the data.
Cloud based data storage such as Dropbox should not be considered as a backup, but rather as a data-syncing tool. As such, regular backups are still important as they will help to safeguard your data against destructive viruses such as cryptolocker – whilst these viruses may not fully destroy your Dropbox data, they can make the recovery process very complex and time-consuming. For that reason, backups are still critical to ensuring data safety and fast recovery times.
Livedrive provides the ability to run automated backups on all of your devices, uploading local data from documents, pictures and user desktops in real time, as it changes.
In addition to this cloud storage we can also recommend implementing local USB backups to safeguard all of your data – both local and cloud-based.
Cloud Based Email
We recommend Microsoft Office 365 for email delivery and management. Backed by a service level agreement from Microsoft, Office 365 offers to same enterprise email solutions used globally by the largest of businesses, at a price point affordable to even the smallest businesses.
