Managed IT Solutions
The focus of Managed IT Services is to provide a catalogue of IT services for a flat monthly fee, which is determined by the number of devices at your organization. It changes the fundamental basis of the relationship over a hourly billing arrangement because, rather than just paying for time, you are paying a fee for a service regardless of the time required to provide it—removing the risk of large, unexpected IT bills.

Business continuity planning is planning for an unforeseeable force that will have a significant negative impact on your business. Disasters range from the extreme and rare complete and total loss to the much more common power outage, or Internet Service Providers (ISP) having a prolonged outage. All of these situations can trigger your business continuity plan to have everything from mobile offices, power generators, technology, and satellite internet access to provide your business the support it needs to continue conducting business without missing a step.
Scalable. Flexible. Secure.
A loss of Internet and network connectivity can be detrimental to your business operations. These outages equate to customer dissatisfaction, loss in employee productivity, loss in revenue, and most importantly, disruption or cancellation of service. As a result, businesses are seeking technology that provides redundant Internet connectivity for both on-premise and cloud-based, remote-hosted applications. Merely hosting applications off site doesn’t complete the equation. Providers still need redundancy in their Internet connectivity to access those applications.

Disaster recovery planning is planning for an unforeseeable force that will have a significant negative impact on your business. Disasters range from the extreme and rare complete and total loss to the much more common power outage, or Internet Service Providers having a prolonged outage. All of these situations can trigger your disaster recovery plan to have everything covered from mobile offices, power generators, technology, and satellite internet access to continue providing your business the support it needs to operate seamlessly without missing a step.
The trend of combining business continuity and disaster recovery into a single term has resulted from a growing recognition that both business executives and technology executives need to be collaborating closely instead of developing plans in isolation.
How it Works
When disasters happen, you want to be assured that sensitive information is protected and safe from loss.
Typically disasters can be weather related, but they can also include hardware failure, human error or intrusions via hacking or malware. They affect businesses and organizations of all sizes; roughly 20 percent of businesses will undergo some kind of hardware or infrastructure disaster during their lifespan. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor, 80 percent of companies that undergo a disaster without a proper recovery plan in place fail within a year, and almost half of them don’t even try to re-open. Of businesses that experienced severe data loss, only about 7 percent make it for more than five years.
We’ll help you conduct an impact analysis of your IT resources and infrastructure – prioritizing strategies for recovery of the functions and processes most essential to operations. Together we determine recovery time objectives for IT-dependent resources, keeping your data safe and getting you back online as soon as possible, ensuring your business’ long-term growth.

Consolidate networking, security, management, and analytics across a scalable, cloud-based environment to optimize your business operations.

Cloud computing makes it feasible for users and clients to gain access to data, apps, and various services all in one place over the Internet. Through the Cloud, expensive hardware, such as hard drives and servers, are no longer required for these operations – and enables users to work from anywhere they may be. More than 90% of organizations are now utilizing innovations in Cloud Solutions in public, private, or hybrid cloud hosting.
Public, Private, & Hybrid Cloud Solutions
It’s easiest to compare a Public-facing Cloud environment with the Open Internet. Applications, storage, and network resources are externally managed by a service provider or hosting operator. This solution is highly scalable, and is designed for businesses whose growth is dynamic, and likes to keep costs low through shared resources.
Private Cloud interfaces rely on resources being housed internally at a centralized location matched to meet demand, and is managed by the organization without external restrictions. This solution can provide dedicated redundancy, personalized segmentation of applications and storage, and low capital expense for businesses with predictable and stable growth.
Combining both Public and Private facing Cloud platforms, businesses and organizations can manage an internal private Cloud environment with additional reliance on a separate but integrated Public Cloud as needed. Portions of data and applications can be migrated and shared between Clouds, perhaps with storing sensitive client data on a Private server while interconnecting with internal business applications on the Public-facing Cloud.
