Cloud solutions for company resources

When internet connections were slower, most companies stored their software and data on physical servers located in the office. Today, the availability of high-speed internet has made cloud solutions available. Local servers can be replaced by remote servers located and managed anywhere in the world. Employees can then access these resources using secure internet connections.

There are understandable concerns amongst businesses which have always used local servers to share resources. However, cloud solutions and technology have matured and they are very secure. In addition to offering employees more flexibility of location, cloud hosting offers several benefits over local hosting:

  • Improved security
  • Improved reliability
  • Improved performance
  • Lower initial and ongoing costs
  • Reduced on-site infrastructure requirements
  • Elimination of ongoing local server maintenance
  • Enhanced real-time remote system monitoring, maintenance, and support

We can help plan, implement, and support your migration to cloud-based services so that your business can enjoy these ongoing benefits. We can also train your employees how to use your new cloud solutions, such as how to save sensitive company information in the Cloud rather than locally.

Microsoft Office 365

Almost every business makes use of the Microsoft Office productivity suite – Word, Excel, and PowerPoint. Many companies also pair the Exchange server and Outlook client software to manage  email, calendar, and contacts.

Microsoft now offers a cloud version of its popular software suite. Office 365 is a subscription service charged on a per-user basis. Depending upon the particular plan chosen, its benefits include:

  • Access to continually-updated versions of the core Office software
  • Cloud hosted email – no need for local Exchange servers
  • Cloud storage for employees via OneDrive for Business
  • Instant messaging via Skype for Business

Migrating from local Exchange servers to hosted email

Companies wishing to use Office 365 must often migrate from email and calendar hosted on a local Exchange server, to the cloud hosted equivalents in Office 365. Unfortunately, the migration tools provided by Exchange are rather limited. If the migration is attempted by a non-expert, these problems can occur:

  • The process is very manual, slow, and error-prone, with many PowerShell commands required
  • There is a substantial risk of email downtime
  • There is a risk of data loss or corruption

Let the experts at ComplexITy painlessly migrate your business to Office 365.

Every business is unique, so it is our pleasure to offer a free initial consultation to any prospective client who wishes to improve their IT systems. We will explore your specific circumstances and challenges, with a view to proposing the most appropriate solution.
