Trying to figure out a cloud-computing strategy for your organization? Get your head out of the clouds and let IBS define the right strategy for you!
What is the cloud?
Ask 100 people, and you'll likely received 100 answers. However, in general, the cloud can be defined as a model for enabling convenient, on-demand network access to a shared pool of configurable computing resources. For ease of implementation and support for our clients, we have assembled "The Innovative Cloud", and offer the following services to our clients.
Innovative Cloud Email
IBS offers several Hosted Exchange offerings, including the "public cloud" Microsoft Office Live 365 Suite, as well as the IBS "private cloud" Innovative Cloud Email (ICE) solution. When should a client look to a hosted solution rather than an on-premise solution? Call us to discuss, and we can help formulate the right strategy for you!
Off-site data backup and recovery
How can a company be sure they can continue to operate after - or even during - a system failure or catastrophic event, such as a hardware crash, system failure, theft, virus, fire, flood, or other disaster? By engaging IBS for a Backup and Recovery Solution (the IBS BRS).
Your organization relies on customer records, key documents, email, financial systems and other essential data to function on a daily - or even hourly - basis. Without access to mission-critical information, business stops. It's not just about keeping your data safe... it's about protecting your most important strategic assets - in order to keep your business running. Remember, you're not backing up your servers - you're backing up your business!
The IBS BRS includes a device that takes a snapshot of your data every 15 minutes and stores it locally. Routine file restorations or recoveries are accomplished from the local copy. Should a server completely fail, the device also allows us to activate it as a virtual server to keep your business up and running while we diagnose and solve the problem with the offline server. In addition, options are available to have data backed up daily and replicated to our off-site DR location in Marlborough MA, a DR site of your choice, or a third-party data center. IBS can work with you to determine the right solution for you!
