There is little doubt ‘Cloud’ is the buzz word everyone is talking about when positioning on-line or hosted services and technologies. But it is not always clear what benefits Cloud solutions offer, or in many cases what they provide. At Shift F7 we have identified what we believe are the key areas where Cloud based solutions can benefit our clients and address many of the common business issues they share.
Within the Shift F7 Group is a specialist Managed Service Company, Datashare Solutions, who deliver the following services from their own ISO27001 Datacentre:
DR & Remote Back Up
End Point Backup & Recovery
Hosted Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI)
This set of services is aimed at providing flexible, cost effective solutions that enable businesses to address many of today’s IT issues and challenges. These services can be mixed and matched to complement the existing IT infrastructure, or where applicable replace the traditional On-Premise solutions entirely.
The Shift F7 Group Cloud Platform brings enterprise resilience, backup, infrastructure scaling and DR at a fraction of the cost and with far greater simplicity and efficiency than ever before. Indeed for the small to medium sized business this can bring otherwise prohibitively expensive technologies and services in to the IT strategy. Long term, Cloud solutions will allow the IT department to offer far greater value to the business with improved response and agility, greater predictability and mobility, satisfying the demands of business continuity that are expected of an IT department today.
