Cloud Services

A cloud service is any service made available to users on demand via the Internet from a cloud computing provider’s servers. We started implementing and using cloud based services when our business was founded in 2006, back before the term ‘cloud service’ was even coined.

Some of the key benefits of Cloud Services:

  • Competitiveness – pay-as-you-go service and cloud business applications, mean small businesses can access enterprise-class technology
  • Flexibility – ideal for businesses with growing or fluctuating demands.
  • Capital-expenditure free – cut out hardware and software license costs.
  • Disaster recovery – leverage cloud providers scale and resiliency.
  • Collaboration – workflow and file sharing apps allow updates in real time from anywhere.
  • Document control – files stored centrally in versioned storage.
  • Latest software – providers roll out regular software updates.
  • Security – up to date systems delivered from enterprise data centers
  • Work from anywhere with an internet connection.

Some of the main Cloud Services we support are listed on this page.

Microsoft Azure set-up and integration | iTOPS Limited

Microsoft’s cloud computing platform, is a collection of integrated services – analytics, computing, database, mobile, networking, storage, and web – for moving faster, achieving more, and saving money.

As a Microsoft Partner and Cloud Solutions Provider, we setup, integrate, and resell services based on Microsoft Azure. A great example of how we leverage this technology, is in the provision of a server platform to run a line of business application, such as a financial or legal application, in order to avoid replacing and running a physical server within an office environment.

Cloud Backups

We implement a direct online backup solution, using Storegate backup software on office systems, backing up directly over an internet connection to HP managed datacenter storage. As data is stored off site and off network, it is no longer exposed to security issues on the local network. Data can be recovered to any other system.
