Welcome to The Cloud
Cloud Computing - or more commonly known simply as The Cloud -
can help you to transform your business by improving service levels, reliability, return on IT investment and security. The Cloud opens opportunities for you to increase the scale of your IT infrastructure within a fraction of the time as opposed to more traditional methods; for considerably less investment and lower IT management overheads, letting you focus on your business and not your IT.
Here at Inettek we have run the vast majority of our business via The Cloud from software maintenance/monitoring to our business accounts...all done via the Cloud; all securely backed up and all available wherever we may be.
Ahead of the Game - Be Lean & Stay Lean
Don’t invest a penny more than you need - but scale instantly when required
In today’s business environment, doing “more with less” has become the new normal. To stay ahead of the game, it is imperative to get the most out of every investment. When it comes to your technology investments, this means cutting costs wherever possible and getting the most value out of the products and services you purchase. Technologies like virtualization and the cloud can help you achieve your business goals more cost-effectively by enabling you to reduce or eliminate up-front costs. These technologies also help free up IT resources, so they can spend more time on areas that add greater value to your business.
Reduce costs and get the most out of your IT investment
Many small and midsize businesses have a dedicated server for each of their business applications. With virtualization included in Windows Server 2012 R2, you can run more applications on a single server, helping you save on hardware costs and power bills.
Virtualization can also help simplify the upgrade process, making it dramatically faster and easier to move the contents of your server to new hardware - and to maximize your existing server(s) as you grow. Also, virtualizing your servers sets you up to benefit from network and storage cost savings.
Virtualization is quickly becoming the “new normal” in IT, and Inettek doesn’t believe you should have to pay more for it. For example, VMware charges £400 for vSphere Essentials, and it lacks key capabilities that help reduce system downtime. Windows Server 2012 R2 offers this functionality built-in, at no extra cost. Why would you pay for VMware for less functionality?
Host your applications in the cloud
Today a lot of organizations are choosing to host their applications - such as SQL Server, SharePoint, and third-party business applications - in the cloud. By moving workloads from on-site servers to Windows Azure, you can avoid the capital expense of purchasing new server hardware, cut IT management costs, and leverage cloud infrastructure to scale up or down as needed.
With Windows Azure, you also get the peace of mind in knowing that your applications and data are getting the same level of protection chosen by Microsoft’s enterprise customers, including many of the world’s largest financial institutions. Windows Azure provides a fully-managed and monitored infrastructure, with data backed up in multiple geographies, along with a range of security measures like patch management, security monitoring, and cryptographic protection of messages.
Get a fast, highly available database that will grow with your business
As small and midsized businesses grow, so do the demands on the databases they use to help run their organizations. Whether for inventory, online sales transactions, or customer management, a slow-performing or unavailable database can cause significant bottlenecks in the way people do their jobs - and it can cause customers to choose to do business elsewhere.
Inettek makes powerful database functionality available to small and midsize organizations with a range of performance enhancements in Microsoft SQL Server 2014 Standard Edition. And with new in-memory technology built-in to SQL Server 2014 Enterprise Edition, businesses are able to perform transactions an average of 10x faster on the same hardware.
SQL Server 2014 also includes built-in capabilities to avoid downtime - helping ensure your database, and your business, is always up and running.
With SQL Server, you also get a proven database you can rely on. With an install base in the millions, SQL Server’s business-class data platform capabilities are the most widely used on the planet.
Know you’re open for business, even if disaster strikes
Forty percent of businesses never reopen when disaster strikes. Whether it’s flood, fire, or break-in, customers running Windows Server 2012 R2 get the peace of mind that they can recover quickly and cut data loss with built-in technology that replicates their server every five minutes.
In the past, traditional disaster recovery solutions could cost as much or more than the entire annual IT budget of a typical SMB - which left small and midsize businesses stranded. Now this functionality is built-in to Windows Server 2012 R2, providing your organization a powerful yet affordable option.
With Windows Azure, you also have the option to keep your data backed up in the cloud. With Windows Azure, you get a scalable backup solution that you pay for with a low monthly fee, so there is no capital expense.
For organizations running SQL Server databases, SQL Server Backup to Microsoft Azure offers a fast, easy way to back up your on-site database to the cloud. Your backup database gets all of the benefits of Windows Azure storage, including the ability to scale as your data grows, enterprise-grade data protection, and the elimination of capital expense for storage hardware, paying only for what you use.
Today’s work involves all kinds of data - storing it should be easy
Today you work with all kinds of files and data, from presentations, to spreadsheets, to photos and videos. Make sure you always have plenty of space to store and access your files - and control who can access what - without spending a fortune for a storage solution.
Now, with Windows Server 2012 R2, a built-in technology called “Storage Spaces” uses virtualization to make it is easy to increase or decrease storage “on the fly.” Because it’s built-in to Windows Server 2012 R2, you get a simple, flexible storage solution to meet changing business demands, without paying a fortune.
