New technology can increase your efficiency, save you money and increase your security. Infrastructure As A Service (IAAS) is a way businesses can access the latest technology by leasing an offsite server, the technology is constantly upgraded without you having to invest in an onsite server. A simple monthly contract, provides a secure solution.
Software as a service is the same process but for your business apps such as docusign and accounts software etc.
What Kind of Upgrade Do You Need?
A recent project we worked on was with a local company that was looking at upgrading their existing server that was situated on their premises.
After meeting with the customer and discussing their requirements now and in the future we looked at their existing Telstra account and came up with the following solution:
- Remove the existing server on premises and provide an Infrastructure As A Service (IAAS) where there intellectual data is stored in a fully secured premises. This then allows the customer to access their server from anywhere and use the dedicated internet tail the server sits on.
- Upgrade their existing ADSL service so they will have more access to the IAAS server
- Remove their Microsoft exchange server and install Office 365
- Upgrade all the desktop devices
- Upgrade their existing telephone system
The solution was implemented and placed on their Telstra account, it not only saved upfront costs on buying hardware that quickly gets superseded but also by upgrading their Telstra account we managed to get some of the hardware paid for. A win win for all.
