Why go cloud?2017-07-18T08:41:02+00:00

Typically Cloud computing removes the headache and upkeep of hardware onsite. Cloud Services are able to provide near 100% uptime due to spreading hosting across multiple machines and sites. For decades computing has relied on local Hard drives. Now every aspect is shifting to the cloud. With the likes of Microsoft we were used to onsite exchange servers and servers managing users, groups and data. All of these are now cloud based. The same is said with accounting and device management in general. Ideally, you will migrate to the cloud when the hardware warranty expires on your server or when you wish to simplify your environment as a whole.

  • Expiring Server hardware warranties
  • Removing on premise reliance
  • Hosted Software Services
  • Managing devices: iPads, Chromebooks
  • 99.X% SLA Up times
What is School Cloud Transformation2018-05-01T00:08:40+00:00

The MOE announced last year (2016) the initial pilot of the SCHOOLS CLOUD TRANSFORMATION PROJECT. This involved assisting 6 schools migrate the Microsoft part of the school system to the Microsoft Azure AD platform and MS Sharepoint. Both these product are available to all NZ Schools through the Microsoft License agreement. We believe this is the pathway schools should look towards when the server is up for replacement. Larger schools with in house applications should still keep an onsite server. If you want to discuss any aspect of moving to the cloud call us and we can walk through the process.

What is meant by the cloud?2018-05-01T00:09:17+00:00

The “Cloud” is Internet based computing that provides shared resources, data and Services to requiring devices on demand. It can be essentially described as accessing data or services from the Internet and not from your local Hard Drive. It works by sharing resources for efficiency and redundancy.

  • Hosted Servers
  • Hosted Data
  • Hosted Software Services

• Always available, resources spread across multiple Systems and locations
