Data Storage and Backup

Storage as a Service (STaaS) is a utility purchase of an on-premise 3PAR enterprise storage platform without the requirement for capital expenditure. Agile storage at a predictable monthly cost. As a consumer you receive the benefits of cloud storage but on-premise.

Client purchases £PAR with storage and performance based upon their requirements with options around file and folder access (HP StoreEasy), Disaster Recovery (Backup and archiving to include HP StoreOnce and HP StoreEver), Business Continuity (additional hosted 3PAR) ; and Monitoring and Management.

In this model the client retains peace of mind regarding security as the storage remains on their premise; You do not need the budget for a large capital expenditure; You benefit from enterprise storage which you may not have been able to afford before, and you can benefit from a number of different secure options for the service as a whole. This unique model is only available through HP and its partners

Business Continuity (Disaster Recovery)

The trouble with outside forces is that they’re not always predictable. You may not be able to prevent the worst from happening, but you can ensure that your business keeps working when it does. Disaster can arise from crime, fire, flooding, computer and Telephone system hacking or failure and breached legislation. A high number of businesses affected by a major incident either never reopen or close within 2 years.

We have the capability to complete daily “Off Site” Data Backup of your servers and even a Next Day Server Replacement program. Cloud Solutions for Business provide temporary Telephone System installation should you lose your service due to localised fire or flood damage.

Options are available for the smaller businesses – because we understand business continuity planning is imperative for everyone.

Our partners in Business Availability Services help you build a more resilient IT and communications infrastructure. Cloud-based solutions ensure your applications are always available. With the widest business continuity network and Workplace Recovery centres, our UK based providers are open for business 24/7.

When flood, fire, civil disobedience or other events prevent you from using your own premises, we can help with business continuity and mobile solutions.

From workplace recovery facilities in office suites to call centres that are ready for work in nationwide business continuity centres. There is even a provision for secure remote home or office working for your employees via “Emergency Office on a Stick” type applications.



Workplace Recovery

Each business centre offers fully furnished private office suites with telephony, high speed Internet access, meeting rooms and video conference suites – to keep your business operating during and after a crisis.

 If Workplace Recovery is not considered a vital option for your business we have the capability to complete daily “Off Site” Data Back up of your servers and even a Next Day Server Replacement program. We have access to provide temporary Telephone System installation should you lose your telephone system service due to localised fire or flood damage. Although if  using a Hosted Telephony system you could just divert the services to anywhere there is wireless or fixed broadband available!



Data Protection and PCI Governance

A Data Governance suite helps organizations manage and protect their unstructured and semi structured data—the documents, spreadsheets, presentations, media files and other business data in file servers, NAS devices, SharePoint and Exchange. These critical data assets are massive and growing rapidly

According to industry analysts:

80% of organizational data is unstructured. Unstructured data will grow by 650% in the next five years. Even though these assets are growing and important, critical questions about them can’t be answered without Metadata Framework technology:

A Data Governance Suite helps answer these urgent questions, aligns critical business assets with their proper owners, and empowers them with intelligence to make decisions about access controls and appropriate use, that are then executed without IT department intervention.



System Integration

System integration (SI) is an IT or engineering process or phase concerned with joining different subsystems or components as one large system. It ensures that each integrated subsystem functions are as required and work seamlessly together. SI is also used to add value to a system through new functionalities provided by connecting functions of different systems.



Sandbox Solutions 

All of the partners that Cloud Solutions for Business work with have been successfully delivering business applications and solutions from the cloud for many years.As with Tall forms of new technology, initially we are faced with resistance, questioning and caution around delivering applications in this way.

To address these concerns, test areas, commonly known as Sandboxes allow clients to not only test the Cloud delivery model, but also to test the application before it is implemented. This service is now widely used on new deployments, and has numerous benefits for the end user and also the software provider alike, which include:-

 End User

  • There are no large initial upfront costs, and on-going costs are insignificant in comparison to purchasing equipment and spending time internally to configure it.
  • It provides the opportunity to either take the first steps into Cloud computing or to sample the suppliers service levels before a long term commitment is made.
  • The application can be available very quickly, thus allowing a longer period of time to sample the service and test and mould the application to ensure it provides the maximum benefits to a client’s organisation.

 Software Provider

  • A testing environment is provided quickly in a cost efficient manner with minimum distribution to day-to-day activities.
  • This service is able to be deployed quickly and changes can be made simply to meet on going and changing requirements.
  • It acts as assistance to sales as Customers are able to sample the application quickly and the sales cycle isn’t extended while additional infrastructure is justified, procured and configured to allow a test to be carried out.




You can create a more resilient business and recover faster when problems occur
