Everybody talks about “the cloud”

Everybody talks about “the cloud.” Are you in the cloud, on the cloud or under the cloud?

The cloud can simply be viewed as a network of servers located all over the world. There are benefits to using this type of infrastructure, especially when it comes to disaster and recovery planning. Karma Tech can break down the myths about the cloud and help you figure out what online services your business needs.

Do you have all your IT eggs in one basket? If a fire or flood devastated your office in the morning, how would you cope? Consider migrating some of your key services to the cloud.

Online Storage/Backup

Store all your files in the cloud and access those files from anywhere, anytime on any device. Encrypted and secure. Even if you already have on premise network area storage (NAS), this service can be used to create offsite backups. Automated backup scheduling and Drag & Drop functionality. PC, Mac & Linux Compatible

Google for Business/Hosted Email

Google Apps is a cloud-based productivity suite that helps you and your team connect and get work done from anywhere on any device. It’s simple to setup, use and manage, allowing you to work smarter and focus on what really matters. Gmail becomes your email server for all users with 30 Gb mailboxes. Easily schedule meetings at times that work for everyone, get meeting reminders, and share calendars. Google Drive allows you to store your files in the cloud, share them, and have access to them from anywhere. Collaborate on documents, spreadsheets and presentations with Google apps Docs, Sheets and Slides.

Hosted Phone

Replace that aging PBX phone system with a cloud based service. Small and medium size companies can have a sophisticated telephone system without the investment in telephone equipment. No special wiring required and it can be used with your existing network. With features like follow-me technology employees can work from their home, a hotel or on their cell phone while still being connected to the same office telephone system. Phones are shipped to users ‘plug and play’.

Virtual Servers

Do you have physical servers that are coming up for replacement? Consider converting that physical server to a virtual one. Full root access with a choice of operating systems, like Windows Server 2012 /2016 or most flavors of Linux.
