SA’S LEADING IT SUPPORT & SOLUTIONS PROVIDER

Cloud Computing

Enhancing value at every stage thanks to proven expertise and exceptional service.

Cloud is everywhere. It’s easy to use, secure and commercially compelling. However, there is still a certain reluctance from companies to turn to the cloud, simply because it represents such a big change to how an IT environment has been traditionally operated. We take away the doubts and give you the confidence to embrace all it has to offer.

Whether you’re looking to start out on your cloud journey, expand on your existing cloud capabilities, or else want to mix and match to combine the best of your on-premise systems with the benefits of the cloud, we offer a whole range of Cloud Services to meet your needs. Through our own gitech Cloud as well as other public cloud providers, we promise advanced capabilities, favourable commercials and greater reliability.

Our Microsoft experts help you fully realise the value of Office 365 and its collaboration tools, while taking away the headache of email and seeing that you gain huge savings.

You’ll never need to buy a physical server again, thanks to our Infrastructure-as-a-Service. We provide you with a cloud platform aligned to your business outcomes and appropriate to your unique need for uptime.

Infrastructure

Based on what you need to backup and your business’ Recovery Time Objectives (RTOs) and Recovery Point Objectives (RPOs), we make recommendations as to what type of backup is most suited to you.

CLOUD INFRASTRUCTURE IDEAL FOR YOUR BUSINESS

Realise the benefits of a cloud infrastructure and never own or operate a server again.

Owning your own servers and storage is not the only way to access the hardware infrastructure your business depends on.

The rise of the cloud means you can just as easily pay for these things as Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), whereby the ownership and maintenance costs are footed by a specialist who simply provides the infrastructure you need from a purpose-built data centre for the applications that are important to your business. Think of it like renting an office. You use the space as you see fit, but never own the building or incur the financial costs of maintaining it.

But cloud has become so popular there’s almost too much choice for IaaS and making the right decision has become a treacherous affair.

Instead of having to seek out what’s best and hope you’ve made the right choice, we’ve dramatically simplified choosing and then using IaaS.

Cloud Infrastructure Services

Depending on your recovery requirements in the unlikely event of an outage, we help you qualify which IaaS option is most appropriate and best aligned to your unique needs.

Our years of experience and expertise delivering cloud solutions means we’re able to offer valuable advice during this process to see that you make the best decision.

Which cloud is for me?

IaaS isn’t the only thing we deliver through the cloud – we also offer services for continuity, Microsoft Office 365, cloud-based PBX Telephony and networking services, too, ensuring that we’ve got every corner of your IT environment covered.

Gain more from the cloud

Using IaaS through one of our many means you’ll never have to buy another physical server again, helping you realise welcomed cost savings and tap into the predictability of their mature services.

As your business grows you’ll simply consume more of the technology resources you need to run the applications your business relies on.

We manage the service on your behalf and ensure your systems and data are always backed up, so if your systems fail, we can resurrect them elsewhere in the cloud within 24 hours.

Public Cloud

Our own cloud is a cost-competitive alternative to keeping your infrastructure on-premise.

State-of-the-art server and storage hardware is hosted in a world-class UK data centre, ready for all sorts of requirements and demands. Using the gitech Cloud provides you with exceptional flexibility, custom service levels and guaranteed responsiveness should your systems encounter a problem.

Importantly, because we own the technology and the data centre space, if necessary we’re able to get ‘hands on’ with the hardware to make any repairs quickly and efficiently, so proves an excellent choice for business-critical systems.

Continuity

PEACE OF MIND FROM CLOUD-POWERED CONTINUITY

We take business continuity seriously

Secure and reliable cloud backup options tailored to your business

IT outages can come from anywhere – natural disaster, the growing cyber threat, power outages, even human error. It is imperative to have a continuity plan in place should you experience a major disruption. A vital part of this is ensuring that all of your business-critical data and systems are not only protected in the first place, but suitably backed up should the unthinkable occur.

We believe the cloud is an excellent platform for business continuity, offering superior economics and performance to traditional solutions. As continuity forms such a prominent aspect of your IT strategy, we spend real time understanding what would most successfully work for your business. By examining your Recovery Time Objectives (RTOs) and Recovery Point Objectives (RPOs), we’re then able to formulate suggestions as to the best solution for your needs.

Cloud Backup Services

Cloud backup overcomes the manual intervention of using tapes or other storage media to backup on-premise systems.

This media is highly portable so the risks associated with your company data leaving in someone’s handbag or being left in a car is eliminated too. It’s intuitive and highly autonomous which means your own people aren’t left sweating over backup success in the server room when they could be doing something more valuable.

Cloud Backup

File-level backup is ideally suited to sites with longer recovery times. This ensures that all of your file-level data – essentially your business documents and records – can easily be restored onto new hardware, or even to an external cloud service if necessary, always keeping your critical assets safe.

File-level backup

As well as having the reassurance of your data backed up in the cloud, we can also backup entire servers to our Private Cloud or Microsoft Azure as virtual machines (VMs). The backup can then be used to reinstate your servers as VMs onto new physical hardware on-premise or as an entirely new cloud service no longer at your site. It means you won’t pay for ‘just in case’ redundant hardware that may never be used, and instead you only pay for your storage, until it becomes a disaster recovery (DR) declaration and your servers need to be reactivated.

Machine-level backup

For those organisations operating in particularly sensitive environments, through real-time replication we’re able to take mirror images of your machines and your data every few minutes to either our Private Cloud or Public Clouds such as Microsoft Azure, providing you with the peace of mind that in the event of a catastrophe data or system loss will only be restricted to a few minutes. These backups can then be used to restore services to a location of your choice.
