Microsoft 365 & Cloud Services

As a longstanding Microsoft Gold Partner in Productivity, Platform and Datacenter, we’re experts in Microsoft 365. From initial advice through to migrations and ongoing support, we’re here to help.

Microsoft 365 (formerly Office 365) is Microsoft’s primary cloud platform for desktop applications. It improves collaboration and operational efficiencies whilst reducing costs. Features include:

  • Microsoft Teams, the app that combines document storage with collaboration tools such as chat, web conferencing, team calendars and voice comms
  • Cloud-based file storage in OneDrive for every user, with synchronised data held locally on PCs and familiar desktop applications such as Word, Excel 

We also offer a comprehensive range of best-of-breed cloud solutions and hosted services including Exchange, managed hosting, cloud desktop, storage, cloud back up, anti-virus, anti-spam and more.

Choosing the right cloud model for your business.

Public cloud means virtual desktops and storage is available to the you over the internet. You won’t need to set up your own physical servers in-house saving on hardware and maintenance costs.

You’ll only pay for what you need on a subscription basis and can scale up or down quickly to meet changing demands and workloads. We utilise main public cloud providers such as Microsoft Azure, assisting you with the full implementation and migration of your services and infrastructure with ongoing monitoring, management and support.

With a Private cloud model, you have complete control of your environment which is dedicated to your own use and not shared. Infrastructure is hosted on-site or in our data centre, allowing greater levels of control and security, with computing, storage and networking fully customisable to your business needs.

Our UK Data Centres are built with state-of-the-art facilities and the highest levels of security, resilience and disaster recovery capabilities with high-speed interlinks and 24-hour security.

Our Data Centres cover all standards for compliance and security including ISO 9001, ISO 27001, ISO 22301 and PCI DSS, giving you complete peace of mind that your data and systems are always available and protected.

As the name suggests the Hybrid cloud brings together a mixture of  environments to suit your specific requirements. Since not all workloads are suitable for the cloud, the Hybrid model uses a combination of public and private cloud with existing on-premise hardware.

Get the benefit of secure, fully managed scalable and elastic cloud with consistent fixed-cost monthly billing in your own private cloud environment.

Use our private cloud platform as the foundation for your hybrid cloud strategy, and a base for running legacy applications that can’t easily be migrated to the public cloud.

Increasing customer trust through compliance

Every organisation wants to build strong relationships with its customers – and compliance is one technique that should definitely be in your relationship-building toolbox.

Why compliance is key to managing risk

Cynics sometimes describe compliance as little more than a box that has to be ticked to remain in business. It’s often seen as a burden – but it is essential for protecting your organisation and ensuring it moves in the right diorection.
