FULL-TIME, FROM ANYWHERE
INSTANT ACCESS TO YOUR NETWORK NO MATTER WHERE YOU ARE IN THE WORLD
Are you an IT Company?
Of course not, so why are you hosting hardware and solutions in your St. Louis office as opposed to a secure, cloud environment managed by ThrottleNet? Whether it’s part of your business continuity & disaster recovery plan, a need to work from anywhere, or a desire to get out of the network hardware business – ThrottleNet’s cloud services are the solution.
LET’S EXPLORE WHAT WE MEAN BY “Cloud Services” SO YOU CAN BETTER UNDERSTAND WHAT HAVING ONE CAN DO FOR YOUR BUSINESS
WHAT IS A CLOUD?
“The cloud” refers to servers that are accessed via the Internet, and the software and databases that run on those servers. Cloud servers are in data centers all over the world. By using cloud computing, users and companies don’t have to manage physical servers themselves or run software applications on their own machines.
IS THE CLOUD SECURE?
Like most things in life, if we can’t see it, is it really secure? In the case of the cloud, the answer is a resounding – YES!
ThrottleNet solutions implement security and data protection policies across all the servers they host which is one of the primary benefits of the Cloud – especially for those heavily compliant entities such as Healthcare and Finance. This is a benefit because it takes a great deal of the compliance and regulatory concerns around your network and puts them in the hands of a trusted, third party hosting provider such as Microsoft’s Azure environment.
CAN I HAVE SOME SERVERS IN MY OFFICE AND SOME IN THE CLOUD?
YES! This is what’s known as a hybrid environment and with Microsoft’s Azure hosting environment combined with Managed Cloud services from ThrottleNet, you most definitely can. Cloud and local servers can be configured to work in concert with one another as if both were in the same location.
WHAT SHOULD I THINK ABOUT WHEN TRYING TO CHOOSE BETWEEN THE CLOUD AND ON-PREMISE HOSTING?
There are solid arguments for both which makes this decision difficult. Maybe you have a highly remote workforce and feel the cloud would be a better method of file sharing. Or you’re concerned about compliance, but you don’t have the resources or the time to research and address every aspect that might apply to your business. Perhaps you want to reduce your capital expenditures with the cloud serving as an easy way to do so.
WHAT ARE THROTTLENET’S CLOUD SERVICES AND WHAT DOES IT ENCOMPASS?
Managed Cloud by ThrottleNet is defined as any cloud-based server where ThrottleNet provides ongoing monitoring, maintenance and IT management.
THROTTLENET’S MANAGED CLOUD SOLUTIONS ALLOWS YOU TO TRANSITION VIRTUALLY ANYTHING YOU HOST LOCALLY TODAY TO A FULLY SECURE CLOUD ENVIRONMENT INCLUDING:
Do you have a highly mobile or a remote workforce? Are you tired with the guess work associated with figuring out if your local server is compliant and secure? Or are you just trying to reduce the capital expenditures associated with purchasing new hardware every few years?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, ThrottleNet’s Cloud Server is the answer. We’ll host your servers in a secure, fully compliant environment via Microsoft’s Azure – an ever-expanding set of cloud services to help your organization meet your business challenges – in addition to providing full IT Management to ensure all patches and security updates are applied resulting in increased uptime.
And if you’re one of many startups requiring a secure hosting environment with minimal upfront cost and timely implementation, Managed Cloud by ThrottleNet is your solution. With plans for any size organization and a fully staffed award-winning help desk, the choice is simple.
ThrottleNet’s Windows Virtual Desktop is a comprehensive desktop and app virtualization service running in Microsoft’s Azure hosting environment. It’s the only virtual desktop infrastructure – otherwise known as VDI – that delivers simplified management, multi-session Windows 10, optimizations for Office 365, and support for Remote Desktop Services (RDS) environments.
An additional benefit of ThrottleNet’s Cloud Desktop is the user’s ability to work from anywhere, anytime and on any device while providing the same feature/functionality as their local desktop. This allows you to convert virtually any machine, tablet or thin client into a fully functioning workstation, but without the cost associated costs.
Lastly, this solution offers a variety of compliance and regulatory features so no matter your industry or regulatory requirements, ThrottleNet’s Cloud Desktop has you covered.
Most might be more familiar with the term “hosted” as opposed to Cloud Mail, but they’re one and the same. ThrottleNet provides the full suite of Office 365 mail and business solutions while serving as your administrator for those rare occasions the solution requires support.
ThrottleNet’s Cloud Mail solutions also play a role in your business continuity planning since mail hosted on-premise is difficult to keep secure, requires multiple servers to administer properly and a significant amount backup equipment to reduce any potential failures.
Finally, Cloud Mail by ThrottleNet helps keep your capital expenditures under control since you only pay for active mailboxes. This makes ThrottleNet’s Cloud Mail fully scalable while ensuring your ability to communicate anywhere, anytime with an internet connection.
This is one of the easiest and most cost-effective ways to implement a new phone system while also providing your organization with business continuity. Cloud Voice allows users tomake and receive calls via their desktop, mobile phone,desk phone or all the above while giving the appearance that you’re in the office.
Cloud Voice solutions also offer enhanced features such as online meetings, text capabilities and call center features that used to be reserved for on-premise solutions only.
