What do Cloud Systems mean to the normal person
Increase your ease of work, and expansion of business, with a cloud system from System Force.
Owning a website is just the first step. You need to develop it, and fill it with relevant information and attractive features. Most importantly, you need to make sure that the website runs smoothly with your business and is a platform for an effective expression and a way to connect with the visitors.
If you own a website, then what cloud hosted systems mean to you is that your website would no longer be powered by just one server. It will be collectively powered, and processed, by a group of servers which form a cloud. This attractive feature helps you to have the power of many servers at an affordable price.
For big companies, it’s good news, because when their peak season of business arrives, all these servers can pick up the load without letting it affect the quality and speed of the website. For small businesses, it is a positive, but ambitious step to take as it means they are aiming for a much greater level of success of their business. It would also indicate a good approach toward steering clear of server crashes and network fluctuations.
Since you only need to pay for the services that you make use of, whether it is a big or small company, a cloud hosted system is cost-effective. Even a small business venture can make use of the latest technology and high-quality servers with cloud-based services. It will also reduce the need for onsite servers and other technological expenses, thus saving resources and the time and effort taken to maintain them endlessly. This also helps you to make an environmentally friendly contribution because of the reduced servers.
With a cloud hosted system, your website gains potential to tap in to more target audience with superior quality of work and speed.
There are two types of “Cloud” terms used in the world of I.T., Cloud being based on the internet on multiple servers stored anywhere, and Private cloud – typically hosted in a private data centre where only your business has access to it
There are up sides and down sides to both. Rather than create a massive page that will leave anybody confused, there are some uses for Cloud Solutions below. Or contact us to find out more about what we can offer you.

With technology in the computer industry changing so quickly, servers and server systems are normally replaced every three years. It has been identified that your current server is approaching, or has passed, this three year threshold. This means the server has or will shortly have no manufacturer warranty and an extended warranty service is not available.
This poses a significant risk, should the server fail we may not be able to provide parts or fix it quickly enough, to ensure the minimum level of disruption to your business.
At System Force we like to offer our customer the latest in technology and network design, taking into consideration the issues that customers face and the “issues of backups”.
We have developed a new network design called “Distributed SBS”. This means is that instead of one massive server on your site, you have a smaller server that is controlled by another server located in our Datacentre.
This other server runs the majority of heavier services (like email) and keeps an offsite copy of all of your data. The data is synchronised on a nightly basis and eliminates the need for you to change backup tapes; we backup the data in our Datacentre every day to your exact requirements.
Because we have very large server systems in our Datacentre, it means that we can run your server for you and control your network rapidly and efficiently
- Email and Files Currently, when your internet connection fails, you are unable to send or receive emails. With our system all it means is you use an alternative connection (phone tethering, 3G dongle, public Wi-Fi) and you can logon to the Outlook Web access, SharePoint, even use your files and continue without any interruption to your business.
- Backup Takes the responsibility from you to support your growing backup needs.
- Disaster Recovery (DR) – Should the worst happen (flood, fire or other disaster) and the on site server is destroyed, or unavailable, we can quickly set you up to work from anywhere with an internet connection with the minimum of downtime.
- Security Distributed SBS comes with a new managed firewall service, which provides the business owner with the ability to see what his/her staff are browsing on the internet. The system also creates a very secure tunnel to your section of our network. This allows the information you use and require to be replicated securely, offsite to us.
- Remote access Because the server that is hosted with us, is connected to our optical backbone to the internet it means when you connect into the system you are connecting to our Datacentre which allows you far faster connectivity that you would expect to receive at your premises.
- Mobile Device support Utilising Distributed SBS will allow you to integrate Windows Phone (Or other phones) into your system more effectively and not requiring Blackberry servers, saving on cost and time.
- Information Organisation Streamline document access and control information sharing using a centralized data repository that can be accessed from any computer on the network.
