Through the evolution of technology, cloud systems are the way we access our personal, private and work data, accessing a digital resource or service that isn’t installed locally on your computer or local network.
While most of us use Cloud systems in one form or another in our personal lives (email, OneDrive, Netflix). In business, it’s a way of consolidating digital resources into an on-demand, online and accessible solution.
It allows remote and mobile workers, clients and employees access to the company’s data and resources from anywhere without the need for technical experience or large financial outlay
System Force have dedicated privately owned datacentres to accommodate all public and private cloud requirements. Populated with Intel powered Dell PowerEdge servers, serviced and monitored 24/7 by technical engineers providing 99.98% up-time and support.
Companies need to protect their network from all data loss threats, including hard drive failures, ransomware, and natural disasters. Having an online backup service can make it easy to secure your files. Regardless of whether you backup your data religiously to hard drive or tape, you still need to have an off-site backup in case disaster strikes.
The System Force fully managed Online Backup service gives you the confidence that your data is safe and secure and readily available for when you need it:
While an online backup is the best defence in disaster recovery situations, using a local backup works well for quick restores, especially if you have a low bandwidth broadband connection.
With a hybrid backup, your data is first copied to a local storage device to give quick restores when needed. Then your data is then replicated to the cloud, so if anything happens to the device, your data is always available and you don’t have to worry about off-site copies.

Collaboration in the cloud can have a huge impact on how you and your business works with others. Remote and mobile users can work as if they are in the office.
One of the main benefits that the public cloud is that it is traditionally cheaper than a Private cloud (dedicated in-house hardware, software and technical experience). Public cloud servers and space are rented and therefore you only pay for what you use. In addition, the initial investment is very low.

Unlike the shared services of the Public Cloud, a Private Cloud is dedicated to a single organisation. This offers better control over the cloud, security and privacy, virtualisation and resource allocation.
A private cloud gives more control over the setup and configuration of the cloud servers, you can have it tailored to your company specifications.
Private cloud systems will factor in a better redundancy. Disaster recovery solutions are usually built with a private cloud, providing quicker recovery in the event of a disaster.
Sensitive data such as medical and bank records need a higher level of security. Using a private cloud ensures your company alone has access to that data.
A private cloud setup allows you to specify the hardware and software setups your business requires.
A private cloud ensures you are able to comply with the regulations that govern your business.

If a company expands rapidly, a hybrid solution can easily cater for the company’s needs and demands.
Although hybrid cloud systems can be quite costly, there can be a far better disaster recovery plan factored in. In-house servers can be backed up to the private cloud and non-sensitive data can be made available in the public cloud ensuring your data is always available when you need it.
