Cloud Computing Predictions for 2019

Cloud Computing Predictions for 2019

By | Blog

Cloud computing is ever-evolving, and new technologies and trends follow it.

New things are on the horizon as 2019 progresses, especially in terms of cloud computing.

Stay ahead of the game by knowing how it could affect your small business:

  • Accelerated multi-cloud adoption: Large cloud computing providers like Amazon, Microsoft, and Google will have to shift from offering broad services to unique, specific ones due to customers using multiple clouds for different business operations. Businesses don’t have to get a complete offering from a singular source, but can pick and choose what works for them.
  • Cloud AI and automation: Industry experts are expecting cloud technology to integrate a variety of AI-driven technologies, allowing businesses to transform how they use different technologies. This could give businesses of all sizes competitive edge over others.
  • Cloud computing skills lacking: As the cloud becomes more and more popular and the new default for businesses, shortages of skilled cloud computing staff could happen. The cloud requires very specialized skills that are hard to find and that are extremely in demand, making them expensive.

Cloud computing is the future, and businesses need to be aware of all the good and bad that comes with it as it becomes more prevalent and changes the way businesses run.

Leverage the latest cloud technologies and architectures to virtualize storage of business data, streamline access to applications, and improve business efficiency with IntelliSyn.

IoT and Small Business: How Do They Work Together?

IoT and Small Business: How Do They Work Together?

By | Blog

IoT, or the Internet of Things, is becoming prominent, especially for big businesses that can take full advantage of all its benefits.

But small businesses can reap the rewards as well.

IoT is defined as “a network of everyday devices, appliances, and other objects equipped with computer chips and sensors that can collect and transmit data through the Internet.1

And while big businesses are more easily integrating IoT into their day-to-day operations, small businesses can leverage IoT in smaller, practical ways, such as using smartphones and similar devices to automate and control different business operations.

Small businesses will have the opportunity to catch up to large corporations by using the advantages of IoT they never had before.

One example is improving energy efficiency and managing it in real time by gathering data on how much heating, cooling, and lights are needed for your small business. And small businesses can easily acquire the sensors and devices needed to do these operations.

And while small businesses will need to use a lot of data for IoT, fortunately they can handle it all by migrating away from traditional data servers to the cloud.

When you’re ready to integrate IoT into your small business, IntelliSyn can help with desktop-to-cloud design and deployment of public, private, or hybrid cloud networks.

All our cloud networking solutions are backed by complete network administration, maintenance, and reporting that simplifies network, data, and application management. And, our cloud networking solutions are designed to ensure all your business data is accessible by employees, partners, suppliers, and customers whenever they need it, from wherever they are.

A Custom or an Off-The-Shelf Storage System?

A Custom or an Off-The-Shelf Storage System?

By | Blog

Businesses of all sizes require storage systems for their important business files and data.

Choosing which type of storage system is ideal for your business can be daunting, but knowing the benefits of both custom and off-the-shelf storage systems helps narrow down the choices.

Whether opting for the cloud or for a local network storage offering, it’s good to know the main benefit of both custom and off-the-shelf storage solutions.

Custom storage system benefit: A custom storage system allows you to control the power of the CPU and the amount of RAM, meaning you can configure the power and speed of the storage system as desired, whereas off-the-shelf storage systems often comes preconfigured, without the ability to adjust specs.

Off-the-shelf storage system benefit: While a custom storage system gives you to option to tailor to your needs, off-the-shelf storage systems are more commonly optimized for responsiveness, and are better equipped to handle any issues and larger volumes of data. They are also less expensive.

For storing your business’ important data and files, both custom and off-the-shelf storage systems are advantageous, it all depends on your business’ specific storage requirements.

How Often Should You Actually Back up Your File Systems?

How Often Should You Actually Back up Your File Systems?

By | Blog

Data is the most valuable business asset. Many businesses would be left useless if their data was completely erased by incidents like cyberattacks or a natural disaster. Even system or hardware failures can occur, along with software corruption or human error.

Therefore, it is a must that you regularly back up your business data and files, but how often should you do it?

Important files should be backed up weekly, even every day if possible, manually or automatically. Everything else should be backed up monthly.

Many automatic backup options are available so that you can eliminate the stress of remembering and doing backups yourself. They also save you time, as manual backups can be extremely time-consuming.

IntelliSecure Data Backup and Protection services are designed to keep your data safe and accessible at all times. They go beyond basic transaction-based backup offerings to provide network backup for files, objects, and transactions. This includes complete backup and protection of your on-site files and folders, as well as your off-site data in virtual machines.
