Cloud Backup for Your Austin Business

Also known as remote data backup, is an excellent tool used by many enterprise and small-medium size businesses. It ensures data and other electronic files are backed up on a consistent basis. Many times, due to it being classified as remote it is commonly located in some type of data center or offsite facility. Remote data backup is also known through terms like Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) or managed backup service as well.

These services are usually built on a scheduling platform through one of the many suppliers in Freedom Technology Partners portfolio. The platform determines when and how frequently critical data is backed up. The software is also efficient with replicating only items that have changed. Typically, encryption is required as many of these services use internet access to connect end users with cloud providers.  Encryption allows the files to be transmitted securely.

There are many products available in this space.  Some are targeted to high end enterprise customers and services while others are targeting to single end user configurations.

Austin Virtual Servers

Virtual servers allow you to save a substantial amount of money by leasing space in a data center and then using less servers by partitioning them. With this method, there is no endlessly waiting for set up. You can do setups and make changes in a matter of minutes, not days, or even weeks.

Benefits of Virtual Servers allow you the ability to purchase a server that is partitioned into multiple servers for use with, server emails, website servers and development servers for IT.

In the past, you would have to buy multiple servers for each one of those.  This technology allows you to buy less servers and partition them.  This saves a lot of money. It can be set up in a matter of minutes. You can purchase on-demand as a pay-as-you-go, or sign up for monthly programs. Very Scalable, you can turn it up or down at will. All the software is shared so you can use the software as you need it.

Managed Firewall for your Austin Texas Business

Managed Firewall is typically a network service that is provided as an add-on service for Firewall. As a remote, cloud-based service, managed firewalls do not require on-premise equipment that would require configuration and maintenance by the end customer.

The service provider is responsible for the maintenance of the equipment and a portal provides the customer access to control the policy that is deployed on the network-based firewall. A typical deployment scenario takes an existing firewall configuration as a map to create the initial rule set. Ongoing maintenance and changes for the firewall are provided as a service for the end customer by the provider. Benefits Include Network Security, No Maintenance and Cost Savings.

Disaster Recovery

Many businesses have an incorrect understanding of what backup & data disaster recovery is.
data backup is the act of copying and preserving your data in case of theft, fire, or any other natural disaster.
Data disaster recovery is an action plan on how to restore and integrate that data back into your working systems, minimizing as much negative effects as possible to the company.

Backup & Data Disaster Recovery is simply the coupling of these two separates, though complementary services. In the event of a data loss, a company can have peace of mind knowing that their database has been copied AND migrated successfully back into their systems. Benefits of Cloud Backup are the following:

  • Customer data is encrypted, allowing for peace of mind.
  • The implementation of restoring lost data is fast and easy.
  • Eliminates the need and cost for physical storage space.
  • The solution can be designed to mirror the database in real-time.
  • Off-premises storage that keeps data free from damage.

In today’s digital age, there is nothing more valuable to a company than its data. Data is literally the life-blood of a company. Without data coursing through its veins, the company would cease to exist. For some companies, data loss could be a loss of patient or customer files. For others, it could be losing legal records. Although data loss could mean different things for different companies, it translates into the same thing, closing the company doors for good.

Desktop Virtualization

This is the concept of separating a desktop environment from the physical hardware or client that is used to access it.  Often allowing organizations to use cheaper resources as the display client because actual computing is typically being done on a high-density server resource. Allowing the look and feel of a desktop often accessed by a browser interface. This allows lower end clients to be used for longer periods of time. Where it ultimately becomes an interface device for the end user to experience interacting with the remote desktop.

Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) is a desktop service allowing hosts to use their desktop on resources such as blade or remote servers. End users can access their desktops from many different locations allowing them to have the same experience. Whether they were at a home, office or any other office for that matter.  The administrators have a single point of standardization, security policy enforcement, and administration. Allowing them to centrally maintain images instead of having to respond at the physical computer.

Remote desktop services is a windows based component which allows a user to control a remote computer as they were working on that server. Citrix XenApp is another similar remote terminal for these services.
