Will This Work For You

This will work for your business whether you have physical or virtual servers already.

This process works for both Microsoft Windows and Linux based systems.

Pre-Setup/Pre-Sales

We start with a phone conversion and make recommendations based on the number of servers you have and the size of those servers.

We’ll guide you through this process, but we understand your time is valuable and limited; we can usually provide estimates after the initial phone call.

The Setup

The most common is that we simply take your existing server and move it to the cloud.  No, we don’t physically move the server, instead we convert it to something which can run in the cloud. Remember how you organized the icons on your desktop?  They will be right where you left them when we are done.

How we do this is based on several factors including the number of servers, amount of data and even your internet connection. We will work with you to recommend which method is best for you and your company.  Often times we can simply start a process after your work day and you’ll be ready to go the next.  Other times we ship a device to you and we perform the conversion to that device first, then move that to our cloud.  Other times customers choose to move to the cloud when upgrading or adding new applications and therefore we simply create a new server in the cloud and give your IT people or software vendor access to it so they can install and support the system for you.

As part of the process, there may be a few firewall rules which need to be setup on your side to ensure the secure transportation of your data.  On our side we need to setup the different processes and jobs as well as make similar firewall rules.

Regardless of the method chosen, we will work with you to have you understand each aspect of the process and what you can expect at each step.  We will handle as much or as little of the implementation process as you want us to.

Post-Setup

Once setup, you are running in the cloud.

You can give administrative access to anyone you choose, whether that is your software vendor, internal IT staff or 3rd party IT company. This is your server.

We are available to ask any questions and help in any way that we can.

Conclusion

From our initial conversation through setup can take as little as a few days although a week or two is more typical while we plan to minimize downtime of your system.  Your involvement is usually around an hour between the initial conversation.  If you have a system which we are unsure how it will work running in the cloud, we do tests and verify before you would be locked into a contract. In other words, if we convert your system and some part of it doesn’t work for your needs, we’ll either address that need or help you get everything back the way it was working. We want happy customers, but will settle for happy future customers if our services do not fit your needs right now.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. Do you support virtual systems?

A. Yes, we currently support both VMWare vSphere and Microsoft Hyper-V.

Q. Do you support physical systems?

A. Yes.  We support both Microsoft Windows and Linux based systems.  We have also done some AIX and HP-UX although the process or those is much different.

Q. How frequently can I have my data sync?

A. We have many options for this including a continuous one, however in practicality, every 15 minutes is possible.  It can be faster, but companies which need continuous usually have so much data being changed that bandwidth at their location becomes the bottleneck.

Q. If I sign up today, how long before my systems are protected?

A. While we can usually have the setup done in a day or 2, but then the systems need to sync.  That takes time and that amount of time is based primarily on the upload bandwidth at your location.
