Whole Office Hosting
Create, Collaborate, and Produce … From Anywhere.
JR Vision’s whole office hosting, or rOffice as we call it, is a turnkey solution for businesses. rOffice allows businesses to run everything they need from the cloud at a fraction of the price of owning your own servers.
Shared files, accounting systems, ERPs, and even medical office software can be run without a server sitting in your building.
Is better for your business to run in the cloud or on a server in your office? That is a good questions with a few key factors to consider. The cost to run your server(s) will be similar in either case. However with JR Vision’s rOffice service includes some expenses which are not normally thought of in the server purchasing process. There is the cost of the actual server in addition to software licenses, backup devices/media, and backup software. Often overlooked are the expenses related to power consumption of both the server and the extra cooling, real estate costs of using your office space for a server and maintaining basic upkeep on the systems like applying patches or verifying and testing backups.
As an added benefit, JR Vision customers are able to keep the costs lower by only paying for the amount of disk, processor and users they have right now. In purchasing new hardware, you would need to project out how much disk, processor and users you’ll need to support in a year, 2 years and so on for the life of the system. With JR Vision’s Whole Office Hosting, you only pay for what you need when you need it.

Once setup, you are running in the cloud.
We are available to ask any questions and help in any way that we can.

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.
