tape drive back upIf you are not on our #1 preferred backup solution, please take 2 minutes to read this article as it contains a very important message regarding your company’s backup and your ability to be up and running fast in the event of a data-erasing natural disaster, server failure, virus attack, or other “digital crisis.” And since September is National Disaster Preparedness Month, we felt this was an appropriate time to remind you about this.

Several years ago, we discovered a tremendous backup and disaster recovery system. When we first found this solution, we were skeptical that it could deliver protection and security for an incredibly low price. But after doing a ton of research and testing, we found that this is by far an absolute necessity for all companies concerned at all about securing their computer data.

While many backup systems are “good,” there are a lot of problems with many older, inferior systems. Problems such as:

  • Not backing up ALL of your critical data off-site.
  • If a problem were to disable your server(s), it could cost thousands to restore and would take a few days (minimum) to get you back up and running.
  • It may not do open files or continuous backups; that means you could lose an entire day’s worth of work if something goes wrong.
  • You have to do something manually in the process, leaving room for human error.

That’s why we want to make the switchover a no-brainer for you. When you replace your old backup system with this one by September 30, 2014, we will waive the setup fee (normally $400-$2000, depending on how many servers you have).

This is not about us making money - it’s about YOU having the right backup in place to make sure you never have to deal with the costs and devastation of being “out of business” and without your data.

Managed IT services take the hassle out of maintaining and staffing an in-house IT department, allowing businesses to avoid the mundane tasks like monitoring of IT networks and concentrating on more important projects.

By hiring a managed IT service provider to maintain and monitor the IT networks, attorneys and law firms can rest assured that their IT networks will always be up and running. Moreover, the managed service provider or MSP will take care of small details like managing the hardware and software upgrades, patches and license renewals.

2. Help Desk
Businesses often do not want to call in a technician for smaller issues because of the time it takes to get a technician to visit and the visitation charges associated. To avoid such situations, managed IT services offer help desk services where the MSP can guide their clients online or over the phone to resolve small issues.

3. Automated Processes
By automating the online backup of the data, maintenance checks, network scans, license renewals and patch updates, businesses can save a lot of money and time as well. By scheduling these services during the non-peak hours, MSPs ensure that none of the regular business activities get affected.

Hiring a managed IT service provider is like hiring an additional set of eyes and ears to monitor and manage your IT networks.

This works especially well for attorneys and small and medium sized legal firms because IT is not their business expertise and they would rather avoid the additional costs of having an in-house IT department. SocialMedia_Dec17_C

Here are the three ways in which hiring managed IT service can help legal firms.

1. 24×7 Support

Most of the times, IT issues are such that they can be monitored over the network and be resolved immediately. But sometimes there are issues that need immediate onsite support. In the absence of an in-house IT team, the support services are often outsourced to vendors. But since the issue resolution depends on the availability of a technician, often these problems can drag on for days.

Hiring a managed IT service provider means that you have access to onsite support all the time to take care of these smaller issues. Businesses do not have to wait up for days for a technician to show up and resolve the issues. With managed IT services, businesses have a third party responsible for support services available all the time and issues can be resolved quickly.

Most of the small and medium sized businesses do not opt for a fully staffed in-house IT department. Reasons vary from limited budgets to limited real estate space and even inability to hire expert professionals to manage the IT department.

In some cases though businesses have a limited IT department that is responsible for managing the IT networks and other needs.

However, with such limited department, your IT staff spends most of their time in mundane tasks like keeping back-office systems running and old versions updated which can be frustrating and can also lead to wastage of time and limited resources.

By hiring cloud computing solutions in Santa Clara, businesses can ease up the pressure on their in-house IT department by replacing the legacy technology with digitally advanced cloud solutions. This frees up valuable IT time which can be better spent on matters that really pertain to growing the business like customer services and other in-house IT projects.

By collaborating with in-house IT, businesses can tie up their security concerns and back-end systems like accounting databases, client information etc with cloud services. Similarly by collaborating with vendor, in-house IT can manage the support services, cross vendor solutions etc.

By easing the pressure on in-house IT staff, organizations can better motivate their employees to concentrate on projects that contribute to their business’s growth.

The first step in setting up a managed network system for any law firm is to deploy a reporting and monitoring management console that accumulates & aggregates the data for the performance of the network. This central knowledge system sends this data back to the MSP so that your MSP can identify and predict the problems with your network and resolve the issues before they can escalate. hand holding internet

Once this system is set up the MSP starts monitoring the network for problems. Usually, managed IT services providers in Santa Clara set up thresholds for the performance levels of all devices, servers and other infrastructure being monitored. These threshold limits are then combined with alerts and notifications for any deviations from the standard behavior expected which inform the MSPs about the current issues even before they are noticed by the attorneys.

In addition to this, managed IT service providers also maintain a status for current issues being resolved and the progress of remediation process so that they can monitor for further issues.

By analyzing these metrics, these MSPs are able to predict future issues and can deal with them in a timely fashion to provide a seamless network for their clients.

We have discussed in a few of our previous posts the reasons that make managed IT services a must for small and medium sized law firms.

Apart from managing and ensuring the security of huge amount of data generated by legal firms, a managed IT service provider makes sure that their network is always up and running, none of their critical business processes are affected because of any downtime and that the network is secure against any virus or malware attack. IT buyers guide report cover

Once the businesses are sure of the benefits of hiring a managed IT service provider in Santa Clara, the next step is to determine the process that needs to be followed for setting up managed network services.

The first step in the process is to deploy a monitoring management console that will collect the data regarding the network performance and send it to your MSP or managed service provider regarding the uptime and the downtime, security of your network and even the connectivity.

Through this management console, your MSP can monitor your network 24X7 and identify problems before they happen and materialize into monumental issues. Since this centralized knowledge center is accessible online, your MSP can manage your network anytime and anywhere giving you the guarantee that your network is secure!

In this series of short blog posts I am covering the reasons why businesses are making a move to the cloud.

As opposed to the popular belief that a move to the cloud is undertaken to support their IT functions and requirements, a recent study by IBM has proven that businesses are migrating their business functions to the cloud to support their business decisions and not to support their IT needs. iPad 2014 June

Today, most of the organizations operate in a virtualized environment where all the business critical applications and data are stored digitally.

It becomes helpful in situations where there are multiple offices with a number of teams and all need to work in tandem to complete projects internally and deliver the products and services to the customers.

The other reason why organizations are moving to cloud is because it can support a number of business needs.

Right from the internal communication between the teams and geographically far off offices, to the external communication with different channel partners and customers, cloud computing solutions in Bay Area can support all.

Moreover, organizations are also migrating their office productivity suites and storage to the cloud because of the efficiency and the cost effectiveness of this platform.

By migrating most of their business functions to the cloud, businesses are trying to tighten the link between technology and business outcomes and are getting successful at it too.

Most of the corrective measures organizations take to monitor and resolve their IT network issues come into play after the problem has reached a monumental level and the work is affected across all departments.

Imagine if you can avoid such situations and can identify these problems before they happen?

What is Managed IT Network Services?

What is Managed IT Network Services?

With proactive monitoring of the networks, organizations can diagnose the problems before they have a chance to escalate into bigger issues and disrupt the workflow.

However, to do that organizations need to dedicate a separate team that is responsible for just monitoring the networks and resolving the issues. That would mean hiring professionals that do not directly contribute to the business and maintaining them on payrolls.

By hiring Managed IT Service Providers (MSPs), organizations can outsource the monitoring of their networks to a third party who is responsible for performing regular and proactive maintenance of the IT infrastructure and devices including the computers, laptops, servers and IT equipment.

By collecting and analyzing the performance data of your IT networks, these MSPs can predict the problems before they have a chance to become issues and affect the productivity of your organization.

In this series of short blog posts I am covering the reasons why businesses are moving to the cloud. Contrary to the popular belief that businesses move to the cloud to support their IT functions and requirements, a recent survey by IBM has shown that organizations are making a move to the cloud to support their business decisions which includes gaining business intelligence data. SocialMedia_Dec17_C

The next reason why businesses are opting for cloud computing services in Bay Area is that it makes collaboration between different teams easier.

2. Ease of Collaboration
With cloud based storage systems, businesses can ensure that their data is secure and safely backed up regularly, including the data from the personal mobile devices being used by their employees. Moreover, since the data stored in the cloud is accessible online, employees can access this data from anywhere and anytime via any platform.

Globalization has led to an expansion in the business operations and even with small and medium sized businesses, the operations are spread across the borders. With customers, markets and distribution networks spread all over the world it is important for businesses to ensure that all their offices and employees are connected at all times with each other, central data centers as well as are in touch with customers.

Cloud computing makes it possible for organizations to break down the communication silos and integrate the communication between all the members of the supply chain into a one smooth continuos flow.
