Business Continuity

So your system goes down. How quickly can you get your business back up and running?

Sol-Tec’s robust solutions keep your business critical data secure, compliant, and available onsite and in the cloud. So if the unforeseen happens, your business can stay up and running.

Talk to us about:

  • Disaster Recovery – bespoke recovery and testing infrastructure in locations that work for you, using recovery policies that you set. Simple.
  • Data protection – reliably protecting your critical assets, wherever they are. Secure.
  • Storage – simple data storage that scales as your business changes and remains accessible. Safe.

Cloud Platform

Cloud Platform

Greater flexibility and scalability to innovate, adapt, and save money

Over time, in-house servers become costly, time consuming to manage, and inflexible. They can slow your business down and compromise security. And the IT team will probably be focussed on keeping things running when they could be innovating. Not ideal.

Cloud platforms like Microsoft Azure can help businesses stay agile, save money and better integrate apps and data. Limitless scalability means you can react faster to new opportunities. And extreme security keeps data locked-down but fingertip accessible. And you control the environment. So it stays 100% uniquely yours. It can be fully integrated with your existing or legacy IT. And you only pay for what you use.

All of which helps progressive businesses overcome growing pains.

Talk to us about:

  • Migration – ensuring best-practice cloud platform set-up and migration to transform your business
  • Azure Support - Reduce burden on internal resources by leveraging our technical expertise to support your cloud infrastructure
  • Data Storage Management – reduce costs and increase disaster recovery capability by leveraging cloud or hybrid data storage management
  • G-Cloud solutions for public sector bodies

Hybrid Cloud

Hybrid Cloud

Bespoke solutions that give you the best of both worlds

You may choose to migrate some apps to the cloud, but retain other data and workloads in a private cloud infrastructure - or on a physical server platform. This might be because you have invested heavily in infrastructure or because certain workloads or data are better suited there. That’s fine.

A Sol-Tec hybrid solution allows you to scale resources for specific workloads and run apps on the best platform for a given task. It also allows you to place data in locations mandated by compliance or security.

Sol-Tec can help you determine a best-fit strategy for the current demands of your business. This strategy will be placed within a flexible framework that will enable you to manage future change efficiently.

Our experts will audit your systems. We will examine your network to determine the best solutions. Ongoing - we will help your business adjust culturally to a modern, collaborative, service-based approach.

Talk to us about:

  • Maximising Workload – we help you choose what to put in the cloud and what to retain onsite
  • Migration – we enable the seamless migration of data and apps onto your cloud platform
  • Managed Cloud – best-practice management of your unique cloud environment that amalgamates your existing systems with private and public cloud environments

Efficient IT Management

Efficient IT Management

Reduce complexity and cost - wherever your IT lives

With some workloads onsite and others in the cloud (as well as a growing BYOD culture) IT has never had to work harder. But managing distributed IT doesn’t have to be complicated and costly. Far from it.

Cloud environments are usually managed from a single online interface. That means changing policies, adding users, increasing capacity, monitoring, testing and other tasks can be completed anywhere, anytime. And automation means that repetitive tasks can be completed quickly and reliably.

You don’t need to migrate your IT entirely to the cloud to do all this. Hybrid environments can also be managed efficiently via cloud tools like Microsoft Intune and Operations Management Suite. These solutions allow IT teams to manage entire environments across multiple vendors wherever they are.

Is it time to transform your business management? We can help.

Talk to us about:

  • Assisted Solution Migration – implement cutting-edge IT management tools with predictable services that deliver results quickly and empower users
  • IT Process Automation – deliver more without increasing resources by optimising processes
  • Asset Management – more compliance, more systems insight, less cost . . . support streamlined upgrades, new project roll-outs, and licensing negotiations
