Grow Your Business with Cloud Computing Solutions
You’ve read or heard about the benefits of cloud computing for business; but how do you know where to start or what cloud solutions are most appropriate for your company?
While some businesses have gone cloud wholeheartedly, completely removing servers from their office and working 100% ‘in-the-cloud’, not every organization is in a position to follow suit. Maybe you’ve just recently invested a large amount of capital into new server hardware; perhaps you do not have sufficient Internet bandwidth available yet. Regardless of your current situation, there are still a magnitude of solutions available that almost every business can take advantage of.
Dorset Connects offers cloud computing solutions that can help you stay ahead of the game; and when you’re ahead of the game, you lead!

What the cloud offers your business
File Sync and Sharing
We all know and love the benefits of being able to share files between multiple computers, cell phones, and users, by using services like Dropbox, Box, and OneDrive. However, there are inherent security concerns with syncing and sharing your valuable business data and customers’ PHI (Protected Health Information) in a public environment. For organizations concerned with the security of their data, private sync and share options are available and cost effective.
Organizations have begun hosting specific applications in the cloud usually to allow employees or contractors outside of the office to access data easily or to mitigate and segregate the load and support costs on existing in-house systems. Some very common applications that are often ‘clouded’ include email, accounting packages (QuickBooks/SAGE Acounting), ERP platforms (Microsoft Dynamics, SAP), Scheduling Software, CRMs, etc…
With the availability of hosted exchange and similar platforms, the need for your own in-house email server has dwindled. More and more organizations are moving to and benefiting from hosted email.
Data Backup and Disaster Recovery
Traditionally over-looked, data backup or disaster recovery solutions can now be custom tailored to meet your specific needs and budget. Businesses today need Business Continuity, not just backups. The business needs to get back online quickly, even after a server failure. Backing up to the cloud alone does not provide Business Continuity. This is beyond backups.
