Comprehensive systems management is a cornerstone of IT in 2017. Endpoint Systems Management (ESM) allows not only tracking a company’s inventory of computers in real time, but also the ability to remotely push software upgrades and patches for a variety of software suites. Anything a desktop technician can do with a computer can be done remotely with endpoint management, and for an entire environment at once rather than one computer at a time.
The concept of hyperconvergence is relatively new in the field of cloud and virtualization computing. It’s become a bit of a buzzword in today’s business environment because it claims to be facilitating new efficiencies that are truly groundbreaking. At Calance we can speak to these efficiencies first hand.
Many companies have started using public cloud to host non-critical applications and for storage. Some have gone further, moving significant parts of more critical applications to the cloud.
Is a cloud-based DR suitable for your business? Find out if the cloud is the way to go for you and how to implement a successful DR plan.
In an effort to reduce ongoing maintenance costs while providing clients with reliable and fast disaster recovery options, Calance joined forces with Amazon Web Services (AWS) to deliver cloud-based DR services in 2016.
While most companies have some kind of disaster recovery (DR) plan in place, a shocking number end up being ineffective in real life scenarios. When disaster strikes – in the form a catastrophic weather event, floods or earthquakes, or even a power outage or fire at a data center – servers and storage devices may be knocked offline. Databases and websites may then become completely unavailable to potential users – and some will suffer permanent damage. There can be catastrophic economic consequences as well as headaches when this happens.
