Istonish's approach to cloud computing focuses on integrating the best technologies for your business needs. We provide services based on their ability to deliver high security, resiliency, and cost-effectiveness. Our engineers work with you to bring the ideal blend of hosted and onsite solutions together for your unique needs.
Cloud technologies offer a number of advantages including:
Today’s businesses cannot afford outages or data loss. The Cloud offers redundancy, fault tolerance and business continuity assurance that is affordable for businesses of all sizes. Istonish can help you implement a cost effective design that will keep your business operating no matter what tomorrow brings. Istonish and the Cloud offer a little certainty in an uncertain world.
Istonish works with world class data centers both regionally and globally, in order to provide options that best suit your business needs and ensure that your systems and data can be brought back online quickly if disaster strikes. With redundant power, network access and best of class architecture, Istonish and our Cloud partners offer multiple layers of protection and the confidence that when the dust settles you will be open for business and ready to serve your customers. We work with you to develop a comprehensive plan integrating cloud data backups and recovery processes with our datacenter partners. We also manage the recovery process should you need it.
Software as a Service (SaaS) is becoming more popular as businesses recognize the advantages of lower up-front investment, smaller datacenter footprint, security, and always having the latest release available without engaging in lengthy upgrade projects. We work with you and our partners to provide access to applications in a way most useful to you. This often includes considering (SaaS) along with your on-premise applications to create a comprehensive solution.
SaaS can include back-office, line of business, utility applications such as:
Virtualization is designed to help you use your infrastructure and applications more efficiently. Virtualization is commonly used in the following areas:
In a virtualized server environment, several virtual servers run on each physical server, and all storage is shared. Virtualization software and shared storage are key elements in this environment, resulting in dramatic hardware consolidation and improved business continuity. The software creates an optimized “virtual” data center that provides dynamic infrastructure built on industry standards and is flexible to changing business needs.
Storage Virtualization merges physical storage from multiple network storage devices into what appears to be a single storage device that is managed from a central console. Istonish shared storage solutions are specifically engineered for virtualized server and desktop environments.
Istonish implements Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) solutions. VDI hosts individual Windows desktop PCs inside virtual machines running on servers in the data center. This thin-client architecture enables you to secure, maintain, and support your organization’s complete Windows desktop environment and allows it to be securely accessed and maintained from anywhere.
Istonish offers the flexibility and ease of maintenance you need to manage risk and react quickly to your changing business needs. We use multiple data centers and maintain a percentage of available resources to allow you to scale your requirements up when you need them. Because we manage the hardware and environment, your systems will always be up-to-date. Rather than building a dedicated datacenter, we work with existing datacenter providers to leverage their investment in facilities and infrastructure construction cost.
In the rapidly evolving world of Omni-Channel communication, voice solutions must merge with other technologies in order to keep your business connected to your customers. Whether it is a move to a voice over IP solution or an integration of chat, text, email and/or social media with voice, we identify and implement the best-of-class solutions for your needs. Istonish provides you the flexibility of the modern mobile office integrated into your environment to reduce overall support costs and eliminating management hassles.
Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) is becoming more popular for the same reasons as SaaS. Lower up-front investment cost, smaller datacenter footprint, security, and reduced maintenance effort are benefits of IaaS. Like your applications, we work with you and our partners in a way most useful to you. IaaS includes:
We have found that most of our customers have some applications that are not cloud-enabled. Those that can be moved to the cloud, benefit in terms of cost and high availability. Istonish considers both in creating hybrid cloud services and solutions for our customers.
