INTRODUCING VINET HOSTED SERVICES
Cloud computing and hosted services have seen an explosion in uptake in recent years, with more and more organisations taking advantage of these services allowing them to scale quickly and remove dependence upon on-premise technology. In the race to cloud, many fail to take the time to properly assess and understand the implications fully.
Cost should not be the only factor in moving to a cloud or hosted solution. While data sovereignty is becoming less of a concern for most, key considerations such as security and backup have become more pressing issues in today’s hybrid cloud environments. Few cloud providers include out-of-the-box backup and security features for data in transit as well as at rest, which is fast becoming a key requirement in moving to cloud services and ensuring the same level of data protection as can be achieved through traditional technology.
At VInet, we have the capability to work across a number of cloud platforms delivering best-of-breed solutions that allow our customers to take advantage of multiple cloud technologies. Assessing your technology needs should always be the first step in designing a solution that provides real value to your business, regardless of whether that solution is cloud-based.

PROACTIVE MAINTENANCE & SECURITY
Few cloud providers include out-of-the-box backup and security features for data in transit as well as at rest, which is fast becoming a key requirement in moving to cloud services and ensuring the same level of data protection as can be achieved through traditional technology.
Off-site backup is an important part of ensuring your data remains safe. There are several scenarios which could require the rapid retrieval of data, including natural disaster, security breach or data corruption to name just a few, however the ability to recover data in a timely manner is paramount to mitigating business disruption. VInet has a number of hosted backup options from locally based full copies to cloud based long term retention. Understanding the governing requirements for retention and the required speed of recovery allows our team to design a solution that will allow you to access your data quickly when needed.
