Cherry picking from current cloud services to create the perfect cloud services for your business

Cloud technology can have huge benefits for your business if used correctly. However, it’s not the panacea for all your IT challenges. The initial excitement of the early days of the Cloud has worn off as business owners realise the Cloud is not a one-size fits all solution.

However, you can be smart about it. We cherry pick from the current cloud systems to create the perfect cloud solution for our clients’ businesses – this is called Hybrid Cloud.

Let’s first review the benefits and pitfalls of Cloud

The benefits

Cloud is cost efficient, offers virtually unlimited storage, simplified data recovery and back up; and accessibility from anywhere in the world (with an internet connection). Plus, it’s deployed quickly.

The pitfalls

You are reliant on maintaining good internet coverage – with internet outages, you’re stuck. Handing over your company’s information to a third-party cloud service provider can also involve a level of security risk. You can be more prone to hackers.

case study

So how do you find a cloud solution that takes advantage of all the benefits, but minimises the risks?

Well, firstly, cloud shouldn’t be treated as a one size fits all solution.

At Winbasic, we would rather create a customised solution made up of various technologies which maximise the efficiencies of the system, but also minimise potential risks.

Hybrid cloud is a combination of private cloud combined with the use of public cloud service. Our goal is to combine services and data from a variety of cloud systems to create a blended and well-managed computing environment. For some of our clients, we use our own custom-built enterprise data centre.

With our Hybrid Cloud solutions, we use a mix of onsite and offsite equipment to provide the optimal solution or your business. Whether it’s Google Drive ©, Microsoft One Drive ©, Microsoft Azure © or Amazon Web Services ©, a selection of all (or even utilising our own custom built enterprise data centre) we will tailor a solution to suit your business not only for today, but for tomorrow.


Office 365 – Experience the Benefits of the Cloud

Many businesses will face the decision to replace their IT Servers at some stage. It’s at this stage the decision needs to be asked whether they replace with the same type of environment or adopt a cloud approach with something like Office 365.

Different applications and technologies

The answer isn’t the same for everyone. Office 365 can offer many benefits to a business but the right environment needs to exist. Office 365 consists of many different applications and technologies and when implemented correctly, can offer significant benefits. It also allows a business to adopt an operational expense instead of capital expense.

Grow your technology

Office 365 is widely used for email however video conferencing, file sharing and project management are just some of the additional features offered. For businesses who want to grow into their technology, Office 365 offers many choices.
