5 Mail Archiving Mail Archiving Mail Archiving is our Cloud based solution that addresses the three main challenges of usage: regulatory compliance, storage and internal policy management, all without the associated complications of managing and maintaining an archiving system in house. The itg CloudBase archiving solution allows companies or users to decide, at a policy level, what mail requires archiving and who has access to this mail. It can be simply set to archive all mail to or from a domain, or it could be applied to individual users or groups. You only pay for the mail archives you have in place. In addition to deciding what mail is to be archived, access levels can be set to restrict access to the mail archive. These rights can range from providing all users with easy access to their archives though the standard mail interface, through to only allowing specific authorised users to view the archived mail. No mail can ever be deleted from the archive. All mail archived is encrypted to prove that there hasn t been any tampering, a crucial benefit should that mail subsequently be used in legal proceedings. In addition, all mail is copied to multiple geographically diverse locations in the itg CloudBase data centre network. This ensures it is always available and that there is a duplicate record in the event of a catastrophic failure of one data center. All archived data is held securely within the UK under certified standard. Unlimited Mailboxes, Policy-based data retention of all inbound and outbound Near real-time search and anywhere, anytime, access No additional investment in hardware or software so reduces cap ex costs Audit log of administrator access and activity No on-site hardware or software required Simple Microsoft Outlook integration Disaster Recovery in event of a Mail System failure All data stored for 10 years All archives are held in secure UK ISO27001 certified Data Centres
6 Cloud Backup Cloud Backup Cloud Backup from itg CloudBase delivers next generation intelligent data backup and recovery to protect your organisations critical data, in a simple unified solution. On site back up requires regular interventions and offsite data rotation. If the data is forgotten or corrupt your business could face a total and unrecoverable loss. Traditional backup solutions involve deploying multiple agents and storage targets on site to meet backup time windows. The backup becomes more complicated with remote offices and users who also require their critical systems to be backed up. Cloud Backup from itg Cloud Base, is an intelligent solution for both physical and virtual environments with application aware agents deployed to each network component, regardless of location, backing up centrally to secure data centres. Cloud Backup allows for both granular and full backups and restores of critical data, virtual or physical, with the ability to restore either individual files or entire systems. Cloud Backup never backs up the same data twice allowing a highly efficient and scalable solution to effectively and efficiently meet the requirements of protecting all of your organisations data. UK stored data so meets legislative and compliance requirements Secure encrypted bandwidth backup No additional investment in hardware or software so reduces cap ex costs Low bandwidth requirements, efficient use of connectivity Fast single-step restore Client side de-duplication of files High availability and reliability Certified to ISO27001 and 9001 data centre standards We create specific backup schedules tailored by time, data set and/or user groups so that this essential function has as little impact on the business as possible. We will fully manage your backup with reports provided on the storage totals, and the status of any recent backups.
7 Disaster Recovery Disaster Recovery The itg CloudBase Disaster Recovery solution provides organisations with an effective safety net in the event of a serious system issue. The Disaster Recovery solution is primarily focused around getting business critical systems back up and running to minimise the disruption to your business. Our Disaster Recovery solution is effectively complemented by our Cloud Backup solution, but the key benefit of DR which we believe is unique in the marketplace, is our ability to perform bare metal restores of our client s entire operating systems into our own virtual infrastructure. These virtual machines can then be used remotely by our clients and function as if they were part of your own internal network. This restoration process can be conducted quickly, avoiding long and potentially expensive gaps in business function. Once the customer has replaced or repaired the affected machines, we can then restore the data back from the virtual machine to the local machine. The volume of data and speed of internet access determines the speed of recovery but in a total loss situation you will have the peace of mind that we have your company data both safe and accessible. Secure offsite replication ISO accredited Data Centers No additional investment in hardware or software so cost effective Simplified and rapid restoration process Guaranteed service levels Fully scalable with demand High availability and reliability 24/7 UK based technical support itg CloudBase disaster recovery is bundled with our backup service as a single package.
8 Virtual Machines Virtual Machines A dedicated high speed internet connection is a pre-requisite for this solution. Virtualising your PC s and servers and moving their access to a data centre can reduce costs compared to the traditional high capital investment, ongoing maintenance and repair costs as well as reducing high power usage. In a Virtualized model, multiple servers can be consolidated, immediately leading to cost reductions. In addition, memory and processing capacity can be assigned to each application, ensuring that each is running as efficiently as possible. The flexibility of Virtual Machines also allows customers to easily up scale capacity on demand. We deliver Virtual Machines based on VMware, a market leading and highly available platform. The key benefit of this platform is the ability to immediately switch Virtual Machines to another server should there be any issues with the main server. We partner with an extensive UK data centre network for high availability at all times. Run multiple operating systems from one server Potential to reduce costs High availability with VMware Improve energy efficiency Secure and accredited UK data center network Certified to ISO27001 and 9001 Improved desktop management Work from anywhere anytime No on site data storage so no backups We offer a fully managed fixed cost support service which allows for an extremely flexible and adaptable network.
9 Private Cloud Private Cloud Private Cloud is a term used for companies that want to host a virtual cloud in-house rather than using a data centre. The reasons for specifying a Private or Hybrid Cloud is usually due to big data manipulation or a requirement or preference to keep all data inside the organisations physical site and network. Private Cloud is ideal for for companies that have a specific security compliance requirement and need to keep all of their data stored in-house. Companies that have a lot of very large data traffic in or out of their network, or those with an in-house application requiring lots of direct interaction will both benefit from a Private Cloud. Removes the concerns of public cloud security by keeping data in-house Ideal for large file transfer environments Privacy of data compliance Total control of your network Ideal for intensive in-house applications itg are a proven high uptime Private Cloud specialist.
