      Tip of the Week: Choosing the Right Storage for Your Business

      Cloud
      The cloud offers quite a few advantages to those who utilize it as a data backup or storage solution. A major one is how cost-effective a cloud platform is, as the costs of maintenance and utility requirements are bundled into the service, and the only costs left are for storage space and the services that the cloud provider offers.

      In addition, the cloud offers fully customizable scalability to your needs. Unlike an in-house platform, the space and computing resources available to you are fully adjustable. All you need to do is inform your provider, and they will adjust your service to best fit your requirements. Furthermore, the cloud also provides improved accessibility. Cloud-based storage allows you to access the data stored in your provider’s facility via most Internet-connected devices through either a browser or an app, providing you anytime access.

      There are a few disadvantages to cloud storage, but your particular business needs may cause them to not factor in quite so strongly. However, speed can be a consideration, given your circumstances. If, for instance, you have a considerable amount of large files, or your Internet connection isn’t quite up to the task, working with the data you have in the cloud may not be efficient enough for business purposes.

      Local Storage
      Local storage allows you to access your data at increased speeds, but there are other advantages to it as well. A business that leverages an in-house infrastructure has increased control over their solutions, and as a result, more options.

      This increased control enables you to design and manage your infrastructure in a way that saves money for your business. For instance, a single server can host multiple virtual machines, and your information can be protected by redundancy.

      However, the initial costs are considerable because of the need to procure the requisite hardware and software, and scalability becomes a bigger concern. What’s worse, keeping all of your data in one place leaves you vulnerable. If a disaster were to strike, you could lose access to your data, assuming that your data survives. It’s also important to consider the fact that every several years, your infrastructure will need to be refreshed and upgraded, which would require another upfront payment to deploy the same platform.

      The Hybrid
      Many companies find both on-premise IT infrastructure and cloud hosting to have their own pros and cons. In cases like this they might use a hybrid of both. For example, hosting your email in the cloud but your line of business app in-house might be the best solution for your business. Your IT requirements, security compliances, and broadband speeds are all factors that come into play when making decisions about where your infrastructure should go.

      LSeven Solutions can help you to make these important decisions regarding your business technology. Give us a call at (877) 4-LSeven for assistance.

      Make the Most of Your Data Migration

      Why You May Need to Migrate Your Server
      There are plenty of reasons that you may find yourself in the position where a server migration is necessary. If, for instance, your current server to be inadequate for your needs, or it is no longer working reliably, it is probably time to replace it. The same can be said if you’ve managed to fill it to capacity, or if the manufacturer is ending support.

      Regardless of the reason, any server migration can be a hassle. However, approaching this task after properly preparing for it can help to simplify the migration process considerably.

      Preparations for Server Migration
      There are an assortment of practices that will generally benefit your success as you go about migrating your server.

      Cleaning Out the Old
      Your server migration process is an excellent opportunity to run an audit of the contents of your server and weed out anything outdated or redundant that is taking up more space than necessary.

      Testing a Backup
      With your server migration, safe is much better than sorry. There is the potential for an issue to pop up during your migration, potentially destroying or damaging your data. Testing your most recent backup before beginning the migration gives you the security of knowing that - even if something goes wrong - you haven’t lost your critical resources.

      Establishing Security
      Before you migrate anything to your new server, you need to make sure it will be protected once the migration is complete. To accomplish this, you’ll need to incorporate security measures into your new server, including firewalls, protections against Distributed Denial of Service attacks, and others. This will keep your data protected at all times, instead of leaving it vulnerable as these security measures are implemented after the migration is complete.

      Leaving the Old Server Running
      Once the migration process is complete, you don’t need to be too quick to take your old server out of rotation. Ensuring that your migration was completely successful will help you to avoid potential data loss, and if your new server isn’t properly functioning, not having the old server to fall back on could lead to downtime.

      Has Your IT Team Attained these Goals Yet?

      The right goals can help to optimize the internal efficiency of your business while maintaining focus on the future. What follows are some beneficial and attainable goals to set for your IT team.

      Saved Time on Patches and Updates
      Without regular updates and timely patches, the technology that powers your business would be both less efficient and less secure. However, you may find yourself forced to choose between incorporating these improvements and fulfilling other business-critical tasks due to time constraints. Neither of these options is ideal, as either one means that you are sacrificing the safety and security of your data and your company itself.

      Fortunately, there are options that make it so that you don’t have to choose between your company’s operations and its capability to operate. Automation can help you to keep your solutions updated, allowing you to leverage improved tools with greater security, and a managed service provider can help you to ensure that these improvements are properly implemented as well.

      Boosted Project Implementation Efficiency
      Even with an in-house IT department working on it, project implementation can be a difficult task, prone to errors and other time sinks. This is even more true if you don’t have a dedicated IT department, leaving the responsibility to your other employees, who may just not have the necessary experience to complete it correctly the first time. In this case, you are apt to find yourself wasting both time and money, as well as potentially dealing with downtime that the project was meant to mitigate.

      Leaning on a managed service provider to outsource your project management needs to is an effective way to boost the productivity of your in-house team. With an MSP’s assistance, you’ll know that the project was done right the first time, without needing to split resources between the project and any other issues your team may have to deal with.

      Increased Accessibility
      There is no shortage of ways that issues with your technology can affect your business and its operations. If, for instance, an employee is unable to access your business’ network, they will not be able to effectively complete their duties. As a result, time is wasted, along with other equally valuable resources.

      However, this downtime can be minimized through the implementation of a help desk solution, as your employees will then have a resource to lean on if they encounter an issue. A managed service provider can be a great resource as far as help desk services for your employees are concerned, as they are only a phone call or service ticket away.

      LSeven Solutions can help you set, and reach, actionable business goals. For more information, give us a call at (877) 4-LSeven.
