Cloud Computing

What is Cloud Computing?

In its simplest form, browsing the Internet is a cloud service as is E-mail. You may already have moved on to using specific applications like CRM or Accounting applications which are hosted externally from your building and accessed via a web browser or secure connection. So, Cloud Computing generally means accessing the Internet for files and services rather than local PC's or servers.

How can it benefit your business?

Every business is different but the benefits are:-
  • reduced maintenance and costs
  • on demand for services as you need them
  • scaleable and up to date software
  • mobile, ideal if you have a remote workforce
The fact is, cloud computing can be a compelling option, but it’s important to decide what’s right for you. Here at Onyx IT we have the benefit of having a huge amount of experience in both traditional ‘on premise’ solutions as well as cloud based services.

We have used Onyx IT for nearly 10 years and their service has been simply great! They manage all our issues and using proactive monitoring they inform us of potential issues and put solutions in place often before a problem occurs. If a problem does arise they get back to us quickly and always provide a clear definition of the issue and quick resolution. One key element to Onyx’s service is their willingness in liaising directly with the 3rd party software providers of our Finance and CRM software packages and this gives me huge confidence in our whole IT infrastructure. Onyx-IT are not just a supplier to Raepak, they are an extension of our company and I would absolutely recommend them.

We would like to send a big thank you to all at Onyx for such a smooth and professional operation. We did not incur any major problems and everyone is very pleased with the outcome.

The upgrade has made a difference to our everyday workload.
