The Cloud

Cloud computing puts the most powerful enterprise technology within reach of small and medium businesses, with an affordable per user subscription model and minimal capital expenditure.

The ‘cloud’ is a model where business applications, data, software and hardware are managed and stored in world-class data centres offsite, rather than inside your company. Depending on your business requirements or personal preferences, you can place all or part of your IT infrastructure in the cloud.

We’ve been delivering cloud services to our clients since 2005, so in an industry that’s seen a flood of new entrants in recent years, we’re well qualified to identify and then deliver the right cloud solution for your business. And rest assured, the transition will happen quickly and seamlessly.

Benefits of Cloud Computing

Transform Your Business

The cloud offers unprecedented agility and scalability for businesses. Because you don’t have to physically install or maintain applications, hardware or systems yourself, you can respond to challenges and opportunities in near real time

Reduce Capital Expenditure

Eliminates the need to purchase, maintain, monitor and upgrade expensive equipment, licenses and hardware such as servers.

Predictable Cash Flow

Simply pay as you go per user per month – tap into enterprise-grade systems on demand for a fraction of the cost.

Scalable

It’s easy to upgrade as your business grows and evolves – for example you can set up a new staff member with all the tools they need quickly and easily.

Accessible Anywhere 24/7

You and your team, clients, partners and customers can benefit from centralised information and collaboration tools, securely accessed online.

Security

Enterprise-grade data centres take care of the physical environment, archiving, access control, backups and management of the facility.

Reliability

Systems are expertly managed and monitored 24/7. Multiple servers, backups and networks mean there is no single point of failure, unlike with a single in-house server.

Low Maintenance

With support, upgrades, hardware and software managed externally, you avoid the costs and commitments of employing and training IT staff.

Options

XCentral offers a mix of private, public and in-house cloud services, as well as local data storage and onsite server functionality in the cloud.
