Cloud for Business

Choosing the Right Cloud Service

The decision you make for your cloud needs will have a profound outcome. When you don’t know what measurable factors to compare, it can be a challenging decision. Thankfully, the absence of those factors shouldn’t be a problem if you’re looking to invest in an IaaS solution. With the explosion of cloud computing maturation, businesses are seeking a way to help clients reduce costs, increase supportability and efficiency, and create a platform for innovation and adaptability. IaaS does just that.

You can completely avoid the expense and complexity of infrastructure and secure your data safer than ever; and we’ll be by your side every step of the way.

Adapting to Our Virtual Economy

It’s an economy of limitless opportunities for some and disruption for others. According to MIT, the businesses adapting to the digital world are 26% more profitable than their industry peers. Our job is to make your job easier, and we believe that enhanced security, consistent availability of information on multiple systems, and lower overall costs are pretty important parts of that.

As businesses face shrinking budgets and pressures to collaborate over a dispersed workforce, desktop virtualization provides a cost-effective and secure way for employees to perform their job function from any device, anywhere.

Stable. Secure. Simplified. This is the core of Datasmith’s Virtual Desktop service:

  • Accessible from multiple devices.
  • Quick and easy desktop image deployment.
  • Reduced computing requirements.
  • Management of a Single OS reducing costs.
  • Simplified management and support.

Why Hosted PBX Beats Traditional Approaches

Let’s face it: we live in a mobile, digital world. With so many moving parts – cell phones, laptops, desktops, tablets, in-office phones, remote employees – it can be challenging to streamline and unify systems and information. That’s where a Hosted Private Branch Exchange (Hosted PBX) comes into play.

What Datasmith provides with a Hosted PBX is a cloud-based communications platform that is designed for cohesion and collaboration. This service not only saves time and resources, but it helps create the efficiency that unites people with common purpose. It’s not just about being connected – it’s feeling connected.

Datasmith’s Hosted PBX delivers:

  • Lower Costs (up to 50% on monthly phone bill compared to traditional service).
  • Simplified scaling and business continuity management.
  • Seamless integration of all communication tools.
  • Increased productivity and collaboration.
  • Increased reliability.

We provide the peace of mind that even if your business faces a cyberattack; you’re protected, your employees are protected, and so are your customers. Investing in a holistic BDR plan now, like the kind Datasmith develops for our clients, will prevent disastrous downtime later. Major benefits include:

What Benefits Come With Hosted Storage?

While on-site solutions remain a viable option for data storage, more and more businesses are taking notice of the Cloud-based storage options because of their ability to be managed and maintained from any environment. This eliminates the need for infrastructure, which ultimately conveniences the bottom line.

Because our hosted storage service is delivered via the internet in a pay-as-you-go model, your overall costs and time to deployment see a significant decrease. And as if it wasn’t appealing enough – compared to a traditional IT environment you can enjoy up to 90% reduction in energy consumption by migrating to the Cloud!

  • Software Test and Development
  • Backup and Recovery Plans
  • Big Data and Data Lakes
  • Cloud Data Migration
  • Compliance

Your data is valuable. Store safe. Store smart.

Internet of Things (IoT)

The Internet of Things is a concept that not only has the potential to impact how we live, but also how we work. IoT is anything that has the ability to connect to the Internet – from the smart phone in your hand, to your car, or to a plane’s navigation system. But what exactly does this have to do with your company?

In a world where everything that can be connected probably will be connected, there are a lot of possibilities, which also raises a number of risks. Even if the chance of one device being accessed by a bad actor is small, the large number of IoT devices being brought into businesses can create a significant security hole.

Adapting your business to IoT is no small task. It can have a significant impact on your operations, standards, and business model, which is why you want a skilled guide to lead you through the process to ensure maximum efficiency and security.

Datasmith is that guide.

Site

A proper build depends on having a solid understanding of your site and foundation. Part of Datasmith’s assessment includes a site survey to confirm that your company has the infrastructure to support IoT better business outcomes.

Connectivity
