Flexible, agile, secure and ready to help your business grow.
SVA Consulting has developed partnerships with many of the world’s elite cloud providers to bring these advancing technologies to you. Through these relationships, we can offer you the competitive advantage they bring to the organizations currently invested in them.
Cloud technologies have made an impact on businesses worldwide, whether it’s on the bottom line, productivity, accessibility or collaboration. SVA Consulting can help you understand the differences in offerings and which model is best suited for your needs. The cloud is a confusing blend of technology and marketing, and making a decision on a cloud investment is very difficult. SVA Consulting has invested time in trying to reduce the confusion by discussing cloud concepts in relevant terms for business leaders. In the video series The Napkin Guys™, SVA Principals Bryan Bechtoldt and Tim Hanson explore the cloud through simple conversations. These short videos are intended to act as a primer on cloud technologies and the advantages of using them in your business.
Benefits of cloud technology:
Eliminates the need to maintain hardware
Secure, straightforward and reliable cloud-based application hosting.
In today’s business world, technology is vital for success. Anytime, anywhere access to applications is critical. At the same time, data security and protection are essential. Providing both accessibility and security often comes with a heavy price tag in maintenance, hardware, software and staffing.
With Application Hosting, you are able to have the best of both worlds with a lower cost of ownership! Application Hosting allows you to focus on running your business and meeting your goals instead of spending your time worrying about IT tools.
SVA Consulting works with several partners to provide state-of-the-art Application Hosting Services for your business applications.
SVA BACKUP PLUS
A cloud-based data backup and recovery solution to protect your business.
A business or organization without a backup and recovery plan is exposing itself to unnecessary risks and simply asking for trouble. Imagine a day when you go to your office and find all your company data – email, client databases, billing information, accounting data, PDFs, Word and Excel docs, client files, etc. – is gone. All the information you use to operate your business has vanished permanently!
How will your company recover? How will you recreate years (or decades) of information in a few months, all the while trying to support and manage your current operations? The ramifications of a major data loss are so great that most companies won’t survive more than six months. And though the scenario above is “worst-case," think about how your organization would operate with the loss of data in just one of your systems. It would be crippling.
Permanently losing your business information is 100% preventable with a solid data backup strategy and a system in place to recover your information.
Rely on SVA Backup Plus
SVA Backup Plus is an online backup system enabling you to preserve and restore all your files in a secure, off-site environment without a major capital investment. We even manage the setup and maintenance for you so you can concentrate on your business.
Our solution uses the same level of security that the top banks in the financial industry utilize for safe online banking. Your files are stored off-site in two mirrored data centers located on opposite coasts. Even if your company suffers a flood, fire or break-in, you can be sure your data is safe and secure.
If you do experience a data disaster – for example, your computer suddenly crashes – you’ll be able to quickly restore your files over the internet.
The system works both automatically and continuously, backing up files as you change them. Even if you accidentally delete a file, the system automatically saves a copy for you.
SVA Backup Plus Features
Gone are the days of installing drives and changing tapes. Those methods are labor-intensive and can take hours or even days to complete. Setting up our solution is an easy, one-time event. Within minutes you will be backing up files.
The entire system runs automatically, plus you are able to manually trigger a backup at anytime. Once installed, a backup set is created, which includes the list of files you want backed up along with the schedule. You don’t have to select each and every file.
All data is automatically transmitted to two off-site, geographically separated data centers. No more storing tapes or disks at your home or business or physically transporting media backups to an off-site facility.
No need to worry about purchasing more hardware to handle your growing data needs. With SVA Backup Plus, you will never run out of storage space. We make it possible for your online storage account to grow with your needs.
You can start restoring files in seconds with just a few clicks of a button….when you want, as often as you want. You have the ability to retrieve individual files, revisions of files, entire folders or backup sets. You can also recover all your data files in the event you experience a complete system failure or data loss.
SOFTWARE AS A SERVICE SOLUTIONS
On-demand software delivered in the cloud.
