Protecting Your IT System

Protecting Your IT System

Back when computer technology was in its infancy, most people believed automation and computerisation would revolutionise the way we work and do business. And it did, but not in the way a lot of us expected. Computers were supposed to be able to take over a lot of the work, and leave us with either increased leisure time or an exponential increase in unemployment, depending on whether you were looking at it as a ‘glass half full’ or a ‘glass half empty’ person. Of course, for the most part this hasn’t been the case- we still have as much to do as before, we just do it more efficiently, and the arrival of computation provided a thriving job market in IT services.

These days it’s almost impossible for a business to entirely eschew the allure of computer technology, and any business that tried would find severe problems communicating with customers, suppliers and other businesses.

Of course, this means that everyone now needs to make sure they have good IT support, whether on- or off-site. But there are certain common sense rules for best practice, which can help you avoid problems yourself before you have to get them involved.

There are two pieces of advice in particular which are utterly invaluable – and they apply as much to the home user as the business user. First of all, and this shouldn’t even really need to be said in this day and age – always back everything up. An off-site cloud solution can be the best way to do this, because even if your whole system goes down your data is still safe. Which awful possibility brings us to the second, and perhaps most important – allow for redundancies in your system in order to avoid creating a single point of failure. Something will always go wrong, and it’s vital to make sure the rest of your system can pick up the slack when it does.

For everything else, and even for help with these, there is Ghost. Whether you want a fully-managed IT support service or a pay-as-you-go ad hoc model, we can help with all your IT needs. Cloud storage, security, ensuring compliance with regulation- whatever you need, Ghost can do it for you.

Contact us today to discuss your business IT requirements, and we’ll take the tech strain and let you get back to worrying about your bottom line. Call 01279 800039, or fill in our online contact form.

IT Support for Small Businesses

What technology may or may not mean for the future has always been something of a contentious subject. A scant few decades ago, while the very idea of a computer in every home was something out of science fiction, received wisdom was still that advantages in technology would lead to more leisure time as the “robots” did all the onerous jobs we didn’t want to do ourselves. Of course, this latter prediction has singularly failed to come to pass, but in terms of personal computing, in an age in which increasing numbers of people are bypassing the home computer stage entirely and there is instead a computer in every hand, pocket and car, our reliance on computer technology has increased exponentially.

If your car breaks down, for example, you are just as likely to need someone with specialised computer know-how as you are someone with years of experience under the hood. Which is why, of course, more and more mechanics are expanding their skill sets beyond the traditional world of spanners and oil changes.

Nowhere is this more true than in business, especially the small business sector where you are less likely to have a complete specialist team on-site to deal with your problems. Which is where we come in. At Ghost Services , we are that complete specialist team. Over 300 organisations in the Essex, Hertfordshire and Cambridgeshire regions trust us to handle their storage, security and support services requirements.
