Big League Tech for Everyone

Many people may think that cloud services, virtual desktops, and other virtualization technologies are just for the big boys – large enterprises with huge amounts of IT resources. And while it’s true that Centrinet has its share of large enterprise customers, we also have customers operating with only a handful of desktops. The truth is, if your business requires at least one PC then utilizing the cloud could benefit you greatly.

Small business is the backbone of our economy, but can often get left behind when it comes to technology. Outdated PCs, little to no disaster recovery planning, and insecure infrastructure can greatly weaken today’s small business. No longer, because Centrinet is here to help you reap the benefits of the cloud in a budget that fits your organization.

Hardware is a hefty expense

One of the largest IT expenses is in the hardware. Most PCs last 3-5 years, but often need key components replaced during their lifespan (like hard drives and power supplies). Migrating your desktops to the cloud with Centrinet can drastically lower your IT expenses by utilizing thin clients, or expanding the lifespan of your PCs. By moving your desktop to the cloud an old slow PC, or low powered thin client, can still perform like a brand new machine right out of the box. With the cloud you are no longer tied to a single device that sits in your office, but instead can access your desktop from anywhere with an internet connection.

Now you can easily work from home on your laptop, from the local coffee shop on your tablet, or even from Aunt Susie’s house on her old Windows PC, and still have the same experience as if you were sitting in your office!

An unexpected disaster doesn’t have to sink your business

Have you fretted over the fact that most businesses that suffer an unexpected disaster go out of business? Well most of these statistics are due to the loss of critical business data when a tragedy hits. Just ask yourself, if lightening were to strike your office today and render your IT systems inoperable, would you have the data backups needed to fuller recover? Do you even have the necessary IT resources that understand how to recover your systems?

With Centrinet you can stop worrying over backups and disaster recovery. We’ll back you up and have the expertise to recovery it quickly should the need arise. We also ensure you are 100% protected by duplicating your critical business data in two different datacenters almost 2000 miles apart – now you’re really playing in the big leagues!

Make sure your sensitive data is secure

Do you have sensitive medical, financial, or legal files sitting on the PCs and servers in your office? Relying on Centrinet’s cloud means that there is no longer any sensitive data on premises, instead it’s safe and secure in our datacenters. Plus, we put every security measure in place to allow you, and only you, to securely access your data and applications from anywhere on the device of your choice. Now you can make sure you are compliant with all government regulations on data privacy without ever having to lift a finger.

The magic behind the cloud is a bit complicated and difficult to understand, but that doesn’t have to stop you from taking advantage. It’s time for you to reap the same benefits of the cloud that our larger enterprise clients enjoy. Make a move to the big leagues with Centrinet.

Work Smarter with Centrinet

There are a couple of mantras that ring true in every industry, especially in the IT environment. “Do more with less” and “work smarter, not harder” are staples in IT shops across the country. And while these ideals are great in theory, there’s no attached roadmap to get you there. Instead, you are left with the following questions:

  • How can an IT shop actually accomplish the mounting projects with fewer personnel than ever before?
  • What smarter decisions can be made to keep you from working harder?

One option that more and more IT shops are implementing is managed services. Unfortunately, there are a lot of misconceptions and negative connotations surrounding this area. Many engineers see managed services as outsourcing, and the first step towards unemployment. But in the case of Centrinet managed services, this idea couldn’t be further from the truth.
