How two clients improved their operations using Private Cloud with no upfront costs.
In the first weekend of March 2015, Triella moved two Client firms to Private Cloud Services – and they are up and running! One client commented after the first full day:
“So far things are going very well. Working in the Cloud environment (even at our temporary site which does not have the optimal internet parameters) is very quick and easy. PC Law in particular seems happier on the Cloud server than it was on the server in our office. Worldox works the same as it used to – but faster. And I like that working at home is exactly like working in the office.”
A private cloud means that the services are tailored to meet the specifications of your business, rather than a one-size-fits-all approach such as consumer cloud services. Your company data is kept in a known location in Canada, and never shared with or accessible to unknown parties.

With a private cloud the firm or company pays for the services they need for the number of users they have, allowing costs to scale in line with their size, rather than having to purchase servers an infrastructure outright. Triella is a third party technology provider and provides the necessary physical or virtual servers for the applications required, hosting them in an offsite datacenter, with access provided via the Internet to the client’s office.
By using a private cloud infrastructure, we can provide a small business with an enterprise level of disaster recovery and business continuity capability. All your data remains accessible in the event that your office is closed down or damaged. Workers can quickly shift to a disaster recovery plan, working from home or other offsite locations, with no loss of access to data or applications. Redundancy and backups are built in, ensuring against data loss due to an equipment failure or natural disaster.
If you have a business or firm with 3 or more people, or if you are considering major upgrades to your technology, there is no better choice from a cost and recovery point of view. Also, if your firm has not upgraded the Windows 2003 technology, it will be the end of the life of that operating system by June 2015 – another great reason to move to a Private Cloud!
There is no doubt that moving your business-critical technology functions to Hosted-Cloud offers big benefits!
When it comes to the primary reason our clients opt for moving to a private cloud:
The simplicity of implementing essential operational capabilities such as remote working and robust business continuity strategy.
