How Safe is Your Data?

Your business is generating more data than ever before, and whether you realise it or not, much of that data is critical.

How would a major data loss affect your business – could you afford to lose important things like customer lists, financial information, business emails, confidential employee information and business plans?

Whilst you may have a data protection solution in place are you sure it covers all data sources with adequate protection? Bad data protection is a bit like a bad insurance policy – full of holes, exclusions, and caps that leave you stuck with huge risks and costs.

Don’t let this happen with your data!

Backup as a Service

Our service is built on an immensely flexible platform based on agentless technology, which can be deployed quickly and easily.

Our true incremental forever-backup facility with advanced change block tracking, and enhanced WAN optimisation technology shatters the limitations of traditional backup solutions.

Disaster Recovery as a Service

Your ability to recover systems and data quickly after a disaster could be the difference between your business surviving or not.

Our cost-effective Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) is designed to deliver peace of mind and protect your data and mission-critical applications, whilst being highly cost-effective for the SME market.

We store a copy of your active servers, including all the data that they use, in one of our secure UK based cloud data centres. This copy can be synchronised to a point in time to within only a few hours ago.

If disaster strikes, your systems are recovered into a private cloud infrastructure which is reliable, available and secure. Unlike other providers, there is no time limit on how long you remain in the hosted environment, leaving you to concentrate on getting your business back on track.

The reason our service is so cost-effective is that we only charge for the resources you need, when you need them, and for as long as you need them.

So many providers promise the world and deliver far short of the mark!

i2 Global is different, we deliver on our promises and excel past your expectations. Our offering allows for your business to grow, keeping your costs to an absolute minimum and maximising profits.

Infrastructure as a Service

Without fixed assets at the core of your business, your business can grow without the headache of tax on depreciation allowing for it to meet market demands and reduce its tax burden.

We pride ourselves on our infrastructure delivery and stability within all of our offerings, so why not benefit from our vast experience in service delivery. We offer IaaS “Infrastructure as a Service” services for multiple reasons:

As a bolt-on service into our other offerings like Hosted Desktop platforms and Private Cloud services allowing for flexibility within our customer’s service offerings.

A stand-alone service offering, enabling customers to pick and mix virtual and physical infrastructures either bolting into their existing offering or completely stand alone solution.

Network expansion for existing infrastructures wanting to benefit from our resilience and the cost-saving offering.

Platform as a Service

Our Platform as a Service (PaaS) offering is a complete development and deployment environment in the Cloud, with resources that enable you to deliver everything from simple Cloud-based apps to sophisticated, Cloud-enabled enterprise applications.

You purchase on a pay-as-you-go basis and access is provided via a secure private Internet connection. Like our IaaS offering, PaaS includes infrastructure – servers, storage, and networking – but also middleware, development tools, business intelligence (BI) services, database management systems and more. Our PaaS is designed to support the complete web application life cycle: building, testing, deploying, managing, and updating.

i2 Global allow you to avoid the expense and complexity of buying and managing software licences, the underlying application infrastructure, and middleware, container orchestrators, development tools and other resources.

You manage the applications and services that you develop, and we manage everything else.

Private Cloud Hosting

Our Private Cloud Hosting Service is an ultra-secure, high-performance Private Cloud Hosting platform built upon leading vendor architecture, providing your organisation with the ultimate in reliability, availability, and redundancy.

Combine the high performance and security of dedicated Private Cloud computing with your choice of either dedicated or shared storage, depending on the needs of your unique business.

Hosted in a ISO-certified and PCI-compliant UK data centre complex, your Private Cloud solution combines cutting-edge technology from the world’s leading IT providers with our Private Cloud hosting expertise and dynamic support to bring you a flexible, scalable and secure private cloud solution.

In addition, we provide collocation services via our high-quality partner network. We then make the price point attractive by allowing you to fit more equipment into a rack than most other suppliers. i2 Global adds additional value within your decision making process by suggesting the correct data centre facility for your needs.

Whether you need 1U of rack space or an entire datacentre floor we can help.

Application Hosting

Our Application Hosting Services are delivered as service plans with package-based pricing that is based on a combination of the services delivered and the amount of support/intervention that’s required.

Enterprise Application Hosting Services Plan – Includes SaaS delivery with multi-tenancy. It provides complete isolation of virtual, clustered environments, with self-service management and rapid provisioning.

Dedicated Application Hosting Services Plan – Includes SaaS delivery with single-tenancy. It provides superior levels of security and compliance with the Customer managing the cloud services platform.

Managed Application Hosting Services Plan – We offer a vast amount of value in assisting you in consolidating your infrastructure, then migrating the infrastructure into a data centre facility. Including most importantly, selecting the best data centre to meet your requirements.

After all not all data centres are the same.

Hosted Desktop

Many businesses are using smart technology to drive user efficiency and the overall productivity of their organisation by keeping employees connected on the move.

The flexibility that mobility brings to the workforce reaps far greater rewards than just remote access, for many it also brings social and emotional benefits.

The work/life balance has seen a paradigm shift in the last decade, people want the ability to work flexible hours when they need to.  Traditionally staying late in the office was the only option, but people now have the ability to travel home, spend time with family and finish their working day afterward.

When deploying mobile desktops and applications your first consideration should be the user experience, as this ultimately drives performance and the overall productivity of your organisation.

Hosted Desktops present a Windows desktop to the user and look and feel very similar to a real desktop.

The only difference to the user is that they are on Windows Server instead of on say Windows 10, the applications work exactly the same.

Hosting your desktops removes the need for local back end infrastructure, dramatically reducing the upfront costs of providing the infrastructure to deliver applications and data to your users.

Virtualising the desktop also means that it is now available on any device (including Windows and Android tablets, iPads, and Macs) at any time.

Office 365

We have been providing cloud-based Microsoft applications since 2006 (that’s 5 years before Microsoft launched Office 365!) so we really understand Microsoft and the cloud.

With proven experience in Office 365 migrations, optimisation and back up for both small businesses and large enterprises, we are uniquely placed to ensure you get the most from Office 365 such as;

  • Office 365 Migration
  • Office 365 Optimisation
  • Office 365 Backup & Recovery

Amazon Web Services (AWS)

Amazon Web Services offer reliable, scalable, and inexpensive cloud computing services.

Free to join, pay only for what you use and with our fully accredited team of engineers we can guide you through your deployment, offering a full support service once you are deployed on AWS.

Migration and Support

A common mistake when moving infrastructure into cloud or colocation facilities is not to understand the true cost of hosting legacy solutions weighed up against replacing the solution.

We offer a vast amount of value in assisting you in consolidating your infrastructure, then migrating the infrastructure into a data centre facility. Including most importantly, selecting the best data centre to meet your requirements.

After all not all data centers are the same.
