The advent of the cloud as a consistent, always-available and highly manageable technology resource has revolutionised the workspace. Today, any sized company can access, deploy, manage and leverage any solution at any time, at a cost that is in line with their requirements.

This is according to Integr8, a leading ICT infrastructure management and managed services company.

Technical engineers and experts at the company have been clear in their messaging: the domestic market is eager to tap into cloud services, particularly now that it better understands the dynamics of this resource and what strategy is the best to gain maximum advantage.

Integr8 has designed its cloud services portfolio to address all corporate communications requirements. Its services package includes email archiving, off-site backup, fax to email, video conferencing, managed hosting, IaaS, and end point protection.

“What we bring to the table is an end-to-end service offering. Our services reflect the technical priorities that decision makers are now forced to deal with. Security, mobility, big data management and the internet of things are at the centre of the migration to fully digital, entirely automated ICT infrastructure – and businesses realise that the cloud can be used as a strategic asset and flexible, cost effective virtual platform,” explains Bennie Strydom, Chief Sales Officer at Integr8.


All-round communications management

Protection of assets and the ability to communicate instantly and securely is of paramount importance to all companies.

Integr8’s cloud services include a full off-site backup incorporating data protection and recovery, scalable online archiving, and protection from spam, viruses and threats.

“For businesses to invest effectively in the cloud, they require a choice of flexible managed hosting solutions – whether it’s a basic package or more complex enterprise-class service. Our focus is on providing the range and depth of dedicated server, managed hosting, managed co-location and cloud computing options available,” Strydom continues.

At the epicentre of Integr8’s service to the market is the offer to do more with less using state-of-the-art IT infrastructure that results in reduced costs and tight security.

One of the main advantages of cloud-based service adoption is the reduction in operating expenses relating to the maintenance of ICT infrastructure.

“We have various hosting options available,” Strydom explains. “Our objective is to empower clients with the choice of what level of control and infrastructure management they want, and this will have cost implications.”
