Cloud computing in education has now become accessible and affordable. You have the ability to completely replace your traditional ICT hardware with simple (and very small) terminals which connect into hosted machines. This allows you to dramatically lower your carbon footprint and electricity bill! Below you can see the main six cloud computing solutions that we can implement in schools.
This premium anti-spam service filters each individual e-mail before it reaches your server and is therefore completely removed into a separate quarantine area. This is incredibly powerful as it leaves you completely risk free.
Now of course there are always new viruses coming out with clever ways to avoid anti-spam detection however our service automatically updates its anti-spam definitions globally every 15 minutes.
When you consider that, on average, a user spends 15 minutes per day deleting or checking spam e-mail, it’s really easy to accumulate wasted time. If you have 15 users this means 3.75 hours a day is being wasted due to spam. This works out at 18.75 hours a week, 75 hours a month and 900 hours a year.
What more can your business achieve when you suddenly find an extra 900 hours of productivity?
The cost for our service is minimal per user, which based on our example of 15 users generates an incredible ROI. You'll save money and get an additional 900 hours of productivity out of your staff. It’s also based on actual human beings, so if you were to have 50 mailboxes and 2 employees you would only have to pay for 2 licenses, not 50.
There are no lengthy contracts and you can give a months’ notice to cancel.
A single, central management platform alerts you when issues arise and enables us to proactively monitor your network easily and efficiently.

This highly proactive approach helps to ensure that if in the event of a virus outbreak, it is contained and eliminated as quickly as possible.

Hosted Desktop is one of our most requested education cloud services allowing you to replace your traditional office desktops with tiny devices that remote into your personal machine, hosted in our data centres.
Staff can also access their hosted desktop from their own internet, at home or on the move with any internet enabled device. Safe and secure access means they can immediately share calendars, files and folders at the touch of a button, truly enabling you to take the office with you.
A hosted desktop looks and feels exactly the same as a normal desktop, except that it runs on a remote server in our UK data centres. All you need in the office is a monitor, keyboard/mouse and a tiny terminal. This terminal will then remote into your hosted desktop ready for you to work.
With our service, your IT costs become predictable and more importantly, manageable. This allows you to "Pay As You Grow" rather than having to lay down an expensive foundation when you don't need it.
Should disaster strike, you'll be safe in the knowledge that your entire IT infrastructure is safe and accessible. It also means your staff will still be able to work whilst we get you back up and running.
