At K18 Network Services Ltd. we recognize that providing the right IT solution is far more than just supply the right hardware and training.

It is a part of K18 Network Services Ltd.’s ethos to become an extension to your network infrastructure.

The essence behind server virtualization is simple: it enables the decoupling of the endpoint operating system, applications, and data from the underlying hardware. User profiles are assembled dynamically on-demand and delivered according to each user’s needs.

To users, the virtual server looks, feels, and acts like their own, locally managed PC, complete with the same familiar data and personalizations—but with several key advantages:

·The same consistent desktop environment can be accessed through any device, from any location, eliminating lost productivity from a PC which has failed, been lost, or simply been left in the wrong location

·Similarly, users no longer need to carry a laptop from place to place or fumble with thumb drives; instead, they become truly hardware-independent and able to start work in moments using any computer

·The elimination of locally installed software also removes local software conflicts, so entire categories of productivity-killing applications problems vanish.

·New applications can be deployed much more quickly

But the real value of server virtualization lies in its impact on the IT organization. As the foundation of a new server architecture, server virtualization frees IT from many of the costs and constraints of traditional approaches while making it possible to implement new technologies far more quickly and cost-effectively. Benefits of server virtualization include:

·Security and Centralized Data Management: Rather than having users store data wherever they like—a frightening thought from a security perspective—real-time data management instantly captures user data and corporate assets, stores them centrally, and delivers them wherever needed. In the event of endpoint loss, theft, or failure, these resources remain safe in the Remote Access servers located in a datacenter

·Easy, Low Cost Migration: Even a broad-based initiative adoption becomes a much simpler proposition, as all the work takes place in the Remote Access servers and a single operating system image can serve as a golden master for every user—rather than having a separate instance installed on each endpoint

·Centralized Identity and Profile Management: Anytime, anywhere, any device access is provided through centralized profile and identity management. When a user logs into a machine, their information, applications, and settings are delivered to the device. Employee transfers and departures can be managed in minutes, rather than days, as the appropriate resources are simply redirected to the employees who now need them

·Centralized Application and Patch Management: Server virtualization greatly reduces the high costs of maintaining and managing applications. An operating system or application can be patched once to serve users throughout the enterprise. If an application fails, instant server-side failover and live migration work to deliver a new application—with no disruption or even awareness on the part of the end user

·Centralized Backup and Recovery: Backup and recovery of all user data, settings, and applications becomes far faster, simpler, and more efficient, as all company assets remain in the Remote Access servers.

·Streamlined Support: A failed device can be replaced easily with no need to transfer user data, applications, or personalizations. Endpoint software conflicts are eliminated, as well as most routine end user problems.

Could Computing is a general term for anything that involves delivering hosted services over the Internet. These services are broadly divided into three categories: Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS).

Businesses are running all kinds of applications using cloud computing services these days, like CRM, accounting, and custom-built applications. Cloud-based applications can be up and running in a few days, which is unheard of with traditional business models. They cost less, because you don’t need to pay for all the people, products, and facilities to run them. And, it turns out they’re more scalable, more secure, and more reliable than most applications. Plus, upgrades are taken care of for you, so your applications get security and performance enhancements and new features—automatically.

The way you pay for cloud-based applications is different. It is more cash flow oriented. Forget about buying servers and software. When your applications run in the cloud, you don’t buy anything. It’s all rolled up into a predictable monthly subscription, so you only pay for what you actually use.

K18 Network Services Ltd. cloud service has three distinct characteristics that differentiate it from traditional hosting. It is sold on demand, typically by the month; it is elastic — a user can have as much or as little of a service as they want at any given time; and the service is fully managed by K18 Network Services Ltd. personnel while the consumer needs nothing but a personal computer and Internet access.

A cloud can be private or public. A public cloud sells services to anyone on the Internet.A private cloud is a proprietary network or a data center that supplies hosted services to a limited number of people. Private or public, the goal of cloud computing is to provide easy, scalable access to computing resources and IT services.

The flexibility of cloud computing, which takes the management and deployment headache from businesses, is definitely going to become appealing as the recession goes on

The bottom line: Cloud computing is a simple idea, but it can have a huge impact on your business.

In today’s business world, email is the most important communications tool that allows people to produce the best results. This greater reliance on e-mail has increased the number of messages sent and received, the variety of work getting done, and even the speed of business itself. employees look for rich, efficient access—to e-mail, calendars, attachments, contacts, and more—no matter where they are or what type of device they are using.

Delivering a messaging system in-house that addresses these needs, it must be balanced against other requirements such as security and cost. Enterprise security requirements have become more complex as the demand and use for e-mail has increased. Before you take the decision to manage a Microsoft Exchange Server in-house, you have to know that your IT department must contend with e-mail security threats that are wide ranging: continually evolving spam and viruses, noncompliance risks, the vulnerability of e-mail to interception and tampering, in addition to the potential harmful effects of natural and man-made disasters. While security is clearly a priority, IT is ever cognizant of the need to manage cost. Time, money, and resource constraints are a fact of life as IT is made accountable to do more with less.

However, building and managing an Exchange server environment is costly and complex. It requires a large investment in hardware, software, and technical expertise to install it, configure it, and manage it on a daily basis. Exchange hosting allows Small Medium Business’ to enjoy all the productivity and collaborative benefits of Exchange, without any of the frustrations of managing it in-house. Unfortunately, for many companies, the cost of implementing reliable e-mail and group collaboration services can be overwhelming.

K18 Network Services Ltd. SharePoint Foundation 2016 hosting is a cost-effective way to implement and manage a high-performance website, intranet and/or collaboration environment. The familiar, web-based interface and close integration with everyday tools (Microsoft Office and our hosted Exchange solution, etc.) makes SharePoint Foundation 2010 easy to use and easily deployable.
