Ever asked what if my computers are down?

Answering this question in 1999 was a totally different question to today. Back then there was mass panic about the Millenium bug and how it was thought to be about to destroy all computers.

If we fast forward to today there are multiple devices and even then we often have another backup device. Our Smartphones are higher spec than machines at the turn of the Millenium too.

Can we say the same in the office?

If our office computers were down there is more to consider than if it was just a personal computer.

Even though you will likely have a Smartphone, what if you were hit with a Cyber Attack at work?

Imagine the infection spread to all the devices plugged into your network?

Have you considered any of the following:

  • How long could you cope with downtime while still upholding staff salary?

  • Could you still conduct business?

  • Could you still communicate with colleagues and customers?

Questions like these need to be answered,

even for a short period of time what financial impact would that mean to you?

Before starting Hamilton Systems Solutions I worked for a company that had an on-site server,

Unfortunately, I wasn’t involved in their infrastructure setup and had to deal with it as is.

The building suffered a power outage due to works in the area,

they had managed to get certain banks of desks on a generator but not all.

We had to provide mobile hotspots and laptops to be able to continue working,

this was only possible while the generator was available, this only lasted around 2 hours.

After this, they had to shut down and just wait!

Now, this was a holiday company where £80K holidays weren’t out of the question.

If they had embraced the Cloud fully this would have been completely avoidable.

This is exactly how we like to set up clients,

and coupled with our Cygnatech Backup service an exact copy of their machine can be spun up in the Cloud.

Our email wasn’t performing very well so we asked Hamilton Systems to take a look & Carl proposed to migrate us to MS Exchange.

Carl was very helpful throughout & the migration went very well.

He was on hand to sort out any teething issues, taking calls early morning & into the night, to ensure we were up & running smoothly.

Would recommend for knowledge, attention to detail & great customer service.”
