Reliability in the Cloud   no comments

Cloud computing is relatively new for most business users. As we have begun talking to our clients about the possibilities of the cloud for their businesses, we’ve found many of them are concerned about the safety of their data. Regardless of the actual safety of having a server in your office (and we know that it’s not very safe at all considering the possibility of theft, disaster or hardware failure) simply having the information physically close makes people feel safe. It’s a perceived security, but it’s a powerful perception.

The truth is, information in the cloud is far more secure than information in the office. While “the cloud” makes it sound like the information is floating around somewhere, subject to the whims of the Internet, in reality the information is stored in a physical server inside a secure datacenter. Servers in datacenters (if they are anything like ours) are protected by physical boundaries like thick walls and security cameras and biometrics. They are also protected by virtual boundaries like firewalls and passwords. Then, to top it off, they are protected by backups, so you can restore any lost data immediately. In the TurnKey Cloud, backups are encrypted, adding yet another level of security. You can even completely restore your entire operating system keeping all of your stored settings intact. You can control your entire account remotely, including remote reboots.

In the end, if you’re concerned about the security of your data, cloud hosting is the best possible option. While it may seem new and dangerous, it is designed with businesses in mind—providing the kind of security and accessibility that has never been available before. In addition to all that, it’s cheaper and more efficient than housing your own infrastructure in-house. At TurnKey, we see this as a no-brainer.

Why Your Business Needs Network Attached Storage   no comments

Posted at Aug 25, 2010 @ 10:42am News

This week, we released a new product called TurnKey Vault NAS (Network Attached Storage). The TurnKey Vault NAS is a cloud-based backup service that can be mounted as a local hard drive on your computer for easy (and extremely secure) drag-and-drop backups. NAS services have been needed for a long time now, especially as businesses have become more and more remote. People need to be able to share files on the go. Since almost all of our data has gone digital, the need for secure backups is greater than it has ever been. Cloud NAS services make file sharing and secure remote backups possible, but they have traditionally been inaccessible to regular business owners who may not know the technical ins and outs of server management. That is why we are so excited to be able to offer a simple, easy-to-use Network Attached Storage service direct to you from the TurnKey Cloud.

TurnKey Vault NAS Features

More and more businesses rely on cloud services every day, but not all cloud services are created equal. TurnKey NAS is universally accessible (via FTP, SCP, SFTP, Rsync, NFS or Samba connections) and cross platform (PC, MAC, Linux and more). TurnKey NAS is also compatible with every backup software package that supports direct-to-disk backups. It’s perfect for secure backups and file sharing.

Protect Your Business from Catastrophic Loss

The biggest fear for every business owner is a complete server meltdown resulting in catastrophic loss. Can your business afford to lose all of your data? Ours can’t. Easy drag-and-drop backups are now possible with TurnKey NAS, and we are advising all of our clients to take advantage of the service. Backing up directly from your desktop is the easiest and fastest way to make consistent copies of the files you use (and update) most. Make backups as you go, as you need them, and never lose another day’s work again.

Share Files From Anywhere

With TurnKey NAS, you and your colleagues can access files on-the-go, from any smart device, from anywhere in the world. Forgot your presentation? No problem. Lost a disk? Just log-in and download. Not only is this a critical service for any business, it is a critical service for you, personally. Save yourself embarrassment, extra work and stress. Streamline your business data, and protect your most valuable business asset: your hard work.
