Web hosting is a fundamental service for any business. Choosing a web host may not be a glamorous decision for the boss, but it is an important one. As such, SIO stands at the ready to make a proper assessment of business needs, implement any technical extras, and then get you up and running so that you can return to issues that impact your company's sale of products and/or services on a more direct level.
The first reason is that we might just keep you out of trouble. Medical, financial, and other industries are subject to various regulatory requirements, and retention backups are typically required.
And when they aren't mandatory, they're still a very good idea because some data loss is more serious than others. Consider the consequences of your medical or financial information just going "Poof!" one day. You get the idea.

While some tech areas are essentially treading water, 3D printing is an industry that is still advancing by leaps and bounds. Monitoring the progress is at times astounding, and participating in the process (as we do here at storeitoffsite) is positively invigorating.
Here in central KY, we service a number of businesses in a variety of ways. Many of them take advantage of multiple service packages, combined and tailored to fit their individual needs. That's one of the advantages of working with us. We can sit down with you, face-to-face, and come away with a customized plan to suit your particular business needs.
You just can't get that from out-of-the-box offerings, and you certainly don't get the same level of service accompanying it. In other words, you can trust our moxie and skip the Mozy.
Okay, we're going to level with you. You have to back up your data, and we're going to tell you some of the reasons why.
First of all, you already know why. It's your data, and you don't want to lose it. Whether it's just a few files or your entire business, it's worth taking the time to make sure it's safe.
Second, you need to admit the fact that all computers are living on borrowed time and eventually will fail. Even the best hard drives in the world are temporary, and backing up files is your protection for when the inevitable happens.
Data needs to be available in more than one place. We're a mobile workforce, and we expect the work we conduct on our phones and tablets to be integrated easily into our other devices back at the office.
A storage area network (or SAN, which rhymes with Stan) is a dedicated, high-speed network that transfers and provides access to block data and connects through servers. A SAN is a great enhancement to a company's storage capacity, and it handles data storage, availability, and even replication.
Our customers choose a SAN solution for various reasons, including the need to have better overall data storage. Maximizing data's availability, efficiency, and performance allows business operations to flow better and can save time and money over the long term.
Data accessibility and security are a big deal. As a business owner, the data you collect must be protected from all sorts of possible problems and attacks. Whether or not your core business revolves around the digital data you collect, it's important to keep it safe from criminals and available to your workforce.
One way to make sure your data remains available at all times is to back it up well, often, and in a systematically organized manner. The difference between recovering data when properly backed up versus other scenarios cannot be overstated.
Recently, consumers have begun to value the ability to obtain locally certain goods and services that they rely on at work, at home, or at play. They eat more local food, support more locally-owned businesses, and pay attention to where their products are made.
Quick, here's a brief Q&A for you.

Sorry, that one was for the robots in our audience. Can I see by a show of hands how many robots we have here ... oh, never mind. That's just ridiculous.
But what is important is knowing that, as a business owner, you don't have to front the cost of an entire IT department to take advantage of first-class IT dependability, power, and scalability.
Store It Offsite is hands down the best IT support services group in Lexington. A few years ago, my company was looking to overhaul its current backup system. While I looked at various online services, the group that stood out the most to me was Store It Offsite. Their pricing structure is very competitive, but being local took them over the top for me. Three years down the road now after making the decision to use Store It Offsite, I could not be happier with my decision to do so. Their service has been second to none, support is prompt and on task, and customer service is impeccable. Our rep is outstanding at listening to what a client's needs are, putting together cost effective proposals, and provide a quality of service beyond what other IT support firms can do. The bottom line is this, if you need cloud server services, off site data backup, or simply hardware supply, give Store It Offsite an opportunity to earn your business. Contact Leslie and setup an introductory meeting. I promise, you and your company will not be disappointed.
