Efficiency Expert: Data Backup and Disaster Recovery

November 8th, 2011 No comments

Performing regular data backups is a mundane but essential job that is often not appreciated until the inevitable happens – the loss of your business’ critical data. This can be caused by many occurrences – hardware failure, data corruption due to a malware infection or virus, physical damage to your place of business such as fire or storm damage, theft or vandalism, or simply an innocent employee error. The task is becoming ever more difficult due to exponential data growth, which leading IT research and advisory firm Gartner, Inc. estimates to be about 45% annually. It is challenging to find backup and disaster recovery solutions that are both efficient and cost-effective as the amount of your critical data continues to grow.

Data backup and disaster recovery planning are best practices for every business, regardless of size. Small Business Technology Solutions can provide you with a simple, reliable, affordable AUTOMATED backup system that integrates both on-site backup for situations where local data recovery is feasible and cloud-based off-site backup in the event of the complete loss of data. Backups can include email messages, contact lists, files, databases, or even entire volumes. Data is encrypted during transmission to the cloud and is immediately available for remote recovery. Three copies of the data are maintained at separate locations – one locally at your place of business and two others in geographically separate data centers. All backups are managed and monitored by professionals and require little effort or expertise on your part.

Contact Small Business Technology Solutions today for a review of your data backup needs. For just a reasonable monthly fee, you can have this little slice of heaven and rest easier knowing your data can be restored if and when the need arises.

 

Meraki MR16 Dual Radio 802.11n Access Point

October 11th, 2011 No comments

Merak MR 16 Access Point

The Meraki MR16 is an enterprise class, dual-concurrent 802.11n access point designed for high-density deployments in large offices, schools, hospitals, hotels and large retail stores.  The MR16 features dual-concurrent, dual-band operation and advanced 802.11n technologies such as MIMO and beam forming, delivering the high throughput and reliable coverage required by the most demanding business applications like voice and video.

The MR16 is monitored 24×7 and managed through the Meraki Enterprise Cloud Controller, with an intuitive browser-based interface that delivers real-time alerts if your network encounters problems. Remote diagnostics tools enable real-time troubleshooting over the web, meaning multi-site, distributed networks can be managed remotely.  The MR16’s firmware is always kept up to date from the cloud.  New features, bug fixes, and enhancements are delivered seamlessly over the web, so you never have to manually download software updates or worry about missing security patches.  And it self heals, responding automatically to switch failures and other errors.

The MR16 features integrated, easy-to-use security technologies to provide secure connectivity for employees and guests alike.  Advanced security features provide wire-like security while still being easy to configure.  One-click guest isolation provides secure, Internet-only access for visitors.  The policy firewall (Identity Policy Manager) enables group-based, granular access policy control.

Despite its incredible  power  and feature set, the MR16 is  the lowest profile 802.11n access point available – at just one inch thick, it blends seamlessly into any environment.  In addition to looking great, the MR16 is earth friendly: we’ve eliminated excess packaging and documentation, and 90% of the access point materials are recyclable.  A maximum power draw of only 10.5 watts and a cloud-hosted, multi-tenant controller mean that pollution, material utilization and your electric bill are kept to a minimum.

Contact Small Business Technology Solutions, Inc., your Meraki Authorized Reseller during October to obtain a special 30% discount on the MR16 and all other Meraki products.  This offer is good on Meraki products only and expires on October 31, 2011.
