Cloud Computing Services For Melbourne And Perth

How secure is your network? We all like to think everything is fine, but how sure are you? Unless you work in IT, you probably will not know. No one wants to be hacked into and have a virus in come and delete or corrupt all of your company’s hard work. It took years and years to build, and it could be gone in a very short time. That’s something we would not wish upon anyone.

This is why we ensure that BizQuip provides advanced cloud computing services for businesses in both Melbourne and Perth. These are major hubs on the very opposite ends of the country, and we are proud that our reach extends that far. In this day and age of the internet, the huge physical distance between these two distant cities of Australia is irrelevant.

What is cloud computing

As its name suggests, cloud computing is available everywhere, just like those white, fluffy-looking things in the sky. Unlike physical hard drives that only contain storage on that particular drive, this allows you to store and access data and programs on the internet. If you do all of your work on computers, but are unable to come into the office and use the desktop there, then you can continue working from another desktop anywhere at anytime. How amazing is that!

We are revolutionizing cloud computing services in Melbourne and Perth with our state of the art BizCloud data centres.

The data centres house up to 70 racks at an average density of 6kw each while any individual rack can easily power and cool up to 30kw.

Veeam backup solutions for cloud computing

These are specifically designed for use in virtual environments to allow for fast backup and recovery. It is ideal to be using VMware or Hyper-V for this. This will protect your virtual infrastructure with top rate features, including Instant VM Recovery, Instant File-Level Recovery, 2-in-1: backup and replication, built-in de-duplication, centralized management and much more.

Your data will be stored on BizCloud Storage. If things go wrong, your backups can be restored into the BizCloud VMware VPS platform at any time. However, this could take around 4 hours or more depending on how the amount of data involved. Recovery will not be as fast as it would be on the Veeam Cloud Replication.

Your Veeam Cloud Backup can be licensed and deployed in 2 ways:

1: You can bring your own Veeam that includes the data you stored on the BizCloud Cloud Storage.

2: Veeam can be rented on a monthly basis.

Our backup software is very cost effective and has a high performance rate where your data will be recovered merely hours later.

ShadowProtect backup solutions

Another option we have available for our Perth and Melbourne clients is ShadowProtect. It allows for fast, yet dependable Server Backup, Data Protection, Disaster Recovery and Systems Migration for Windows Servers.

Cloud Security on the BizCloud Platform

Our cloud computing services in Melbourne and Perth come with many security layers to provide maximum protection from unwanted intrusion of your confidential data. The following features are included:

Firewalls

Melbourne and Perth businesses rely on the security firewalls BizQuip provide. These are designed to allow or deny network transmissions. Networks are secured by both hardware Juniper SRX firewall/security devices and hardened Linux virtual Firewall Appliances.

Active Intrusion Detection System (IDS)

BizQuip are leading the pack with our cloud computing services throughout Melbourne and Perth. This is because our BizCloud uses an Active IDS to observe and secure networks and systems for dangerous activity, and will block and combat it. Although most network providers will notify if there is an issue, usually by then it may be too late to do anything. But with an Active IDS, the system will be checking for suspicious activity, and then block and eliminate it.

Virtual Local Area Network (VLAN)

VLANs can go through multiple switches and communications to connect to remote areas. These are great for dividing up network resources so multiple customers can use these physical resources at once. VLANs have the same capabilities as a Local Area Network (LAN), but they are configured and run ‘in memory’ within the networking and communications equipment (switches and routers).

Network Segmentation

Our cloud computing services in Perth and Melbourne divides the network into multiple VLANs to keep your data separate from other networks from affecting your network. Network traffic such as SAN storage, internet, management, client data and any other traffic types completely separated from one another through this division.

Back End Hardware Management

The back end hardware that controls the main functions of physical servers, storage and networking hardware equipment is connected to other physical networks. This is done so security will be guaranteed and you will have complete control of the entire platform, regardless of external communications.

Monitoring

Our cloud computing services constantly monitor the BizCloud systems of our Melbourne and Perth clients. These systems are looked over every minute of every day by multiple alerting and notification systems to keep on top of any issues before they escalate and ruin everything.
