By now, you probably have a good understanding of “the cloud.” But, just to refresh your memory, the cloud is an offsite server that houses your company data. You access your data by connecting to these servers over the internet. Instead of purchasing an expensive piece of equipment you are responsible for maintaining at your site, you rent space in a datacenter. The Speros Cloud enables you to have convenient access to all of your business’ data. That’s not the only advantage, read on to discover if cloud computing is right for your business.
The Speros Cloud offers greater expandability in comparison to onsite servers. The cloud is able to expand and grow simultaneously with your business. As your business grows larger, you will be able to expand your storage, bandwidth, memory, and redundancy without having to purchase new server equipment.
Data replication is quickly becoming the next big thing in the disaster recovery industry. You can have instant copies of your data created in real-time on a minute to minute basis. An image-based solution only has backups of your files from the last time a backup was performed. The Speros Cloud servers are in a fully replicated state, which means your data is replicated on multiple servers and your downtime will be measured in minutes instead of hours.
Unified Threat Management with Advanced Threat Protection
The cloud often gets a bad rap for not being secure, but the Speros Cloud is able to deliver state of the art Advanced Threat Protection. Advanced Threat Protection mitigates and safeguards against emerging threats that are not currently known. It also expands security. This ensures continued data compliance with all financial and legal standards. You can rest easy knowing your data is safe.
Speaking of security, the Speros Cloud meets all General Data Protection Regulation guidelines. Our data centers run at the SOC 1 and 2 tier reporting. SOC reports are System and Organization Control Reports on controls at a service organization. Level 1 focuses on financial reporting and level 2 is non-financial reporting, such as security, availability, confidentiality, etc. The Speros Cloud is also HIPAA, HITRUST CSF, PCI DSS, and ROC compliant. No matter what service your business provides, you can be assured you will be in full compliance with the Speros Cloud.
Data Center Security
The Speros Cloud data centers are protected by the latest next-generation firewalls, Intrusion Detection and response systems, and Biometric scanners with secure two-phase access for all personnel. Our data centers are protected 24/7, every day of the year along with full dedicated redundancy for all services and hardware.
Hardware Refresh Cycles
Data Center hardware refresh cycles occur once every 3 years to ensure the latest hardware and standards are met. When you store your data in the Speros Cloud, you don’t have to worry about purchasing new servers or equipment, and all hardware is redundant to ensure continued service reliability.
Having a business located in Savannah comes with the risk of natural disasters, especially hurricanes. The Speros Cloud servers operate outside a 90-mile radius from Savannah.
