Safeguard your business

Know that when downtime occurs from an unexpected event or natural disaster, your data is safe and you can get your business back up and running in minutes. You can also use centralised IT management to make sure systems are up to date, and control who has access to your documents.

Reduce costs

Give employees exactly as much storage as they need, when they need it and scale storage up and down quickly—all without paying a fortune for expensive storage solutions.

Consolidate applications onto fewer servers to save on hardware costs and get more from your investment in IT. Virtualization is built into Windows Server 2012 R2 at no additional cost.

Business anywhere

Your teams can work more productively with secure mobile access to documents hosted on-premises or in the cloud. Enable mobile workers to connect from virtually any location or device while providing peace of mind that corporate data remains on the server.

Windows Server 2003 support is ending

Microsoft will end support for Windows Server 2003 on 14th July 2015, this means Microsoft will no longer be providing security updates or technical support. To prevent possible disruption and security risks we strongly recommend migrating your software. Upgrading to Windows Server 2012 means your business can take advantage of new features such as virtualisation and disaster recovery, saving your business money and giving you peace of mind.
