Our Cloud Services Toolkit is a suite of pre-integrated private label partner hosted Microsoft services, designed for Channel resellers to transition their business offerings and target SMMEs, Education, Enterprise and Government customers with integrated on premise and cloud services.
Collaborative components of this shared multi-tenant solution include Exchange 2010, SharePoint Enterprise 2010, and Lync Enterprise 2010. It is the first and only African suite delivered via two independent data centres across two independent ISPs. Pre-integrated into major Tier 1 VPNs, connectivity has been optimised for African bandwidth conditions and includes multi-factor authentication and encryption at ingress, at rest and on egress. Email and SharePoint Migration suites provide non-disruptive and managed migrations particularly in competitive displacements. All components support directory integration to on-premise Active Directory and support automatic cloud service provision based on group membership. The same authentication is used to deliver a hosted enterprise alternative cloud storage solution to Microsoft SkyDrive with encrypted local synchronisation as well as an reseller specific app store with built in software asset management capabilities.
Infrastructure components are based on Windows Server 2012, SQL 2012 and HyperV-3 and include Shared Website Hosting with orchestrated site builders, Shared and Dedicated Virtual Server Hosting, Managed Services and business continuity. Integration to customer on premise networks is facilitated via the aforementioned VPNs allowing unified management of on-premise and cloud workloads via System Centre 2012. Customers can choose between raw infrastructure as a service or a fully managed solution leveraging Service Manager, Orchestrator, Configuration Manager and Operations Manager. Our cloud based Flowgear Integration platform built on Microsoft Azure provides encrypted inter-application integration and has native support for over 100 API’s and endpoints including Microsoft Dynamics and Microsoft Office.
