Remote Working

Remote working will boost your productivity

But there are significant challenges for your IT and communications infrastructure to consider

Benefits of remote working

The advent of improved IT and communications has enabled staff to work from outside the office, whether from home or on the move. The benefits of remote working such as remote access to desktops, email and other business applications present an excellent opportunity to boost business productivity and create a more flexible and dynamic workforce. However it can also pose a significant challenge to your existing IT and communications infrastructure.

 

Are you ready for remote working?

For SMEs that haven’t got the right IT and communications setup it can cause issues such as loss of productivity through not being able to get access or security issues of accessing data in an unsecure environment. Larger businesses with disparate teams spread across many different locations can add a layer of complexity and place strain on existing IT architecture. Ensuring information is readily accessible in order to enable teams to collaborate and share content when they need to, requires far more than the traditional tools of email and telephone.

Utilise the cloud

Whether working from home, on the move or from a client site, your aim should be to create a scalable solution that allows the entire workforce to connect with one another whenever necessary and where possible benefit from the flexibility of cloud-based solutions.

Keep data safe

As you look to mobilise your workforce, take the time to consider the increasing risks associated with 'anywhere' access to sensitive documents. Investing in cloud data encryption or secure Electronic Information Management system can pay dividends.

At a glance:

The technology and security challenges of having remote access to your work network can cause organisations to be wary of remote working but EBC Group can help you design a solution that suit your requirements, budget and business needs. 

We offer a range of remote working solutions which range from hosted services to more permanent network and infrastructure solutions:

  • Virtual Private Network (VPN)
  • Hosted Desktop
  • Terminal Server for thin clients
  • Private or Hybrid Cloud

Multi-site Networking Section

Multi-site Networking

Offices at different locations operating like a single network

Reduce costs and increase productivity with a multi-site solution

For organisations with multiple sites and offices located in different geographies keeping your workforce, applications and data connected without the right technology can be expensive and inefficient and confusing.

We provide innovative multi-site network solutions that enable flexible working practice and enhanced performance with staff at different locations able to work as though they are based in the same location.

For multi-site businesses, we are regularly asked to provide a solution to connect those sites and enable the sharing of data, documents and applications. 

Multi-Site networking can be achieved by connecting multiple locations to make a Private Wide Area Network (PWAN). Your systems will operate as if they are all operating on the same local network with your workforce having access to all the shared resources that they need for their role, no matter where they are based geographically.

Having a central location means you spend less on hardware, licences, and systems, which may have been at each office. Making calls between different offices is also free, which can significantly reduce costs.

Multi-site networking makes it possible to combine all those offices onto one unified network, enabling you to synchronise all of your business systems and reduce cost. Other services such as backup and disaster recovery can also be consolidated.

Virtualisation Section

Virtualisation

Improve IT flexibility & lower costs

Improve availability by consolidating your servers on to a virtual infrastructure

What is server virtualisation?

Server virtualisation consolidates your physical server infrastructure into a streamlined virtual environment, by:

  • Deploying 2 or more high capacity servers to house your current physical servers as Virtual Servers
  • Minimising the amount of physical hardware used
  • Migrating your physical server environment to virtual servers P2V
  • Creating redundancy across your new virtual hosts
  • Live migration features and advanced DR capabilities

 

Why should I choose virtualisation?

Many organisations are choosing server virtualisation as a way of reducing the total cost of ownership and combat the rising costs in server hardware maintenance and power consumption. Virtualisation will enable an organisation to:

  • Reduce the number of servers required to support computing needs
  • Reduce hardware support costs
  • Reduce hardware cost for disaster recovery
  • Reduce the cost of IT operations
  • Reduced power and cooling costs
  • Deploying a server takes minutes rather than days
  • Eliminate business unplanned downtime

Virtulisation at a glance:

  • Instant Recovery: Restore an entire machine in minutes 
  • Agentless: No agents are required
  • Built-in deduplication and compression
  • On demand sandbox
  • Universal file level recover
