Cloud Solutions

Journey to the Cloud

Ripple Technology Solutions offer a broad range of Hosted IT Solutions, from the all-encompassing small and mid-sized business solution, Cloud IT, to the delivery of Dedicated Servers and fully Managed Hosting.

Our Cloud hosting solution delivers a highly scaleable and flexible hosted infrastructure. Full end-to-end delivery, hosting and support of your complete infrastructure, including office and 3rd party applications delivered over the internet. Includes email, remote access, disaster recovery, virtual desktops and, of course, full support with our Office 365 packages.

We’ve already helped businesses in Leeds and throughout the UK move some or all their services to the Cloud.

Microsoft 365

Office is a cloud-based service hosted by Microsoft. It brings together the power of Office with business class email, document sharing, instant messaging and video conferencing to give you access from anywhere – from PCs to smartphones and tablets.

We have completed a large number of simple Microsoft 365 setups to large Microsoft Exchange Migrations involving 300+ users, implementing services like single sign on and Active Directory synchronisation.

Microsoft Azure

Azure is Microsoft’s Cloud platform and infrastructure for building, deploying and managing applications. It provides PAAS and IAAS and also supports different programming languages, tools and frameworks.

We are highly experienced in deploying Microsoft Azure platforms – either implementing hybrid solutions or fully migrating all servers, applications and services to the Cloud we can help ensure embracing Cloud technology works for you.

Cloud Backup

One of the biggest issues we come across is clients struggling to find a stable solution for ensuring critical data is secure and safe should disaster strike. A Cloud backup solution maybe the perfect choice to either coexist with an existing internal backup solution or become the only backup.

Our Cloud backup solution is simple to use and uses military grade encryption to ensure the data is safe.

Virtualisation

VMware and Microsoft Virtualisation

Ripple Technology Solutions can help clients virtualise server and storage estates to reduce cost and increase agility. Using a structured methodology, we can advise organisations on the most suitable solution to virtualise their infrastructure.

Ripple can help clients with Infrastructure Virtualisation across many technologies. Using our selection methodology, we can advise clients on the most suitable solution to virtualise their infrastructure.

Ripple have delivered many complex virtualisation projects and has the knowledge and best practice skills in defining and deploying a virtualised environment. From a single host server to multi host clusters with fibre linked DR site solutions we can help your business.

Understanding the pitfalls of this transition, the operational procedures that are required and carrying out a detailed proof of concept are all areas of experience which Ripple is able to share.

We are also able to advise on the operational aspects of managing and securing virtualised environments and ensure integration within your existing infrastructure.

  • Improved asset utilisation

    Most organisations have a significant proportion of their systems running with utilisation under 10 per cent. Through virtualisation, the utilisation of physical assets is typically improved to 60-70 per cent, or more.

  • Reduced costs

    In addition to maximising use of the existing estate, and reducing the need to purchase more resources, virtualised environments also reduce operational costs by reducing maintenance spending and datacenter floor space.

  • Increased responsiveness

    The elapsed time from deciding what new infrastructure is required, from procurement to implementation, typically takes weeks in major organisations. With a virtualised infrastructure, this time can be reduced to hours or even minutes.

  • Simplified management

    Using a virtual infrastructure, IT managers can improve service levels as there is a single point of control for managing virtual machines and monitoring host servers. Providing repeatable automated processes can help keep support time minimal.

Mimecast Solutions

Mimecast provides market leading email security and management tools to keep organisations safe.  Ripple Solutions are proud to be a Mimecast MSP, deploying and managing services for clients throughout the UK.  Our Service Desk and Field Engineers are all experienced and trained to support Mimecast deployments.

Mimecast Email Security

Email security is a critical defense against hackers seeking to capture and exploit valuable corporate information and disrupt business operations.

The Mimecast advanced cloud security platform provides flexible and granular email security controls and configuration capabilities, with the benefit of cloud resilience and scale, to deliver comprehensive inbound email security. The same integrated platform ensures privacy and secrecy of sensitive or confidential information in email. Protecting it in transit and preventing unauthorized leakage.

Mailbox Continuity

Email continuity is vital to protecting communication, workflows, and access to business information. Mimecast Mailbox Continuity cuts the cost and complexity of eliminating the impact of primary on-premises or cloud email system downtime for employees, providing uninterrupted access to live and historic email and calendar information from the Mimecast Cloud.

Integration with Microsoft Outlook, a native app for Mac users and a full suite of mobile apps provide seamless access for optimum productivity. Protecting against system failure, natural disasters, the impact of planned maintenance and the risk inherent in system upgrades and migrations has never been simpler.

Mimecast Enterprise Information Archiving

Growing compliance and legal requirements are driving the need for improved retention and discovery, but the fragmentation of email, file and instant messaging data diminishes its value, creates data integrity risk and increases costs. The Mimecast Enterprise Information Archive simplifies information retention, in the cloud, to mitigate information governance, e-discovery, litigation and compliance risks.

single, secure, tampered-resistant cloud archive retains data perpetually with strong chains of custody, and delivers fast and reliable discovery. Employees have rapid access to their complete archive to boost productivity, with comprehensive search from the desktop and mobile apps. Live and rapidly ingested legacy data is stored in geographically defined regions and coupled with 100% service availability and search SLAs to provide confidence that critical information can always be accessed on demand, according to legal and employee needs.
