Hardware Virtualization

Hardware virtualization is a method whereby one or more “virtual machines” are created to share the hardware resources of one physical computer. This effectively means that through a process of hardware virtualization several different operating systems can be run on the same computer. Hardware virtualization has been utilized by businesses for several years now to increase efficiency, and individual computer owners are also using it in increasing numbers as a way to improve the functionality of their computers.

Here are a few reasons you might want to consider virtualization of your computer systems.

  • Consolidate multiple servers to one Host Server
  • Migrate existing on premise servers to the cloud
  • Move workstations to the cloud
  • Run legacy applications on updated hardware

SharePoint is an effective and flexible content management system that can take your organization beyond basic file storage. Here are 9 reasons to consider using a SharePoint content management system for your organization.

1) Eliminate Collaborating on Documents Through Email

At its core, SharePoint is a document collaboration tool. SharePoint eliminates the messiness of the back-and-forth emailing of documents and other files. Store and share the file from a SharePoint document library and all stakeholders can add their content and provide feedback on the draft simultaneously.

2) SharePoint Content Management Removes the Need for Paper

SharePoint supports the paperless office. A paperless office increases productivity by digitally storing documents with searchable metadata. This makes for easy search, retrieval, sharing, and editing of all the documents in your content library.

3) Alert!

You can set up alerts so any time a document, list, or library has been altered you’re in the know.

4) Developing Views for Better Content Discovery

Views are shareable snapshots of related documents. Quickly find all the documents for a specific project, documents that require review and approval or new uploads by colleagues. With the appropriate metadata tagging, SharePoint Views provide users with the right information for the task at hand.

5) Flexible Folders

Traditional file shares offer only one option for organizing large collections of documents: folders. Folders are a familiar, comfortable experience but can grow into deep hierarchies of nested subfolders over time. In this standard (but not optimal) content management system users must traverse up and down the folder hierarchy to find documents, which can be frustrating. With SharePoint, your team can use a combination of folder hierarchy and metadata fields to organize and tag documents. This allows you to create many different views and hierarchies of the same documents, organizing by document category, key dates, authors, keywords, etc. as meets your needs.

6) Easy to Follow Version Control

Document version history contains information about when the item or file was changed, who changed it, and information about what was changed. SharePoint automatically captures versions of your content as it changes over time. Authors can view and restore previous versions to recover from unexpected changes.

7) Securing Content and Managing Document Life Cycle

In SharePoint, user roles and permissions can be configured as globally and granularly needed. Documents are automatically secured during upload based on the rules for the target library or folder. Employee handbooks and benefits flyers can be visible to all users while sales projections can be secured to a few managers and executives.

8) Storing Business Critical Documents

SharePoint is the perfect tool for storing, managing, and organizing business critical documents. Documents stored in SharePoint are secure, protected from deletion and overwriting and can be tagged with metadata and retention policies allowing users to find the right content at the right time. Whether you need to find the contract that’s up for renewal, the financial report your auditor has requested or the project specs your customer needs to approve, SharePoint has the tools to help you store, protect and retrieve the content.

9) SharePoint Content Management Control

Nearly all the content management features in SharePoint can be customized to reflect the content management needs of your organization. With the right governance plan and SharePoint best practices in place, you can create a deployment of SharePoint that makes document management a business asset, not a business headache.

Recovery Testing

Testing server backups is essential, but it can be time consuming, and therefore too often neglected. AMS Technology Backup Recovery Testing delivers regular, automated test recoveries of your most critical servers.

Simply enroll your servers in a recovery test plan, and we will automatically spin up a test VM in the cloud, restore the server from your most recent backup, take a screenshot, and delete the VM. Recovery verification reports, including the screenshot and details about recovery time, will be ready and waiting for you.

Optimized for Fast Data Transfer

Cloud services can offer incredible convenience—from lower (or eliminated) hardware costs to reduced maintenance. However, many backup providers simply tack on a public cloud to a legacy solution, which can make cloud-based backups slow to a crawl. AMS Technology Cloud Backup was built for the cloud from day one and designed for rapid transfers to and from our global, private cloud over the WAN.

{We have used AMS for over 5 years. When we started with them our company was only 8 employees and maybe a couple work stations. Now we have over 40 employees and 15 work stations. What makes AMS stand out over other companies is that their customer service and response time is incredible. It would be hard to find a better company to work with that allows us to do what we do best and they take care of the rest. Wish their were more stars available.{
