The CLOUD is a word that's used regularly these days and yet its true meaning is often misunderstood. Cloud Computing is simply where your information, data and IP is stored and often operated outside of your physical building and in almost all cases somewhere physically unknown to you. This can present benefits and drawbacks depending on what you are storing and how it could impact your business.
By storing data in the CLOUD you have lost control of its security and protection, instead assigning that task to a provider which you clearly trust. Choosing the company that you trust is probably the most important decision in making the jump to Cloud hosting and should be given careful consideration.
Choosing GEN who were in fact the very first company to offer Cloud Services anywhere is a smart choice not only due to our long heritage and experience but because we tick all the boxes
- Your Data is stored in the UK and EU Securely.
- Your Data is always stored in more than one physical location.
- Your Data is protected by 24/7 network monitoring.
- Your Data is ALWAYS encrypted at rest with military grade protection.
- Our Staff will never have access to your data unless you specifically permit it.
So if you're considering venturing into the Cloud or you're already there and suffering performance issues or worse then contact us for pricing and confidence.
Docker containers wrap a piece of software in a complete filesystem that contains everything needed to run: code, runtime, system tools, system libraries – anything that can be installed on a server. This guarantees that the software will always run the same, regardless of its environment and now you can host your docker applications on GEN Hosted Servers either Virtual or Dedicated.
We provide both Private Containers and Managed Nodes from as little as £19/Month either publically, locally or via SAS. There are just so many possible options to a Docker provision that you should discuss your requirements with a Technical Consultant. Fill out the Contact Us Form and the right person will call you right back.
When it comes to cloud based storage there are so many options but few with the flexibility and security of GEN WebDrive. The WebDrive service is principally a hosted online storage repository from 1GB to 32TB (in increments) which provides the following enhanced features:
- High Grade TLS Transport Encryption
- High Grate Filesystem level Encryption
- Web Based Access from any browser to your customised Interface.
- WebDAV Access from any enabled Client
- RSYNC mirroring to any compatible rsync host (such as GEN Managed Storage Options).
- Syncing to Tablets and Mobile Devices via the App.
- Online Backup and secure storage.
As with most GEN hosted services, you can connect your hosted website directly to WebDrive to store form data, registration information, read user lists etc all within the secure framework. An common example of this would be a secure form on your website that captures registration data - you don't have to worry about sending that data via email you can simply dump it into your secure storage area in CSV/XLS/XML format for direct synchronisation to your corporate systems.
You may select all or just a few of the above features and have them enabled by user or by service. For additional security you may add GEN SAS as the access method to provide endpoint protection and authentication.
