IT Services at CAS offers professional migration services to move your organisation into the cloud. Whether you want to part the way there by moving just your data or whether you want to go all the way and migrate files, emails etc to the cloud we can provide you a great value quote. When you are thinking about moving to the cloud and using Office 365 it’s vital that whoever you partner with has the experience and know-how to complete this task for you without issue. In a process like this it’s very easy to leave yourself without emails for a period of time and potentially lose data if the process isn’t followed correctly.
Here at IT Services at CAS we follow a rigorous process which has been tried and tested on our own systems to ensure you can just leave it in our capable hands.
Partnering with world class Backup solutions provider Acronis, IT Services at CAS offers a backup solution that can backup all cloud stored files and emails within Office 365. Whilst the cloud is a very secure environment and Microsoft Office 365 offers various recycle bin type utilities to get hold of mistakenly removed data it is still recommended to have a backup solution in place to protect your data in the cloud. The Acronis 365 backup service is an excellent way of doing this.
Price – £4.75 per month per user
