Cloud Servers

What are cloud servers?

Cloud Servers allow you to centralise all your business data and applications into a single cloud server environment. By utilising our Remote Desktop services on a cloud server, you can allow staff to access their desktop, data and applications from anywhere at any time. Cloud servers eliminate the need for in-house server equipment and network infrastructure, so you save on IT service costs and take care of critical offsite data protection all at the same time.

Remote Desktop Cloud Servers can turn your old outdated PC into a powerful remote computing environment providing access to all the latest Microsoft® Office software and business applications - all you need is a stable internet connection. Cloud servers are fully scalable so the possibilites are up to you!

Where will my data be located?

One of the myths about Cloud Computing is that you never know truly where your data is being stored. Simplifying IT has invested in priority floor space in two of the best enterprise-class Internet Data Centre Facilities (IDC) located in Western Australia; Vocus PerthIX located on William Street in Perth CBD, and Datacom MetroIX located in the Perth metro district.

Our CBD data center is an excellent location for our colocation and virtualisation services, whilst our second data center, approximately 15 kilometers from the CBD, provides an excellent environment for redundant infrastructure services. Due to it's isolation, Perth has been regarded as one of the best locations for data centers in the world!
