Security is driven by infrastructure and sustained by attention to detail. Clouds, applications, storage, bandwidth – all contribute to your attack surface area, and none of this is impenetrable. DDC believes in protection, but also in survivability. DDC can provide intelligence and guidance when you are faced with those security problems whether they are in house or the cloud or somewhere in between.
The “Cloud” has an Achilles Heel. It’s bandwidth. If you or your team are offline, nothing works. DDC has been building “Networks that work” since 1991. Whether you have 10 locations or 1,000 mobile workers or even both, we speak SD-WAN, VPN, Firewall, Routing and Remote Access fluently.
Cloud based voice coupled with cellular services can be a real game changer for the small business. It’s astoundingly easy to replace that recalcitrant Toshiba or NEC multi-line behemoth in the closet with a PBX that is flexible, cost effective and interfaces with your increasingly mobile and remote workforce.
We’re talking about legacy, line of business applications that cost tens to hundreds of thousands of dollars that you cannot afford to replace. The hardware is old; the support staff are about to retire, and you are faced with a mountain of change management headache. DDC specializes in nurturing these aging applications and keeping them viable well past their EOL announcements.
Though the cloud storage market has matured, and there are several solid offerings out there, we still prefer to own and manage our unstructured data – the beautiful mess of folders that it is. DDC’s “DuraDisk” storage platform was built on the Solaris ZFS platform in 2005, initially to handle data center replication. Over the years, the platform has developed all of the standard “cloud” features and is available as a server appliance. It also runs very well in the cloud – we prefer Joyent. If you want reliable, replicable, inexpensive and Internet accessible storage for primary or backup purposes, we have the answer.
E-mail is the top mission critical application for business (actually everyone). There are few IT services that touch on so many technology resources and expectations. It’s a file system. It’s a diary. It’s an advertising tool. It’s an enormous liability. Nothing will make your helpdesk light up faster than delays or outages in your e-mail system; not to mention the liability and exposure from its misuse or neglect. DDC has been delivering high availability e-mail solutions since 1995. We know what it takes to protect your business reputation and keep your messages flowing.
