      Overburdened Business Owners Should Consider Managed IT

      For instance, an owner needs to keep their finger on their organization’s budgetary pulse so they can be sure that cash is flowing as it should be--not just in, through invoices and bills, but also out, through payroll and operative costs. These matters must all be tracked to ensure that the business’ finances are all in order. It wouldn’t be very helpful if a business’ power was shut off, which is precisely what would happen if the electric bill went unpaid.

      There’s more to managing a business than just the financial aspects of it--a business is made up of employees who will seek out leadership from their employer, the business owner. An owner needs to walk the fine line where they are seen as a resource for employees to turn to, but also as a motivator for these same employees to remain focused on the task at hand. There also needs to be an effort on the part of the owner to keep their employees happy, comfortable, and engaged, as this will help benefit the staff’s collective productivity.

      Those employees who seek to excel will need to be provided with the opportunity to grow professionally, while underperforming employees will need to have their behavior analyzed so that the issue can be identified and resolved so that company time and resources aren’t being wasted. These matters commonly travel up the chain of command to reach the owner, especially if an employee’s poor performance becomes a Human Resources issue.

      Of course, a business can’t function without its clients, and so that is another area that an owner must devote their attention to. A business exists to provide goods and/or services to their clientele and customer base, and in order for the business to do so, there should be a culture of respect and professionalism when dealing with clients. It is a business owner’s job to encourage that kind of environment, observing that business processes are followed and promises are fulfilled post haste.

      Additionally, a modern business will need technology in order to properly function, which in turn needs to be maintained so it remains in secure operation. To keep these maintained, an owner needs to make sure that their resources are all up to date and accounted for, all patches and security updates applied, and that their backup solution is tested.

      Lastly, a business owner has a life outside of the business to attend to as well. Familial responsibilities and private matters come in and create friction that will often seep into the workplace, and vice versa. Totaled up, that’s some considerable pressure that the manager has to contend with.

      Symmetric Engineering Group can help to relieve some of that pressure by managing your organization’s IT on your behalf. That way, you can go about business, secure in the knowledge that your IT will be ready to enable your success, with the support you’ll need if things don’t work out.

      Tip of the Week: Choosing the Right Storage for Your Business

      Cloud
      The cloud offers quite a few advantages to those who utilize it as a data backup or storage solution. A major one is how cost-effective a cloud platform is, as the costs of maintenance and utility requirements are bundled into the service, and the only costs left are for storage space and the services that the cloud provider offers.

      In addition, the cloud offers fully customizable scalability to your needs. Unlike an in-house platform, the space and computing resources available to you are fully adjustable. All you need to do is inform your provider, and they will adjust your service to best fit your requirements. Furthermore, the cloud also provides improved accessibility. Cloud-based storage allows you to access the data stored in your provider’s facility via most Internet-connected devices through either a browser or an app, providing you anytime access.

      There are a few disadvantages to cloud storage, but your particular business needs may cause them to not factor in quite so strongly. However, speed can be a consideration, given your circumstances. If, for instance, you have a considerable amount of large files, or your Internet connection isn’t quite up to the task, working with the data you have in the cloud may not be efficient enough for business purposes.

      Local Storage
      Local storage allows you to access your data at increased speeds, but there are other advantages to it as well. A business that leverages an in-house infrastructure has increased control over their solutions, and as a result, more options.

      This increased control enables you to design and manage your infrastructure in a way that saves money for your business. For instance, a single server can host multiple virtual machines, and your information can be protected by redundancy.

      However, the initial costs are considerable because of the need to procure the requisite hardware and software, and scalability becomes a bigger concern. What’s worse, keeping all of your data in one place leaves you vulnerable. If a disaster were to strike, you could lose access to your data, assuming that your data survives. It’s also important to consider the fact that every several years, your infrastructure will need to be refreshed and upgraded, which would require another upfront payment to deploy the same platform.

      The Hybrid
      Many companies find both on-premise IT infrastructure and cloud hosting to have their own pros and cons. In cases like this they might use a hybrid of both. For example, hosting your email in the cloud but your line of business app in-house might be the best solution for your business. Your IT requirements, security compliances, and broadband speeds are all factors that come into play when making decisions about where your infrastructure should go.

      Symmetric Engineering Group can help you to make these important decisions regarding your business technology. Give us a call at (813) 749-0895 for assistance.

      Make the Most of Your Data Migration

      Why You May Need to Migrate Your Server
      There are plenty of reasons that you may find yourself in the position where a server migration is necessary. If, for instance, your current server to be inadequate for your needs, or it is no longer working reliably, it is probably time to replace it. The same can be said if you’ve managed to fill it to capacity, or if the manufacturer is ending support.

      Regardless of the reason, any server migration can be a hassle. However, approaching this task after properly preparing for it can help to simplify the migration process considerably.

      Preparations for Server Migration
      There are an assortment of practices that will generally benefit your success as you go about migrating your server.

      Cleaning Out the Old
      Your server migration process is an excellent opportunity to run an audit of the contents of your server and weed out anything outdated or redundant that is taking up more space than necessary.

      Testing a Backup
      With your server migration, safe is much better than sorry. There is the potential for an issue to pop up during your migration, potentially destroying or damaging your data. Testing your most recent backup before beginning the migration gives you the security of knowing that - even if something goes wrong - you haven’t lost your critical resources.

      Establishing Security
      Before you migrate anything to your new server, you need to make sure it will be protected once the migration is complete. To accomplish this, you’ll need to incorporate security measures into your new server, including firewalls, protections against Distributed Denial of Service attacks, and others. This will keep your data protected at all times, instead of leaving it vulnerable as these security measures are implemented after the migration is complete.

      Leaving the Old Server Running
      Once the migration process is complete, you don’t need to be too quick to take your old server out of rotation. Ensuring that your migration was completely successful will help you to avoid potential data loss, and if your new server isn’t properly functioning, not having the old server to fall back on could lead to downtime.
