Taylored and Intermedia Are Taking Your Business Into the Cloud

You know what they say: jack of all trades, master of none. At Taylored, we take that old adage to heart. Although we pride ourselves on installing and maintaining a range of different IT services, when it comes to designing the required products and devices, we let our partners take the lead.

Trusted strategic partners like Intermedia allow us to offer cutting-edge solutions for businesses of any size. With the help of its top-tier cloud hosting and productivity services, our specialists can focus their energy on building and designing the best networks and systems for your organization. Intermedia’s cloud solutions are so powerful and intuitive, in fact, that we just can’t help singing its praises. Here’s why we love partnering with this company.

Your Most Important Business Applications, Powered by the Cloud

Some business applications you can go without, but it’s virtually impossible to run a business without powerful tools like document sharing programs and email services. Microsoft Office and Exchange email are by far the most popular applications for these purposes, particularly for businesses; at a keynote in 2016, Microsoft reported that there were over 1.2 billion Office users worldwide.

However, in today’s world, a few versions of Office and a business email server isn’t enough — those applications also need to harness the power of the cloud. That means being able to upload and download documents and assets, edit and collaborate in real time, and of course, do it all from any place in the world. Fortunately, Microsoft created Office 365 and Exchange online to allow businesses to do all that while using the powerful productivity apps they need.

At this point, you may be wondering where Intermedia fits into all this. Its Office in the Cloud product helps us provide streamlined, unified Office 365 and business-grade email configurations with top-tier features and security protections.

All assets created and saved in Office 365 — plus all of your emails — are stored in Intermedia’s infrastructure. Not only will your business gain access to hosted applications and server space, but you’ll also enjoy email archiving, server redundancy, integrated backups and security features such as encrypted email, access management services, email filtering and malware protections.

Cloud-Powered Business Solutions With Intermedia

Hosted Office and email aren’t the only reasons businesses turn to the cloud, of course. Cloud-hosted servers allow you to store additional assets, remotely access databases, use various online applications like Quickbooks, and even host websites easily and efficiently.

Instead of leasing space in a data center, Intermedia provides secure, accessible cloud instances combined with best-of-breed features. With a little help from Taylored’s account managers and technicians, you’ll be able to scale cloud storage up and down at will, easily patch and update server applications, and manage server configurations through Intermedia’s online platform. And of course, you’ll get the same automatic backups, encryption services and other security tools that make Intermedia one of the safest ways to move to the cloud.

Here are a few other advantages of moving to the cloud:

  • You’ll always have the latest software and hardware — no need to purchase updates.
  • The assets you create in online applications are instantly saved and backed up in the cloud.
  • The monthly subscription model may save you money, since you’ll no longer have to purchase equipment out of pocket.
  • Your business will have access to Intermedia’s and Taylored’s teams of expert technicians, helping you configure and manage servers and applications.
