Cloud Computing

Shadowfax are strong advocates for the use of Cloud technology to advance flexibility & efficiency alongside reducing infrastructure risks & costs. We are positioned to provide both off-the-shelf cloud solutions from the world's largest vendors, such as Microsoft Office 365 & Azure via our Microsoft Partnership, and tailor-made Cloud Hosting for any client's demand of server, storage and backup resources. 

Whether your business needs complete Cloud, or more of a Hybrid-Cloud approach, we're here to support any requirement from end-to-end. Please see more details of our Cloud offering below or contact us to discuss your specific needs & challenges.

What is The Cloud?

Cloud Concept

Cloud technology provides organisations with the required level of server compute & storage resources without the responsibility for the hardware. Taking traditional systems and running them from data centre based platforms, instead of local business premises.

Save Money

Switch your IT infrastructure investment from capital to operational - Manage service costs via recurring fixed monthly fees. Cloud allows organisations to save by removing the need for large up-front investments on hardware & licensing.

Secure

Security is assured with the implementation of enterprise-grade security policies & practices. At Shadowfax we only work with certified data centre operators that are ideally UK, or at most EU based.

Flexibility

Work anywhere with the freedom of access to your services from any internet-connected device. The local barriers of limited performance, poor broadband connectivity and lack of remote access are all things of the past.

Microsoft Office 365

Microsoft Office 365 is the all-encompassing user subscription based cloud service offering from Microsoft. The platform operates through the new 'SaaS' (Software as a Service) model, which ensures users remain on the most up to date software without large software or upgrade fees. Office 365 includes licensing for the traditional Office desktop client, along with hosted services for Email, Document Storage & Management, Communication and Team Collaboration.

Shadowfax offer expert consultancy, migration & rollout services, with on-going support & change management. Please contact us to discuss the needs of your organisation or project and see where we can help.

SCloud - Managed Cloud Hosting

SCloud Logo

We entered into the cloud world early, adopting technologies from some of the UK’s largest vendors & data centre operators. We quickly found the ‘off the shelf’ products simply weren’t adequate for our clients – a lack of control, support and flexibility. This made us take a new approach…

SCloud is the UK-based, tailor made, secure cloud platform delivered, fully managed and entirely supported by Shadowfax. The platform is built on enterprise-grade equipment from Dell, Arista and EMC, and only operates from data centres based in the UK, across sites in London & Manchester, all with a guaranteed 100% up time. Through SCloud we can deliver a truly tailor made platform for any business cloud hosting requirement - across file storage, hosted desktop & remote apps to fully hosted infrastructures.

The Service

SCloud delivers a resilient, highly-available platform for the hosting of any server, desktop, software or storage demand. We don’t offer off-the-shelf boxed solutions. SCloud is entirely tailor made.

We utilise our expertise to innovate & develop solutions to fit both technical requirements & commercial expectations for every client need. Through open conversation and our belief in planning, advice and consultancy with our clients, we correctly scope solutions that are flexible & scalable, aimed to cure business challenges, rather than create new ones.

Operating from the latest Dell serves, cutting-edge storage technologies from EMC, Pure & Equallogic, combined with enterprise-class Arista network & security infrastructure, SCloud offers dedicated resources to meet the performance demand of any Windows-based virtual environment.

We believe in keeping control & ownership, that’s why all of our SCloud services operate from award winning data centres, which are based in London & Manchester. Compliant to current ISO & security standards, we can confidently meet the sensitive security compliance requirements required within such regulated industries as Healthcare, Finance and Local Government.
