Why we invest so much £ in resilient IT

Why we invest so much £ in resilient IT

Our office internet connection has just failed.  I know it’s not “out fault” as other offices on the same floor are also down.

No big deal.  I’ve turned on our mobile internet dongle which is basically a mobile phone pretending to be a WIFI connection and told the computers to look for that and not the “wired ethernet”.  Once that is done, we connect to the VPN (a tool that gives us a secure connection to our database if we aren’t using the wired ethernet), and within 5 minutes we’re back up and running.

Okay, it’s a little slower, but it’s working!!

Time for a thank you to our IT Partners Advantage who helped us design and implement the system.
