Cloud computing is a hot topic in the technology world and many people in the not for profit world are asking the same question, "What is cloud computing, and how can it benefit my organisation?"
Cloud computing is a general term for anything that involves delivering hosted services over the internet. Cloud computing can be defined as the set of hardware, networks, storage, services, and interfaces that combine to deliver your IT requirements as a service over the internet. Gallery's cloud infrastructure allows you to access a suite of hosted applications through an internet connection - anytime, anywhere, your data is simply there when you need it. Our hosted solution gives all the benefits of using a server-based IT solution but without the overheads of purchasing and maintaining your own equipment in-house.
One of the main advantages is that your cloud will never go out of date and it can grow with your organisation. Our services are flexible and scalable, so you only pay for what you need. We can provide you with a holistic cloud plan based on your exact needs, incorporating a variety of cloud technologies and providers, some hosted in-house by us and others supplied by third parties, all supported by our helpdesk. Stay up to date with the latest versions of the Office Suite Applications and use them on the go including Word, Excel, Powerpoint, Publisher.
One-dimensional file servers are becoming a thing of the past. Using mature, Cloud-based document management solutions, like Microsoft SharePoint and OneDrive (as part of Office 365) you and your colleagues will be able to access your files from almost anywhere and truly collaborate. Gallery offers off-line access to client data via Microsoft Outlook and Dropbox, so key data can be accessed even if your internet connection is down. We can integrate Dropbox to sync with your shared data for increased data availability and easy backup and disaster recovery.
Cloud Email gives you a super-fast, reliable, completely worry-free email system that you can access from the office or on the move. We recommend Microsoft's enterprise grade email Outlook using Microsoft 365. The product is technically excellent and a great fit for charities, who can qualify to have it for free. Benefits include accessing email and calendars on the go, mobile access, offline access, superb security, massive storage and regular backups. Full virus and spam protection is included.
Enjoy all the freedom and benefits of mobile working. Gallery’s cloud can be accessed, not only from your work or home PC or laptop, but from tablets, smartphones and Macs. You can leave programs running, disconnect and then, when you reconnect, everything will be exactly where you left off, even if you connect from a different device.
