Time to migrate and re-evaluate

As you already know that as a business we want to ensure your systems are secure and up to date. You may then remember a while back we informed you our valued clients that from July 14th this year Windows Server 2003 will reach the end of its life. For you this means that there is a potential security risk and compliance failure if you are still using this server after mid- July as Microsoft will no longer be supporting Server 2003.

Now is the perfect time to migrate your systems to the Cloud and take advantage of Microsoft 365 Office.

Business essentials include:

  • Email and calendars
  • Online conferencing
  • Instant messaging
  • Skype calling

And with Google Apps you can have access to your email, store and share files and documents in the cloud and send and receive instant messages using hangouts. Please contact us here at Cloudy IT and we can help you with your migration from Windows Server 2003 to the Cloud and advise you of our ongoing support once you make this change.

And for the next trick…..Iron Man!!!!

Some of you may remember Director David Hall’s mammoth London to Brighton cycle ride last September. Well he’s continuing his mission after just completing the Milton Keynes 20 mile run on Sunday 8th March.

He finished with a time of 2 hours 47 minutes. He didn’t stop there though and went on to complete the Milton Keynes Marathon with a time of 4 hours 10 minutes! All of this is great training for his next big challenge…… The Iron Man! On September 13th 2015 he’ll be travelling up to Wales and swimming 2.4 miles, cycling for 112 miles and running 26.2 miles – quite a feat we think. And if that wasn’t exhausting enough, David will also be doing the Henley Highwayman Triathlon 5th -7th June!

This time he will be raising funds for 3rd Buckingham Scout Group to help towards building a new scout hut. David is participating as part of The Halls’ Foundation set up by the Hall family with the aim of releasing the potential of young people and developing them to be the best they can be. If you would like to donate to this please follow this link to the Scout Group’s website page for more details. He’d really appreciate this and your continued support. Go David Go!
