Nostra are first and foremost a Cloud computing company and have been for many years. Cloud computing is an alternative to traditional IT and simply put is a far more sustainable way to run your business. Instead of running your business applications such as email internally, they run in a shared datacentre and you simply “plug in” to use these services, making it easy to access and significantly lowering the associated costs. Cloud technology eliminates unnecessary on site servers and storage because all of your information is stored in the cloud.
Nostra are one of the few infrastructure suppliers in Ireland to have extensive Public, Private and Hybrid Cloud expertise. We are also highly unique in the length of time that we have had such varied experience, having entered the cloud space before any other provider in Ireland. Of those other companies who have recently acquired cloud expertise, we are still unique in having a dedicated Enterprise Cloud Division. Nostra provide public cloud solutions via Microsoft Azure either through your companies Azure EA or through Nostra’s own Azure EA. We are also accredited in all the major SaaS applications such CRM, SAGE and SharePoint, and have deployed more Microsoft Office 365 seats than any other Irish IT service provider.
In conjunction with technology partners including Fujitsu, Microsoft, Brocade, VMware, Cisco, and SonicWALL we have developed a series of Private Cloud Units that are fully certified by all the leading vendors and come with 5 year Warranties and Support. These bespoke Private Cloud Units come in a range of sizes and can be tailored to suit your individual business requirements. Hosting can be provided on your own premises or in a Nostra partner datacentre.
Hybrid Cloud solutions are the most common solution, and provide flexibility and scalability via the cloud but also ensure that you leverage your existing infrastructure investments. The majority of Hybrid cloud solutions incorporate Microsoft Office 365, SharePoint and Skype for Business in the cloud with your Domain Controller and File servers located on your existing on premise Servers. Nostra can also provide additional Cloud Storage Solutions, Active Directory Federation Services, and advanced Mobile Device Management solutions via the Hybrid Cloud model.
