RapidScale CloudOffice


Published on

CloudOffice is a secure all-in-one solution set combining RapidScale’s four core products and services: Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS), Desktop as a Service (DaaS), and Hosted Microsoft Exchange.

We can package your business applications and add them to your CloudOffice. Your employees will be working in an enterprise-grade environment that is controlled and monitored 24x7x365. Additionally, all your data will be backed up in the cloud securely. With RapidScale's CloudOffice, you will have solutions that support collaboration and mobile workforces from any device, with any app, anywhere. It is the future of IT.

Microsoft Office 2010 offers flexible and powerful new ways to deliver your best work - at the office, at home, or at school.

Hosted Exchange enables you to communicate using business-grade email while eliminating the need to upgrade and maintain a physical Exchange server. Archiving and encryption services are available for compliance and security purposes. Tailor your solutions based on your unique needs and ensure that your communications are always available. You remain in control.

Unlike many competitive products, CloudOffice was built on a multi-tenanted Geo Load Balanced Active/Active architecture. This unique design offers several benefits to its end users but most importantly means that customers’ virtual environments are built redundantly upon one another creating the ultimate design in Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity.

RapidScale's consistent hardware refresh cycles ensure that customers’ applications are running on reliable maintained equipment at all times. Services are built in geographically redundant data centers, so if a primary site goes offline, the secondary site will initiate and users will be routed to that site. CloudOffice is a reliable and secure way to store data and clients will experience the latest technology with exceptional data protection.

RapidScale's CloudOffice product replaces a client’s physical IT infrastructure by moving all the customer applications to the Cloud. This eliminates the need for the client’s IT team to maintain and support the physical hardware. This will also minimize the workload on the customer’s finance department regarding the procurement of IT hardware and associated maintenance contracts.

At the infrastructure level, CloudOffice is fully backed by Active Directory architecture to simplify the deployment of user accounts. With our front-end control panel, even non-technical clerical and HR workers have the ability to easily spin up user accounts and provision users with a Desktop, Mailbox, Applications, and File Permissions in one fluid and smooth process using a “next, next, finish” procedure. Built on the same technology as our CloudDesktop platform, rich HD graphics and a seamless end user experience are just a few of the front facing benefits of our CloudOffice product offering.

  12. 12. Increased productivity and innovation: Employees are more comfortable with a personal device and become expert using it — making them more productive. Personal devices tend to be more cutting-edge, so the enterprise benefits from the latest features. Also users upgrade to the latest hardware more frequently. Employee satisfaction: Your people use the devices they have chosen and invested in — rather than what was selected by IT. 83% of users considered their mobile device more important than their morning cup of coffee. Allowing employees to use personal devices also helps them avoid carrying multiple devices. BYOD Cost savings: BYOD programs sometimes save budget by shifting costs to the user, with employees paying for mobile devices and data services. However, this often results in little to no savings, so do not base your decision primarily on anticipated savings. 9/30/2014 CloudOffice Training 12

  15. 15. Introduction/ Background: CloudOffice Success A shipping company located in Anaheim, CA with 25 employees of which, 20 are in the office on a daily basis, with a single IT manager supporting all users with occasional outside support from a VAR. Ongoing desktop support has tied up the IT Manager’s time most weeks. While deploying new desktops has helped relieve some of the time requirements it still takes up better than 50% of his time. Outside IT support cost ran $1,500 per month on average. Solution RapidScale’s CloudOffice solution allowed this client to outsource 80% of his IT, mainly desktop support for break fix. By virtualizing the desktops the IT Manager was able to set IT rules for the environment and easily manage them through the control panel. The client was also able to offset some of the additional CapEx slated for additional desktop replacement. Additionally, CloudOffice created the offsite data backup solution for the company and increased mobility by loading the VDI on additional devises such as I-Pads. Conclusion By moving to RapidScale’s CloudOffice platform, they were able to lower the outside IT support costs and create a simple access point to make adds, moves, and changes to the platform. The customer reallocated some of those savings to increasing the primary bandwidth at their location. The sales partner was pivotal in making these recommendations and providing the bandwidth solutions as well. 9/30/2014 CloudOffice Training 15
