Planet Cloud

PlanetCloud is Planet IT’s private cloud datacenter, this allows us to offer to customers access to the benefits of the cloud without the limitations and security concerns of public cloud, and this we can offer a range of partial or fully hosted datacenter services all under one banner. PlanetCloud operates out of two datacenters in the UK, both of which are running to ISO 27001:2013 standard and implement physical security which is dedicated to protecting the running environment.

Both of our state-of-the-art datacenters can offer up to 10Gbps connectivity in and outbound and are located in geographically diverse locations allowing our customers to again access to zone based redundancy for back up and disaster recovery. Our datacenters feature dual power, dual power back up via large battery farms, dual connectivity via diverse routed connections, full rack cooling and fire protection.

We started PlanetCloud because we knew that the costs of implementing such a diverse and resilient infrastructure in most office locations was unachievable for most businesses, because of this we ensure that the PlanetCloud system is built to the highest standards and can provide resilient systems for all of our customers.

The locations of our datacenters are not publicly published to ensure that our customers have the protection of knowing that the security of their data and equipment is of the utmost importance.

Why Private Cloud Over Public Cloud?

When our customers are looking for a solution to move their system offsite there are three options, private, public and hybrid cloud. With PlanetCloud our aim is to make private cloud as affordable as possible while giving customer the flexibility to maintain the hardware they already have and gain maximum value from it. We have specifically designed the fabric of our PlanetCloud infrastructure to work with the key Public Cloud providers like Amazon, Google and Microsoft to allow our customers to benefit from Hybrid cloud when the solution calls for it.

Most customer choice to go private cloud with PlanetCloud because of the higher return on investment and lower monthly costs vs a private cloud offering. On average vs hosting your servers in your office a business can save £5,000 per year on cooling, power and maintenance of equipment and server rooms.

Microsoft Gold Partner

Office 365 for Business is much more than just Microsoft Office in the cloud. It offers many benefits for businesses, assisting growth, saving money to name a few.

Office 365 gives you flexibility to scale your business quickly as it can grow with you. Businesses have the ability to mix and match apps to create your own custom solution for each user or department, and it’s easy to add or remove users by simply adding or eliminating licenses.

Since you can scale up as needed, your team can continue to work with the tools they are familiar with as you grow, you don’t have to change to a new system or adapt to new tools.

One of the main benefits of Office 365 is the capability to work from anywhere as long as you have internet connectivity. Because it’s entirely cloud-based, email, files and Office programs (including Word, PowerPoint, Excel, etc.) can be accessed from any location and any device. You can create, edit, and share from your PC, Mac or your iOS, Android, or Windows device with anyone in real time.

This is particularly beneficial for companies with multiple locations, remote employees or employees who travel often.

Office 365 is always up to date because it’s in the cloud, so you’ll have access to the latest versions at no additional charge; Gone are the times of software upgrades or patches. Microsoft continually adds new features and capabilities, and you have access to them as soon as they are introduced.

A common misconception about the cloud is that it’s not secure. However, in reality, it isn’t necessarily any more or less safe than an on-premise system. It’s all in how you use it and what security measures you put in place.
