Odds are if you are serious about the cloud, you’re already using at least one of Microsoft Azure, AWS, HPE Helion, Google Cloud, Oracle Cloud or somebodies cloud. There are benefits to each of the many cloud providers, however, it’s not only just good practice to have more than one, it’s also probably a necessity as each has its own unique features. Quite simply, not one vendor has the perfect answer to absolutely everything. If that were the case, there would be no competition!

For business owners, our business internet connection, such as a Fibre Ethernet leased line, is a business critical  service they rely upon constantly. Unreliable service, intermittent speeds and availability issues can leave you tearing your hair out in frustration.

Thanks to an existing customer, BanaBay Limited, giving a whole-hearted recommendation of how we at Serviceteam IT support them, we’ve added another fantastic new customer, Substrakt Limited.

BanaBay were very gracious, in allowing their potential next door neighbours to assess the quality of the leased line services provided by Serviceteam IT, by enabling secured access for Substrakt to evaluate. Substrakt had a resilient fibre ethernet leased line connection installed in an impressive 26 working days. The contract follows another successful year for us, which has seen our client base treble.

I’m sure many of you have noticed the Danish lifestyle trend of hygge, which has slowly crept into our shared consciousness this winter. While there is no direct translation into English, hygge is generally thought to refer to a particular sense of coziness tinged by nostalgia and comfort. Think sheepskin gloves, wood-fires, knitted jumpers, fragrant fresh bread with pumpkin seeds. Whether or not this appeals to you, the collective public appears to […]

In the last few hours, thousands of businesses suffered a complete Internet outage. It transpired that the collapse of ISPs Fast.co.uk, firenet and 186k meant that businesses were completely cut off from their customers, at a crucially busy time. This is an image of the message they sent out to their customers: This advised customers to seek alternative […]

We can all agree that winter is almost here, given the weather in the UK this last week or so. Hats and gloves were out. I even had to listen to my daughter complain she was cold on the way to the Christmas Market in Birmingham. Obviously, she was not prepared for the cold, wearing […]
