WHY Zero42?

Michael Mansfield has been working in the telecom & data networks industry since 1986, having completed his apprenticeship whilst working at CAMTECH™ Electronics as part of the design team behind the famous Joint Academic NETwork [JNT X25] (JANet) the forerunner for what we now know as the internet.

Janet developed out of a number of local and research networks dating back to the 1970s. The JANet system first went live in April 1983, hosting about 50 sites with line speeds of 9.6 kbit/s. In the mid-80s the backbone was upgraded to a 2 Mbit/s backbone with 64 kbit/s access links, and a further upgrade in the early 1990s sped the backbone to 8 Mbit/s and the access links to 2 Mbit/s, making Janet the fastest X.25 network in the world.

Renowned for his in depth knowledge of both voice and data transmission protocols our founder has worked with some of the UK’s largest network providers, private corporations and government bodies whilst specialising in cyber counter-intelligence and network security.

WE TRULY CARE ABOUT OUR CUSTOMERS

Cloud computing is a type of Internet-based solution that allows shared processing resource tasks and hosted data to computers, mobiles and other devices on demand. It is a model for enabling universal, on-demand access to a shared pool of computing resources (e.g. networks, servers, storage, applications and services) which can be rapidly provisioned and released with minimal effort.

Called "cloud" because of the way I.T professionals sketch network diagrams with network elements representing the provider-rendered services are invisible, as if obscured by a cloud. It relies on the sharing of common resources to achieve economy of scale, very similar to a utility like the gas or electricity over a common pipe & cabled network. Supporters of cloud technology claim that cloud computing allows businesses avoid upfront infrastructure costs, and focus on projects that distinguish their businesses instead of spending budgets on infrastructure.

Cloud computing and storage provide both users and business with various capabilities to store and process their own data in independent data centres, cloud computing allows businesses and individuals to get their applications up and running faster, with improved manageability and less maintenance plus it also enables I.T managers to more rapidly adjust resources to meet fluctuating and unpredictable business demands. Cloud computing has become a highly demanded service due to the advantages of high computing power, low cost of services, high performance, rapid scalability, accessibility as well as availability.

CLOUD HOSTING

A BEGINNERS BRIEF GUIDE

 

Cloudy with a chance of... ...TARballs !

OK NOT QUITE, BUT IF YOU ARE TECHIE GEEK THEN YOU WILL UNDERSTAND

CloudZero™ gives you total control, so you can create the exact server setup you need, with 1 to 99 virtual machines running your chosen applications.

Administration is so very easy with your CloudZero™ control panel giving you immediate access, although as with all of our hosted services we take care of the set up and maintenance for you.

The CloudZero™ cloud platform is built using leading, high performance technology. Our cloud platform uses HP Servers running VMware’s vSphere ESXi virtualisation solution, and your server has 100% SSD storage, within SolidFire Storage Arrays. Load Balancing is via F5 Big-IP Load Balancers.

All CloudZero™ servers come with a choice of Windows Server 2008 or 2012 R2, CentOS 6/7, Ubuntu 12.04/14.04 or Debian 7. Choose the preferred operating system for your business without losing any features. You can then rapidly launch web pages and build reliable line-of-business applications with our range of SQL Server license software, including Microsoft SQL Server 2012 or 2014 in Express, Web and Standard editions to MySQL 5.

CloudZero™ also allows you to create and change server configurations at will. As your needs change, you can move between simple single-server applications and the most complex, resilient solutions.

Single Server

  • User
  • Application & Database Server






The entire environment resides on a single server. For a typical web application, that would include a web server and database server.

A common variation of this setup is a LAMP stack, which stands for Linux, Apache, MySQL, and PHP, on a single server.

Web + Database

  • User
  • Application Server
  • Database Server





Separating the database to a separate server enables better management of performance and scalability of your web application.

Provide increased security by keeping database away from front end applications – if your web server is attacked, your data has that valuable extra layer of protection.

Load Balanced

  • User
  • Load Balancer
  • Dual Application Server
  • Database Server
  • Shared Storage



Ideal for busy websites, the load balancer shares the load across two or more application servers.

Shared storage enables application files to be managed from a single place.

Large Scale Servers

  • User
  • Admin User
  • Load Balancer
  • Multiple Application Server
  • Database Server
  • Database Reserve Server
  • VPN Access Point
  • Shared Storage

Flexible arrangements with secure backend access and no SPOFs.

Scale instantly to meet the demands of your busiest web applications and cloud solutions.

All of our CloudZero™ network solutions are hosted here in the United Kingdom and supported by UK based technicians available 24 hours a day 365 days of the year.

CLOUD BACKUP

 

Backup all of your critical data online... ..Instant access, Instant Recovery.

You know how easy it is to lose vital files. And so now you regularly back up your system to an external hard drive. That's a good move, and will protect you in many situations. But what if there's a fire? A flood? A burglary? Any major catastrophe could mean you lose your backup media, as well as your hardware, and so for real security you'll need to turn to an online backup service.

It's easy to assume this will be too slow, and certainly your first online backup can take a very, very long time. But after that, the program should only need to upload new and changed files in the folders you've specified, which means performance could be much better than you expect.

Why CloudZero™ ? In a word Convenience If things live in the cloud you don't need so much local storage, so instead of slow hard disks you can have small and nippy flash storage – which also means better battery life from your devices. It also means you can access your data from wherever you happen to be – on your smartphone, in a hotel business lounge, at home or anywhere else you can get a data connection.

Cloud storage makes everything simpler. A basic example of this would be instead of transferring media files to your phone you simply stream MP3s or movies from faraway servers. Instead of copying crucial documents to flash drives or burning them to disc, you stick them in the cloud where they can't be left in the office or on a train.Even more conveniently, much of this happens automatically – so for example cloud-based music services know when you've bought new music and make it available to all your devices immediately, and cloud-based storage knows when you've updated a file and updates its copy accordingly.

A good online backup service may provide other benefits, too, such as synchronising folders with other computers and generating links for files so you can share them with work colleagues. A web view on your files will make them easily accessible from any device.

DISASTER RECOVERY

 

When everything else fails... ...We have you covered!

We hope that you will never need our Disaster Recovery Service, but it’s nice to know that if the very worse does happen, then we have your back.

From fire and flood to acts of terrorism and civilian riots disasters come in all shapes and sizes and can hit your business at the most critical of moments.

Plan for all eventualities and chances are that you will never need to implement your disaster recovery plan, but burying your head in the sand and pretending that such things only ever happen to other people will maybe someday come back and bite you.

We take care of all the critical parts of your disaster recovery plan, from providing somewhere for your key personnel to work from, to having your Telecoms and Data networks back up and running within just a few minutes from the moment you trigger recovery action leaving you free to continue running your business.
