In the rapidly growing market of Cloud applications and services where the global market for Cloud services is estimated by respected IT analysts Gartner to reach $21bn by 2015 with over 16% year on year growth and IDC estimates that 14m people worldwide will be employed in Cloud computing by 2015. There remains a number of key issues for both SME and enterprise businesses on how employees working data is stored, managed and then used.

Key to these issues is the following:

  • Where is this data held?
  • What jurisdiction and law applies to this stored data?
  • Is it managed securely and privately?
  • Can employees still work normally and locally on their PC’s.
  • Does the data storage and protection solution cover both employees PC data and email data.
  • Is data seamlessly and continuously backed up, keeping it safe and available at all times?

Sky-Workplace provides the answers to these questions for SME businesses with Sky-Workplace Sync, which syncs and backs ups employee’s business data from their PC’s and then allows them to share their data privately and securely across their business with their colleagues

  • All data is held securely and privately in Shared-Sky’s UK Data Centers
  • All data is managed under UK Jurisdiction
  • Users of Sky-Workplace don’t have to change anything about how they work. They continue    to work normally and locally on their PC and laptop and Sky-Workplace does all the hard work.
  • It works in the background continuously and seamlessly syncing and backing up a user’s data.
  • It also provides the ultimate Disaster Recovery solution as every piece of data is held securely in a company’s own “Private Cloud”. Lose or break a PC and all you have to do is load Sky-Workplace, recover your data and start working again.    

Richard Collins Shared-Sky co-founder said, “Sky-Workplace represents an exciting opportunity in this new, rapidly expanding, marketplace for cloud services. There are 750,000 SME businesses in our UK target market and they could all use our services to protect and use their data in a more productive way.
