Cloudstar Providing Free Migrations Away From Microsoft Azure

Cloudstar is pleased to announce free cloud migrations for companies currently using Microsoft Azure Cloud services.  The migration service is in response to feedback wherein Microsoft Azure customers have been growing increasingly dissatisfied with various aspects of the Microsoft Cloud specifically in the areas of unpredictable billing caused by automated resources on demand, and questionable performance during peak work hours due to Azure being a “public cloud”.

Under the new program, Cloudstar is willing to move current Microsoft Azure customers into a dedicated private cloud environment with unlimited resources and billed at a flat rate per user.  This model addresses two of the loudest concerns while ensuring customers are hosted in an environment with a smaller cyber-attack footprint.

The same program is also available for users of the popular Office 365 system, Microsoft’s hosted email platform.  Microsoft O365 as it’s sometimes called has grow in popularity due to its low cost pricing and ease of use, but hackers have also taken notice making it one of the most heavily targeted systems for hacking, email phishing, and business email compromise.

If you’re interested in your own private servers, with flat rate pricing, please contact Cloudstar at 800-340-5780 or contact us online by clicking HERE

Cloudstar Adds Two Additional Failover Data Centers

Jacksonville, FL March 17 2021 – Cloudstar is pleased to announce the addition of two additional data centers for the purpose of providing real-time fail-over options to its customers.  The data centers, located in both Phoenix, Arizona and Atlanta, Georgia were selected for their geographic locations, and proximity to high speed fiber routes.

Cloudstar, a Zerto Service Provider (ZSP), offers customers the ability to replicate files, virtual machines, and workloads in real time.  In the event of a service disruption, the customer’s entire server infrastructure can be instantly transferred to an backup data center facility in minutes, with near zero data loss said Gregory McDonald, CEO of Cloudstar.

Because Zerto is a continuous data protection (CDP) solution which continuously journals all changes, customers can restore an entire environment to virtually any point in time – instantly.  Customers now enjoy the flexibility to choose their backup data center location from any of the following six states – California, Arizona, Georgia, Colorado, Florida, and New Jersey.

“Working hand-in-hand with our customers to develop a comprehensive cyber-security & disaster recovery plan to meet or exceed regulatory guidelines is what we do best.” said Christopher Cury, EVP of Customer Experience.  “The more our customers view the relationship as a partnership, or an extension of their team, the better the results”.

While nobody wants to think about downtime, ransomware, regional Internet outages, DDoS attacks, data corruption and state sponsored cyber-crime remain the top reasons for unplanned downtime. Cloudstar remains committed to helping its customers embrace these challenges and plan for the unexpected.
