Offering – Cloud

Hybrid Cloud

Public cloud is very cost efficient and offers a lot of integration right out-of-the-box. However, due to the ‘one fits all’ approach you may want to implement a cloud solution that better alligns with your own environment and business needs. You might require support for local applications or mix on-premise solutions with parts in the cloud.

Local Storage

Unlike most cloud providers, Gfi is a 100% European organisation that guarantees the location of your data in Europe. When regulations or specific customer requirements impose storage within the country boundaries, we have partnerships with local providers. Our solution is specifically targetted to customers who are looking at cloud options with storage in Belgium or Luxemburg.

Flexibility

Gfi is proposing Secured and Managed collaboration services in a hybrid or private cloud approach. We can offer infrastructures and platforms as a service but present our customers with a true software as a service (SaaS) approach in the area of collaboration. We have references in both the IBM collaboration area as well as with Microsoft technology.

Our solutions are tailored to your needs. Systems running on-premise are converted to a cloud-based service and managed by us.

Expertise

Gfi is a major European IT player with years of experience in managed services. Our own cloud capacity is supported by a fully-redundant and monitored environment in multiple datacenters. Currently, we manage over 6000 servers and offer a variety of services.

Our people are certified in the more tradional areas of collaboration like IBM Domino and Quickr, as well as IBM Sametime and Connections which is the flag-ship product today. We can transform and migrate your IBM Collaboration Software environment to a cloud solution, bringing you all the benefits of cloud while still running your own applicationsw
