RELIABILITY IS JOB 1
When designing a tech environment—reliability is key.
Having a reliable tech environment provides several benefits to your business.
Uptime - Your tech is available 365x24x7.
Portability - Access from anywhere, anytime.
Recoverability - Resilience to natural disasters.
Productivity - The ability to work the way you want.
Security - Protection is built-in. As much as you need.
To build a reliable tech environment you’ll need to set things up a certain way.
The key is cloud.
By leveraging cloud apps and services your business can easily and affordably build a reliable tech environment.
The following is what I call the Tech 6.
The Tech 6 are the 6 tech items you’ll need to build your reliable tech environment with.
The six things are.
Your email in the cloud
Your files in the cloud
Your business apps in the cloud
Your phone system in the cloud
Your fax in the cloud.
And 2 internet connections for the office
So how do you get there from here?
Here’s a quick overview of some tech options to choose from.

Obviously, there’s more to this than just buying a few things to build a tech environment.
