Cloud Services

For businesses choosing to move their current in-house services or who may be looking for a more robust platform compared to their traditional hosted services, we find that Cloud services provide an alternate option for all. Moving to The Cloud has been well marketed and documented - there is a lot of opinions on the use of Cloud services but we do feel that finding the right Cloud Host Provider, coupled with comparing ongoing costs to one off costs, are two of the main areas that should be reviewed before any decisions are made for your business.

There is no right or wrong answer to using Cloud services - it is more about whether or not "it's the right fit for your business”. If it does fit then we are partnered with many of the leading Cloud providers to provide and manage your services in The Cloud.

UK Exchange Mail and Outlook Services

Through one of our UK partners we can provide exchange email with the added option of a separate Microsoft Outlook subscription. This service is ideal for customers who have already purchased or don’t require Microsoft Office and are looking for Exchange email services without having to purchase or maintain their own in-house mail server.

Online Cloud Backup

Our Cloud back up service is available for both workstations and servers. Customers will have access to all the necessary tools to back up software including Microsoft Exchange, SQL Server and Hyper V. Server accounts will also be given 150GB storage as standard, as well as options to upgrade to Unlimited storage if required.

Cloud Managed Antivirus

By centrally managing your Antivirus Software online we will be able to monitor and manage each antivirus product on your network. We will also be notified by email if there any are viruses located on your PC’s so that we can then deal with issues immediately before you start noticing problems.

Cloud Website Hosting

Currently providing unlimited Windows and Linux Web Hosting services. All of our Cloud Hosting packages come with control panel management and free mysql databases. Our Control Panel service includes many website tools and options such as ssl certificates and basic email accounts.

Office 365 and Exchange Email

If your business requires Microsoft Office licencing and you are not looking to pay all the software costs upfront, then Office 365 gives you a monthly payment option. Additionally, Office 365 users will be provided with an Exchange email account for accessing email/calendar services from multiple devices and at any location. At DATA, we will be able to send you an email via our Microsoft Partner link to subscribe directly to Microsoft in which we will be able to setup and manage your Office 365 subscription services on your system.

Web Development

There are a lot of factors to consider before deciding on who is the best choice of supplier to help develop and design your website. You may well think it would be as simple as looking at some examples and saying you are happy to proceed, unfortunately if the process was this simple there would not be so many companies who have become frustrated and confused by the whole web development process.

Fortunately here at DATA we have listened carefully to new customer's previous experiences. We not only offer a competitive package, but we also offer peace of mind to customers so that they know we will do everything in our power to make sure that their experience with us is pleasant, stress-free and that should any issues occur they will be dealt with in a timely and efficient manner! We want your experience of Web Development to be good (enjoyable) for everyone to be involved and as part of a team, that's what we strive to achieve.

Our current website development services offer:

  • We offer a Bespoke (Unique) Design Service
  • We do not charge for any design work until we have prepared a draft page that you have confirmed that you are happy with
  • We offer cost per page & fixed cost design packages

Customer Testimonials

DATA have managed and maintained all of our IT requirements for more than 10 years now and we have always found their service to be first class. Deadlines are consistently met and any changes or upgrades are explained clearly and concisely to those of us with limited IT awareness!
Connell & Connell WS
As a new company, we were keen to find a reliable IT service company that could help us both with our inherited IT and future-proofing our move to web based software options. DCS were by far the best in terms of the advice they gave us and the products they recommended. They were able to explain technology in ways we understood and enabled us to make considered choices about what we needed. They then implemented those choices flawlessly. After using their excellent ad-hoc service for 6 months, we were delighted to retain them as our sole IT company. We have had some complicated issues with our inherited software and hardware but DCS have never failed to resolve them both quickly, effectively and in a way that is specifically tailored our needs. We cannot recommend DCS highly enough and their support to-date has played an invaluable part in establishing our business.
Trust Recruitment
D.A.T.A were highly recommended to me by a legal firm who have been using their services for many years, to assist me in all of my IT requirements. Their advice on computer purchases, set up assistance and continuing support have been invaluable. The team at DATA are professional, knowledgeable, very efficient and deal with requests in a timely, effective and friendly manner. They are a real asset to my business.
Fiducia Legal
We have recently moved to DATA computer services for all our IT support and have been delighted with the level of service we have received. The advice and support provided has been excellent, and we have been extremely impressed with the timescales to which any issues have been responded to. Everyone we have contact with at DATA is extremely professional and we look forward to building a long lasting relationship with them.
Scottish Association of Landlords
We used Data Computer Services to replace our server and a number of the computers. We were impressed with the efficiency and competency of the personnel and the cost effectiveness. As a consequence we moved all of our IT requirements to Data Computer Services including hosting of our domains and overseeing our web site. Nothing seems too much trouble and we are extremely pleased with both the service and the costs involved.
M&F Scotland
We have recently used DATA computer services for all our IT support. As a new business, DATA provided expert advice and support when purchasing our hardware, website design, email hosting – in fact everything. Without their expert guidance we would have wasted valuable time launching our business. DATA has a highly experienced team of technicians who are extremely helpful, consistently polite and patient when dealing with our ongoing questions and queries during our initial set up phase. Their fast, efficient and cost effective service allowed us to set our business up and be operational in a very short period. Exceptional service, sound advice, thank you.
Beaumont Associates Ltd
We have used DATA for over 6 years now for all our IT requirements, and are very pleased with the service we have received. They are always on hand whenever we need them and the response time is very quick.
