CLOUD COMPUTINGCloud computing

Businesses today want to provide their employees with the flexibility and freedom to do business anywhere. At the same time, they want peace of mind that their IT environment is protected and under control.

We enable our clients to embrace the benefits of online services – efficiency, scalability and economies of scale – without the headaches. Cloud computing also offers other advantages:

  • Speed up deployment of new systems from weeks to days
  • Accelerate IT projects to support business initiatives in fast-moving markets
  • Match IT costs to actual usage, avoiding expensive over-provisioning of hardware
  • Integrate different systems more efficiently
  • Outsource server management and security to specialist provider

“CWL took the time to understand our position and presented a clear and efficient solution which would involve moving the IT infrastructure to the cloud based Azure platform. It seemed daunting, especially when faced with the trauma of two physical moves in six weeks, but our confidence in CWL was rewarded as they took us stage by stage through the process. Throughout every stage of the project they were supportive and available to respond to all of our requirements”

Janet Clements – Director of Operations AAAS

Office 365

Microsoft’s cloud-based service gives you everything you need for effective communication and collaboration. It includes email, file sharing, an intranet, internet conferencing and access to the latest Microsoft Office applications, either online or downloadable on demand.

Everything works together seamlessly and syncs across devices. This means that you and your employees can be productive wherever you go, using virtually any device.

Productivity on tap

Traditional productivity tools require upfront purchases, time-consuming installation and regular upgrades. Office 365 offers a different model because it is cloud hosted - you always get the latest technology for a monthly per-user fee.

You also get virus and malware protection, automatic backup and a 99.9 percent uptime guarantee with a financially-backed service level agreement.

Office 365 gives you and your employees the productivity tools they need, regardless of time, location or device.

Mimecast is a cloud-based email service, which provides email security and cloud archiving, giving you:

  • Protection against inbound and outbound email-bourne threats, deliberate or accidental data leaks and email service outage
  • Cloud storage that brings together email, file and instant messaging into a single archive
  • Productivity tools, including Large File Send, which allows users to send large attachments from within Outlook
  • Simple, single-console management for IT teams, covering security, content protection, retention policies and compliance

Is email crippling your business?

Are you thinking too much about your business email and spending too much time managing it?  Does it cost you too much money to archive email and too much time to constantly monitor for security and continuity?

By supporting a Mimecast deployment, CWL can help you save that time, lower those costs and reduce those risks, making email a business help - rather than a business hinderance.

Let IT get down to business

  • Cost effective. Benefit from dramatically reduced costs, no upfront investment and predictable future costs
  • Simple to manage. Get a single admin console for email management, delivered by one vendor with one SLA
  • Litigation-ready. Gain rapid access to tamper-proof email and data to support the most demanding legal requirements
  • Low risk. Enjoy email security, continuity and archiving your business can depend on completely
  • More productive. Ensure your IT team has fewer help desk queries, simpler management and spends less time on maintenance and upgrades
  • Familiar. Eliminate the need for training - Mimecast works within the Outlook interface that’s known and trusted by users
  • Migration Ready. Make integration and migration much easier by adopting a service that’s optimised for Microsoft Exchange and Office 365

Cloud Backup

Our cloud backup service provides quick, cost-effective, secure, reliable offsite backup – allowing you to recover anything, anywhere, at any time.

Hybrid Cloud Backup

CWL’s online backup enables you to set up hardware for local storage, providing you with a third copy of your data on the premises. This ensures you have access to your data both on and off-site, enhancing the speed of restore and providing additional resilience.

Bare Metal and Image-based Recovery

Automate full system restores, with the option of recovering directly onto bare metal or into a fully functioning virtual machine, therefore simplifying your disaster recovery and business continuity processes.

Virtual Drive

Browse your remote backup data through Windows Explorer, and enable drag and drop restores and the opening of files directly from the backup data. 

Military-grade Security

Data is encrypted at source, in transit and at rest in our data centres using your choice of 128-bit AES, 256-bit AES and 448-bit Blowfish. With sole access to the encryption key, only the customer can decrypt and recover their backup data - unlike with other online backup services.


We believe it is vital that our online backup customers have the right commercial model, which is why we provide customisable options around retention periods, pricing (scale-up/scale-down), support, professional services and implementation.

Cloud Management Console (CMC)

Accessible anywhere, the CMC allows IT departments to monitor and manage backups, set-up schedules and automate administration and processes. This is true management by exception, reducing the time spent managing backups.


Reporting is a key function, with scheduled reports and information regarding online backup status, enabling IT departments to intimately track, administer and manage backups and restores.

Item Level Recovery

Remove the operational headaches associated with performing item level restores in Exchange, SQL and Sharepoint. Our Online Backup removes the need to run legacy systems or recovery databases by enabling “drag-and-drop” item level restore through an intuitive user interface.
