Time To Host Your CRM in Cloud

As you know CRM (Customer Relationship Management) is a solution for managing your company’s relationships and communications with existing and potential clients. The main goal of every CRM solution is to increase profit by improving customer relationships, streamlining customer acquisition and customer management processes. Depending on your business needs you can define a simple CRM process like:

  1. Cold calling to set up appointments
  2. Go to your appointment and try to sell your product
  3. Close the deal or follow up

Or a more complex process such as:

  1. Collect information about your client base
  2. Analyse and process the data
  3. Conduct a market research
  4. Generate contact information
  5. Generate customized solution and personalize
  6. Schedule appointment
  7. Close the deal or follow up

Traditionally organizations used to host their CRM applications on-premise, hosted and managed by their internal IT department which means it took time, personnel, equipment and capital investment to setup a CRM environment. However cloud computing has changed everything; basically hosted CRM makes your application available from a remote cloud infrastructure that is accessed through the internet.

 

What are the benefits of hosted CRM / cloud CRM?

  • Reduce cost: You do not need to make a huge investment in purchasing servers and storages, you pay for the services and resources you actually use and you have the option to upgrade the resources as you go.
  • Business continuity: Cloud servers remove the single point of failure because there is always another hardware node ready to take over from a failing node; it minimizes downtime without the expense of having a replica physical server sitting idle.
  • Free up your IT resources: In a hosted environment, hosting provider takes care of the hardware and underlying infrastructure so you do NOT need to hire IT specialist or worry about downtime and connectivity to outside world.
  • Seamless access: Because your data is hosted in the cloud, authorized sales agents can access CRM application from virtually anywhere, as long as you have access to the internet.

In a nutshell, hosted CRM on cloud offers scalability, security, elasticity, redundancy, low entry cost and flexible pricing.

Cirrus Hosting is now deploying Windows Server 2016

windows-server-2016

 

Cirrus Hosting is thrilled to announce that we are now deploying the latest version of Microsoft’s Windows Server on all our Cloud VM and Virtual Private Server (VPS) plans. Windows Server 2016 comes with lots of new features and upgrades. Let’s take a look at some of them:

 

Server footprints get even smaller with Nano

One of the biggest IT pro-related announcements Microsoft made this year was about Nano Server, a new small-footprint option for installing Windows Server 2016. Microsoft claims that Nano Server will have 93% smaller VHD size, 92% fewer critical bulletins and 80% fewer required reboots.

Nano is ideal for compute heavy tasks, or for dedicated purposes such as the mentioned DNS, IIS, or F&P. Nano can run well on both physical hardware and as a guest VM.

If you have online shop or downtime is a challenge for your system, you should give Nano a chance. You will love it!

 

Containers

If you have developed an application, your code, runtimes, tools, libraries, or anything else that your application needs to find on the running operating system in order to work can all be included in the container.

Microsoft has been working closely with Docker team to bring Docker-based containers to Windows Server. And now Windows Server 2016 offers two different types of “containerized” windows Server: Windows Server Container and Hyper-V Container. First one is for where you don’t mind container to run on the same server and the latter is for when you want completely isolated containers.

Either Docker-based or Hyper-V, if you are looking for process isolation, security and scalability in your application containers, Windows Server 2016 will satisfy your needs.

 

Improved server management with PowerShell 5.0

The latest version of Windows Server comes with PowerShell 5.0, which has many improvements, including new module called Package Management that lets you install software packages on the Internet. Also The Workflow debugger now supports command or tab completion, and you can debug nested workflow functions. And PowerShell 5.0 now runs in Nano server directly, so administration of this lightweight server platform is made even simpler.

 

Extended Storage Space

Three new features take over the software-defined storage that enables you to create HA data storage: Storage Space Direct, another cool feature of Windows Server 2016 creates redundant and flexible disk storage. Also Storage Replica replicates data at the volume level in either synchronous or asynchronous modes, while Storage QoS (Storage Quality of Service) guards against poor performance in multitenant environment.

 

Software-Defined Networking (SDN)

Greatly valuable in a virtualization environment, software-defined networking enables you to set up networking in your Hyper-V environment similar to what you can do in Azure, including virtual LANs, routing, software firewalls, and more and it makes life so much simpler for you.

You can also do virtual routing and mirroring, so you can enable security devices to view traffic without expensive taps.

 

There is a long list of improvements and it will not fit in one post of our blog. You can continue to read and learn more at System Center provided by folks at windows.

 

Are you looking to be one of the first to try the Windows Server 2016 on your cloud? We offer it Now for any Cirrus Cloud VMs or VPS.

 

Call us at 1.877.624.7787 (1.905.881.3485 if you’re in the Toronto area) or email us at sales@cirrushosting.com for more information about these features in this list or if you have any questions in getting your new server. We will be happy to assist you.

Docker: Reorganizing the Data Center

There is an interesting evolution taking place in the traditional hosting space. Cloud computing is being steadily extended. People are rethinking the data center and this exciting process opens up an eclectic variety of new modifications to the traditional server in order to serve the customers better.

Virtualizing the server is one such modification available in the market today. The act of virtualizing a server in computing refers to creating a virtual rather than an actual version of something. This includes but is not restricted to a virtual computer hardware platform, operating system (OS), storage device, or computer network resources. Cloud computing is the technique that after virtualization has taken place provides resources from various separated computers on-demand.

The environment used to virtualize the server is Hypervisor. Hypervisor helps to create   several virtual machines (VM) that have an independent CPU, Memory and Network and individual Operating Systems.

Cloud providers such as Cirrus Tech are getting really interested in Docker Container technology within a Virtual Machine. Docker is an Open platform for developers and system administrators to build and test cloud applications. Docker is fast becoming a very convenient way for building, running and shipping distributed applications. Docker, which is operated as an application (service), is a Virtualization platform that can build and package a number of applications and make them highly portable.FullSizeRender

Docker helps to manage a computer environment separated from an OS by using the Libcontainer, which is a Linux container system. This Container technology is more than a decade old already. Google has been using in-house versions of containers for many years. But Docker container has now made the tools easy enough for everyone else to use too.

Thanks to Docker, users can now create a network and attach containers to it. They can communicate seamlessly across a cluster of containers with a single command. Basically a container summarizes applications and defines their interface to the surrounding system, which should make it simpler to drop applications into VMs running Docker in different clouds.

With Docker developers and system managers can distribute and test the software that they have developed, more easily and faster, move it from a laptop environment to any geographical location or any system that is supported by Docker or vice versa.

By using Docker containers, resources can be isolated, processes provisioned and services restricted to have an almost completely private view of the operating system with their own process ID space, file system structure, and network interfaces. Multiple Docker containers share the same kernel, but each container can be constrained to only use a defined amount of resources such as CPU, memory and I/O.

 

Docker is primarily made up of two technologies:

  • Docker Engine: A portable, lightweight application runtime and packaging tool.
  • Docker Hub: A cloud service for sharing applications and automating workflows.

These two work together and the developer utilizes these two to implement their technology to make their testing or developing cycles quicker and easier.

 

Benefits of using Docker in a Virtual Machine 

1) Having a Docker container in a VM is easy to manage and applies the policy of system, network, user and security. With Docker, there is no need to install an extra OS as Docker container has everything it needs to operate.

2) In a Docker container, you can run multiple Docker instances in a single VM or per physical node and so this is far more economical for developers.

3) Having a Containerized version of a VM makes it easier to maintain and to port to new cloud environments. Containers are isolated and share an OS and can also share bins/libraries when required.

 

Giant tech companies are rushing to deploy this Docker technology, which represents one of the biggest shifts in application development in years. Mostly all activity online now is an application running in the cloud. Apps housed in Docker’s free container software have been downloaded 535 million times in just two years.

Many large businesses are planning to adopt Docker faster than any cloud open-source product ever according to a study by New York based market research firm, Enterprise Technology research.

Docker is completely open-source and easily accessible. Therefore, it is being consumed heavily in the market by the non-procrastinating developers.
