On the 10th of August, Timico played host to the Newark Business Club by opening our Newark data centre to attendees for their monthly business breakfast. Attendees enjoyed a number of presentations on the following topics:
Future online landscape and how that will impact small businesses – Presented by Rob Wilmot of BCS Agency
Social media for small businesses – Presented by Paul McIntyre of Search High
The key message we wanted to impart was around the importance of managing business servers, as they are central to the running of your business and how using a data centre can realise the following benefits:
Reduce power and connectivity commitments to your premises
Increased life expectancy of your server equipment
Ensure that your equipment is in a secure location
Technical engineering expertise to be your 'remote hands'
Post event attendees took part in a tour of our state-of-the-art data centre facility which offers the perfect infrastructure for businesses to host or co-locate their server equipment in a fully secure facility.
What was interesting was the reaction from the keen audience around how they can take advantage of the new (and some not so new), online technologies to grow their businesses. As Rob pointed out, these are not expensive routes to market and can yield some serious business benefit. Having a business grade platform for taking advantage of this ever evolving change in the online landscape is essential.
The meeting ended with a presentation from Nicola McCoy-Brown from Nottinghamshire County Council, who asked attendees to participate in a pledge to ensure investment is made in high speed broadband in Notts. If you wish to support this, click here and pledge your support.
