Straightforward Advice on Cloud Services

Cloud solutions allow you to run your business using resources on the internet. Thus avoiding the need to buy expensive onsite hardware. This also allows your staff to access many of those resources such as email from anywhere. In other words you are not tied to one physical location as long as you have an internet connection. However, these services are not just limited to cloud based email.

For instance here are a few of the technologies we can consult on and deliver:

  • Microsoft Office 365
  • Datto Business Continuity & Disaster Recovery
  • Cyber Security Protection
  • Network & Firewall Management

What are Cloud Services?

Software as a Service (SaaS)

SaaS is software that is deployed over the Internet rather than installed on a computer. This gives a number of benefits, such as lower costs, quicker implementation and better scalability. SaaS is probably the model that most of us are familiar with. Common examples are Office 365, MailChimp, Google Drive, DropBox, Slack, and Netflix.

Platform as a Service (Paas)

PaaS is a cloud computing model where a third-party provider will provide hardware and software tools, primarily those needed for application development. Microsoft Azure App Service, Amazon Web Services, Google App Engine are all examples of PaaS.

Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS)

IaaS gives businesses the option to have a vendor provide and manage hardware on their end. These services enable you to remove the frustrations of having to operate infrastructure of their own. Microsoft Azure server virtualisation is an excellent example of IaaS, allowing you to install, configure and scale up servers on Microsoft’s Infrastructure and then access those online.



"Alto have been supporting Unity for a number of years with our IT systems. During the recent COVID-19 restrictions, when business continuity was crucial, Alto were able to provide the dedicated support we required. This included effective responses to challenges associated with remote working, additional hardware set ups and general IT support, while going through the same hardships themselves in dealing with the unprecedented situation we all find ourselves in."

Niall Cameron – Senior QHSE Manager

CLAN Cancer Support

"While having to make a quick transition as a business from working in the office to working from home, Alto supported and guided us through these challenging times to allow us to work as effectively as possible. Alto provided dedicated support throughout the speedy service of ordering our IT equipment, installation and providing us with guidance on IT security. A great customer focused IT support company that we would highly recommend."

Diane McDonald - Facilities Manager

Whitelink Seafoods

"We have worked with Alto for over 2 years now and can’t recommend them enough. Their customer service is second to none, staff are friendly, polite and have a vast wealth of IT knowledge. Any time we need assistance there is always someone on hand at the support desk to help and they really do just feel like an extended part of our team. Since working with Alto they have recommended various new working practices that we have now put in place, the main one being that we now have preventative solutions in place rather than reactionary, this in itself has been very reassuring for us. We would highly recommend Alto to any company looking for an excellent IT Support Company."

"This was a very urgent job due to 2 computers failing overnight after an update. We received a very competitive quote very quickly and the job was completed to our great satisfaction within 48 hours and the IT expert Ross, who was sent to install the information on the new computers certainly knew his stuff... very satisfied customer."
