Frequently Asked Questions

How does the pricing work?
We do not charge an up-front setup fee and have a simple monthly subscription pricing model. The price will depend on the number of staff accessing the system, the size of the data you wish to host and the performance level of the server chosen. There is no lock-in contract. Just use month-to-month.

What do I need to get started?
All you need is an Internet connected PC or Laptop to start using your private cloud server.  

How do I move my data to the cloud server?
We provide a free setup and data migration service to ensure downtime is minimised.  We upload your database via the Internet overnight and in the morning you are ready to start using your private cloud server.
