Contact us if your organisation wants to integrate Microsoft SharePoint with key business systems, display dynamic dashboards or automatically publish content, reports and data feeds from third party applications or the web.

SharePoint On Premise, Cloud & Hosting

There are three common deployment methods for all editions of Microsoft SharePoint Server and Nexus can help you to select the most suitable option for your organisation:

  • SharePoint On Premises
    All of the computing infrastructure required for SharePoint hosted at your premises or data centre.
  • Hybrid SharePoint
    Some of the computing infrastructure required for SharePoint hosted in the cloud and some at your premises or data centre.
  • SharePoint in the Cloud
    All of the computing infrastructure for SharePoint hosted in the cloud.

SharePoint Online delivers the powerful features of SharePoint without the associated overhead of supplying and managing the infrastructure on your own. The flexible management options ensure that you still retain the control you need to meet the compliance requirements of your organisation.

Nexus can help you to deploy SharePoint at your premises, host it in the cloud as a standalone service or supply it as part of an Office 365 suite, where you could also get access to Exchange, Lync, Office and other Microsoft applications.

In some cases you might need to choose a hybrid combination and deploy SharePoint at your premises and host critical SharePoint services in the cloud to improve accessibility and business continuity. You can safeguard your data by hosting it in geographically-distributed data centres with continuous data backup, premier disaster recovery capabilities and a team of experts monitoring the servers around the clock.

Our SharePoint consultants and developers can help you to create development, testing, staging and production environments based on end-to-end strategies, which include operational processes, platform governance, architecture planning and infrastructure provisioning.

The purpose of high availability is to provide resiliency within your primary data centre to avoid unexpected downtime. The purpose of load balancing is to enable your organisation to fully utilise and optimise its computing resources to supply users with a high-performance SharePoint experience.

We can help you to measure availability and review the costs associated with implementing high availability strategies for SharePoint. Our consultants can plan and create a SharePoint farm architecture that supports high availability, load balancing, fault tolerance and integrated backup and restore operations to secure your mission critical intranet, extranet or web portal.
