On the 18th October, Redstor hosted its partner update day at the Oxford Gun Club.Paul Evans, Managing Director of Redstor, spoke about how the IT industry was experiencing unprecedented change driven by the consumeristaionn of IT, the move to the Cloud and that staying still was not an option for IT Service Providers. He continued that Redstor had been and was continuing to go through a massive transition to transform its business into a provider of cloud services, in particular Cloud backup and storage.Tony Ruane, Business Development Director, then spoke about the changes to the RBUSS (Redstor Backup Service for Schools) pricing and how the service continues to be adopted and the growing acceptance of online backup for secondary schools.Brian Evans then spoke about E-Safety in Schools and the duty schools have to safeguard and promote the welfare of their children and provide a safe ICT learning environment. This was becoming increasingly important with the widespread use of computers in schools and the growth of the internet. Adopting a managed approach to e-safety as championed by Redstor’s partner Securus was deemed preferable to a locked down approach.The final topic covered was how to deliver Schools’ IT services in an efficient manner by using CentraStage. In particular how to move the Schools ICT support model from a reactive to a proactive and predictive one. Somerset County Council had saved over 1,000 work days by automating mundane and repetitive tasks with CentraStage, Bristol City Council were able to reduce the amount of time spent on site by 40% freeing up technician’s time and East Sussex County Council were able to automate 60% of their tasks using the powerful tool.Oh and by the way, the winner of the clay shooting day was Luke Wilbraham from Turn IT On. Congratulations Luke!
