TOP TIP: We’d recommend using an Entry Level server for single service or role usage only. If your customer is looking to host several applications, multi role servers would be best practice so as not to add to system and configuration complexity. We’ve investigated several key services and specified what server size is best for multi role purposes.

Andrew Russell, IT Manager at TC-IT Services was looking for a partner to enable them to offer their customers not only competitive Office 365 rates, but a large cloud product and service range giving them the ability to quickly and easily expand their portfolio in the future. Since partnering with Giacom in 2018, Andrew now manages almost 50 customers and more than 700 O365 licences via Giacom Cloud Market.
TC-IT Services began offering their customers Cloud Server in early 2020 and Andrew has never looked back...
"We needed to host a 3CX telephone server and looked into on-prem servers as a dedicated solution, however Cloud Server was easily the best choice. It’s very intuitive, easy to set up and only took a matter of minutes to get going - ideal for us! So much so, we’re already planning to use further for dedicated file servers and much more."
"The traditional methods to configure Azure directly through Microsoft are generally more complicated, with lots of hoops to jump through. Cloud Server has massively simplified this for us."
"Provisioning Cloud Server is simple, and the interface is so slick making it easy to navigate via Giacom Cloud Market."
"We’ve not had any technical issues but have always found Giacom support to be prompt and very helpful, so I’ve no concerns if we need assistance in the future. Having previously used other CSPs the support was nowhere near as prompt and we found the overall service to be a lot less intuitive – a complete contrast to the order process within Giacom Cloud Market, which is fantastic!"
"Since partnering with Giacom we’ve saved a lot of time and resources with not only billing, but with many aspects of service reselling."
"Overall, we rate Giacom a solid 10/10 and would highly, highly recommend!"
