One of the best ways to edge out your competition is by using the right business technology. Some business owners fail to realize that the infrastructure that powers the various pieces of technology they use daily has to be updated over time. When the time comes to update the components of your technology infrastructure, seeking out advice from reputable IT professionals is wise. 

On average, outdated technology causes businesses in the United States to lose over $1.8 billion a year. An outdated technology infrastructure will prohibit growth and can lead to your employees being less productive. If your business technology infrastructure is outdated, you might notice one or more of the warning signs covered below. 

Slow Application Computing Speeds

The average small business in the United States uses several web-based applications in its day-to-day operations. These applications are used for everything from scheduling meetings to managing remote employees. If your team uses web-based applications daily, you need to make sure they are fast and reliable. When application computing speeds slow down significantly, figuring out why is vital. 

If the applications you have in place are slow, employees might avoid using them. This will lower productivity levels and can negatively impact employee morale levels. Once you notice this problem, it is important to find a solution quickly. The team at Green Olive Tree can track down the source of your tech infrastructure problems and offer guidance on how to fix them. 

A Noticeable Lack of Storage Space

Having a disaster recovery plan is something every small business should have. Routinely backing up important data is crucial when trying to keep this information accessible and safe. If you are unable to back up the files on your network due to a lack of storage space, you need to make some changes. If you are still using onsite servers to power your network, it is time for an update. 

Embracing cloud-based computing solutions is a great way to unlock all of the storage space your business needs. With the help of the cloud, you can unlock a virtually unlimited amount of storage space for your team. This type of technology is also essential if you use remote workers. 

Cyber Security Threats

Most business owners store lots of sensitive information on their servers. If this information is not properly protected, it is only a matter of time before cyber-criminals find a way to access it. If your business has been effected by a cyber-attack, you need to make sure this never happens again. The only way to keep these criminals at bay is by improving your business technology infrastructure. 

With the help of experienced IT professionals, you can implement state-of-the-art cyber-security solutions. These professionals can also provide network monitoring services, which will allow you to detect cyber-security threats early on. Once these threats are detected, your IT team can work on removing them quickly. 

If you are experiencing one or more of the problems mentioned in this article, it is time to invest in business technology infrastructure upgrades.

What Our Customers
Have To Say

About three years ago we were looking for a new server provider, the problem that we were having was we are not “server guys” and we had over 400 clients to take care of. So anytime we tried to get support we had to submit a ticket, try to explain what was going on, and then pray that the response was in some form that we could understand.

After the on-boarding with Green Olive Tree, they told us that we had twice as much server than we needed and they were not set up right. Thank goodness we have found someone that really looked at what we want to do and gave us real actionable advice. It is safe to say that we have found our server company, and now we can focus on growing out business and not have to worry about the reliability of our support.

Thanks again Green Olive Tree, You Guys Rock!

John Owens

Green Olive Tree has been an invaluable resource to my company allowing me to focus more on my business instead of the management of servers. In the five years I have done business with GOT I have had zero downtime. Knowing that everything is being kept up-to-date and they are proactively patching system flaws gives me peace of mind that I didn’t have before finding Green Olive Tree. Jon has always made himself available when I’ve needed advice or help on upgrading servers or software and I can’t imagine ever going back to managing a server without GOT.

Green Olive Tree has been very good to us. Jon has helped us scale from 200,000 unique’s visitors a day to over 3 million per day. From 1 server to now 14 on a well-structured load balanced failsafe system. Not only that he has managed to reduce our server resources 3 fold by installing the right kind of software so we’re getting more power out of each server for the same price. He always responds very quickly and stays up at all kinds of crazy hours to help us out, the man never sleeps! I guess that’s why he was a Navy Chief, he brings that discipline into his work and that’s what we love.
