GeniSys Global was founded in 2002, by IT business colleagues David Spears and Johnny Diggs. They knew that they could offer a better way for organizations to handle their critical data.
GeniSys started out as a traditional IT company, installing and supporting internal IT networks. Seeing the wave of the future, they began offering offsite application hosting, and a virtual desktop experience. GeniSys made hosted services available in 2004 with data backup, Citrix Metaframe Presentation Server, and Microsoft EA/OL. In 2005 GeniSys partnered with the Microsoft SPLA program. For the Genisys customers this meant reduction of their IT costs, through the sharing of expensive resources such as backup power, enterprise hardware, and network connectivity. It also meant having access to their data anytime, from any active internet connection in the world. For the GeniSys engineering team, it meant being able to support all customers’ hardware and data remotely and seamlessly.
GeniSys soon realized their vision and moved into a virtualized, clustered environment, building an enterprise-level data center network with state-of-the-art technologies. This eliminated the need for clients to maintain and upgrade expensive server hardware, and allowed GeniSys to make available their services to organizations of all sizes. Organizations that could not justify investing large amounts of money in technology could now have an enterprise IT environment for a fraction of the cost, by allowing GeniSys Global to solve their IT dilemma and host their networks. The businesses were free to focus on their important, revenue generating initiatives.
GeniSys quickly saw that clients were realizing a reduction of as much as 36 percent of their traditional IT budgets by accessing services from GeniSys’ secure data center. Virtualization and clustering also allowed for quicker recovery of a downed server, since the server could be backed up directly and redundantly. In addition to this built in disaster recovery plan, storage space became dynamic, expandable on an as-needed basis.
In addition to the services above, GeniSys now provides its clients full integration of their voice and telephone network through Unified Communications, boosting productivity and enhancing connectivity. This means: fully integrated enterprise telephony with e-mail, video conferencing, and instant messaging; seamless escalation from instant messaging to voice, to desktop/video conference, and recording; outlook mail box unifies e-mail, voice mail, instant message strings, and faxes; collaboration with shared version-controlled documents, resources, and calendars.
All of this can be quickly and easily provisioned through the GeniSys client portal. It allows permissioned clients, with or without technology backgrounds, the flexibility and speed of on demand purchasing and configuration of servers or services, without having to call GeniSys Global. All this is done on a per user per month basis and is fully scalable so that clients only pay for what they are using.
With the new products and the global reach of the Internet, GeniSys has no stopping points.
