neteffect Offers Hybrid Cloud Disaster Recovery Solutions with NetApp

Written by neteffect technologies. Posted in netCare

SUNNYVALE, Calif., April 13, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — “Previous IT solutions that promised to be dynamic and expandable quickly reached their limitations, which ultimately threatened to affect our sales,” says John Campbell, Chief Technology Officer of neteffect. “By combining NetApp storage with Cisco UCS servers, we have the flexibility to grow quickly while offering our customers a cost-effective disaster recovery solution and better performance at no additional cost. We’re going to get a lot of longevity out of this platform.”

Based in Charlotte, N.C., neteffect technologies creates custom solutions that blend on-premises IT and cloud services. The company needed an IT solution that could scale both performance and capacity for internal applications as well as its external netCare cloud disaster recovery offering. With the help of NetApp (NTAP) and partner Tego Data Systems, neteffect implemented a hybrid FlexPod solution with both AFF and FAS storage. It resulted in an immediate improvement in performance and reliability for the company’s backup, archive, and disaster recovery services.

Based in Charlotte, N.C., neteffect technologies creates custom solutions that blend on-premises IT and cloud services. The company needed an IT solution that could scale both performance and capacity for internal applications as well as its external netCare cloud disaster recovery offering.  With the help of NetApp (NTAP) and partner Tego Data Systems, neteffect implemented a hybrid FlexPod solution with both AFF and FAS storage. It resulted in an immediate improvement in performance and reliability for the company’s backup, archive, and disaster recovery services.

Today, neteffect can quickly respond to the demands of its internal users and cloud customers, as well as easily scale performance and capacity independently without disruption.  With FlexPod using NetApp all-flash arrays, internal applications now run up to 10 times faster than they did before, boosting productivity and efficiency. Maintenance windows have shrunk from hours to minutes, so it takes fewer resources to migrate virtual machines and spin up new systems. That results in significant cost savings for customers.

In addition, neteffect has been able to expand its solution offerings to provide cost-effective disaster recovery (DR) services. Rather than build and manage their own secondary data recovery sites, customers can now replicate data to neteffect’s archival storage tier. If there is an outage, they can be up and running on neteffect’s FlexPod-based cloud offering in an instant. As an added benefit, customers with NetApp storage in their primary environments can use NetApp native replication tools to eliminate the need for expensive third-party software, which saves money and makes data recovery an affordable option.

With its new solution, neteffect can:

  • Quickly respond to demands of internal users and cloud customers
  • Scale performance and capacity independently without disruption
  • Improve application performance up to 10x
  • Cut maintenance windows from one hour to one minute
  • Improve customer experience with flash, cost savings, and affordable data recovery solutions

How to ensure new graduates aren’t compromising enterprise networks

Written by neteffect technologies. Posted in netCare



You don’t have to look far to see one of many graduations occurring. Once college students have taken off their caps and gowns, with any luck it’s not long until they have secured jobs, with a lot of luck maybe even before they crossed the stage with degrees in hand. As these brand new employees come on the payroll, businesses must work to be certain their security habits are in line with the business’ policies. Recent studies suggest that the mass of Millennials truly are indifferent about their data.

neteffect technologies LLC Ranked 222 Among Top 501 Managed Service Providers by Penton Technology’s MSPmentor

Written by neteffect technologies. Posted in netCare

9th Annual MSP 501 Ranking and Study Identifies World’s Most Progressive MSPs in Information Technology

neteffect technologies ranked position #222, among the world’s most progressive 501 Managed Service Providers (MSPs), according to Penton Technology’s 9th-annual MSP 501 study. The top MSP 501 companies ranked this year include organizations from around the world and from diverse technology and business backgrounds.

In addition to honoring neteffect technologies, this year’s MSP 501 list and study showcases the following:

  • The top ranked MSPs in North America
  • The top MSPs in Europe, Middle East and Africa
  • The top MSPs in Asia, Australia and New Zealand
  • The top Small Business MSPs’ list, comprised of organizations with 10 or fewer employees
  • The top vertical markets pursued by MSP 501 companies
  • The leading tools they leverage to run their businesses
  • And the top technologies they provide to customers

“It is an honor to be named to the MSPmentor 501 Global Edition, particularly since year after year there are so many competitors for a spot on this coveted list,” said David Wollenhaupt, President, neteffect technologies. “The service provider industry is changing faster than ever before. Being named 222nd is exciting; it speaks volumes about the business model we continue to build on to provide a sustainable and scalable service model. Our success is due to both our staff and our customer base who year after year contribute to the continued growth and success of neteffect technologies.”

As businesses continue migrating away from on premises computing environments in favor of SaaS solutions, managed it services providers continue to find new and innovative methods to add value for their clients as margins continue to be squeezed through the cloud movement. In 1991 neteffect technologies started out as an IT services provider primarily serving the architectural and engineering community before “virtual” and “cloud” were popular marketing terms. Servicing the business community in a reactive environment didn’t prove prudent to David Wollenhaupt. As a business owner, Wollenhaupt treats each customer as he wants his company to be treated, like it’s his own; this vision permeates throughout neteffect’s culture. Every customer’s needs are handled proactively, before a need presents itself. During the onboarding process, neteffect technologies spends time with the client learning about their business processes. This helps in putting into place innovative tools that best fit their companies’ needs.

“On behalf of Penton and MSPmentor, I would like to congratulate neteffect technologies for its recognition as an MSP 501 honoree,” said Aldrin Brown, Editor in Chief, MSPmentor. “The managed service provider market is evolving at a rapid pace and the companies showcased on the 2016 MSP 501 list represent the most agile, flexible and innovative organizations in the industry.”

The 2016 MSP 501 list is based on data collected by MSPmentor and its partner, Clarity Channel Advisors. Data was collected online from March through April 2016. The MSP 501 list recognizes top cloud service providers based on metrics including recurring revenue, growth and other factors. In addition to a ranking on the MSP 501 list, every company that participated in the study has been assigned a score reflecting its intrinsic value. The measure, known as the Total Service Provider (TSP) score, evaluates an MSP’s mix of revenue from various activities, including consulting, cloud, reselling and managed services. The TSP index ranked services providers based on the evolution of their business models, ranking neteffect technologies 129th.

What Does Your IT Budget Look Like

Written by neteffect technologies. Posted in netCare

IT budget

IT budgetThe end of 2015 is rapidly approaching, which makes the subject of IT budgeting a little more prominent in people’s minds. There needs to be considerable thought into how much your business will be spending on IT compared to how much it is willing to spend. This can be a confusing situation with a lot of figures, projections and unfamiliar terminology. But you don’t have to make this important decision all by yourself.

neteffect technologies has an extensive amount of experience assisting businesses when it comes to technology, forecasting and budgets. At neteffect technologies, one of our core beliefs is that IT is one of the more integral components of a company’s budget. Every year, there is a natural increase in expenditure. Now, more than ever, companies are making substantial investments in the area of cyber security. Those investments increase every year as there is an ongoing need for tech solutions than ever before. Some of the more important areas to be considered are:

  • Cloud Computing
  • Mobile technology
  • Security
  • Big data analytics


Cloud Computing

Businesses are continuously changing the way they operate with cloud computing. ComputerWorld projects that more than 40 percent of businesses are going to incorporate a host of cloud infrastructures within the upcoming year. This includes private clouds, public clouds, hybrid clouds, and community clouds. Cloud computing provides such versatility that businesses can discover exactly what they need in order to operate more efficiently.

neteffect technologies offers the opportunity to equip your business with the cloud solution that fits best. Access, security and all the benefits that come with cloud service can be yours with the help of neteffect technologies.

Mobile Technology

Mobile technology is changing the way business is being conducted as company employees work from anywhere. Part of that includes secure WiFi networks, more efficient access tools and mobile device management systems. With the addition of each mobile device on the infrastructure comes the concern for reliable security. It is also important to note that mobile applications are not all secure and business transactions are not ideally conducted on unsecured WiFi networks. neteffect technologies can provide help ensuring the security of business transactions and network infrastructure.


The annual IT budgeting report as reported by ComputerWorld indicated that 46 percent of the companies involved are planning an increase in security expenditures. This is not surprising considering the amount of legitimate threats over the past year. But it does not take a multi-million dollar budget to provide adequate security. A flat-rate monthly fee provides your business with exceptional security solutions through neteffect technologies’ managed services, maintaining your company’s network infrastructure. There is enough to worry about just conducting daily business.

Big Data Analytics

The analysis of large amounts of data at a rapid rate is becoming a more popular business trend. This is also a way for your business to create new marketing possibilities and enhance overall sales. ComputerWorld’s recent survey reports that 38 percent of IT leaders will issue an increase in what they spend on big data analytics in 2016. Big data analytics introduces a lot of raw data and businesses are becoming more open to using the proper tools that will help in decoding and organizing that data.

Finding trends in data is made easy and will enable businesses to keep up with the latest industry developments.

The future is now

Outsourcing IT functions through neteffect technologies can wind up putting more money on your bottom line while also eliminating the need to hire more staff to meet the daily demands of your business. neteffect technologies’ services offer flat-rate solutions that accommodate all budget requirements.

Is Your In-House IT Staff Recharging While On Vacation

Written by neteffect technologies. Posted in netCare

Work On Holiday small

Work On Holiday smallIn 2013, a survey conducted by TEKsystems indicated that 67% of IT workers are interrupted on their work vacations because of work-related IT issues. Businesses who are that reliant upon an IT worker need to reexamine how their operations are run on a daily basis. There is a need for businesses to function without this all-important IT worker. The problem is, according to that same survey, that 80% of those companies made no arrangements to compensate for that vacationing IT worker. That is the real issue.

It is also not uncommon. IT technicians are called quite often when they are not at work. Many businesses expect their IT techs to be available around the clock and multiple surveys revealed that the number of businesses with that expectation are on the rise every year. The reality is that it’s not fair to that IT worker, nor is it conducive to a business to be so reliant on one person.

Advanced technology makes it easy for businesses to contact their IT specialists. All it takes is the push of a button. So there is virtually no escaping the grind of a workweek that never seems to end for IT professionals, especially those at a senior level.

Every employee needs some down time to recharge their batteries and escape the pressing demands of work. Good managers recognize this fact and emphasize the importance of rest. Rest without interruption also enables employees to function more efficiently when they do return to work. Businesses should want all of their employees to function that way. So when it comes time to give an IT tech some well-deserved time off, there is a need to make sure that its business as usual at the office.

That is where neteffect technologies steps in to help. Outsourcing a company’s IT functions to neteffect technologies enables daily operations to run smoothly. Then, IT workers can actually enjoy some real time off. And if there are any issues, neteffect technologies will provide a solution. Routine maintenance, updates, backups and virus scans all fall into the capable hands of neteffect technologies.

Provide your IT technicians with some peace and quiet by calling neteffect technologies at 704-504-9040.
