IronGate to sponsor Fall ‘10 LightSpeed Certification Camp

IronGate is proud to be sponsoring the Fall 2010 (Montreal) edition of Xsilva’s Reseller Certification Camp, as we feature the Affiliate and Reseller Programs for Background Backup.

With LightSpeed optimized defaults and reseller co-branded CrashPlan PRO installers, Background Backup has become a strong part of a number of LightSpeed reseller’s toolkit. Key benefits of this monitored service include the ability to host both local and secure offsite backups using the same tool, and the contextual awareness that our technical support team has toward the data that is being protected, in order to help with a speedy recovery should anything ever go awry.

Our featured success story for this camp will highlight Kristin Green, Macintosh Business Consultant, who has been protecting his LightSpeed installations with Background Backup since July, 2009. Thanks, Kristin!

How the world has changed…

Somedays I take for granted just how far we as a technological society have come in such a (relatively) short amount of time; today is one of those touch-stone days, when it just hits home.

Today, I am fortunate enough to be attending my grandfather’s 100th birthday, and as he has watched me monitor CrashPlan PRO installations and manage numerous servers from his Gaspé, QC farmhouse, there is a lot of head shaking and amazement. “How can you be working in Toronto, when you’re sitting right here?”

What will I be shaking my head at in 20, 30 or maybe 40 years? Will the changes be as dramatic as the evolution of horse-drawn buggies to self-parking cars, or from morse code based telegrams to remote server work from a 3G-equipped iPad?

Thanks, Bampa - I’m lucky to have you in my life, and I love the stories you vividly continue to share.

IronGate named to Profit HOT50 list, for second year in a row

OTTAWA, Canada (September 10th, 2009) - Five years ago when Sean Costello founded IronGate Server Management and Consulting, a Macintosh integration firm, he focused on providing straightforward support to the burgeoning Apple business market. He quickly assembled a top-notch team of experts, and then proceeded to earn an enviable reputation in the field. In 2008, IronGate expanded its service offering to include managed, offsite backups, and today the team’s ongoing efforts are being recognized with IronGate being named, for the second year in a row, to the PROFIT HOT 50 list of emerging companies. IronGate is the only Macintosh integration company to make the list, and one of only three companies from Ottawa.

The PROFIT HOT 50 is the definitive ranking of Canada’s emerging growth companies. Published in the October issue of PROFIT magazine and online at PROFITguide.com, the PROFIT HOT 50 ranks young firms by two-year revenue growth.

“There is simply no substitute for reliable, consistent service,” said Kristin Green, author and consultant to small business owners in the Toronto area. “I wouldn’t settle for anything less when it comes to my clients’ needs, and the folks at IronGate deliver in spades.”

According to Mr. Costello, the marketing and broadcast industries have always been heavy Mac users and consequently a significant portion of his growth has come from these sectors. However, a growing number of business owners are deciding to run their businesses on the powerful, easy-to-use Mac platform, and are relying on IronGate as technology partners to ensure they are getting the most out of their IT investments.

“As our trusted advisor, the IronGate team gives us peace-of-mind,” said Kira Schoch, partner at Solera, a marketing firm in Ottawa. “We tell them our business objectives and they tell us what IT solutions will help us get there. It’s a true partnership.”

“IronGate is honored to once again be recognized on this prestigious list of emerging Canadian companies,” said Mr. Costello. “It’s a tribute to the quality of our team, strength of our business model and commitment and trust of our customers.”
