Helping charities and non-profit organisations access discounted Microsoft licences

Microsoft offers an impressive suite of products that are ideal for meeting the needs of a wide range of organisations. However, you may not be aware that if the organisation in question is a registered charity or non-profit organisation, it can be possible to get a useful discount on the cost of the associated licences. Andromeda Solutions helps charities and non-profit organisations access discounted Microsoft licences, allowing them to use Microsoft products at a reduced cost.

The Microsoft 365 licensing discount scheme

As all organisation’s need similar computing solutions in the modern world, Microsoft has decided to make its products more accessible to charities and non-profit organisations which might otherwise struggle to justify the cost of its software licences. The tech giant offers Microsoft 365 licensing for its Business Premium product for free to the first ten users, and at a healthy discounted rate for any additional users.

This is offered alongside a range of other useful benefits. There are also lower prices available for charities wishing to use other Microsoft products, such as Office 365 and Dynamics 365.

Supporting a local charity with free IT services and IT support

Andromeda Solutions are delighted to be supporting the National Animal Sanctuaries Support League (NASSL) by offering free services, including IT Support. This wonderful local charity was established 30 years ago and works tirelessly to rehome abandoned and unwanted animals.

What do the National Animal Sanctuaries Support League do?

Everything NASSL do revolves around caring for animals in need, including working with local social services to take in and look after the pets of people in crisis, for example, those requiring support from women’s refuges. For the past 25 years, NASSL have been operating from premises in County Durham, however, due to the recent death of the landlord, they now find themselves with just 6 months to find a new home.

The good news is that the charity has been given the opportunity to purchase a plot of land so they can continue to carry out their amazing work and improve the lives of the animals they care for. They are currently fundraising to make up the shortfall of the purchase price.

IT Support by Andromeda Solutions

Andromeda is very happy to be supporting them in their mission and have offered free consultancy to help set up the GoFundMe page so supporters can easily pledge their donations. Andromeda have also provided work on the social media promotion for the launch, including the Facebook ad campaign, plus offered IT support and management oversight throughout the process.

All the animals cared for by NASSL are spayed/neutered, vaccinated and microchipped before being rehomed. They also offer a low-cost service for pet owners who are unable to afford these procedures, along with transport to and from the PDSA if their pet needs medical treatment and they have no means of travel.

A female cat who hasn’t been spayed, can give birth to large litters up to 4 times a year, risking both her own health and that of any unwanted kittens. Male cats, who haven’t been neutered, are likely to get into fights with other cats and spray in the home, making them difficult to keep, plus they can regularly go missing in their hunt for a female to mate with. By offering these simple procedures, the NASSL protect hundreds and thousands of animals each year.

Andromeda Solutions hope their IT services and support contribute to the continuation of NASSL and the successful purchase of the new site, so they can keep up the fantastic work they do. If you’d like to make a donation, please visit their GoFundMe page and give what you can.

The benefits of using Windows Server 2019 within your business

The latest server operating system evolution from Microsoft, Windows Server 2019 offers an impressive range of benefits. With a focus on Hybrid cloud environments and superb security features, it represents a cost-effective choice for organisations.

What Is Windows Server 2019?

Windows Server 2019 is the newest version of Microsoft’s operating system and is a popular choice for use in on-site data centres and cloud-based IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service) implementations. It acts as a bridge between your business and Azure, enabling you to modernise your applications and make the best of your infrastructure, whilst enjoying advanced multilayer security measures.

Benefits of using the latest version of Microsoft Windows Server

The advanced multi-layer security is a key advantage of Microsoft’s latest offering. Allowing you to protect your data centre effectively, the measures begin with the operating system itself. This version of Windows Server can be used with Windows Defender ATP Exploit Guard, which is a cloud-based service that provides continuous monitoring against attacks.

Thanks to the focus on Hybrid cloud deployments, the 2019 version allows you to get the best of cloud-native applications, as well as the optimisation of existing applications, thanks to its use of containers and microservices. Indeed, Microsoft is leading the field of innovation when it comes to containers. The operating system allows you to cut IT operational overheads and boost functionality, thanks to its smaller ServerCore image. In fact, the savings to virtual machine overheads are estimated at an impressive 50-80% with this version.

Choosing Microsoft Windows Server will also give you the advantage of a more sophisticated platform than open-source solutions such as Linux. However, there is a subsystem for Linux available, which can offer businesses a greater degree of integration of networks, file system storage and security protocols.

Management Functionality

A wide range of management tools are also at your disposal, with administrators able to choose between popular options such as PowerShell and Server Manager. This allows you to seamlessly migrate your Windows Server apps and Azure, saving you considerable time in comparison to AWS. Windows Admin Centre enables you to manage your Azure features as well as your on-site servers, and has the advantage of being accessible from anywhere with an internet connection.

Windows Admin Centre allows you to make the most of Azure’s superb cloud computing capabilities, such as storage and monitoring, as well as the essential back up and disaster recovery.

It’s clear, then, that the latest version of Microsoft Windows Server can offer your business a wide range of benefits. From advanced security measures to greater efficiency and leaner containers, all available at a cost-effective price, it makes an ideal choice for any organisation looking to optimise its hybrid-cloud environment.

Get in touch with us today to find out how Windows Server 2019 can benefit your business.
