End of Summer Road Trip & G Suite

I recently drove back to my home state of Iowa to spend time with family, enjoy a local Norwegian festival, and watch Ragbrai participants bike across the state.  As I drove through Colorado, Nebraska, and most of Iowa, I enjoyed seeing the road signs of towns and cities that are Tempus Nova customers utilizing G Suite – Town of Wiggins, CO; Yuma, CO; Worth County, IA; University Heights, IA; as well as the State of CO and the State of IA.  

At Tempus Nova, we specialize in public sector Google Cloud solutions and here are some benefits that Google offers public sector Customers:

  • Affordable Cloud Solutions – Unlike Google competitors, G Suite is an affordable and secure cloud messaging and collaboration solution that is priced on a per month or per annual basis.  Google remains very cost competitive offering unlimited data in Google’s cloud for only $120 per user per year.  Google also recently released the G Suite for Enterprise product that provides enterprise customers with unlimited data, advanced Data Loss Prevention, and advanced administrator and reporting capabilities.                                                                                                                                                                       
  • Google Vault – Many of our public sector customers are required to retain employee data for a certain amount of time (i.e., 5 years, 7 years and indefinitely).  Vault is Google’s eDiscovery and legal archiving solution, and enables organizations to retain, hold, search, and export data.  Use Vault audit reports to learn about actions Vault users have taken during a specified period of time.  Vault is entirely web-based, so there’s no need to install or maintain any software.                                                                                                                            
  • Secure Data Centers –  Google invests billions of dollars in their infrastructure and technology and bakes security protections into their products (e.g., G Suite is FedRAMP compliant).  Google runs its data centers using servers they built on a custom operating system and file system.  Each of these systems has been optimized for security and performance.  Since Google controls the entire hardware stack, they are able to quickly respond to any threats or weaknesses that may emerge. Google’s application and network architecture is designed for maximum reliability and uptime with ZERO DOWNTIME!  Data is distributed across Google’s servers and data centers.  If a machine fails or even an entire data center, your data will still be accessible.  Fun fact:  Google is the world’s third largest manufacturer of servers and they don’t sell a single one!
