The Bloom Group has been supporting our community for over 50 years. Since 1961, The Bloom Group has led many of our community’s most progressive social services to reduce homelessness, provide end-of-life care for individuals with mental health challenges and addictions, ensure women-led families in crisis can stay together as they rebuild their lives, and much more. Our ‘low-barrier’ services are inclusive and available to all individuals in need, regardless of their circumstances, and without conditions. Our broad and positive impact is a reflection of our staff’s hard work and dedication.
The Bloom Group was challenged with aging servers, switches, and network equipment. Managing their IT requirements was becoming a daily task of fixing issues. They knew they needed to make changes, however they were not sure of the best way to move forward.
The Solution – Cloud Transition
The MultiTrends team met with The Bloom Group and determined that our Cloud Services would be a great alternative to traditional severs. This solution allows full secure access and support for their 13 locations company data. Multitrends Implemented cloud services by virtualizing their Data Servers and installing them in our off site data center. This would save The Bloom Group a considerable amount of money and resources by eliminating the expense of having to invest in new hardware, software, and the associated setup costs involved.
Moving to cloud computing has proven to be a great decision. The Bloom Group has noticed a dramatic effect in their computing speeds, improved efficiency, a robust network, with a fully backed up redundant server environment. They no longer need to be responsible for IT.
Businesses that are interested in using Cloud Computing and want to keep their data at their location have the option to use a Hybrid Cloud.
Top 3 benefits of a Hybrid Cloud
1) Data Security management
Without data a business will halt in its tracks. With the use of a Hybrid Cloud the businesses sensitive data is protected behind their firewall outside of the public cloud.
2) Ability to leverage both Public & Private Cloud
With the Hybrid Cloud a business has the ability to place non sensitive data in a Public Cloud, and sensitive data in a Private Cloud. This allows staff & owners with specific permissions to access the data depending on their position.
The Cloud creates the ability to subscribe to your software with Software as a Service and hardware with Infrastructure as a Service. When a business expands it must buy hardware and software for staff.
Using the Cloud it can be purchased as a subscription allowing the business to add/reduce software and hardware allowing scalability with ease.

The Fraser Property Management Team provides management services to single family residential, strata titled residential, apartment buildings and commercial & industrial real estate throughout Maple Ridge, Pitt Meadows, Mission , Langley , Burnaby and the Tri-City area.
Fraser Property Management was using aging servers. This lead the company to experience a wide range of issues. Including outages, slowness, storage issues, and unreliable backs ups of company data. These problems led to a considerable amount of downtime and loss of company data. Staff and management would regularly be without basic tools required to carry out their daily operations. This situation was causing a substantial impact on productivity. Action had to be taken. This in turn led to another problem. Replacing and modernising their current infrastructure would come at a considerable cost to the company. The replacement of this infrastructure would also cause further disruption to their business.
The Solution – Cloud Transition
