Your data will be stored on a dedicated Amazon EC2 virtual server running Windows Server 2019.
Your Windows desktops will be configured as Amazon Workspaces that you can access securely from a wide variety of computing devices (computers, tablets, browsers).
Each desktop will come with Newton, Microsoft 365 Business Standard (email and office apps), Bitdefender, a 10 GB user volume, and the needed computing capacity to run Newton.
Each desktop will come with Bitdefender to deliver comprehensive, ongoing, realtime protection against software threats like viruses, malware and spyware across email, apps, the cloud and the web.
Desktop user volumes are backed up every 12 hours and can be restored from the last backup.
Your Newton data will be backed up daily on Amazon S3 each day and kept for seven days across multiple systems so that your data is available when needed and protected against failures, errors, and threats.
When you are in the cloud, you won’t need a local server, firewall, backups.
Your cloud systems will be configured, managed and monitored by the same Agency Systems support team giving you a single point of contact for support when you need it.
Frequently Asked Questions
In the past, most Newton customers hire a local IT company to install and manage a server, computer(s), firewall, software, antivirus, and backup systems. With Newton in the Cloud, we provide all of this equipment, software and services in the Amazon Web Services cloud. All you need in your local office is an internet connection and a simple, thin client (inexpensive computer, laptop, Chromebook, tablet or zero client).
You do not need to purchase Newton in the Cloud to run Newton. It can be installed on your own network, on a third party hosting provider’s system or in our Agency Systems / AWS cloud.
The cost for Newton in the Cloud is not included in the monthly support fees for Newton.
The cloud system eliminates the need for you to have servers, computers, firewalls, antivirus, software, technical support, upgrades, backups, etc. in your office. We move all of these to the cloud and provide the IT support you need.
Newton support will provide most of the IT support that you need with your cloud system. However, you may still need local support for physical hardware issues.
This solution is built upon Amazon Web Services (AWS), the world’s most comprehensive and broadly adopted cloud platform. AWS is architected to be the most flexible and secure cloud computing environment available today.

You will be able to access securely from any location (office, home, coffee shop, airport, etc.) and from a wide variety of computing devices (computers, tablets, etc.). We have partnered with AWS to ensure that we’re using best practices to configure and monitor your cloud system.
