Cloud and Hosted Computing
In a highly dynamic economy, businesses are faced with a whole new set of challenges, especially with their IT infrastructure. Controlling costs while making sure you have the resources you need at your fingertips is not always easy. Additionally, as your company grows, adding IT resources to support your staff can be expensive and painful.
Continuous cycle of hardware and software upgrades
Cost of support and maintenance
Staff demanding more mobility to be able to work from anywhere
Limited or no redundancy
The ability to add IT resources on demand without breaking the bank
Your users log on and use our servers to do their day to day work. They can log on to those servers wherever they have a high speed Internet connection and work with the same resources they use in the office, therefore increasing productivity and availability. Your users and applications will be running on a "farm" of redundant servers so that no one server failure will cause your staff down time. We maintain the hardware and Microsoft software for you so you always have the resources you need with no additional cost. Through a special agreement with Microsoft, we provide Microsoft Office Professional for your users allowing them always use the most current software without the upgrade costs. Adding additional resources for your staff is as easy a phone call. Because we maintain all the server hardware and Microsoft Office software, you don't have to, resulting in a budget that is predictable and a cost savings to you.
For companies that have a geographically diverse staff, hosted services is a perfect solution. No more messy VPNs with slow or limited access. Everyone of your staff will be logging in to the same system and working the same way wherever they are. A home office user in Seattle will have access and resources that the corporate users in Texas have.
Every business has a set of custom applications that are part of their IT infrastructure. These applications can also run in our hosted services environment*. We will test your applications and deploy them as part of your virtual IT infrastructure.
