Increase security and flexibility with a Managed Server
There are many reasons why businesses are moving their infrastructure to a managed service. These include increased flexibility, scalability, collaboration, security, and changing from upfront to monthly payments.
You can utilise managed ervers to address a number of business requirements;
- Move physical servers to a managed service at the server end of life.
- Host line of business applications securely for ease and speed of remote access.
- Remote Desktop Services – safeguard company data by users accessing a hosted desktop.
- Rapid provision of services.
- Data centre connectivity for file access, uptime and resiliency.
Managed servers can be configured to provide levels of performance, security and control like those of a dedicated server. But instead of being hosted on physical hardware that’s solely used by you, they reside in a shared “virtualised” environment that’s works as a managed service.
Why move to a Managed Service?
- Opex not Capex Model – no more expensive outlay for hardware
- Optimised hardware and scalability – no longer pay for un-used capacity
- Staff resource allocation – Moving to a managed service frees up your staff from maintaining and monitoring hardware
- A cloud to fit your business needs – Public, Private and Hybrid dependent on how mission-critical your operations are.
- Business continuity – no need to worry about server hardware failure, your business consumes the resources it requires with 100% uptime.
- Security – employees are the most likely source of a security lapse, with a managed service you access information regardless of where it is stored.
- Flexibility and scalability – flexibility to scale up and down according to demand, all the time only paying for what you are using.
