Hosted services are outsourced information technology (IT) systems and functions. A hosted service provider owns and oversees infrastructure, software and administrative tasks and makes the system available to clients, usually over the Internet. All hardware and software is owned, maintained, updated and backed-up by a third-party hosting provider, freeing the end user from having to spend tens of thousands of dollars on purchasing hardware and software for the office, constantly monitoring data availability, and ensuring software updates are installed.
Cloud-Based solutions are helping businesses offload costly equipment needs and staff by setting up instantly accessible communications on secure third-party servers. Push key tasks like your company website, operations applications, accounting software, multi-point E-mail, databases and back-up to hosted services.
Anything that you may need a server for can be hosted offsite reducing your need to invest high dollars on equipment that will be outdated within months of purchase. All Hosted Services are consistently maintained and run on the most recent platforms, operating software and security programs. Our staff can assist you with moving your business systems out of your office and into a secure cloud environment and provide a state-of-the-art data center, certified engineers, a 24/7 help desk, and more!
Our 3 key hosted services include Hosted Desktop, Hosted Applications, and Hosted Exchange.
- Hosted Desktop is a new, rapidly growing form of online desktop computing for businesses because of its speed, reliability, and increased security.
- Hosted Applications are software applications where the software resides on servers that are accessed through the Internet instead of the more traditional software that is installed on either a local server or on individual PCs. Hosted Application models continue to expand because of its faster access to the Internet and more reliable, ‘always on’ connections.
- Hosted Exchange allows your email, calendar, and contacts server to be installed and managed in the cloud, as a service. With a hosted Exchange solution, there’s no need to install a new application in your office or attempt to integrate this new system into the company’s existing infrastructure. A hosted approach also eliminates the up-front expense of having to buy expensive hardware and software, the need to hire additional personnel to maintain and upgrade the servers or train an existing IT staff on the new technology.
