Hosted services are the aspirin for your headache, the cure for what ails your IT infrastructure. Hosted services provide:
- Customized, budget-sensitive solutions for your IT support needs
- Reduced operating costs for your business
- Peace of mind
What Are Hosted Services?
There are multiple components to hosted services, but they all fit under the umbrellas of Software as a Service (SaaS), Hardware as a Service (HaaS), and Platform as a Service (PaaS). The combination of these elements provides comprehensive security, capacity, scalability, and access to state-of-the-art equipment, keeping your business operational in the most cost-effective and customized manner possible.
How Are Hosted Services Provided?
Hosted services are provided in a highly customized manner that may be different for every client. A client in the health industry may be singularly focused on backup and recovery as a means of protecting patient data; an oil-and-gas-industry client may need state-of-the-art hardware that they don’t have to think about or maintain but can still count on uptime. A corporate client may need a combination of services that provides maximum value for the investment. What makes hosted services the future of IT support in Calgary are the limitless customization options available to make the service suit your business needs and budget.
Why Does My Business Need Hosted Services?
The simple answer to this question is: “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.”
Security –From updating operating systems and spam filtering to eliminating viruses and preventing hackers from accessing your sensitive data and proprietary information, one of the most crucial roles of hosted services is to enhance security, increase uptime, and allow business leaders to maintain their focus on their clients, not on their IT.
Monitoring – Expert-level monitoring of equipment, software, applications, and servers to ensure that anything that might go wrong is stopped in its tracks.
Off-site Backup & Recovery – In this age of data breaches, nothing is more crucial than a secure network. Offsite backups are a must for every business, protecting organizations from the loss of data that occurs as a result of onsite server failures, cyber-attacks, or physical catastrophes such as fire, flood, theft, or vandalism.
Managed Email – One of the easiest ways to prevent security issues is to filter them out before they ever reach your business. Using a hosted email service provides an additional layer of security to every aspect of your operation.
