Cloud Staging & Networks

  1. 1. Cloud Staging and Network Services Not Your Average Colocation Solution The main drivers behind most colocation decisions have been flexibility and cost. As your requirements and assets grow, as they invariably do, so do the capital requirements and operating expenses incurred by the cost of new hardware, licenses, powering, cooling, and housing for your environment. Traditional colocation only removes the data center costs and enables you to control other related infrastructure costs and gain leverage from areas such as bandwidth and network versatility. There are many more options and benefits to a solution that goes beyond just colocation. Cloud Staging If moving to the cloud is on your roadmap but you are not quite ready to make the leap, we can help you bridge the gap. We will provide you with a roadmap to the cloud, including an an opex model for colocation when it makes sense for your business, with a custom set of Managed Hosting services in a pure monthly fee model. And, when you are ready, we will let you exit your contract to move to the Virtustream® IaaS at no exit cost! All of the hardware and licensing capex risk is ours. Don’t move until you are ready, but provide yourself the advantage of being set to go when it makes sense for your business. - Managed Hosting A Managed Hosting solution reduces the cost of traditional colocation by allowing you to leverage the economies of skill in our highly trained human assets. We can provide continuous hands-on, or smart hands, for key functions like patch management, database administration, system management and on-site support at a fraction of what these services would cost you to provision with dedicated resources at committed service levels. It also frees you from the constraints of a purely geography-driven colocation model. Colocation For many clients, this is the right balance of control and leverage. We will provide you the space you need in our racks or for your racks and we will assist in all facets of the process, including security and power management. Additionally, we offer highly competitive rack, power and bandwidth packages with a rapid contracting process to allow you the ability to fast track your colocation choice. Network Our pricing is highly competitive and your options are plentiful with our network services. We offer bandwidth in all possible configurations, starting as low as a single meg with multi-gigabyte bursting capabilities. We invite you to leverage our investments and our partners to help you redefine network expenses. DATA SHEET
