From Storage Closet to Data Center: Transitioning to the Cloud (A True Story)

It really is true – the most successful businesses often have surprisingly humble beginnings. Take, for instance, the Buckley Jolley Real Estate Team based in Livingston County, Michigan. The 10-employee business relied on Chris Jolley, the tech-savvy son of co-owner Karen Jolley, to maintain the company server and perform nightly backups of the data. When Chris Jolley decided to leave the company, his final task was to find his replacement.

Some Benefits of Managed Server Hosting You May Not Have Considered

A large corporation often has the money, time and employees available to maintain an internal server’s infrastructure.

Service Spotlight: Managed Hosting

A full-service managed hosting option means your servers are always available

In a previous Service Spotlight, we discussed the advantages of a Private Cloud – i.e. cloud applications running on dedicated hardware. Our dedicated servers allow full client access, of course, but if you want the best ease of use, you should consider Managed Hosting as an add-on to your server package.  Managed Hosting is simply an arrangement by which a service provider like Atlantic.Net can take care of the day-to-day maintenance, troubleshooting and technical support required to keep your servers online. And of course, we’re on-site if anything goes wrong.

Managed Hosting is our way of extending the many benefits of cloud computing to as large a number of clients as possible. One of the great benefits of cloud computing – in fact, the key benefit – is that you don’t have to manage a physical, dedicated server. Instead, you can simply obtain the functions of that server through a cloud interface. However, some businesses are required to maintain their own dedicated hardware, and some simply prefer to know that there’s a dedicated machine assigned to their business. For situations like these, Managed Hosting bridges the gap – allowing you to have a dedicated server without dedicating yourself to monitoring, upgrading, troubleshooting and replacing it.

Some of the key benefits of Managed Hosting with Atlantic.Net are:

  • 100% uptime for your servers with our Uptime Guarantee
  • One hour guaranteed replacement of failed hardware
  • Management and maintenance of server hardware
  • 24x7x365 troubleshooting and support
  • Patches and updates for server OS
  • Bi-weekly security scans to detect any vulnerabilities
  • Unlimited daily secure backup, archiving for at least 1 month

Our dedicated servers use only the best commercial-grade components and can be configured to meet your exact specifications. If pure cloud computing isn’t the right fit for you, we can still provide much of the same support and ease of use, saving you money and freeing you to focus on growing your business.
