The Key Benefits of the service include:
Cost effectiveness- Cloud computing delivers high performance lower cost hosting. The platform provides a high level of fault tolerance at a much lower entry cost than stand alone servers - running costs are lower due to more efficient power consumption and the need to invest capital in fast depreciating hardware assets is removed.
Improved reliability and availability- Recovery times and the impact of hardware and software failures are vastly reduced due to the robust architecture of the cloud platform. It can eliminate the requirement for down-time during routine maintenance and deployment, configuration and upgrading is faster and less disruptive.
Massively scalable & flexible- The platform provides a high degree of flexibility in terms of scaling resources, up or down, to meet your needs. We can quickly assign more storage, memory or bring new servers into load balancing as quickly as your requirements change.
Peace of mind- We take care of capacity planning and upgrades of the underlying hardware so it provides a future proof solution, where you don’t need to worry about hardware reaching end of life or running out of resources. All services are monitored 24x7 for capacity, performance and faults and are supported by an ISO 20000 accredited Service Delivery function.
