Managed Hardware Hosting

Managed hosting is an IT provisioning model in which a service provider leases dedicated servers and associated hardware to a single client. The equipment is at the hosting provider’s facility and managed there by the service provider,in the fact that the day-to-day management and maintenance of the servers is handled by the hosting provider rather than by the clients themselves.

Server Monitoring – This is the process of scanning the servers in search of any irregularities or potential failures; when done in a timely fashion, these problems can be rectified before they develop into major issues or service disruption.

Security – This includes virus scanning, spam filtering, firewall configuration and operating system updates in addition to standard physical data centre security measures. Security is important on any computer system/network, but it is especially important when dealing with personal or business critical data and information.

Full Back-up and Storage – A company losing data can be costly in every sense of the word; it can cause a loss of money, time and customer trust. For these reasons, it is vital that all critical or personal information is backed up and stored securely. Managed Hosting Providers are far more likely to have both the physical and technical capabilities in place to carry out the back-up/storage process correctly.

Server Configuration and Maintenance – Managed hosting providers can offer specialist staff with the expertise to ensure that the hosting solution is initially configured to meet the customer’s requirements effectively and subsequently, to perform the necessary server maintenance to keep the platform running smoothly.

Support – An attractive benefit of managed hosting is that – if there ever is an issue – there is always qualified support on hand. In ideal cases, companies make human telephone support available 24/7/365, however in some, support is offered via email.
