Solutions Designed Specifically for Your Business, Which Enables You to Retain Control of Your IT Infrastructure.
Our methodically designed delivery model applies best practice principles to Managed Hosting with solutions engineered by experts who focus on repeatability, and provide the highest levels of quality, performance and value. You are able to offload the essential maintenance of your backend systems to our certified technical professionals, so your IT infrastructure gains

Managed Hosting is taken to a new level of professionalism by adopting a proactive methodology that goes beyond the typical reactive support mentality of other providers. That means in-depth business and technology planning sessions, systems architecture designed to fit your needs, proactive management and protection of your IT systems for maximum performance, and regular reports and reviews of the health of your systems to discover new ways to improve the effectiveness of your infrastructure.
Our Methodology Encompasses Four Key Phases:
Assess – Every managed hosting client starts with an in-depth business and technology planning session that establishes our relationship based on a thorough understanding of your business and technology goals. We examine your current and future business expectations and how they will impact your technology needs. The result is an IT implementation plan that aligns with your business requirements and includes alternate scenarios should circumstances change.
Design – Based on your business/technology goals we develop a comprehensive design of your systems architecture that will satisfy your specific needs today and tomorrow. We build your infrastructure from the ground up putting together the optimal solution from our world-class data centers, network and team of IT experts. At the same time, we develop the processes that define how we will work together as an extension of your IT team.
Maintain – Our dedicated team of certified and seasoned IT experts provide industry specific experience with Internet-based businesses to proactively advise and manage your account.

Measure – Managed Hosting, measurement is built into our IT best practices so that we have the necessary benchmark data to properly report the status of IT systems along with critical trends that contribute to anticipating and preparing for future changes. We schedule regular reports as well as quarterly “white-board” meetings to review results and explore ways to improve operating procedures and technology performance.
