Managed public cloud: get on-demand cloud services to help grow your business

 

Get started with this easy to grow service.

Maximize your investment in the cloud without having to hire professional in-house staff to set up and manage your services. We will help you get started with a public cloud provider such as AWS® (Amazon Web Services), Microsoft Azure® or our own mindSHIFT public cloud.

We can help you navigate all aspects from initial assessment, build and deployment to compliance and disaster recovery, including management of security for administrators, users, and applications running on that cloud infrastructure.

The public cloud's pay-as-you-go model is cost effective if you're just beginning to use the cloud or are anticipating increased performance requirements which can help you save a large amount of capital expense in capacity planning.

With our cloud services you can gain a competitive edge and enable your employees and IT team to remain business-focused and agile while lowering your hosting infrastructure capital expense costs.
 
 

Managed private cloud: use the cloud with full control

 

Dedicated, customized resources at a fixed cost.

The managed private cloud option is the ultimate in scalability, security and control. Ideal for strict security and compliance requirements, the migration and consolidation of data and applications into a centralized, modern data center, or if you're looking to create a scalable platform for high volume, multi-tier, database driven applications.

Our private cloud options are powered by VMware® and provide single-tenant, custom-designed hosting with server, storage, and networking hardware from trusted vendors such as EMC®, Cisco®, and Dell® and are proactively managed 24x7x365 by our VMware certified professionals.

Be in complete control, as all elements of this service infrastructure can be customized to your business needs including the computer, communications, network, security, operating system, storage, switch and backup components.
 
 

Managed hybrid cloud: the best of both cloud worlds

 

Build a custom solution that utilizes both private cloud and public cloud services.

If you're like most organizations today, you have a rapidly growing amount of data and are in need of a scalable service that can handle increased bandwidth, storage, server CPU cycles and other key performance capacities. But, again like most organizations, you don't want to invest a fortune in capital expenses upfront but may not be ready or able to make a full data transfer to the cloud.

Gain the full benefits of a hybrid infrastructure by identifying and implementing your right mix of public cloud, private cloud and traditional IT.

We offer a customized hybrid solution that allows your business to take advantage of an agile environment sooner using the cloud while simultaneously winding down on-premise legacy systems, helping to improve efficiency, accelerate delivery of apps and services, and give your organizations the flexibility to combine your preferred cloud and existing on-premises infrastructure in a manner best suited to your organization.
 
 

Software-as-a-service: get easy access

 

Run employee applications from the cloud

Selecting and deploying business applications is a large undertaking for any business and can be a strain on employees and your IT team. However, if you're looking to speed up business processes and unload the task of application management — including adding new users to an application, implementing new updates, features or functionality, or completely deploying a new application, a software-as-a-service (SaaS) -based application may be right for you.

SaaS models allow applications to run from the cloud and are delivered directly to the end user with little to no downtime and minimal capital expenditures to you.

We offer several SaaS applications including:

  • Office 365
    Get the the same great Microsoft Office applications that you know and love, including Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, but with the added support and technology.
  • SharePoint
    Empower real-time collaboration as you share ideas, documents and information in one highly secured online hub.
  • Email exchange 2013
    Get the power of enterprise email hosts without managing it yourself. Email, calendars, contacts and more are always available at your fingertips.

Plus, because we know business happens outside of 9 to 5 , Monday through Friday, you'll get our unmatched live, U.S.-based tech support 24/7/365, available to all users.
