Private cloud is where PRO IT supply and host your servers which are dedicated to your business to provide you the ultimate independent service in the cloud solution. If you are seeking even further cost reductions colocation could be an option for you to consider. We can advise on the best way to do this to ensure your data is secure.
Dedicated Servers are not shared but standalone servers, as the word suggest dedicated to your business and only your business. You may have compliance requirements or just want an increased sense of peace of mind your data is safe, regardless of the reason PRO IT has a solution for you.
With a private hosted cloud, your business doesn’t share any hardware resources with others. If hosted onsite, the business is responsible for ongoing management, maintenance and updating of the data centre, and the servers might need to be updated over time. Private clouds could be considered more secure in some circumstances.
It also allows you to secure your data behind your own firewall and chosen security features. Your servers can be physically secured in the way you like, and you can refine the IT architecture to keep your sensitive data safe. As a result, your business could enjoy increased reliability.
Today, shared cloud servers are also secure and pose limited to no risk to business security. This type of hosting may however provide a cheaper solution than dedicated hosting options and may suit smaller businesses with a lesser “Server footprint”.
Servers are supported 24 x 7 x 365 by the PRO IT Global NOC and Helpdesk should the need arise and all ongoing maintenance including security updates, patches etc. are also part of the service. The infrastructure is monitored with alerting technology to ensure constant and seamless performance and uptime.
