Hosted Server Solutions
Servers come in a variety of different options and it is important that you choose the best solution for your company. We will work with you to determine your optimum solution based on your requirements and budget.
Your choices include:
- A hosted virtual server which gives you the benefit of having a server at a greatly reduced cost as you share it and the cost of its maintenance with other people. Individuals and most small businesses find hosted virtual servers ideal to meet their needs.
- A dedicated server owned and managed by us is a cost-effective solution that is more suited for businesses with high traffic or specific intensive tasks. It offers great savings when compared to buying and managing your own server.
- A hosted monitoring server is a server that runs web applications from your cloud server and is suitable for larger businesses who want to monitor their servers, PC network and the programs on it. These servers can save you coordination headaches and ensure peak performance.
- A hosted SQL server is another option that requires more resources than a regular server and serves as the backend for an array of programs.
We will help you navigate through the various options.

A hosted desktop (or hosted virtual desktop) is a virtual machine that hosts the operating system, applications, data and other system configurations of a physical desktop. It provides similar functionality and capabilities as a physical desktop for a fraction of the cost and can be accessed by any internet enabled device. They can save you money while giving you and your staff mobility and improved sharing and communication.
Hosted desktops are ideal for expanding businesses and those looking to reduce their IT overheads. They allow you to streamline your IT administration including security and software updates. Also, a thin client (a small and efficient desktop terminal with no hard drive) is much cheaper than buying a traditional desktop computer. Thin clients allow you to rapidly scale-up your business with minimum outlay for new IT equipment and infrastructure.
