Types of Managed Hosting Explained
Business owners and managers have to make a lot of tough decisions about their hosting and infrastructure needs. Some businesses do fine with cloud hosting alone. Others will need several solutions at the same time. For those companies, managed hosting provides an excellent option.
Managed Hosting Overview
Managed hosting helps business get back to business – that is, focusing on their core business while leaving the day-to-day management of your server infrastructure to the experts.
The level of managed hosting that you can obtain is quite vast. Some companies only need assistance with managing the system health, OS, backups etc. of a single server, while others need their entire server farm and VM’s managed with disaster recovery built in, enabling a highly available environment.
It’s ideal for those who need their infrastructure to support a lot of traffic or otherwise handle a heavy workload. That’s why tech-reliant industries such as the medical field and the financial sector often benefit from managed hosting. Because Wowrack is both a Microsoft Gold Level Partner and an Open Source supported community, we can offer you flexibility and a wide range of solutions.
The most basic level of management is no management at all. Most likely you’re managing your infrastructure yourself and hopefully have a team of 24/7/365, monitoring, mitigating and being proactive with any issues that may be going on. At Wowrack, we are staffed 24/7/365 with network engineers, system admins (tier’s 1-3), virtualization experts and more.
A co-managed environment usually involves helps from both the client and the service provider. Perhaps the client has a very sensitive application which only they can administer, but for everything else – they want nothing to do with and prefer to have a third party manage it. Wowrack gives our customers the flexibility they require to make the best use of their own internal resources, so they can focus on what matters most to them while Wowrack focuses on the dirty work.
Enterprise hosting is the perfect option if you need someone to fully manage your infrastructure from start to finish. For enterprise hosting, our team works around the clock to manage and update your service so that you never have to worry about it yourself. We provide design and architecture guidance plus constant monitoring so that you can be sure about your system’s security. We also run regular tests to keep everything running exactly as it should.
