Guarantee availability with Managed Infrastructure
Availability of infrastructure is vital to organizations in a world of converged services and rapid transactions.
The impact of loss of service can have severe implications on daily business operations. Selecting a provider which can offer scalability on demand and service level agreement (SLA) backed solutions is critical to enabling growth.
This can be from engagement, including service implementation and procurement, or later during the service availability and growth. Services include monitoring, maintenance, patching and securing, configuring and even replacing or upgrading IT infrastructure, as required.
Ideal for organisations which either lack internal expertise and resources, or need to concentrate their resources and skills towards the core business solutions they operate.Download Product PDF

CDN - Deliver critical content - closer to your users (UNDER DEVELOPMENT)
A Content Delivery Network (CDN) is a geographically distributed network of servers that provide functions such as caching and acceleration.
A CDN can cache objects from an origin solution and then serve user requests from a nearby cache. Ordinarily, when a browser retrieves content from an Internet site, the browser simply fetches the content from the site itself. When a CDN is in use, the URL of the content points to the CDN rather than to the origin site.
The higher the latency between the user and the origin site, the better the potential performance improvement; 20% to 50% improvements are typical.
