While enterprise class cloud computing is a compelling alternative to traditional IT infrastructure and application delivery, the hosting and colocation model remains a very viable way for businesses to avoid the high expense of building and maintaining a data center to house critical IT infrastructure.
If moving to the cloud is on your roadmap but you are not quite ready to make the leap, we can help you bridge the gap. We will provide you with a roadmap to the cloud, including an opex model for colocation when it makes sense for your business, with a custom set of Managed Hosting services in a pure monthly fee model. When you are ready, we will let you move from your colocation contract to the Virtustream cloud at no exit cost. All hardware and licensing capex risk is ours.
Virtustream can provide continuous hands-on management for key functions like patch management, database administration, system management and on-site support at a fraction of what these services would cost you to provide with dedicated resources at committed service levels.
Get the right balance of control and leverage. We will provide you the space you need in our racks or for your racks and we will assist in all facets of the process including security and power management.
Cloud, hosting and colocation service quality depends on network connectivity. Virtustream offers comprehensive network services to ensure meet your connection requirements across a wide range of leading suppliers.
