IT Management

What Does "Fully Managed" Mean?

If you are responsible for the performance of a high-traffic on-line Internet service, you no doubt need to be operating in a reliable, dedicated server environment. In order to be reliable, the dedicated server or cluster you need must be properly managed. This includes management of hardware, operating systems, applications, e-commerce, security, data backup, disaster recovery, reporting, monitoring, database management, connectivity, bandwidth and load balancing.

DataHive staff keeps up-to-date with current technology and knows the importance of maintaining mission-critical support, but the biggest advantages are flexibility, attention to detail and economy in Internet operation costs.

DataHive will help you determine exactly what you’ll need and the appropriate choices relating to your operating system, hardware options, IP addresses, bandwidth, software configurations, firewall and security options and control panels.

DataHive offers full redundancy, carrier neutral connectivity with a 99.999% up-time record and its Network Operations Centre (NOC) is located in one of North America's safest and secure locations.

For many companies, the answer lies in how well they are keeping up with their growing server needs. If your business requires expansion of internal IT resources, it’s probably a good time to explore DataHive’s Managed Hosting options. Or better yet, don't wait for a bottleneck before you get up to speed on what’s available to you.

All things considered, by choosing DataHive's professionally Managed Hosting services you avoid the need for costly internal resources and highly skilled IT staff, and achieve cost effective savings with excellent value for a busy and rapidly growing business.
