What is Cloud Server?
Cloud Server is an enterprise-grade cloud application infrastructure that delivers ideal performance, availability and data protection for SMBs. With a 99.999% SLA, and firewall and VPN included standard, Cloud Server provides all the elements a small business needs.
Cloud Server delivers far more value to your business than on-premise servers, which suffer from unpredictable performance —to say nothing of high CAPEX and OPEX. At the same time, Cloud Server stands apart from other clouds because it’s designed specifically for SMBs. It offers predictable costs, familiar technologies, a 99.999% SLA, and full control over your cloud environments. Firewall and VPN come standard. Best of all, it’s pre-configured to integrate with all your other Technology and Beyond services.
Cloud Server ensures value by letting you find the perfect balance between configurability, scalability and price.
Cloud Server focuses your time on assets, not infrastructure. Provisioning takes minutes, and virtual machines are pre-configured to integrate with your other Technology and Beyond services.
Our control panel centralizes dashboards for simplified management as well as familiar tools for granular control over your cloud environment.
With the Technology and Beyond onboarding process and exceptional support, you end up with a worry free and reliable solution.
