Cloud / Hosted Solutions & Software as a Service
Few companies have the necessary time and resources to manage all of their IT systems effectively. As hardware ages, failures can occur causing downtime that could impact on your ability to meet ever tighter timescales.
RedSky have the answer in providing you with a solution that you use over the internet, eliminating the need for any management of servers, software, updates, or backups. We offer two types of hosting service.
- Hosted Solutions
- Software as a Service
You can purchase any of our Summit range of product with the hosted option. This means that instead of purchasing your own hardware and installing the software on it and then needing to maintain it, the software is installed on hardware in multiple secure data centers to provide disaster recovery. The backup process and software upgrade process is handled by ourselves. You connect to the system over the internet in a secure manner .
Software as a Service (SaaS)
The Summit 1000 and 3000 products are also available as software as a service. With the SaaS option instead of purchasing the software solution, you simply pay a monthly service fee per user seat you require, the solution is hosted in the same way as the hosting option above and all the management of the servers and backups is included in the service.
Benefits of Hosting
With RedSky IT hosting you not only remove the overhead costs of buying, installing, and maintaining your own server but also;
- RedSky IT will manage the overnight backups of your system automatically ensuring the backups are verified each morning.
- RedSky IT will apply ALL server upgrades and patches.
- Our Hosted Servers are mirrored. In the event that we encounter a hardware problem we can quickly and simply switch your processing to our stand by server.
- You can access your system from virtually anywhere providing you have a broadband connection (subject to security configuration). This means that your company would be able to access this system from a home PC should that be necessary e.g. power cut, fire, flood etc. at your office.
RedSky IT has been providing this service for some years and have a proven track record in supporting customers via this method.
Jenny Smith of J.E.T. Construction in Milton Keynes says:
The Summit system is secure, easy to use, and I have the confidence that the system is all ways accessible either in the office or at home, which gives me the option to work from either location when the need arises. Managing system updates, legislative changes, and daily backups is a chore we no longer have to worry about as RedSky IT maintain the solution at their hosting centre, this is a great benefit. I also find the support I receive from the RedSky support team to be excellent and would recommend this system and service to anyone.
