Full-featured, enterprise-grade IT infrastructure that grows with your business.
Unlike a traditional IT infrastructure (in which computer hardware is physically located within the office), the hardware in a Cloud infrastructure is located off-site (in a datacenter). Using only a PC and an internet connection, clients gain access to a full-featured enterprise-grade IT infrastructure (telephony, email, files and backup, mobile messaging, and remote access), while paying only for the resources consumed.
Axia’s Managed Hosting Platform is racked with high-end computer equipment (within our datacenter) for clients to run their businesses on. Engineering staff handle all the operational aspects: monitoring the systems, software patches / upgrades and technical support. Everything is enterprise-grade, designed for maximum reliability and security (far more secure and of much higher performance than that of a typical small/mid-size business network).
Since Cloud is fully-managed off-site (24 hours a day, 365 days a year), it can be far more cost-effective than deploying and supporting an IT infrastructure in-house. The infrastructure is “rented,” so there are no up-front hardware costs. There’s also no burden of high cooling/electricity costs, of dedicating valuable real estate space to hardware storage, and no need to hire/retain IT personnel to support hardware on-site.
Consumption is billed on a utility basis (by resources consumed, like electricity) with little or no upfront cost, making Cloud particularly attractive to start-ups for whom deploying a new infrastructure in-house may be expensive.
Elasticity: IT “On Tap”
Value is also found in Cloud’s elasticity —your can have as much or as little of a service as needed— making it easily and infinitely scalable for business growth. Notify us of your scalability needs and the adjustments can be made seamlessly and quickly on the back-end —a particularly powerful tool in times of downsizing.
Not only does Cloud provide remote VPN access for users in the field, it also doubles as a Disaster Recovery / Business Continuity program. Since data is stored off-site, even if a casualty were to take place at your primary place of business, your data would be unaffected and employees could continue working using any internet-connected PC in the world.
