Running Business Critical software is more than just buying a server. With a360inc’s hosted solutions, you get more including automatic redundancy at every level which means your application, your data and your business are protected. With a hosted platform solution, you'll have a "Primary Server", the server which runs your applications when things are normal. You'll also get a “DR server” that protects you against all manner of business disrupting events, from power outages, telecommunication systems failures, natural disasters to events like 9-11. Beyond that, you'll have a 3rd copy of your data that is stored in secure facilities, outside of the normal production data center facilities. This protects you, not only against an unthinkable national disaster, but also keeps your data safe from emerging threats such as Ransomeware. All this protection keeps you in business, when others may succumb to events that prevent them from running their applications.
It's dark inside
Running an application seems simple at the surface. However, hosting applications at an enterprise level brings with it a need to employ highly advanced infrastructure to make sure the application is available when YOU need it. With a360inc’s advanced hosted platform, we manage hardware and supporting infrastructure that guarantees 99.99% uptime, meaning your application is available when you need to use it. Even if your office is in the middle of the biggest utility outage of the century. Grab a mobile device running CaseAware Mobile and you’ll be able to access and use your case management software. You don’t have to worry about installing generators, and/or battery banks, or contracting with vendors to provide backup utility services. You aren’t tied to facilities that have enough space and utility capacity to support running a small data center. We’ve taken care of that. We’re here, and the lights are on.
