Traditionally, businesses have had to build and maintain infrastructure to run on-the-premises applications. Now businesses can have applications that are hosted online, enabling them to lower their costs by paying only for what they use, enjoy seamless and painless upgrades in functionality, and integrate easily with their existing data and systems.
No matter how small or large, businesses rely more than ever on specialized applications to automate key operations. From simple productivity aids to mission critical business tools, organizations require constant and reliable access to their applications.
Let us help manage your infrastructure so you can focus on what’s important. We can help to build customized cloud solutions, based on leading cloud provider services, combining dedicated hardware, virtual servers and a private cloud. We also offer services to help you migrate, design, build, and manage your environment.
We support: AT&T Hosting Services, IBM Softlayer, and Equinix.

Racks will provide high bandwidth, ample power, simplified system deployment, and faster issue resolution. Each rack has 40 gigabits per second of connectivity right to it—20 gigabits per second to the private network, 20 gigabits per second to the public network—for exceptional and consistent network performance for every system.
