Cloud computing enables small to midsize businesses (SMBs) to gain access to enterprise-class technologies without the significant investments those solutions demand. Atlantic-IT.net has developed cloud services that deliver the benefits of cloud computing backed by our unmatched service and support.
Atlantic-IT.net’s Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) solution includes everything a small business needs — server, storage, networking and other fundamental computing resources — hosted in a carrier-class co-location facility. The entire environment is fully managed and supported by Atlantic-IT.net’s skilled professionals.
Organizations tap into these IT services for a monthly fee. Gone are the capital investments and headaches associated with maintaining an IT infrastructure, and the challenge of scaling the environment to meet changing business requirements.
Because the IaaS solution is available from anywhere on any device, it provides flexibility, mobility and a hedge against disaster. The IaaS environment can also be used as a “warm” disaster recovery site that can sustain operations in the event of a power outage, system failure, natural disaster or other emergency.
