Virtual Servers offer customers more flexibility when it comes to investing in server resources. Customers who buy server hardware often invest in a server that is too large, leading to wasted server resources and a poor return on investment. Under provisioning can also be costly and result in performance degradation and downtime.
Monitored, managed and maintained by the GridWay technical team, there is very little required of the customers’ IT administrators. A site to site VPN tunnel allows clients and/or a third party developer to manage the applications; otherwise everything is managed by the GridWay team. The Hosted Virtual Servers become an operational expense rather than a capital expense, potentially improving a company’s cash flow or capacity to dedicate funds to more pressing requirements.
Storage is accommodated through our redundant Storage Area Network (SAN) architecture and is allocated as needed. Simply tell us how much you need and GridWay will allocate the disk space. There is no need to overprovision and pay needlessly for storage – GridWay has the flexibility and agility to architect the storage solution that meets your changing needs.
