Built-in Data Protection

Built-in Data Protection

Your data is hosted on a fault-tolerant Storage Area Network (SAN) with built-in protection that safeguards the information under any circumstances without performance impact.
Highly Availability Cloud Hosting

Highly Availability

High Availability (HA) is not an average computing service. HA reduces IT service unavailability in an event of OS or physical host failure. 95% of the Cloud services you'd find don't support it. We do! It is a value added service to your Hybrid Cloud.
Fault-Tolerant Hybrid Cloud

Fault-Tolerant Hybrid Cloud

Automated Fault-Tolerance eliminates the risk of a service outage. It provides continuous availability (100% uptime) for your Hybrid Cloud, workstations, applications and workloads.
