This notion of a truly scalable infrastructure, available on a simple, transparent, monthly subscription underpins all our offerings and allows us to provide affordable, enterprise class IT provision to businesses of all shapes and sizes. Learn how 's cloud can help you deliver all manner of IT services securely Hosted Virtual Desktop:A hosted desktop looks and acts exactly like a traditional PC but instead of residing locally, all software and data are housed in stateof-the-art data centers. Hosted desktops offer numerous advantages in terms of cost savings, security, resilience, flexibility and reduced management. Hosted Servers: Replacing the conventional concept of the dedicated or managed server.

2 hosted server Our infrastructure is built on a modular, virtualised basis to provide dynamic computing resources at the touch of a button. Scalable Expand resources as necessary. Access to your servers Simple Quick and easy to set-up. Web: hosted virtual servers represent the next generation of server environment, replacing the conventional concept of the dedicated or managed server. We provide server resources that look and act just like a dedicated server but, because we utilise a Grid and virtualisation computing system, they are scalable on demand, ready to meet the needs of your business at any given moment. You control the amount of resources you use but without having to pay for hardware when it s not needed. Infrastructure changes to your dynamic servers can be made at any time without the pains associated with moving from one physical server to another. We firmly believe that our dynamic servers are the most efficient way to run your applications, taking advantage of the latest developments in server and software technology to give you affordable access to an on-demand computing model. Dynamic servers and the Grid computing model challenge traditional infrastructure deployment methods by allowing companies to take some or all of their infrastructure off-site and benefit from lower TCO, higher performance and full scalability. They offer greater reliability than dedicated servers, which typically have multiple single points of failure, and are often old, legacy hardware, or even PCs recycled and reconfigured to act as a server. Furthermore they enable organisations to rapidly deploy new systems to address business needs and whilst reducing the associated capital and operational costs. Economical: Avoid paying for unnecessary resources whilst retaining the capacity to deal with spikes in demand. The flexibility of this model means you can avoid becoming locked into excessive hardware capacity without compromising your computing power. Immediately scalable: You can add and remove resources as and when you need them. Using this flexibility, you can avoid both expensive capital expenditure and lengthy tie-ins to leases or other long-term financial obligations. The burstable nature of our dynamic servers allows your organisation to plan for peak periods without having to pay for additional processing power when it s not needed. This means it s no longer necessary to over-subscribe to meet peak demand or to cope with unexpected events. Fully managed: We manage the patching, management and maintenance of your infrastructure. Our skilled and experienced team watch over your services day and night, letting you concentrate on running your business. Resources on demand: We understand that the effectiveness of the dynamic server model very much depends on its responsiveness to the changing needs of our customers. Seamlessly add resources to your infrastructure at the click of a button. Resilient: A world class server infrastructure without the associated costs. Our full disaster recovery provisioning, combined with a number of options for load-balancing implementations, gives you a real head start in the development of high-availability solutions V

3 hosted desktop Remove the burden of managing individual desktop environments in-house, leaving you to concentrate on growing your business. Scalable Expand resources as rnecessary. Access to your desktop Simple Quick and easy to set-up. Web: Hosted desktop technology is an innovative new method for delivering desktops to end users. Part of the cloud computing concept, a hosted desktop looks and acts exactly like a traditional PC. Hosted desktops offer numerous advantages in terms of cost savings, security, resilience, flexibility and reduced management. A hosted desktop is a fully-functioning remote workstation. Instead of being held on local hardware, all software and data is housed in our state-of-the-art data centres. This data is then sent via the internet, to an end-user s workstation (such as a PC or thin client), whilst industry-standard encryption ensures that no information can be accessed by external parties. Keystrokes and mouse movements are then relayed. All you need is a PC, laptop, thin client or mobile device and an internet connection, we do the rest. Because we provide you with a full Windows environment with all the functionality you d expect, you'd never know you weren t using a PC. Buying, setting up and maintaining PCs is an expensive exercise, especially when you factor in the associated management time and costs. Hosted Desktops remove this headache by providing you with a fullyfeatured desktop environment which you can connect to from anywhere via the internet in the office, at home, coffee shop or even abroad. Additional applications can be installed on demand, whilst we backup, manage and maintain the hosted desktops for you, ensuring they re available 24 /7. Economical: Rather than investing in depreciating assets, which require high CapEx initially and then continue to be a drain on your resources, choosing hosted desktops means you no longer have to splash out on PC infrastructure or office applications. Instead, a transparent subscription-per-user model ensures predictable costs and great value for money. Anywhere access: Wherever you are you can connect to YOUR hosted desktop. Our networks allow you secure access from any location you wish, which means that you can join colleagues as if you were in the office. Flexibility is a quality that can pay dividends internally too. Many businesses are now increasing productivity and gaining valuable loyalty by providing flexible working arrangements, including working from home. Home workers can gain access to their working environment, network and applications instantly, without the need for expensive VPN s or providing everyone with laptops. Remove risk and improve security: Our Hosted Desktop ensures business continuity and protects companies by removing data from the local hard drives of PC s and laptops (which can be compromised through loss, theft, hardware failure, fire or flood) and storing it in a secure data centre environment, where data is backed up on a daily basis and stored in geographically diverse locations for additional redundancy. Windows 7 & Office 2010: Hosted Desktop negates the requirement to invest capital in new PCs to support the introduction of Windows 7 and Office Migrate quickly with zero capex and minimal implementation resource V

4 hosted Get your work done anytime, anywhere. Reliable We promise always-available services with concrete SLAs. Secure Spam and virus protection as standard. Web: We host your off-site in a secure location, so you can continue to communicate with your clients in the event of a disaster. If you are looking for a secure, reliable platform for your business, hosted Microsoft Exchange presents the perfect solution. Hosted Microsoft Exchange lets organisations both large and small reap the benefits of using Microsoft Exchange in conjunction with Outlook, but without having to invest in costly internal infrastructure. Share your calendars, contacts, setup complex mail setups and use your BlackBerry. Microsoft Exchange is the world's foremost business system, enabling communication and collaboration for many of the biggest global organisations. Microsoft Exchange 2007 enhances company productivity through numerous advanced features, such as real-time-synchronised , files, calendars and contacts; mobile access on handheld devices; advanced web mail; shared calendars that let employees see colleague availability to schedule meetings, book conference rooms and plan projects; shared task lists that allow 'to do' lists to be created and assigned, then shared with team members; synchronised contacts which guarantee your personal address book will never be lost or misplaced, either on your PC or your mobile phone. is stored centrally on managed servers across multiple data centres, providing redundancy and fast connectivity from This gives users access to their , calendar, contacts and shared files by a variety of means, including Outlook and Outlook Web Access (OWA), both of which are provided for free. Our Exchange Pack lets you start using MS Exchange with minimum investment in terms of time and money. Economical: pass on the economies of scale we enjoy to provide you with an enterprise class platform at a per-user cost that s far lower than maintaining, deploying and supporting and solution in-house. Anywhere access: Access our Hosted Exchange from anywhere, whether you re at home, in the office, on the move or anywhere else with an internet connection. Enhanced security: Each Exchange mailbox is protected from the threat of spam and viruses by our integrated security platform. Each mailbox comes with its own, fully configurable online quarantine, to prevent harmful messages reaching your computer whilst ensuring you never miss any important mail. Reliability and performance: Our stateof-the-art grid infrastructure provides unparalleled performance. We back our promise of always-available services with concrete SLAs that ensure we stick to our word. Aggregateable Storage: Our Exchange mail includes a generous amount of storage, which can be pooled amongst your users, enabling you to save more of your critical business correspondence. Free client licenses: Our hosted Exchange service includes a free copy of Outlook 2007 or Entourage 2008 for all mailbox users in your company. This is a major advantage for hosting versus in-house Exchange 2007, which no longer includes Outlook V

5 Why switch from traditional IT to the cloud? There are many reasons why organisations of all sizes and types are adopting this model of IT. It provides a way to increase capacity or add capabilities on the fly without investing in new infrastructure, training new personnel, or licensing new software. Ultimately, it can save companies a considerable amount of money. Removal / reduction of capital expenditure Companies can avoid spending large amounts of capital on purchasing and installing their IT infrastructure or applications by moving to the cloud model. Capital expenditure on IT reduces available working capital for other critical operations and business investments. Cloud computing offers a simple operational expense that is easier to budget for month-bymonth, and prevents money being wasted on depreciating assets. Reduced administration costs IT solutions can be deployed extremely quickly and managed, maintained, patched and upgraded remotely by. Technical support is provided round the clock for no extra charge, reducing the burden on IT staff. This means that they are free to focus on business-critical tasks, and businesses can avoid incurring additional manpower and training costs. Improved resource utilisation Combining resources into large clouds reduces costs and maximises utilisation by delivering resources only when they are needed. Businesses needn t worry about overprovisioning for a service whose use does not meet their predictions, or under-provisioning for one that becomes unexpectedly popular. Economies of scale Companies exploiting Cloud computing can benefit from economies of scale, use large-scale data centres operating at much higher efficiency levels, and multi-tenant architecture to share resources between many different customers. This model of IT provision allows us to pass on savings to our customers. Scalability on demand Scalability and flexibility are highly valuable advantages offered by cloud computing, allowing companies to react quickly to changing IT needs, by adding or subtracting capacity and users as and when required andresponding to real rather than projected requirements. Quick and easy implementation Without the need to purchase hardware, software licences or implementation services, a company can get its cloud-computing arrangement off the ground in minutes. hosted services Helps smaller businesses compete Cloud computing has made it possible for smaller companies to compete on an even playing field with much bigger competitors. Renting IT services instead of investing in hardware and software makes them much more affordable, and means that capital can instead be used for other vital projects. Quality of service offer 24/7 customer support and an immediate response to emergency situations. Guaranteed uptime, SLAs offer reliability and guaranteed service levels to ensure your applications and/or services are always online and accessible. Anywhere Access Cloud-based IT services let you access your applications and data securely from any location via an internet connection. It s easier to collaborate too; with both the application and the data stored in the cloud, multiple users can work together on the same project, share calendars and contacts etc. It has been pointed out that if your internet connection fails, you will not be able to access your data. However, due to the anywhere access nature of the cloud, users can simply connect from a different location so if your office connection fails and you have no redundancy, you can access your data from home or the nearest Wi-Fi enabled point. Disaster recovery / backup Recent research has indicated that around 90% of businesses do not have adequate disaster recovery or business continuity plans, leaving them vulnerable to any disruptions that might occur. can provide an array of disaster recovery services, from cloud backup (allowing you to store important files from your desktop or office network within their data centres) to having ready-to-go desktops and services in case your business is hit by problems.
