1 managed servers - why choose a managed service provider? Do you have the highest levels of security, redundancy, reliability, infrastructure and technical expertise necessary to operate your Internet operations? In order to deliver 100% uptime, you need to ensure that your servers deliver the availability, security and performance that your customers demand. There are a number of potential problems and risks that can impact the operation of your site. In addition to failures in systems, platforms, applications, operating systems and operating infrastructures, slow site performance or unavailable services can negatively affect both customer perception and loyalty and can have a disastrous effect on company profitability. Do you have the highest levels of security, redundancy, reliability, infrastructure and technical expertise necessary to manage your Internet operations? Housing your servers in a regular office setting runs the serious and common risk of security threats, power outages and fire, to name a few. As well, managing, maintaining and monitoring your network on a 24/7/365 basis takes time, skill and technical expertise. The most feasible solution is to choose a Data Center with the infrastructure, capabilities and technical expertise to build, deploy and manage your Internet operations. By outsourcing to a Data Center provider with the security, redundancy, reliability, infrastructure and technical expertise to keep your business up and running 24/7/365, you can remain focused on your core business and deliver continuous and reliable service to your customers.

2 managed servers - benefits Managed servers eliminate the need for buying, maintaining and supporting one s own Internet server and offer system-level administration and support, comprehensive Internet infrastructure and extensive services that relieve IT departments of many critical, but costly responsibilities. These services typically include advanced monitoring, load balancing, elevated security and redundancy, data storage and industryleading technical expertise. The provider owns the Data Center, the network, server and other devices and is responsible for installing, maintaining and monitoring them. The customers retain full control of their operating systems and applications. Have you considered how managed servers could contribute to your bottom line? Managed hosting is a cost-effective way for companies needing 100% network uptime, responsiveness, technical expertise and a secure, high-end infrastructure. Even if you have your own in-house IT staff, managed servers can actually help you increase control by keeping your IT resources focused on the business goals and objectives that contribute to the bottom line. If you ve tracked the amount of time you or your IT department has spent on managing, maintaining and trouble-shooting your network, you know that the daily time commitment is significant. How often does your IT staff have to put aside the important projects to put out fires? By having a managed service provider manage, monitor and maintain your network, you can relieve your IT department from daily, often tedious, and time-consuming tasks. And, you can avoid costly infrastructure investments, thereby concentrating on your strategic objectives and goals.

3 managed servers - choosing the right facility In addition to ensuring that your managed service provider operates a Data Center with the highest levels of security, redundancy, reliability and infrastructure necessary to house your servers, it is important to make sure that the provider has experienced personnel to facilitate the configuration, monitoring and maintenance of your equipment. Choosing a managed service provider that operates a Data Center with state-of-the-art security, redundant air conditioning and power units and a 100% uptime guarantee is as equally important as the site s technical expertise and capabilities. When choosing a managed service provider, it is important to select a provider with A managed service provider should offer customized solutions, tailored to fit your needs. 24/7/365 on-site network engineers that have proven experience in installation, repair, monitoring, replacement and configuration. Your provider should work to ensure that you remain in the driver seat without getting caught up in the day-to-day tasks. While keeping you in control, a managed IT services provider should offer you the ability to customize your managed server solution to fit your needs. Many service providers stop their service at the device layer. OnRamp is different.
