Cloud Hosting Simplifies Your Processes and Solves Operational Problems
Here are some of the reasons organizations of all size across every industry choose to add cloud hosting to their IT solutions mix as a secure, cost-effective, and flexible way to simplify and scale their operations:
Managed Updates, Automated Backup and Expert Maintenance:
Our hosting partner is a Tier-4 MTCS (Multi-Tier Cloud Security) certified facility with top level on-site security, failover geographic redundancy, and 99.995% availability (guaranteed uptime). As all of our hosting accounts are offered on a 24/7365 manage service basis, updating of your Attivo solutions and data backups occur automatically without service interruptions. As the preferred hosting partner to ECI Software Solutions, we have immediate access to software upgrades, patches, and new and existing integration code for Macola add-ons and plug-ins.
Scalability and Performance:
Supporting your business growth using your own hardware is expensive and often requires significant advance planning, especially as COVID-19 supply chain interruptions wreak havoc with chipset availability. Our hosting solutions provide instantaneous scalability, making it possible to add processing power and additional storage at any time. Standard hosting accounts feature best-in-class servers, Solid State Hard Drives (SSD), and high availability Internet backbone connectivity. Even the most unexpected spike in traffic or data activity is handled automatically, avoiding outages and other service interruptions.
Attivo Cloud Hosting features the highest degree of fault-tolerant infrastructure and maximum redundancy possible, assuring maximum uptime, security, and data integrity. With ransomware, phishing and malware attacks in the news on a daily basis, it has become challenging, expensive, and resource-intensive for organizations to protect their own on-premise networks and data assets. Our world-class Tier-4 data center provides the highest degree of account, data, and hardware security available today. Your private cloud assets are in a facility which hosts some of the world’s largest corporations and a select group of government agencies.

Our experience with hundreds of manufacturing customers with our ERP and MRP solutions provide us with the ability to document in advance the economic advantages you’ll experience by transitioning to a cloud IT footprint. Regardless of the size of your workforce, number of locations, or current IT footprint, our engineers will architect a hosting solution tailored to your specific needs.
Lower Power Costs:
One of the largest expenses of running your own infrastructure is the electricity load. As the cost of utilities rise this will only become more expensive. A cloud computing strategy eliminates much of the unnecessary overhead of powering your own infrastructure.
Reduce Personnel Costs:
Most organizations’ highest cost of business is workforce. This is exacerbated when companies build everything in-house. Cloud computing offers the option of a more streamlined workforce, allowing staff to focus on innovation, optimization, and other more critical projects rather than the maintenance of in-house infrastructure.
Eliminate Capital Expense (CapEx):
Shifting away from the costly upfront expenses of a CapEx model for IT spending frees up business capital to use in other ways. A cloud strategy allows companies then to move to an operational expense (OpEx) model. With OpEx, while you are still paying for software, hardware, and other solutions, the total cost is amortized over the lifetime of the technology. The added bonus is that upgrades are included in the cost, so you never have to worry about putting up with obsolescence.
Gain Resilience Without Expensive Redundancy:
Most organizations understand the massive cost that any disruption can have on their business. This is why most disaster recovery plans include building redundancy into everything, yet this just doubles the cost! Using cloud services instead allows you to gain resilience without needing to buy two of everything.
Reduce Carbon Footprint:
Implementing cloud services can also help reduce your organization’s overall carbon footprint. The reduced carbon footprint is measured as a combination of saving energy as well as optimizing your actual footprint within your own or your cloud provider’s data centre. This means you can save money without paying to offset your carbon footprint.
Today, we continue to add more solutions and services to drive even greater value to our clients’ bottom line. Before doing so, we thoroughly evaluate the offering to determine its intrinsic value and long-term benefit to the customer. Above all, the gold standard is that it empowers our clients to manage their businesses more affordably and effectively. Our Attivo Cloud hosting is an excellent example of this philosophy. If you’ve not yet considered adopting a cloud strategy for your IT operations or are unsure if your current hosting arrangement is the optimal approach for your needs, we invite you to consider Attivo Cloud Hosting.
