In EGID hosting environment, the hosting provider owns and is responsible for the data centre, network, devices, operating system and application infrastructure components, providing a stable operating environment for the applications. The customer's own IT organization manages the applications and maintains full control over the applications infrastructure and business process.
Managed hosting provides more value than co-location and dedicated hosting because it frees up internal IT personnel from mundane infrastructure related tasks which can be redeployed into understanding and supporting the business more effectively. Managed Hosting eases the overall maintenance problem of carrying multiple spares of every component, the cost of 24/7/365 staff and re-creating network infrastructure to ensure there is no single point of failure. In addition it frees up cash flow, by spreading the cost on a flexible monthly basis, avoiding up front capital expenditure. Through managed hosting at EGID®, companies benefit from our experience and expertise as a managed hosting specialist, with highly skilled engineers available 24 x 7 to monitor solutions and resolve issues as quickly as possible. A company also gains access to the EGID multi-homed network for additional redundancy and benefits from our partnerships with many industry leaders, which allow us to collaborate on the best solutions, tools and procedures needed to deliver superior support services for customers, saving their internal resources and costs and reducing overall risk.
