If you’re looking to reduce or eliminate the need to buy and maintain expensive servers, you can move some or all of your business’s computing components, such as your hardware, software, data management, networking, and technology, into the Ntiva cloud.
The company worries about the maintenance, design, security, upgrades, and availability of your cloud infrastructure, so you don’t have to. Data back-up is built in, enterprise-grade security is a given, and you can access your data, files, and applications from anywhere. Cloud services can be purchased on a fixed monthly basis, so you can pay as you go, scaling up and down as required.
Ntiva currently partners with Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) offering high performance, high availability and cost-effective infrastructure services to its clients.
Data center hosting / virtual server hosting
Many clients are often confused between the “cloud” and a “data center.” The main difference is that the cloud is considered an off-premises form of computing and storage - whereas a data center typically refers to on-premises hardware.
Many companies are choosing to use a third-party data center instead of paying the costs associated with building and maintaining their own in-house data center. Ntiva’s state-of-the-art data centers can securely house your servers, storage, and networking equipment, letting you share the cost of space, power, and connectivity.
