(The Hosting News) – NetSource recently introduced a new secure cloud environment tailored for small to medium sized businesses. Research has shown that over 60% of first time efforts into cloud technologies fail. Either the price wasn’t as expected, the solution didn’t perform as needed, security was lacking, or a number of other issues are sited in the research. Why do these efforts fail? NetSource believes there are two key reasons: 1) lack of understanding and knowledge and 2) lack of help with a new technology. Cloud services, as offered by the industry, are offered as a commodity and businesses need more help, particularly small businesses.
So, what is new and why is NetSource’s cloud offering different than commodity cloud offerings? NetSource becomes a partner with our clients to make sure they have a full technical team behind them to support their cloud environment. NetSource offers a full demo of the cloud hosting platform to any potential client that wants to test the solution before they commit. NetSource clients are never on their own with items like security or other planning directly related to this new technology.
NetSource helps solve one of the largest concerns on a public cloud offering – security. Most public clouds provide a shared network approach that is inherently insecure. With NetSource, each customer network is separated from others rather than sharing a network. NetSource solves this problem by creating isolated VLANs for customers down to the physical level. Ask any security expert. VLAN isolation is critical to achieving security.
Next, NetSource understands that there is a hurdle to cross when migrating to cloud services. NetSource helps small and medium sized businesses get over that hurdle. How? When a client wants to try the cloud solution, a trial portal is setup to access the cloud. Clients also get a basic manual that describes how to get up and running quickly. In the meantime, NetSource will schedule one-on-one real-time webinars to help clients setup the environment with no costs to start. If the environment doesn’t solve a particular problem, just stop the trial and nothing would be billed. It is a risk free environment with a lot of help along the way.
NetSource can customize the cloud environment to meet very specific needs. NetSource can help setup VPNs between remote hosted environments and the NetSource cloud. NetSource can help to physically connect a colo or dedicated server environment at NetSource to the NetSource cloud environment. The service even includes a feature that can connect dedicated cloud servers so that each client has dedicated hardware.
NetSource’s new cloud offers many features that help small businesses thrive. The cloud includes self service portals, pay-for-use pricing, VLAN isolation, VM resource scaling, dynamically add or remove disk volumes, load balancing, self managed firewall rules, resource usage reports, a SSAE16 Type 2, SOC1, SOC2 datacenter, and much more. NetSource’s cloud is ready right now and please contact NetSource today for a demo.
