virtual application server

The VAS(Virtual Application Server) is a platform developed by Utropicmedia to allow our clients to realize the promise of SaaS. Before VAS, companies and teams cobbled together existing infrastructure designs and dated business processes in an effort to force technology into a service-based model. With the arrival of our new platform a VAS provides the complete stack of technology and services required to power any SaaS application. Our primary goal was to allow your team to focus on running your SaaS applications and taking care of your clients while we make sure you have best-in-class technology and business processes at your disposal.

dedicated example
Our goal with the VAS package was to create a dedicated server product that had all the flexibility that virtualization technologies provide while not sacrificing the performance a dedicated server provides. The VAS platform is the next significant advance in Managed Hosting.

The performance of the VAS comes from a solid foundation, years of engineering experience and proprietary extensions that allow the OS Kernels to operate in true, real-time fashion. Couple our technology with industry-leading business processes and management and you have a true evolution to enable the SaaS approaches of the next century.

Now VAS builds are available in over 50 countries. Visit our International Colocation page for location information and please contact us for pricing.
