Utropicmedia (http://utropicmedia.net), which specializes in web services and data distribution solutions, now offers enterprise server colocation services so that businesses with critical IT operations can save time and resources while improving their IT performance and value.
A business with 24/7 operations is highly dependent on its servers to provide consistent uptime, even if its core business is not IT-related. Yet the cost of a dedicated server in terms of investment in capital equipment and staffing expenses can be daunting. Cutting corners by using the less expensive option of shared hosting is not viable for a number of reasons, most importantly the lack of security and reliability.
With server colocation, Utropicmedia offers another alternative that provides the high levels of security and reliability that small businesses need, yet eliminates the cost of purchasing expensive server hardware and software, as well as hiring, training and maintaining an in-house staff of IT professionals.
Businesses get the performance benefits of on-site equipment without the expense, and also receive the savings and reliability of having a professional IT facility maintain and monitor the equipment.
To guarantee that level of reliability, the potential for natural disasters like floods, hurricanes and earthquakes must be taken into consideration. Their impact on server performance is a real concern for small businesses.
But since the main global colocation datacenter for Utropicmedia is in Detroit Michigan – an area that is geographically stable and not prone to natural disasters – the risk is significantly reduced. The only provider that supplies access to additional datacenters in more than 50 countries assures redundancy in addition to the Michigan Colocation hub.
Some of the systems that Utropicmedia uses to ensure reliability, for example, are multiple premium backbone providers via proactive BGP4, a CicsoTM,-powered redundant core network, facility UPS with DC power plant, backup generator with priority fuel contract and redundant HVAC. Security features include 24×7 secure facility access and locked server cabinets. And to ensure the high standards and reliability, Utropicmedia undergoes compliance auditing on a regular basis.
The server colocation services can be scaled to meet the specific requirements of any business. Available solutions include managed server backup, SlipStreamTM content delivery, SAN-backed storage allocation, Vaultwise Disaster Recovery Services and full console and remote media access to equipment.
Utropicmedia provides services far beyond the standard connectivity that companies expect. In addition, it also provides consulting, hosted application support and complete corporate hosting features.
With more than a decade of colocation service experience, Utropicmedia helps free small and medium-sized businesses from the burdensome staffing and equipment demands of managing significant IT operations so they can focus on their core business.
