We have made a major investment in our data center to be able to provide industry-leading cloud hosting services like cloud computing, cloud backup, and cloud restorations.
Our Cloud Solutions Are Cost-Effective
Businesses today depend heavily on Managed IT Services to support their operations and as a result, businesses looking to become more agile and responsive to the changing market landscape are turning to the cloud.
Our cloud services might be the data protection plan that works best for your business if you desire the security and features of a full server, without the cost of owning the equipment.
With our Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) services the next time you need new hardware, if your applications will support the Cloud, we can offer you a very low-cost monthly alternative to having to buy and house hardware at your location.
With our Platform as a Service (PaaS) services your Microsoft software can also be rented monthly instead of having a large capital expense. Now for a low monthly cost per user, everyone in your company can get the newest release of Office 365 at no additional cost, each time Microsoft releases a new version.
We have customers ranging from small businesses to statewide agencies who are making the move to the cloud.
Locally Owned and Managed Help Desk
Our company offers cloud services that are all local and based in Austin, Texas. We have made a major investment in our data center to be able to provide industry-leading cloud hosting services for cloud computing, cloud backup, and cloud restorations.
We are able to call it local because we have a fully redundant and virtualized data center right here in Austin, Tx, with a secondary data center in Chicago for businesses that require out of State replication.
Cloud based computing is all about “application”, “storage” and “connectivity”. In short, you get access to a shared pool of virtual resources such as networks, servers, storage applications, and services that are easily scalable and can be provisioned on demand.
Every business is different and what may be important or relevant to your business may be very different from another. Vintage IT works with you to determine how you use information technology to run your business and then customizes solutions to support those needs.
