What Are Hosted Solutions?
Does your company run its own email server, web server or software solutions? Maybe it’s time you consider Hosted Solutions, an outsourced form of IT systems, functions and solutions that are hosted by a technology provider that lets you enjoy all of the solution’s features without having to worry about maintaining, updating and monitoring the technology. A Hosted Solutions provider owns and oversees the infrastructure, software and administrative tasks and makes the system available to you over the Internet, hence they are also known as cloud services. This helps you avoid high software and hardware purchasing and licensing costs and keeps your focus on your business, not mundane IT tasks.
The three main elements of Hosted Solutions are software as a service (SaaS), platform as a service (PaaS) and infrastructure as a service (IaaS). These three combinations encompass software and network capacity as well as equipment like hardware, servers, networking components and storage.
What Are My Hosted Solutions Costs?
Technology plays a huge part in your overall business cost with downtime as a hidden cost that many small business owners might not take into account when it comes to IT expenses. Hosted Solutions minimizes IT costs by letting you do away with having to maintain, replace and repair hardware, software, platform and infrastructure. For a flat monthly fee, Plan B Network Services takes care of all that for you allowing you to better budget your expenses and do away with licensing, purchasing and maintenance costs for good.
