Datacert offers clients the flexibility to deploy its solutions behind a corporate firewall or to have Datacert host the
solution for them, allowing clients to enjoy ease of implementation and worry-free maintenance. With managed private cloud-based
hosting options that provide industry-leading security and monitoring, Datacert can support the unique data storage, recovery
time objectives, and audit compliance requirements of clients across the globe.
The benefits of Datacert hosting services include:
Private Cloud Infrastructure – Datacert has made a significant investment in private cloud infrastructure
in order to optimize the performance, scalability, and availability of our hosted solutions while maintaining the highest levels
of data security and control. As a result, clients reap the benefits of cloud computing and at the same time have the peace of
mind of knowing precisely where their data is stored and the confidence that it is highly secure.
Global Locations – Datacert options include hosting services in datacenters in the U.S., Canada, Europe, and
Asia-Pacific. This global coverage allows for the hosting of client solutions in a location that meets necessary regulatory
or business requirements.
Rapid Deployment – Customers can avoid the hassle of procuring hardware and configuring software or having to rely on the
availability and responsiveness of internal IT department resources. Instead, their solution is deployed quickly,
enabling them to realize a faster return on their investment.
Reduced Up-front and Long-Term IT Costs – Clients incur no out-of-pocket costs for procuring hardware
or server software or hiring additional IT resources. Their internal IT staff also do not have the ongoing burden of
conducting additional server administration, upgrades, maintenance, software license management, data backups,
security controls, or 24/7 monitoring and can instead focus on supporting core business systems. Moreover, Datacert's
private cloud infrastructure can readily meet the growth demands of the world’s largest corporate clients.
High Security –
The solution will be hosted in a highly-secure, fault-tolerant Datacert private cloud environment in a SOC 1 Type 2-audited datacenter managed by Savvis,
Datacert’s Safe Harbor-certified hosting provider. Savvis is positioned as a leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Managed Hosting. Clients’ applications
and data receive the highest levels of security with state-of-the-art facilities and security controls, including redundant firewalls, network intrusion
detection systems, quarterly penetration testing by two independent third parties, and advanced encryption capabilities covering in-transit and at-rest data.
Datacert has earned the internationally-recognized ISO 27001 certification for its information security management system supporting the hosting solutions.
Robust Performance and Reliability – Hosted clients never have to worry about server performance
bottlenecks or upgrading failing hardware. Their solution is deployed in a highly-redundant private cloud operating
environment fully-managed by Datacert. This solution environment delivers high performance levels even as client needs
change and provides clients with a 99.9% infrastructure uptime guarantee.
Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity – Datacert offers hosted clients flexible disaster recovery
(DR) options to meet their specific business continuity and recovery time objective (RTO) requirements. This can include
near real-time replication of their application environment and data to a mirrored disaster recovery datacenter facility
at a geographically-separate location.
Benefits Over Other Hosting Models – Datacert hosting services offer clients many advantages over other hosting models in the market by offering dedicated
application servers, dedicated IP addresses, and dedicated databases. With other models, clients often share an application,
a database, or both. A shared database produces the potential for the co-mingling of data within the database and can lead to
very serious security breaches, of which there are documented examples. Additionally, with a shared application, which is the
model used by some vendors, clients are greatly constrained in terms of customizations and integrations and must upgrade on the
vendor’s timeframe. Conversely, Datacert hosting services allow for maximum flexibility in terms of customization,
integrations, and upgrades.
