Linux Hosting and Management (IaaS)

Linux Hosting and Management (IaaS)

Organisations are constantly challenged to become more competitive and grow market share. Reacting to these challenged often requires additional investment in IT systems and resources. Whilst at the same time companies are under pressure to reduce overall costs, which makes adopting new strategies and investing in systems a difficult balancing act.

Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) addresses the above challenges by providing computing power and storage on demand. Not only is the server infrastructure available when required, but its costs reflect actual usage and remove the need for capital expenditure. There are also savings to be made on maintenance contracts, resources, power usage and physical location space. With IaaS, business in no longer bound by the physical limitations of the data centre.

Systems are available as and when you need them. With this on demand service there is no longer a need to own and maintain contingency systems for peak periods or growth cycles. IaaS addresses both the business and financial requirements of an organisation and it can dramatically improve time to market for products and services. The IT infrastructure can be delivered more efficiently through reduction of costs and expenditure is transformed deom capex to opex. Internal resource can focus on more strategic business issues rather than trying to manage daily server and storage demand.

Our IaaS infrastructure is coupled with our managed services offering. Blue Chip's Systems Management Services deliver a cohesive unified approach to managing all systems and devices. This approach to systems management is unique in delivering bespoke, tailored solutions that fit with your business processes and requirements. Our solution is modular in design making it easy to deliver either as a managed solution or a stand alone service. Distribution of the service is entirely tailored to your needs in the combination and configuration you require.

Our enterprise level monitoring Linux agents have the capability to automate responses to any alerts and initiate most first line fixes. These fixes enable rapid response by the relevant resources, delivering a holistic approach to systems management that is unique to Blue Chip. Escalation paths are automated. As the problem, investigation or resolution changes so does the response and escalation process.
