Cloud and hosted infrastructure solutions from Ideal

Cloud solution or hosted solution?

You can’t deny the attraction of opting in to cloud infrastructure as a service - it’s flexible, and you are reassured that the management, security and disaster recovery are pretty flawless.

But there’s a time and place for cloud infrastructure and although there’s a lot of hype about moving to a cloud solution, it’s not a one-size-fits-all option. For some businesses, questions such as where your data is hosted and who manages is, isn’t a simple answer and so in those cases, it’s worth considering a managed hosting solution instead.

Cloud infrastructure as a service and hosted solutions designed for you

At Ideal, we have in-depth experience of designing and deploying hosted and public, private and hybrid cloud solutions, tailored completely for the objectives, budgetary and legislative requirements of your business.

We can advise you on the pros and cons of competing options such as on or off-premises, with an understanding of sector and business-specific considerations such as security, and capital expenditure versus operational expenditure costs.

Our hosted solution

With many of the benefits of infrastructure as a service, it provides the additional advantage of a bespoke architecture, exclusively designed and implemented for your exact needs. You know exactly where your data is stored and processed - on a dedicated, protected and secured infrastructure.

In addition, we offer key business tools and resources via service models:
