Many organisations are looking for ways to improve the reliability of IT delivery while streamlining costs. Some enterprises have turned hosting provider and Software as a Service (SaaS) as one potential solution. Consequently, many IT service and solution providers have chosen to resell the capacity available from third party managed data centres or public clouds. Both options generate a profitable business but are largely unmanaged services. Some even advocate the use of public clouds such as Amazon as a viable alternative for mission critical IT delivery.
Oriium take a different viewpoint. We believe that enterprise customers are better served by working directly with a service provider that has physical access to critical server, data storage and networking equipment within a dedicated data centre suite. To this end, Oriium has invested in significant data centre capacity within two separate tier 3 facilities built with resiliency of infrastructure, power and communication links. We allow our enterprise customers to choose whether critical applications are deployed on dedicated physical or virtualised hardware as either an isolated or multi-tenant solution to meet security, privacy and cost constraints.
As Oriium has full control over every aspect of hardware within our data centre suite, our enterprise customers can enact the full spectrum of vendor choice, configuration, security and monitoring preferences backed up by a full portfolio of managed services and bespoke SLAs.
As part of our custom cloud and hosting environment, Oriium provides a full range of data migration and backup services. This extends to every aspect of the data lifecycle and unlike other providers, we believe that it is essential to provide a fully transparent method of removing data or allowing our enterprise customers to migrate data out of our facility in a pre-planned and structured fashion. This ethos gives our enterprise customers the confidence that data can move smoothly between an on and off-site IT strategy when and if necessary.
Our data centre suite can be fully inspected by our enterprise clients under secure conditions and our on-going investment in data centre services and capacity allows our customers to scale their off-site IT infrastructure in line with business needs – with the full confidence of a trusted service provider and secure locations.
