Benefits of Managed Hosting vs Unmanaged and On-Premise Solutions

The Age of Diverse Technology Needs

Whether it is a large-scale enterprise or an expanding startup, organisations in the 21st century face diverse IT needs that demand efficient, secure, and agile solutions.

The mishmash of IT infrastructure that many organisations find themselves grappling with is a complex amalgamation of various solutions, managed hosting, unmanaged hosting, and in-house setups. Within this intricate network, organisations may have on-premises servers coexisting with unmanaged hosting services, while others rely on a combination of on-premises and managed hosting. Additionally, different hosting suppliers further compound the intricacy resulting in fragmented management, potential security risks, hampered agility, incompatibility, and increased costs.

On Premise Solutions

Outside of major corporations, in-house solutions are economically impractical. Coupled with build costs and the physical space requirements, in-house solutions require constant monitoring, maintenance, upgrades, and experienced people to do the work, all of which comes at a cost.

Un-Managed Hosting

While unmanaged hosting services provide server space and operating systems, organisations are required to manage and maintain their applications independently. While offering flexibility, unmanaged hosting demands significant internal experienced resource for installation, monitoring, and upkeep, potentially leading to higher operational complexities and costs.

Managed Hosting

On the flipside, managed hosting providers offer a comprehensive suite of services and support, encompassing not only server space and operating systems, but also the management, maintenance, and security. With experts on hand, the overall agility, resilience, and security posture of an organisation is significantly increased.

Key Benefits of a Managed Infrastructure Hosting Solution

Expert management and support for all aspects of the infrastructure, including servers, networks, storage, and security. Experienced professionals ensure optimal performance, reliability, and security.

Proactive Monitoring and maintenance to detect and address issues before they impact operations, minimises downtime, improves performance, and enhances the overall reliability of the infrastructure.

Scalability and flexibility are built in allowing resource to scale up or down depending on business need.

Advanced security is a top priority to protect against cyber threats and data breaches. From firewalls and intrusion detection systems to regular security audits and updates, safeguarding against potential security risks.

Reducing capital expenditure on hardware and software, as well as ongoing maintenance and management costs, predictable pricing models eliminate unexpected expenses and enable effective budgeting for IT needs.
