Our application hosting solution (which we like to refer to as Application as a Service) has been specifically designed to allow companies to move their legacy applications off-premise and into a more accessible and secure cloud hosted environment.
Moving applications to our secure hosted environment also removes the age-old pain points of installing, maintaining and updating applications, tasks which historically ate up precious IT resource. With our cloud application hosting everyone has access to the latest versions immediately following deployment. It’s a refreshing fix once, fix for all approach.
For many companies, having to host legacy applications locally on dedicated servers has been a sticking point in moving to a preferred cloud-based solution for their IT. Using Atlas Cloud and hosting these applications in our secure hosted environment enables companies to break away from troublesome on-premise servers.
Hosting applications outside of a tired on-premise solution is vital for today’s modern workplace where users expect to be able to access data from anywhere, at any time, and on any device. This is especially important if your company operates across multiple sites or has users frequently visiting customer sites. Our managed application hosting services allow easy access and on-the-go collaborating, even when using resource hungry graphics based applications. Utilising the vast processing power of the cloud ensures fast performance on any device.
There is a distinct difference between our application hosting service and Software as a Service (SaaS).
A purchased application or software that is hosted in the cloud by a 3rd party in order to be accessed via the internet.
A service that is paid for and accessed via the internet. You don’t own the software or application, you just pay a subscription to access it.
Not all applications are available as SaaS. Others may have cloud-based hosting options, but often an element of local hosting is still required and/or key functionality is restricted when accessing via the web. This is where Atlas Cloud come to the fore.
We can host any application on our secure data centre servers and make it available to you anywhere, at any time, and on any device. We essentially transform your purchased application into a SaaS solution. It will function exactly the same as if installed locally (probably faster thanks to our high-spec servers) but you’ll be able to access it anywhere rather than having to be sat at your desk or hooked up to the network via a clunky VPN. The impact it can have on your productivity and workforce flexibility is immeasurable.
