Cloud Services

"The Cloud" is a popular term that is often misunderstood and left without explanation. AIT was providing cloud services before they enjoyed the notoriety of today. We offer the following cloud-based services:

Private Cloud

Through our Infrastructure as a service (IAAS) capabilities, we can host one or more of your servers from a private cloud within our data center/NOC to offer a complete cloud infrastructure or a hybrid approach that includes your on-premise servers. Contact us for a cost analysis of what is best for you given your unique requirements. Our private cloud services include:

  • Server Operating Systems and Relational Database Management Systems
  • Complete maintenance of your servers, including updates/patches, and real-time monitoring
  • Backups with historical retention points
  • VM replication where applicable/necessary
  • Virtual Private Network (VPN) connectivity from your office(s) and remote access with Multi-Factor Authentication
Application Hosting

We can host your browser-based and traditional "fat client" applications from a private cloud for maximum uptime and accessibility. This includes any combination of:

  • Off-the-shelf / third party applications
  • Custom software developed for your organization

Our Premier e-mail service is provided via hosted Exchange from our cloud and includes:

  • Complete maintenance of e-mail, contacts, tasks, and calendar data
  • Backups for comprehensive message retention
  • Scanning of incoming and outgoing messages for spam and viruses
  • Data sharing capabilities for your organization
  • Web-based (OWA) access and mobile device (Active Sync) connectivity for smart phones, tablets, etc.
E-mail spam filtering

If you maintain your own e-mail server, this service keeps unnecessary traffic off of your Internet circuit and insures that the messages delivered to and sent from your e-mail server are scanned for spam and viruses. As an added benefit, if your e-mail server becomes inoperable, this service "queues" your e-mail until your server is brought back on-line.

Platform Monitoring

We monitor your servers and workstations using our own proprietary software in real-time. Our Network Services team is immediately notified of anything that requires attention. This alerting mechanism insures that we can be proactive in preventing or minimizing problems that can only grow in complexity and resolution cost if left unaddressed.
