Maintain customer access to always-available hosted services through enhanced network management and cellular failover capabilities.
Whether it’s hosting, SaaS, Iaas or Paas, cloud services have clearly validated their presence as a viable alternative to costly on-premise solutions. As cloud services replace expensive customer hardware, it’s absolutely critical that these environments are connected and accessible to users. Downtime doesn’t only mean lost revenue for providers — it may also equate to lost revenue from paying customers, risking a tarnished reputation in crowded, competitive ecosystems.
The success of a cloud-based service can be closely tied to its reliability. When you are serving a global customer base, it’s critical that these users have access to a system that the cloud service is hosting for them. Data redundancy is vital for cloud providers — and equally important is the ability to monitor, access and maintain these redundant datacenter locations while employing connectivity redundancies.
