When you decide to move into the Cloud, your data is the most sensitive and important thing, and we understand that. So we treat your data like it contains top-secret information and we certainly don’t want any unwanted visitors on your Cloud. Because of this, we offer the highest quality security, routers, switches and monitoring to make sure your Cloud remains your Cloud.
With RapidScale’s IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service) Solution, CloudServer, the benefits are continually growing. Saving money is always a plus to any successful business and by using a firewall, you eliminate the need to have capital expenses for equipment and hardware maintenance contracts. You don’t have to worry about managing your own servers. RapidScale installs and maintains your applications and security software. This helps keeps your data safe. We’ve put in place Cisco and SonicWALL Firewalls as they’re the leading firewalls to protect your files. RapidScale also gives you the option to enlist a full-scale monitoring team to keep an eye on everything. By doing this, you control who accesses your sensitive data. Plus, our monitoring includes 24x7x365 support, so that we are there when you need us.
Disaster recovery is another perk with CloudServer. RapidScale’s CloudServer houses your data in secure Tier 3, Class 1 data centers that are mirrored and securely backed up. By design, the services are built in geographically redundant data centers in an Active/Active environment, meaning that if a disaster was to occur, a secondary data center would initiate and all the users would be routed to that site. There are a myriad of ways to lose equipment and data, whether it is fire, theft or malfunctioning sprinklers. This gives your services the ability to be quickly back on-line and running smoothly in the event of a disaster. Our infrastructure resides in multiple data centers so clients can be assured that their business critical applications and data will be fully redundant in a different data center, making it easier to resume business as usual.
With your infrastructure hosted off-site, you free up your IT staff to focus on value-added tasks, such as planning and development, instead of running around patching machines and fixing bugs. Reduce risk, eliminate headaches and save money with CloudServer.
Of course there is also the question of security, but with RapidScale, we have layers of security that go above and beyond the traditional firewall security. RapidScale can implement parameters to help control the flow of information. You can have your own IT team manage your firewall or let RapidScale’s high quality IT team implement and manage it for you which would help eliminate unnecessary costs. Every Cloud has to have a secure and stable connection to work at ideal speed and connectivity. Well, the router is the connection between your Cloud and its source of Internet connection. We certainly are pros at load-balancing routers between multiple networks, making it the most convenient solution for your business. If a business has an IT team in place, after implementation, the team will manage and monitor it. However, if there is no IT team available, RapidScale can monitor the installation, development, and running of the router.
Our CloudServer solution runs on the same hardware and network infrastructure as the rest of our products. This includes our own internal resources such as email, VDI and file storage. To prove our confidence in our infrastructure, we are our own customer. Backed by NetApp storage, Cisco UCS network & compute, VMware Hypervisors, and a true 10Gb network backbone to link it all together, CloudServer employs the best-in-breed hosting platforms in a fully redundant configuration to ensure the highest level of service availability possible. This means that at least one, if not multiple, appliances, cables, or power sources from each layer in the stack can simultaneously fail with little to no impact to your services and productivity.
