Public Cloud

Also referred to as the ‘external’ cloud, the public cloud describes the conventional meaning of cloud computing. The public cloud model opens access to a largely unrestricted virtual universe, and allows clients to use hard drive space, RAM, processor power, and other resources on an as-needed basis through web applications, with unlimited access and data capacity. Your business only needs service to the internet and a compatible device such as a smart phone or laptop computer—you have access to your data anywhere! The flexibility of public cloud computing fulfills many organizations’ growing data storage and processing needs without an investment in hardware and software.

Private Cloud

Also referred to as ‘internal’ cloud, the private cloud allows for a computing infrastructure that enables hosted services on a private network. This type of cloud is used by organizations of all sizes and offers the same scalability and flexibility of the public cloud with greater control of security and availability of computing resources. A private cloud may include both virtual and physical machines and may incorporate machines located in geographically dispersed offices and/or datacenters. In some cases, client-owned software licenses are utilized, however many vendors now offer subscription-based licensing as a cost-effective option.

N2N’s Hosting and Managed Services solutions deliver an efficient and highly performing information technology environment that is correctly sized to support your business’ future needs while minimizing today’s IT investment expenses. N2N deploys virtual machines on an N2N-managed multi-node cluster located in our datacenter. We’ll help you determine the best licensing model for your business applications, and even consider public cloud options as part of an overall solution.

Subscription pricing allows you to install and use the software products on a pay-as-you-go basis rather than purchasing a license plus support. Subscription pricing includes vendor support and patches, as well as automatic upgrades and new version releases. Pricing for subscription licensing is established by the vendor, is subject to change according to vendor policy, varies by product, and is available upon request (contact us link). 
Optional Server Anti-virus 

N2N’s anti-virus solution is available for colocated servers. When we provide the AV software for collocated servers, N2N also manages and maintains AV updates to ensure current virus definitions and vulnerabilities are applied routinely and, in urgent update situations, when systems security is at risk.

Offsite Backup

Incomplete or infrequent backups can expose your business to risks such as lost data, employee downtime, and even lost business. Yet many businesses aren’t adequately prepared. For some, the costs and complexities of data protection are just too overwhelming, while others lack the time and resources to consistently manage backup-related hardware and software. N2N Technologies’ offsite backup solution is designed to ensure the security of backup files and data, as well as cost-effective long term data archive and records retention.

Disaster Recovery

Today nearly every U.S. business relies on electronic data, whether it’s simple customer information, or complex financial, inventory, or analytical systems. New research indicates that almost half of small to medium-size enterprises have no formal data recovery plan. In addition, the research shows that most SMBs in the United States are greatly overestimating how prepared they are if such an outage were to hit their business. A simple gas leak, an extended power outage, a hacker or virus attack, or a serious natural disaster can lead to complete server loss or worse. N2N provides disaster recovery services to ensure IT systems recovery is possible, reliable, and efficient. An extended period of downtime can cost you big time — in lost revenues, lost credibility and ultimately, lost clients. Click below for more information about N2N’s disaster recovery solution.
