Enterprise Hosting: Keep Your Sites Safe

Enterprise Hosting

We offer our customers the highest quality of hosting services and support.  We host many mission-critical websites and applications for clients both large and small.  These are applications that absolutely must be available for our clients’ business to operate. 

We initially began providing hosting services because the sophisticated software we developed for our clients sometimes required special hosting features that were not cost effective to purchase, or sometimes not available, from other hosting firms.  This focus on enterprise-level, business-critical hosting services has allowed us to offer a unique level of reliability and flexibility unmatched by firms without our deep software development, data integration, and infrastructure knowledge. 

Equipped with the finest hardware and software, our services support our customers’ websites and applications with exceptional redundancy, reliability, speed, and security. 

At Spot Solutions, we recognize our mission-critical role.  Our clients use our hosting services when their applications are core to their business operations and must always be available.  These can be online web application or Software as a Service businesses where they business is the web application.  Or they can be web applications used by business teams within the organization that are providing a service to internal or external clients.  Some of our clients’ process tens of millions of dollars of business through their custom built hosted applications per year, and some have that level of exposure through their ability need for high levels of reliability and up time.  Our top priority is to provide high-quality, reliable services coupled with superb customer service to all customers. 

Our data centers are located in Canada and all data is maintained within this country in order to meet the regulatory requirements of our government and corporate clients.  Our servers are protected by an extensible, multi-layer enterprise firewall featuring stateful inspection, broad application support, integrated virtual private networking (VPN), system hardening, integrated intrusion detection, smart application filters, transparency for all clients, advanced authentication, secure server publishing and security packet-, circuit- & application level traffic screening. 

Websites

We have been hosting websites for over ten years. Our feature-rich packages allow you to select the right level of functionality for your organization. Our hosting packages integrate seamlessly with other web-based services we offer such as Microsoft Exchange and Microsoft SharePoint.

Databases

We can host your database-driven application on managed or unmanaged, shared, co-located or virtual servers. Let us help you select the best hosting option for your database servers. Our hosting services include: Microsoft Exchange Hosting – Our hosted MS Exchange service allows you to access Microsoft’s essential messaging and collaboration software without purchasing server hardware, software licenses and dealing with ongoing maintenance issues/costs. Microsoft SharePoint Hosting – Microsoft SharePoint is the gateway to effective enterprise collaboration. Portals, intranets and web applications can simplify how people work together through improved communication and more informed decision-making. MS SharePoint Services 3.0 and the more powerful MS SharePoint Office Server 2010 leverage this potential with increasingly flexible personalization, collaboration and integration features.
