Gripple Case Study

The demand for affordable access to the best technologies is ever increasing. To stay ahead of the competition buying and provisioning your own applications and running them on the most efficient hardware is no longer the winning formula. It takes too long to deploy new services, ties up capital, isn’t flexible and is administration intensive.

Our Cloud and hosted data centre services deliver compelling cost savings over traditional business models to help you scale back operating costs and eliminate the need for capital expenditure:

Our tailored datacentre services enable you to run your business your way on our cost efficient infrastructure. No longer will cost stop you getting the high level of operational technology your business needs:

  • Co-location services: Get the benefits of enterprise infrastructure without the costs in our Tier 3 data centre.
  • Co-location: Maintain complete control over your own servers without the expense
  • Managed Co-location: All the benefits of Co-location plus someone to manage the system administration
  • Utility Services: Abolish capital expenditure – your IT doesn’t need it anymore.
  • Cloud Backup: Backup all your critical data and systems from as little as £1.25 per GB stored. And before we store it for you, we de-dupe and compress it so you don’t store what you don’t need to.
  • Virtual Datacentre: All your infrastructure needs delivered on best of breed technology and you only pay for what you use on a monthly basis. Cisco, VMware and EMC technology was never so affordable.
  • Desktops as a Service: Get your business desktop wherever you are, whatever device you are using.

Are you ready to step into the Cloud?

Companies are often faced with the dilemma whether they should go for a hosted or an on-premise solution. There is really no right or wrong answer but companies need to assess their business needs and infrastructure before taking a decision. The fundamental point is that not all solutions work best in the Cloud or on-premise and the choice often requires a trade-off between flexibility and costs to optimize returns.

There are advantages and disadvantages with both platforms and these are subject to the type of software/service under consideration. The table below outlines the advantages and disadvantages of the hosted and on-premise delivery model.
