Have you moved your business into the cloud? That’s great! Cloud can provide you with a more flexible, better-performing and more cost-effective option than in-house servers.
But not all cloud solutions are created equal. And a big part of what determines that is where and how your data and systems are kept.
We’d like to give you a better cloud experience – but that doesn’t mean becoming a full client
Full disclosure: we’re an IT provider. So, yes, ideally, we’d like your business.
But we know that many businesses are perfectly happy with their IT provider, or their internal IT team. We’re not about to try and charge in on a happy relationship.
But we can help you make that relationship all the sweeter.
We can work with your existing IT provider or internal IT team to improve your cloud experience
How do we do that? With our data centre as a service/infrastructure as a service.
And just what is that? Well, your cloud systems and data are kept on servers in a data centre somewhere. Could be across town, could be across the country – could be across the world.
We’ve got data centres here in New Zealand, in Auckland and Christchurch. They keep our clients’ systems secure, fast and reliable.
But we can offer those data centres to you, too. Your IT team and IT provider still give you support, services and advice – we just provide the infrastructure that make your systems all that they can be.
So why pick CommArc for data centre as a service?
We know what makes a great data centre service, because we work with clients who demand a great data centre service.
Day-to-day, we work with dozens of businesses doing things probably a lot like you. And we know the kind of cloud infrastructure they need.
Our data centres are in New Zealand
Some businesses demand that their data is kept in New Zealand. It might be for regulatory reasons, to avoid getting tangled up in the laws of other jurisdictions, or just because it feels better.
But we reckon it’s a good idea for all New Zealand businesses. We’ve always felt strongly about that, and that’s why we only keep client data here in our Christchurch and Auckland data centres.
And unlike some providers, we don’t just resell you space from somewhere overseas. We’re 100% New Zealand-owned, 100% New Zealand-based. There’s no parent company looming over us. We’ve been here since 1993, and that’s not going to change.
We invest heavily in our data centre infrastructure. It’s fast, it’s smart, and it’s got grunt.
And your business won’t just have to share space and processing power with others: we provide dedicated resource.
Robust and reliable
We have servers in Christchurch and Auckland. If one data centre is affected, the other will keep operating.
We provide full backup
Your data will be safe if something goes wrong with air-gapped backups. And we can tailor that to your needs.
We tailor our service for you
We work with you to understand you and your business’ needs. We don’t just sell you a one-size-fits-all solution.
We manage the servers on your behalf
We look after the cloud servers, making sure they’re fed, watered, patched and fully up-to-date. That’s less hassle for you, and more time to provide your colleagues value.
Your data is as safe as it can reasonably be. Our servers are updated regularly to protect against electronic attack and our data centres are fortress-like.
You can use our servers, or bring your own
Our servers can give you what you need, but if you’d prefer to keep your own, we can install them in our data centre and keep them safe and happy.
