Reliable Business Hosting Solutions
Shawn Stern Computer Services, Inc. provides proven hosted cloud solutions to manage the business technology of its clients across a variety industries.
Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) – a form of cloud computing that provides virtualized computing resources over the Internet.
Software as a Service (SaaS) – a software licensing and delivery model in which software is licensed on a subscription basis and is centrally hosted. It is sometimes referred to as “on-demand software”. SaaS is typically accessed by users using a thin client via a web browser.
Co-Location of Customer Equipment – we offer our clients a secure place to physically house their hardware and equipment as opposed to locating it in their offices or warehouse where the potential for fire, theft or vandalism is much greater. Our data center is climate controlled with natural gas generator backup power.
Virtualization using VMWare Products and Services – “one cloud, any application, any device” – It’s the single most effective way to reduce IT expenses while boosting efficiency and agility – not just for large enterprises, but for small and midsize businesses too.
Email Hosting / Spam Filtering – E-mail hosting is using a service to maintain your e-mail account. This is a secure path for your e-mail to flow in and out. Spam mail filters are used to stop or redirect e-mail, unsolicited e-mails, sales, viruses, and of course, scams.
Website Hosting / Site Administration – We host your business or personal website on our in-house servers. We also provide site administration for clients when desired as well as maintenance plan for their WordPress sites.
