Managed Hosting Service

Managed Hosting Service is similar to Dedicated Hosting Service in that it allows clients to rent or lease an entire physical server within a data center. This hardware is not shared with anyone. In Dedicated Hosting the user rents the server, but chooses his own hardware, operating system, hard disk storage space and also provides a technician to deal with any upgrades or problems with the user system. Managed Hosting, on the other hand, gives the customer the opportunity to rent the server space with on-location technical support and solutions provided by the data center. No server access is given to the user. Both these services provide a more flexible option for customers than shared hosting.

Advantages to the Managed Hosting Service is that users don't have to purchase any hardware, lay out money on capital investments, or maintain and update equipment. They purchase a package based on individual requirements for disk and data space. Clients can upgrade in the future by increasing bandwidth or adding additional servers as personal or business enterprises expand. These upgrades are cost effective and time efficient since the client does not pay capital costs, but instead only pays the difference between old and new monthly package fees. Server management is not a burden for the user.

Canhost Inc., which is based in Kelowna, British Columbia, delivers a high quality, affordable, network and hosting service. Its Managed Hosting Service provides expert support for client systems and applications which help you focus on more important and strategic business issues. This service includes among other things, software and application updates, reboots, monitoring, operating system upgrades, and security patches to keep servers safe and secure.

Rented servers are housed in Canhost's secure facility near the West Coast of Canada. It has the advantage of a private entrance from the outside and does not share its space with other commercial businesses. The Canhost Inc. provides and maintains redundant power sources, backup battery and redundant power generator running on diesel, and a HVAC system (heating, ventilation and air conditioning), to control air temperature and humidity which ensures optimal functioning of equipment and environment. Multiple fibre optic cables entering the building guarantee that if one internet bundle is compromised, alternate connections will still be maintained.

Security is foremost at our state-of-the-art DataCenter. Great thought has been put into the design of the building. A raised floor in the storage area separates client data from cables and decreases the risk of potential fire damage. A zoned fire detection system in the form of firewalls, specially coated roof and smoke alarms are constantly being monitored by DataCenter technicians. The windowless storage environment, which includes a multi layered electronic system boasting video surveillance, security staffing, electronic authentication and access codes, and motion and breach alarms, assures prospective clients that valuable data will not be compromised. Battery and generator backup systems are in place and provide redundancy in case of failure. Customers can trust that IQDC Solutions has the knowledge and integrity to protect and safe-guard their operating systems and information. Reliability and flexibility are the cornerstones of the DataCenter operation.
