Hosted Servers, Desktops & Applications

By moving your entire infrastructure – the data center, networking, servers, desktops and applications – to the cloud, you gain significant security, reliability, accessibility and flexibility.  Having everything in one place helps you manage your entire IT infrastructure and solution with greater ease.

Why Choose Hosted Desktops & Servers?

  • Data Center & Network: Don’t try to build and maintain a world-class data center and network. Use ours.
  • Servers: Get those beasts out of your closet and rid yourself of the big capital expenses and upgrade cycles.
  • OS & Applications: By virtualizing your OSes and applications, you get redundancy, security and increased efficiencies.
  • User Desktops: Using Remote Desktop Services, Citrix or VDI, desktops live in the cloud and can be accessed and managed from anywhere.
  • Backups & Security: Know your data is reliably backed up and secure from all kinds of threats, physical and virtual.
  • IT Services: Direct all of your tech questions to Bluetowne’s Help Desk, where we can help manage and support your entire solution.

Off-Site Data Protection & Backups

Keep your business moving forward with Bluetowne’s powerful cloud-based solutions that make it simple to protect your data. Instead of backing up your critical business data to external hard drives or flash drives, online backup sends your data to a secure, offsite storage facility. You can access your files anytime, anywhere while they remain protected from fire, flood, theft or other disasters. The benefits of online backup are numerous: increased efficiency, security, peace of mind, and affordability – just to name a few.

Off-Site Location

Using an offsite storage location for your backup data is the only sensible approach, because it mitigates against the possibility that everything could be destroyed. Other major benefits of offsite backups include:

  • Reliability
  • Security
  • Affordability
  • Scalability
  • Ease of Recovery
  • Ease of Access


Goodbye, Pain Points

When a crisis hits, the value of a well planned backup strategy becomes apparent. The best data backup solutions enable you to recover lost data fast, without disturbing your workflow. Buying all the drives and backup media yourself may prove quite expensive, because they also need upgrading, maintenance and your time to operate. Move your data backup solution to the cloud to: 

  • Save Time and Money
  • Enjoy Easier and Quicker Data Recovery
  • Gain Peace of Mind and Additional Security
  • Automate the Backup Process and Eliminate Human Error
  • Free Yourself From Day-to-Day Management

Data is your company’s lifeblood.  Protect it.
