Hosted Services

 

Hosted services like SaaS (Software as a Service), IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service) and PaaS (Platform as a Service) are now mature and cost-effective alternatives to running all your IT on your own site.

BCC offers a range of these integrated hosted solutions, allowing you to retain control of your systems whilst outsourcing the storage, maintenance and security burdens associated with in-house deployments.

 

What we offer

Your specific business requirements will dictate the best solution for your organisation, so BCC's hosted services include:

 

 

Hosted Exchange

Microsoft Exchange Server is the most renowned messaging and collaboration service in the world. It’s the driving force for all the e-mails and information sharing features of Microsoft Outlook. 

Exchange is a complex application that requires intensive knowledge to deploy; consequently the cost to a small business can be large because:

  • Multiple servers are required to implement Exchange to best-practice standards.
  • The hardware and software costs of setting up these servers alone may be outside of the budget of a business.
  • Additionally, they need physical space to house them, along with the cost of support.

A hosted solution provides all of the functionality and features of an Exchange environment without the upfront costs, worries or difficulties. With BCC’s Hosted Exchange, we set up, maintain and administer your Exchange system and charge a monthly, scalable per-user fee.  Everything is managed for you, from virus scanning, spam protection, service maintenance, backup and software upgrades.

 

Hosted Desktop

BCC’s Hosted Desktop gives you the freedom to access your files, business applications and emails wherever there’s an Internet connection. You’ll see your own virtual desktop, just as you would at the office, on any device – laptop, PC, smartphone or tablet.

Hosted Desktop provides full functionality of the business tools you use every day - Microsoft Office, Sage, CRM apps and many more. Customise your users’ desktops with access to the specific software they need.

There’s no need to worry about buying, maintaining or backing up your own servers. Everything is hosted in our ISO27001 certified UK data centres with maximum security and reliability. All of your data stays safe and protected within UK borders and technical support is on-hand 365 days of the year.

Hosted Desktop is a fully managed service. There’s no need to spend on IT infrastructure because all a user needs to access their virtual desktop is their device. Operation is simple, and it’s easy for an administrator to control which software and apps each user can access. BCC Hosted Desktop gives businesses the benefits of an enterprise-class solution without the hassle or upfront costs of running a dedicated server.

Hosted Application

With similar principles to Hosted Desktop, BCC’s Hosted Application service offers centrally maintained software applications such as Sage, Microsoft SQL or SharePoint.

BCC recognise that application data no longer needs to be stored on or synced between multiple local machines via the cloud. The Hosted Application solution takes the software favoured by your business and installs it once on a high security, high speed server. No need for data copies. No need for downloads. Your data is stored in one place ensuring instant synchronisation for multiple users.

If your database requirements have outgrown your current infrastructure, consider moving the burden to BCC’s high security, high speed servers that allow you to efficiently manipulate massive amounts of data. Alternatively, if you’re happy with your current infrastructure but would like to increase the availability of key applications by making them available anywhere, anytime and from any device then Hosted Applications are for you.

As with the Hosted Desktop, you and your employees can access your live application data simultaneously whether you are using your PC, Mac, iPad, android or iPhone.

What to expect from us

We have invested heavily in setting up a secure, state-of-the-art data centre so you can take advantage of hosted services like SaaS, PaaS and IaaS without the usual associated cost. If you choose to utilise BCC’s Hosted Services you will be hosted on equipment owned and operated by BCC, we do not outsource!

Our employees can move from site to site and no matter where they log in, they are presented with the exact same desktop and with familiar access to applications and files, all of which means they are immediately productive from the moment they log on.

“Because we have more than 15 locations and 165 users, we need the flexibility for them to be able to work from anywhere. BCC consultants listened to our requirements and recommended that we implement Citrix Desktop. This enables our users to log on with netbooks at any of our locations and be presented with the exact same desktop and file structure every time. Security of our data is also important to us, and BCC have taken care of that requirement by complimenting this easy access with 2-factor authentication using RSA tokens.”
