At Ahead-IT we offer out-of-the-box preconfigured turn-key private and public cloud solutions with integrated backup and disaster recovery.
Here you can find some examples, but basically we custom build everything to the client desires. This can be a combination of networking + VMware for VPS + Open-E JovianDSS for VPS and SMB/NFS storage. All components we supply are high availability, so no downtime is possible or limited to a virtual machine reboot time, typically less than 5 minutes.
