The cloud is changing the way organizations approach their IT infrastructure, turning capital expenditure into an operational cost. As a cloud provider, EXPLORE-TECH hosts servers and storage for clients who no longer have to buy hardware outright.

We know that many businesses want cloud benefits without having to abandon their IT investments. Others are looking to take the first tentative steps to align their infrastructure to the new delivery model. We can help on all counts.

For clients who want to avoid the continuous cycle of hardware investment, we host racks of rentable computer power and storage in our data center, delivering all your IT needs from the cloud. Virtual Desktops and Disaster Recovery solutions can also be pre-packaged for consumption.

EXPLORE-TECH has specific software competencies that play an important role in the cloud:

Virtualization: as an accredited Microsoft Hyper-V and VMware specialist, we can virtualize your server estate, the first step to a cloud-ready environment that cuts costs and makes your business more flexible while reducing the data center footprint.

System Management:EXPLORE-TECH is a leading Microsoft Services Ready Partner for deploying System Center, a suite of IT management tools that complement a cloud strategy. Being able to detect, diagnose, and correct problems while automating the most common management tasks, System Center allows a business to retain control and visibility of its infrastructure.

We also apply our software development skills to Window Azure, Microsoft’s public cloud platform, which we use to host applications and services that are delivered back to our clients.
