Traditional managed hosting providers often suffer from issues that cause general customer dissatisfaction. These providers are often unwilling to make the necessary investment to bring their offerings to parity with industry leaders, and they sometimes rely on outdated infrastructure and architectures which fall short for virtualized and cloud computing environments. They also depend on manual processing which leads to a number of issues including higher costs, inefficiency and human errors. Most offerings are static and inflexible, regularly taking two weeks or more to deploy standard environments, and locking customers into contracts for a year or more. Read this white paper to learn how one provider has developed a new breed of managed hosting for the cloud computing age.
