MyBroadband will host its inaugural Cloud and Hosting Conference on 9 June 2015 at the Gallagher Convention Centre in Midrand.
We, BitCo, have proudly engaged with MyBroadband as a literature Sponsor for the event.
Conference delegates can expect to learn more about hosting services, data centres, cloud computing, virtualisation, hosting infrastructure, and connectivity.
BitCo offers fast, reliable Internet connectivity for cloud computing
Internet connectivity is a key element to cloud computing, so a fast, reliable connection is essential.
Security and convenience are the key elements that make cloud hosting so attractive.
Even if your physical location is being affected by load shedding, your information is still safely stored in the cloud.
If you have a UPS or a small generator on site, you can either power down your equipment safely in the event of an outage or continue working as you don’t need to power up a huge server.
Your information is literally available anywhere and is not restricted by geographic locations.
Even in the event of a natural disaster, your information is safely stored in a data centre with enhanced security features.
The importance of a fast, reliable connection
To enjoy these features, however, you need a connection that you can rely on, and BitCo offers 99% guaranteed uptime.
Having a fast connection, means no lag or delays, so you won’t feel the difference between your locally hosted servers versus cloud hosted server storage.
You can continue your day to day work with no hassles as information is retrieved from your offsite server in real time.
The faster your internet connection, the more you are able to simulate the experience of having an onsite server.
Choosing the right connection
3G/4G is an option for connectivity, however you are reliant on the signal the device can pick up at the time, how many other users are on the specific base station you are connecting to, or if you are just an inch out of range.
Mobile data is also incredibly expensive.
Fixed line services are therefore a better option, and high-end fixed line services are even better.
BitCo offers a Premium Fibre and Wireless connectivity service which comes in three simple packages (depending in your business needs):
- Compact: Small business
- Commercial: SMME
- Corporate: large, enterprise or high bandwidth demanding customers.
BitCo are also able to prioritise cloud services, making your cloud connection even more enjoyable.
