INFRASTRUCTURE AS A SERVICE (IAAS)
You need infrastructure, but you don’t want
to look after it.

4way Solutions IaaS service hosts the infrastructure
components traditionally present in an on-premises
datacentre, including: servers, storage and networking
hardware, as well as the virtualization or hypervisor layer.
This allows you to look after the important things in life
such as the business applications but offload the tedious
hardware and network maintenance to us.

6 Core benefits of IAAS

Data centre level security
and reliability

Scalability

Public Cloud
The public cloud refers to the managed
datacentres owned and operated by large
multi-national companies such as Amazon
AWS and Microsoft Azure.

The Public Cloud is built to run global web-scale
applications such as Facebook, Spotify, Instagram etc
and is an excellent place to house your internet facing,
publicly accessible business applications. The public
cloud offers services over and above simple IaaS; such
as managed database solutions, cost-effective object
storage and managed code execution environments
enabling “server-less” application deployment.

Benefits of the public cloud

Pay as you use with
no commitments

Deliver business applications
globally, from local datacentres

24×7 business support

Deploy server-less
applications

Large catalogue of tightly
integrated managed services

Deploy highly available applications without managing infrastructure

Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS)
4way offer hypervisor agnostic disaster recovery
solutions by leveraging VEEAM’s agent and
agentless backup and replication services.

We can accept VM replica’s using VEEAM’s replication technologies for supported hypervisors (VMware/Hyper-V) or we can offer Agent based disaster recovery for unsupported hypervisors, public clouds or physical servers.

In addition to providing compute resources required for your DR we also offer rich and flexible remote access solutions to access the environment. Contact your account manager for a demo today!

Desktop as a Service (DaaS)
4way Solutions in conjunction with Citrix offer a fully
hosted desktop service, we have a desktop to cater
for all needs from the light standard business
application users up to high-end CAD Users.

Desktop as a Service refers to a service whereby the user’s desktop
environment runs in a remote data centre. In other words, the
applications, documents, web browsing etc are all executed by
servers which live in a secure, offsite location. What the user sees on
their screen is, in essence, a picture of what is happening somewhere
else. Imagine for a second that you had a very long keyboard, mouse
and monitor cable that stretched all the way to a secure data centre
and all you had on your desk was the actual mouse, keyboard and
monitor with the odd printer and scanner in the office.

Data Centre level security
and reliability

Extreme portability of the desktop
across multiple devices

Hardware efficiency through
high-density servers

Simplified compliance
through centralisation
