BOS cloud hosting
Stay connected to your business.
Cloud hosting platforms like Amazon Web Services, have become great equalisers in IT over the past several years. They’ve availed complex n-tier system architectures with robust fault tolerances and contingencies, once only accessible to deep pocketed enterprises, for mere pennies on the hour.
However, many small and medium sized businesses overlook or resist these offerings, assuming they are too expensive, too complicated, or they simply discount them as over-engineering for their ‘simple’ web serving needs.
We couldn’t disagree more! Hosting in the cloud provides the opportunity to have a responsive, scalable, fault tolerant web application at any budget.
