What Is ProSight Virtual Hosting?
ProSight Virtual Hosting Services ConsultingCloud computing provides access to computing resources like processing, storage and applications remotely via the Internet rather than locally. Unlike public clouds such as Microsoft Azure and Amazon AWS, private clouds are used exclusively by a single organization, providing complete control over configuration and resource allocation. Progent's ProSight Virtual Hosting service combines proven virtualization technology, a state-of-the-art data center, and the support expertise of Progent's Microsoft Certified engineering team to provide small and midsize businesses with a comprehensive IT outsourcing alternative that enhances network dependability and security, eliminates management hassle, and saves money. With Progent's ProSight Virtual Hosting service, a small business can have its servers and critical applications hosted in a secure and fault tolerant data center on a fast, non-stop virtual host configured and maintained by Progent's network support experts.

By using virtualization technology, Progent can optimize the fault tolerance, security, performance, scalability, recoverability, and portability of the client's environment while keeping hosting expenses at a minimum. Progent's customers retain ownership of the operating system platforms and all application licenses while Progent owns the dedicated host servers and is responsible for their maintenance. This means that Progent's clients do not have to invest heavily in capital equipment that becomes quickly outdated. Virtualization also means that customers can easily and inexpensively move their entire IT environment to another host or take it in house if and when they believe such a move makes business sense.

A Smart Outsourcing Alternative for Small and Midsize Businesses
Small and midsize businesses lack the budget or the management time to build and maintain an on-site information network environment that can match the dependability, security, and support quality demanded by large companies. Unfortunately, network downtime, unresolved technical problems, security breaches, poor performance, and low service levels all impair productivity for businesses of any size, and in the case of small companies the relative damage caused by a serious network problem can be far greater than for a larger organization. Mission-critical and line-of-business applications are by definition vital to any organization, but larger enterprises have the economy of scale to build network infrastructures and hire IT support staffs that provide acceptably high degrees of reliability, security, performance, and support. Smaller companies do not.

Progent's ProSight Virtual Hosting service allows small businesses to get the benefits of enterprise-class IT infrastructure and world-class support services at a cost that is typically far lower than the cost of building and maintaining in-house datacenters and managing full-scale internal IT support groups.

Hybrid Cloud Solutions
Many organizations combine private and/or public cloud resources with networks located at their own site or sites. This so-called "hybrid cloud" model may be adopted because of security compliance regulations, performance requirements, business continuity strategies, specialized hardware, or other reasons. An example is an organization that uses a cloud-hosted Microsoft Exchange Server but is required to keep certain sensitive mailboxes on site. Progent can help you build cohesive hybrid solutions that seamlessly incorporate cloud-based and local infrastructure securely connected via site-to-site tunneling. (See Office 365 Integration with On-premises Environments.)

How ProSight Virtual Hosting Is Different from Conventional Application Hosting
With ASP (Application Service Provider) or SaaS (Software as a Service) hosting models, customers own their corporate data but not the operating system platforms or the application licenses for the software that is being maintained by the hosting service. Because it is expensive and time consuming to move from an ASP or SaaS hosting service to another hosting provider or to bring the entire system in house, small and midsize businesses with limited IT budgets effectively become captive to their hosting service.

With Progent's ProSight Virtual Hosting model, the customer owns the data, the operating system platforms, and the software applications. Because the environment is virtualized, it can be moved immediately to a different hardware environment without lengthy and risky reinstallation and configuration. With ProSight Virtual Hosting, you are not locked into a single hosting service.

Another benefit that stems from the virtualized architecture behind Progent's ProSight Virtual Hosting service is that data can be recovered quickly in case of a catastrophic event such as a natural disaster. Since the virtual environment is regularly backed up and archived off site, it can be hosted by any physical server acting as the underlying host to the virtual environment.

Progent will also host environments with a mix of operating system platforms and applications and little standardization. This type of environment is common for smaller businesses but is not addressed by application hosting services and is difficult to support for any hosting service that does not utilize a virtualized architecture or that does not retain a support staff with the depth and breadth of Progent's seasoned engineers. Public clouds, although fully virtualized, impose rigid standardization rules and offer little flexibility for controlling servers, supporting legacy applications, or accommodating in-house computing styles or legacy applications.
