Timico, the business internet, hosting and communications service provider, has launched a new dedicated server solution to help support businesses with a need for always-on hosting and connectivity.
With server downtime the number one IT issue affecting small to mid-sized businesses in the UK (Icomm Technologies, November 2012) dedicated and managed servers are fast becoming the go-to solution for companies that demand consistent and reliable connectivity.
Timico’s guaranteed uptime figure of 99.99 per cent beats off stiff competition from its competitors, with rival uptime projections usually only guaranteed at 99.9 per cent – equating to nearly nine hours of lost business in a year.
Trefor Davies, Timico’s CTO, said: “Businesses are getting accustomed to working in an ‘always on’ environment but it’s imperative to have the connectivity to back this up. We live in a digital age and the cost of extended downtime can be colossal – especially for SMEs.
“Take pay-per-click advertising for example. If cash is being pumped into this form of advertising only for it to route to an offline website, all of that investment is wasted. Our 99.99% uptime guarantee, which equates to just 52 minutes of downtime per year, allows your business to stay up, running and making money.
Connectivity and website availability are essential throughout a business, so it pays to invest in the best and most reliable server available.”
The dedicated servers are securely housed in Timico’s Tier 3+ data centre which is actively monitored 24 hours a day by staff in the on-site Network Operations Centre. This means the server itself, data centre infrastructure and network are all monitored by one team, allowing any issues to be resolved before serious downtime can occur.
