MyHostedDSD – Cloud Hosting Service
CLOUD HOSTING SERVICE FROM DSD BUSINESS SYSTEMS
MyHostedDSD is for all Sage ERP and CRM products. MyHostedDSD is finally the cloud hosting service that meets all our criteria for reliability, speed, security, ease of use, affordability, and connectivity. MyHostedDSD is hosted by Amazon Web Services (AWS), one of the world leaders in Internet hosting services. MyHostedDSD benefits from the amazing power and breadth of resources that AWS provides to all its subscribers.
Sage suggests that there are three important factors to consider when choosing a hosting provider: Data Management and Security, Support, and Network Scalability.
Data Management and Security
How can you be sure that MyHostedDSD has the right security controls in place to protect your data? We are reassured by the certifications and evaluations that Amazon Web Services has undergone. Amazon Web Services was “validated as a Level 1 service provider under the Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standard (DSS).” Data is considered to be much more secure with MyHostedDSD than it is with in-house servers. The DSD Business Systems Blog, ERP In The Cloud: Myths and Facts, provides even further information about data management and security, along with other generally misunderstood cloud issues.
MyHostedDSD offers three hosting plans, Silver, Gold, and Platinum. These three plan options are designed to meet a wide range of support and budgetary requirements. At the highest hosting level, IT phone support is available on a 24/7 basis. All three plans include:
- Access to a dedicated IT team that provides network monitoring of security, data and system integrity, data backup, and disk usage
- Nightly backups and retention
- All operating system and database software
- Named user access to the cloud
- A complimentary network and internet connection quality and speed check
- Web interface and remote access software
- Disaster recovery services available
- Scheduled maintenance during off-hours only
There’s no hosting provider that adds more scalability than Amazon Web Services. Amazon uses an environment they named “Elastic Compute Cloud” that can allow our clients to quickly scale capacity, both up and down, as your computing requirements change. Your goal is to grow, and there’s no cloud hosting environment better equipped to help you do that.
How is MyHostedDSD Different?
DSD Business Systems and its clients have used many hosting services for Sage products, so we know their shortcomings, eccentricities and weaknesses. MyHostedDSD is a superset of those other services and is guaranteed to work with any Sage ERP or CRM system. MyHostedDSD will work with heavily modified systems, with third-party products in use, with multiple user access, and no matter how many other servers or connected services your system must have access to.
