Benefits of Cloud Hosting with Nfina
In today’s digital age, businesses are seeking new ways to streamline their operations, enhance their online presence, and save money. With unparalleled flexibility, scalability, and cost-effectiveness, cloud hosting has revolutionized how we store and access data. If you’re considering moving to the cloud, Nfina Technologies Cloud is a great choice. Nfina-Cloud offers more benefits in comparison to the public Hyperscale Cloud.
Built on a Fully Redundant Clustered Architecture
Nfina’s Hypervisors and SAN storage devices use High Availability (HA) clustered technology, which is fault-tolerant and fully redundant. There is no single point of failure in this architecture because all of the network feeds, power feeds, network switches, firewalls, NICs, and storage drives are also redundant. Furthermore, Nfina’s high-performance infrastructure ensures excellent speed and reliability for seamless operations. Their state-of-the-art data centers, equipped with redundant systems, minimize downtime and ensure uninterrupted access to your applications and data.
VMware® Based Technology
Nfina’s Hypervisors use clustering technology from VMware® ESXi™, which is managed and controlled by VCenter™ software from VMware and Nfina-View software from Nfina. VMware ESXi is included in Nfina’s Cloud Hosting Solution at no additional charge.
Designed for 99.999% Uptime
Since all devices and feeds in Nfina’s cloud are clustered and redundant, there is no single point of failure. The failover time minimizes any outage down to minutes per year.
24/7 US Based Email & Phone Support
Nfina’s HQ is in Mobile, Alabama. All Design, Support, and Customer Service Engineers are based here. Nfina offers round-the-clock support from our knowledgeable Engineers who are ready to assist with any technical issues or concerns. Their responsive customer service ensures smooth communication and prompt resolutions whenever needed. If you call or email for Nfina support, you get one of our Engineers to assist you.
Since Nfina is a hardware manufacturer, the price for compute and storage is very competitive. Nfina offers competitive pricing per vCPU, per GB of RAM, and per TB of storage when compared to other cloud vendors. Network packages are unmetered, and there are no egress charges to retrieve your data.
Our cloud is hosted in a world-class data center (AUBix), right outside of Auburn, AL. AUBix® is built to Nfina’s redundancy standards including redundant UPS, N+1 generator backup and N+1 redundant cooling.
White Glove Service
Nfina has very responsive computer engineering support experts that help with migration to our cloud, as well as troubleshooting, application patching, help desk, support, backups, restoration, etc.
No Learning Curve
No scouring through books and the interenet to learn how to setup your own cloud hosting. We have the technology and the experts to host your next compute and data solution.
Supports Multiple Locations and Geo-Redundant DR
Nfina’s Cloud Hosting Technology can support multiple geographic redundant disaster recovery sites. We can support storage array snapshots (one-to-many and many-to-one) as well as a Veeam® Cloud Connect™ to support multiple clouds and disaster recovery. Many of our hyperscale competitors only offer geo-redundant storage and no direct support when you need it most.
Daily Storage Array Snapshot Backups
Nfina’s base cloud offering includes a weeks worth of daily snapshots at no additional charge. Snapshots can be taken at any time interval that you prefer.
Nfina’s public-facing cloud is very secure. The AUBix® data center has world-class access and monitored protection. AUBix® has SOC II certification audits to prove it is ready to handle your most sensitive data.
Nfina uses the latest cybersecurity software zero trust stacks and firewall technology to ensure your data is protected from bad foreign actors (i.e. Ransomware). Our systems are capable of rollbacks to restore VMs, LUNs, and File shares at the storage array level within minutes of an attack if all incoming countermeasure protections fail.
Supports VEEAM Cloud Connect and Backup Products
Nfina is a Veeam partner and can provide optional Veeam backup protection at the VM level for Nfina’s cloud as well as from Microsoft’s® Azure™ (i.e. Office 365™, Email, Exchange™, SharePoint™, etc.).
Nfina provides unmetered bandwidth options, including dedicated circuits if required. We also provide multiple firewall options, including hosted, Fortinet® with duo factor authentication, and we’ll even support your own firewall.
Migrating to the Cloud
Migrating from premise-based computing to cloud-based computing is straightforward for all forms of Linux® and Windows® servers and applications. Nfina’s Professional IT services resources are readily available to help you perform these tasks.
Cloud hosting has revolutionized the way businesses manage their infrastructure and data storage. With its flexibility, scalability, and cost-effectiveness, it is no wonder that more and more companies are turning to cloud hosting solutions, and Nfina Technologies stands out as a beneficial provider.
