Scalable & Flexible Cloud Application Hosting

ProfitBricks offers reliable, scalable, and cost-effective computing resources

Until now, businesses, from SMBs to large enterprises, had to build and maintain their own IT infrastructure to run on-premises applications. The advent of Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) offers businesses the very same applications typically accessed using a web browser.  The applications also feature fully seamless product upgrades, some integration with existing data and systems, and lower costs due to subscription-based usage pricing.

More and more companies are adopting SaaS solutions for new requirements and replacing on-premise applications with SaaS solutions.  It simply does not make sense to run hardware in a secure, redundant facility, as IT is increasingly seen as a non-core function that can be cut back.

And now most ISVs and other application providers and integrators are rapidly moving their applications into the Cloud. Cloud Computing provides reliable, scalable, and cost-effective computing resources to host SaaS applications.


Benefits of Hosting Applications in the Cloud

  • Easy to use
    ISVs, application developers and vendors can quickly and securely host SaaS applications – whether an existing application or a new SaaS-based application. Second-generation IaaS providers, like ProfitBricks, offer the Data Center Designer (DCD) GUI interfaces and APIs that makes it simple and easy to architect, configure, provision, and manage Cloud Computing data centers.
  • Flexible
    Just like an in-house data center or testing environment, the Cloud lets ISVs select the operating system, programming language, web application platform, database, and other services you need. Since your team can create a virtual environment that looks and operates exactly like your in-house infrastructure, the migration process for existing applications is incredibly easy, while providing options for building new solutions.
  • Cost-Effective
    With its pay-per use, consumption –based model, an ISV or its customers will only pay only for the compute power, storage, and other resources they or their customers consume, with no contracts or up-front commitments.

  • Scalability with High-Performance
    ISVs should select a Cloud Computing provider that offers flexible scaling options – horizontal and vertical scaling options can vary widely at different providers. Using a robust, high-performance network, like InfiniBand which runs at 80 Gbit/s, gives customers the ability to use massive compute and storage resources on-demand.
  • Safe and Secure
    ISVs should select a Cloud provider who utilizes an end-to-end approach to secure and harden its infrastructure, including physical, operational, and software measures.
