With the development of technology, and stabilization of internet networks, an increasing need has arisen for managing organizational information beyond companies’ physical boundaries. Today’s organizational IT industry is very broad-based, requiring critical attention to issues such as: online availability anytime, anywhere; large storage, transmission and retrieval of data and information in fixed orientations, ongoing maintenance, and reasonable costs for overall activity.

Working on the EDEA cloud – SaaS

EDEA is pleased to launch its SaaS solution for small and medium-sized customers on cloud computing, for the institutional and retail market both in Israel and abroad.

 

So what is cloud hosting?

Cloud hosting is a state in which a virtual server simulates an actual physical server. Any software or operating system may be installed on it, defining the required hardware resources, such as: processors, discs, memory, etc. Working on a cloud essentially simulates an internet network, in which the data center and business logic of the organization are on the server farm on virtual machines, connected to the distant end users on internet infrastructures, thus saving us a great deal of maintenance, backup, and operations work.

 

This configuration provides you, the customer, with:

  • Access to information anytime, anywhere on web infrastructures through Chrome or Explorer browsers
  • Security for your information
  • Better access and control of information and data
  • Good communication between company employees in Israel and abroad
  • Flexibility in the use of resources (hardware and software)
  • Option of working on tablet and smartphone

 

 

With the development and expansion of customer activity and volume, hardware and software resources may be increased, and monthly costs will be adjusted accordingly i.e. the customer’s initial activity on the EDEA cloud may be conservative, relatively inexpensive and moderate, and later increased to a degree corresponding to business growth, without paying in advance.

  • Annual support service for software used, and more

Method of payment: monthly standing order including all annual service costs i.e. the customer will have a fixed costs according to which he may plan his business management.
