Support my co-location and managed hosting with the Bell network and data centres
Assessing the real costs of a modern data centre
A guide to co-location versus in-house
3 critical factors for successful data risk management
How to reduce risks in-house, in the cloud and anywhere in between
If you are looking for a hosting solution, there are three things you need to be absolutely sure of: availability, performance and security.
How do you do this? You need to ask the right questions. Find out where data centres are located, and what hosting, systems and storage capabilities you can access. Ask about security measures. Learn about the network that will deliver your applications and information. And make sure you do a comprehensive examination of a provider's service level agreements (SLAs) from end to end.
At Bell, our peerless network capabilities and data centres put us in a position to answer any questions you have about supporting your hosting needs. Bell offers a full range of data centre solutions, including:
