Intel Launches Online Managed Hosting Services
- By Scott Bekker
Intel Online Services Inc. today introduced AppChoice Managed Hosting Services, designed to bridge the gap between co-location services and fully managed hosting services.
AppChoice offers a pre-tested hosting platform that includes hardware, operating system, and applications, as well as the networking, infrastructure, and data protection components of an e-business solution.
The AppChoice services provide a foundation onto which ASPs, systems integrators, and customers can integrate their mission-critical e-business applications. In addition, Intel Online Services provides flexible tools that allow customers to monitor and control their chosen hosted applications. AppChoice services come with service level agreements for guaranteed response times to critical operational events. Personnel are available to monitor all aspects of application performance 24 hours a day with tailored responses and user-defined alerts according to customer preferences.
AppChoice is part of Intel Online Services' selection of service offerings, which range from fully managed and integrated e-business solutions to co-location services. - Isaac Slepner
