Our solutions are typically hosted across multiple clouds, so that failures or cyber attacks on multiple clouds will not impact the solution, provided the majority of clouds are unaffected. We typically recommend distribution of the solution across five cloud regions, ideally operated by different cloud service providers, because there is significant security benefit and little cost impact.
Clients may choose to contract directly with the relevant cloud service providers or use our cloud hosting arrangement service, which is provided at a small premium compared to the cloud service provider fees.
The hosting costs typically include:
- server provision in each cloud
- encrypted data storage (production & archive)
- encrypted data transfer (charged for download only)
