Managed Hosting Services System Components

Managed Hosting Services

Ambition Enterprise is offered in the Cloud as a fully managed service by Online50 Limited.  We are a specialist hosting company and have been offering hosted business information systems since 2001.  All of our hosting services are backed by our industry leading 7 minute SLA.

Standard Application Hosting:
The Online50 Service

The original service providing access to hosted accountancy software, since it's launch in 2001 the Online50 service has provided managed access to applications on demand.  Users subscribe to whichever applications they choose, with a menu of well over 100 applications available currently.  Originally focussed on Sage50 accounts, the Online50 service is still the best platform available to host whichever version you choose of the UK's favourite accounting software, together with a range of complementary software packages all available on an opt-in, opt-out calendar month subscription.

Ideal For: Companies needing access to standard software in a controlled and fully managed environment.  Typically customers need less than 10 users (there is no upper limit).

Custom Application Hosting:
The ECP Service

Our Elastic Computing Platform (ECP) provides servers (Elastic Computers) to your users to enable you to run any software you need (subject to licence).  We ensure that the system is setup correctly for you and work closely with your software vendors to ensure that the system operates properly in our environment.  Although the server is dedicated to you it runs in our managed environment, which allows you to connect to other services and data — for example using a fault tolerant SQL Server cluster rather than building your own, or connecting to Sage datasets hosted on the Online50 service.  As we do not know the software on the ECP software we cannot support your application software, but we do support the infrastructure and environment.

Ideal For: Companies that need access to a defined set of software in a managed environment.  Typically ECP Servers serve 5 or more users.

Complete Hosted IT:
The Cloudsourced.IT Service

Companies that want to move their IT into "the Cloud" can use the Cloudsourced.IT service to do so.  This is a completely managed service based around providing Cloud Desktops to your users with a defined set of sofwtare loaded.  Changes to your system are carried out on a managed project basis and normally provide a way to roll back any problem upgrades.  Also known as a Virtual Desktop Infrastructre (VDI) a fully managed cloud based infrastructure is increasingly being seen as the way to get best value and performance from your IT budget.

Ideal For: Companies that want to move their operations into the Cloud with a trusted provider.  Typically customers have at least 10 users.
