System 7 Manage
Managed Web hosting for System 7 installations
In the highly competitive digital publishing market, publishers face conflicting pressures
to minimize costs and improve their services. System 7 Hosting
makes it possible to achieve both objectives with both System 7 Platform and
System 7 Express hosting accounts
that are available on a subscription basis, enabling publishers to operate digital publications without their own hosting
Hosted System 7 provision provides the following benefits:
- A single fixed monthly cost
System 7 Hosting is provided for a fixed monthly cost, which includes support, software licenses, server
account administration, database backup and many other features that would normally have to be handled by the
publisher. By purchasing these items through a single agreement, publishers can greatly reduce their costs
and simplify their operations (digital publications can be managed entirely through System 7 control panels
on a private website).
Note: in circumstances where high profile digital publications experience large traffic loads additional hosting
resources such as bandwidth and database space may be purchased from System 7
- The latest software on tap
The System 7 team constantly upgrades its managed servers in a way that ensures that no digital publication is broken in
the process. This means that publishers gain instant access to the latest features and technologies,
which are developed in response to feedback and requests received from a wide variety of customers and
evolving industry best practices.
- No server purchase or maintenance necessary
The purchase and maintanance of Web servers is both time consuming and costly. By using System 7 Hosting, publishers
can outsource this requirement entirely. System 7 Hosting accounts run from state-of-the-art
64-bit server machines, which are operated from a facility in Docklands, London, and shortly from a new facility
in the US.
- Fanatical user support
Because System 7 is dedicated solution provider for publishers, it understands the critical importance of support in
making digital publications a success. Engineers in the System 7 team have spent many years with the product as it has
evolved, and working in the digital publishing market, which enables them to provide support to both non-technical
personnel such as editorial staff or advertising sales, and technical personnel such as Web developers who may be
working with a System 7 Platform solution.
- Rigorous data backup procedures
Many publishers do not realize the importance of backing up their content and digital publications until it is
too late, and some publishers believe they have sufficient procedures in place only to discover they are broken
at the point of failure. System 7 Hosting places backup operations in the hands of professionals, providing
peace of mind and further cost savings.
- 24-hour site monitoring
System 7 monitors its sites 24-7 using automated systems, and is the first to know of a problem when something
goes wrong, providing a further layer of benefit to publishers.
