Cloud Services

With higher bandwidth comes greater connectivity from virtually anywhere. The Cloud is THE place to centrally manage your standard MS Office suites and other business app services – and ADVANCED application and cloud hosting services are THE choice for more and more organizations. Here’s why:


ADVANCED provides access-card/password-protected server colocation space at the new cutting-edge Cyrus One facility in Norwalk, Connecticut – the state’s largest high-bandwidth data center, delivering world-class cloud computing in a secure, 24-hour uninterrupted power environment. You’ll have private cloud backup space in a locked cabinet within this ultra-secure facility.

Anytime/anywhere access to your business applications and data is critical. We’ve built our remote deployment strategy around the Citrix family of products, including XenApp, and XenDesktop. You can deploy applications – even single desktops – from a centrally managed server or load-balanced server “farm.” Application server hosting is the ideal access solution whether used for offsite connectivity, remote satellite offices or as the primary application deployment strategy for all of your corporate users.

Extremely user-friendly
The app icon appears on the local desktop exactly as it would for any locally installed application. The magic happens when the user clicks the icon – the application launches and connects to the hosted Citrix server completely behind the scenes. From the end-user’s perspective, the application simply…runs.

Choice of configurations
Citrix Xen remote access can be deployed in several device-specific configurations. Any standard PC desktop or laptop can use the Citrix Xen client to connect to the application server. Thin client diskless workstation devices can also be a great option (or even single users with specifically identified roles), completely eliminating the need to purchase, configure and maintain a desktop PC for every employee. There’s also a Citrix Receiver app for the Apple IOS, to connect users to Citrix Xen published applications using the iPad and iPhone.


How long can you afford to be down? We’ll help you determine which disaster recovery systems are essential to business continuity – and whether you need a “hot site” that continually replicates your local working network or a partial network that replicates only your most critical business processes. With your systems replicated to the CyrusOne data center, YOU choose which users can remotely access applications in the event of a disaster.

It all starts with understanding
Systems replication is the final step in a Disaster Recovery plan. We must begin with a thorough understanding of your current systems, how they operate, how they’re maintained, and most critically, how they’re backed up. A good starting point is to have ADVANCED perform a site survey and analysis, to better gauge where you are – and where you need to be.
