Why choose Intermedia? Because not all clouds are created equal

Let’s say you’re choosing between various hosted Exchange cloud providers.  If you ask about what’s under the hood, any provider will be happy to tell you about their technology.

When this happens, remember that there are two things that matter when you’re choosing an Exchange hosting cloud provider: technology AND experience.Screen Shot 2014-01-15 at 10.43.25 AM

In this age of cloud-related buzzwords, anyone can acquire technology. But experience isn’t something that can be bought.

So what’s inside Intermedia’s hosted Exchange cloud? Technology AND experience.

First, let’s talk technology

The cloud that powers Intermedia’s hosted Exchange is purpose-built to give small businesses the kind reliability enjoyed by the biggest Fortune 500 companies. Our commitment to reliability extends across the three most critical elements of cloud computing:

  1. Performance. Our cloud minimizes network latency while maximizing processing capacity.
  2. Availability. Our cloud delivers 99.999% uptime with an industry-leading, financially backed service-level agreement.
  3. Data protection and security. Our single greatest responsibility is to protect your data. This commitment permeates every aspect of our cloud and extends across our entire company.

We host our cloud in top-tier SSAE16 SOC 1 Type II compliant datacenters. We connect it to the Internet via tier 1 providers like Level 3, UUnet, and Global Crossing. And we leverage best-of-breed technology and—most importantly—the knowledge and wisdom of some of the world’s foremost cloud experts.

Now, let’s talk experience

Our Exchange cloud was born in 2000, long before “cloud” was a buzzword. And from the moment of conception, it was built to prioritize performance, availability and data protection.

Today our cloud powers more Exchange accounts than any provider outside of Microsoft itself. Over 700,000 users rely on it for communication, collaboration and content management.

Anyone can procure hardware. But very few companies have over a decade of experience augmenting, refining and accelerating their cloud. With this experience, Intermedia stands alone.
