The Benefits of Managed Hosting
Managed hosting provides solutions for day-to-day situations your collection is facing, ranging from security concerns and financial constraints to remote access. Here are a few of the benefits you will unlock with managed hosting.
Significant Cost Savings for IT and Hardware
With Gallery Systems managed hosting, all IT-related tasks as well as hardware and operating systems costs are handled by us, your hosting service provider. Your institution avoids the risk of unexpected expenses caused by faulty or outdated technology, safeguarding your operating budget.
Updates and Backups on Your Schedule
When your CMS is hosted by Gallery Systems, your IT department no longer needs to perform software upgrades, service pack updates, or database backups. Your software is updated by our dedicated hosting team to ensure your institution is always using the newest, most secure version, complete with the latest features and functionality. Database backups are managed and securely stored to provide a permanent safety net for all your CMS operations.
Secure, 24/7 Access from Anywhere
Maintaining the security of your collections data is always our priority. “Our hosted solution is highly secure, not only digitally but also physically,” Wil explains. “Our clients access their collections information via end-to-end encrypted communications, which can be further limited to their specific locations.”
Managed hosting provides round-the-clock, secure access to your CMS information from a desktop computer, laptop, or hand-held device. This versatility makes browser-based software invaluable for employees working remotely, either from their home office or while traveling. The only requirements are Internet connectivity and a supported browser.
Your Data Belongs to You
Gallery Systems doesn’t limit your institution’s ownership of its collections information in any way. Your data remains the exclusive property of your institution, with access limited to the specified staff members and roles that you define.
