What is a datacenter?
A datacenter, also called a server farm, is a facility used to house computer systems and associated components, such as telecommunications, applications and storage systems. It generally includes redundant or backup power supplies, redundant data communications connections, environmental controls (e.g., air conditioning, fire suppression) and security devices.
What type of services does i.t.works offer?
rack space - move your existing equipment into the datacenter to give you peace of mind.
virtual desktops - stop buying pc's and utilize a lower cost lower maintenance solution to connect to your information.
offsite backup (online) - worried about those tapes, stop worrying and rely on our online offsite backup solution. Co-location between Hattiesburg and Birmingham is available.
servers (virtual or physical, in the cloud) - are your applications slowing down, are you tired of the cost related to purchasing new physical servers and the labor associated with maintaining them, then consider utilizing our servers "in the cloud". We can host most applications and serve them directly to your users wherever they are.
application hosting -
exchange (fully hosted and serviced)

Why should my organization consider moving our server environment to a datacenter?
Infrastructure Cost Savings:
Take advantage of our secure facility, custom built for data center storage, without taking on the financial burden of maintaining your own facility.
A tremendous investment of time and resources is required to maintain a suitable facility for e-mail, web site, network and applications servers. By outsourcing your data center to i.t.works your staff can focus on initiatives focused on increasing revenue.
Lower Maintenance Costs:
Computing environments need stable power, emergency back-up systems, controlled access, and carefully monitored climates. These requirements can quickly expend your time and financial resources. i.t.works provides an effective and secure environment that meets stringent business requirements, at a fraction of the cost of an in-house data center.
Alleviate Operational Expenses:
By locating your computing environment in our datacenter, your business can take advantage of a professional staff that is highly skilled in running and managing a data center. Additionally, your access to functional expertise is increased, without burdening internal resources. Your staff members can spend their time innovating and developing new ways to improve your IT systems, rather than simply keeping things running.
Improve Security without Increasing Costs:
The importance of protecting your information and equipment against disaster and outside influences is a critical priority, but is also expensive to manage and maintain. Our data center facility provides multiple redundant state-of-the-art security features that includes:
Secured card access
High-security, tamper-proof cabinets with specially keyed locks

How are other companies adopting datacenter services?
There are a wide variety of adopted uses of the datacenter. Many new companies are fully adopting the virtual capabilities by using virtual desktops connecting to virtual servers that exist in the datacenter. However, established companies may transition to this environment by moving older equipment into the datacenter by leasing rack space. Then as their equipment is outdated replace one server at a time with virtual servers. All organizations differ and we would recommend consulting with one of our technical consultants to see how these new services can help your organization lower risk and cost.
