Application Hosting Services refers to computing platforms that enable the delivery of software via the Internet. Application Hosting Services can provide an operational platform for virtually any type of software application.
Content management applications, web development applications, database applications and email management applications serve as common examples of on-demand software that may be hosted via the Internet. Application Hosting Services are inclusive of Managed Hosting Services, which provide a higher level of service to client users, as compared to standard Application Hosting Services.
Managed Hosting Services providers deliver a level of support that goes beyond what’s offered with basic Application Hosting Services, such as: 24/7 monitoring, ongoing application maintenance (e.g. software updates) and business continuity services for mission critical applications. Manged Hosting Services providers promote an advanced level of service delivery in the following areas: availability, reliability, security, scalability and compliance (e.g. healthcare or financial industries). The most competitive Managed Hosting Services providers offer a 100% up time (application/platform availability) guarantee, which can be achieved through the proper use of virtualization and automated disaster recovery fail-over technologies.
