It is no secret that data centers can foster growth and escalate the efficiency of an enterprise. However, most of the companies are unable to concentrate on their core business due to the high costs and complexities of building and managing a data center. These organizations are now opting to utilize the services of data center solution providers to curb costs. PCM [NASDAQ:PCMI], a California based IT solutions and services provider is making its mark by offering next-gen data centers to facilitate business growth. The company delivers flexible data center hosting services combined with a hybrid approach, along with any time managed support services to minimize the costs associated with maintaining IT systems.

In addition to offering a wide range of high availability hosted data center services, the firm’s SSAE 16 enterprise-class facilities keep the applications available and secure in an economical manner. PCM provides several types of hosting services to match the different needs of an organization. It facilitates fully-managed hosting solutions that let companies outsource the complete management as well as host their own server environment. Meanwhile, their partially-managed hosting solution lets companies retain control over certain aspects of their systems while outsourcing others. The private cloud services of PCM provide valuable, instant infrastructure and enterprise-level performance for a monthly fee.

PCM’s enterprise class hosting facilities provide security-rich, controlled environments and high availability design features for business critical applications environments that need to be protected against natural disasters, power outages, network issues, and unauthorized access.
