It’s estimated the global Hardware as a Service (HaaS) market will exceed $300 billion by 2027. The pay-as-you-go model has been popular during the pandemic because businesses were away from their offices and needed a more adaptable and accessible solution.
Hardware as a Service makes owning a server easier than ever. Mixing renting and colocation provides the most flexible deal for your needs with minimal upfront cash funding.
If you want to invest in your own hardware, but don’t want to pay for everything up front, contact us about our Hardware as a Service options.
Hardware as a Service Benefits
ELIMINATE YOUR SERVER CLOSET: The server room started as a business necessity. Network equipment was easy to understand and cost-effective; a computer rack and/or a patch panel was all that was needed. No ventilation system, exhaust fans, or Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) necessary. Businesses could get away with just the bare essentials in the 90’s and the early aughts, but times have changed. Now, companies need a fast and nonstop operation for system deployment, usually requiring a few dedicated server machines. These servers need tender loving care, like tons of cooling, HVAC, a UPS fed from a generator, and so on. A HaaS option is a great way to start retiring your out-of-date equipment in your less than secure location.
REDUCE UPFRONT COSTS: For some businesses, the cost of new managed server hardware is hard to justify. HostDime’s Hardware as a Service provides clients a complete IT hardware server solution in one low-cost, predictable monthly plan. This solution is ideal for both existing and new colocation clients who are looking to reduce the overhead costs of new hardware.
REDUNDANCY: What are your redundancy plans? Do you care if your servers go down for an hour, a day, a week? If so, removing single points of failure is the key. A uninterruptible power supply fed by a generator is essential for short-term power when the other power source fails. Battery backups on everything from routers to switches must also be set up for redundancy. HaaS gives you total peace of mind to no longer worry about hardware concerns.
SUPERIOR TROUBLESHOOTING AND MAINTENANCE: Going this route means you are no longer responsible for maintenance on your machines. If something fails, the server will be looked into immediately. These servers also get proactive care and updates to ensure smooth sailing. Best of all, you will no longer have to pay for repairs or swap out components.
