Documents Online Opts for Private Cloud Hosting from UK-based RapidSwitch

Hosting provider RapidSwitch, part of UK cloud company iomart Group plc, has been selected by Documents Online to host its new electronic document management (EDM) software in a secure, private cloud.

Documents Online, which is part of information management specialist IPC Group and based in St Ives, Cambridgeshire, has launched a new package of cloud-based EDM software which uses icons rather than the traditional ‘tree structure’ that most systems use. The company’s customers range from payroll specialists to intellectual property consultants so it needed a reliable and secure environment in which to host the new software.

New EDM software

The private cloud solution for Documents Online will be housed in the Maidenhead, UK, data center of RapidSwitch.

Documents Online carries out all work remotely via the web from initial demonstrations to system specification and set up, right through to training. Its key requirements from RapidSwitch were sophisticated monitoring, KVM over IP availability, dedicated network firewall and security features, an easy-to-use control panel and 24/7 support.

“Customers trust us to store thousands of important documents such as contracts, invoices and purchase orders,” said Graham Light, Director of Documents Online. “Having our new EDM software securely hosted on a private cloud in RapidSwitch’s UK data centre means those customers can relax, knowing that we control and support the software for them twenty four hours a day.”

Based in Maidenhead, Berkshire, dedicated server and cloud hosting company RapidSwitch hosts approximately 20,000 servers for a wide range of clients. Its clients include streaming service providers, gaming companies, voice over IPs (VOIP) and global media broadcasters.
