Managed Hosting

Most of ACT solutions are delivered through a managed hosting model. This means that your systems are run on high quality hardware in a secure data centre environment. The result is that service access is highly resilient – your systems are always there working for you.

Using managed hosting ensures a clear operating model and defined standard operating procedures, which deliver consistent high availability. Service level availability is measured 24 hours per day 365 days per year. Our infrastructure is housed in UK hosting facilities which are secure, have resilient power supply, resilient cooling and redundant network connectivity.
