|An Application Infrastructure Provider builds and maintains a secure and reliable
environment in which developers and Application Service Providers (ASPs) can
develop and host their applications. An Application Infrastructure Provider like
AO Industries differs from a traditional web hosting company in that we understand
and empathize specifically with developers and ASPs. We know that they often play
many roles: from automator to ambassador, from enabler to troubleshooter. Our goal
is to make the tasks of application development, deployment, and maintenance as
smooth as possible.
The facets of service that we cover are:|
Server Security and
We maintain all aspects of the server's physical and informational security,
as well as ensuring its accessibility and maintaining the effectiveness and
operational readiness of its hardware.
We take every possible precaution to preserve an account's security from the
server side. Passwords and credit card numbers are not stored in unencrypted
form anywhere, and all unneeded accounts are promptly removed from the servers.
Maintenance and Support for Underlying Technologies
All technologies installed on our servers are maintained to their
latest stable versions,
and we attempt to keep older versions installed for backward
compatability wherever possible. This includes all software, scripts, and
supporting data up to, but not including, our clients' content and applications.
All data on the servers is backed up off-site on a daily basis, including all financial
transaction data, client account information, and config files.
and DNS Hosting
Support for email systems, DNS hosting, and database systems rounds out our list
of services, and provides much needed interconnectivity between the developer, the
end-user, and the data being processed.
