Atum received silver for Best Small Business Solution provider at the CDN Elite Channel Awards!
We’re happy to announce that Atum reinforces itself yet again as a leader in small business server hosting solutions! We are proud to announce that we have received Silver in the Best Small Business Solution (IT Business) CDN’s Channel Elite Awards sponsored by Dell, Tech Data and D-Link.
As previously mentioned, the winners were announced at the CDN’s Channel Elite Awards Gala on September 16, 2010 in Toronto, Canada made to recognize IT solution providers for their leadership, innovation and commitment to creating value to their customers. The gala is designed to promote the business advantages that technology solutions can create and to recognize achievement in the channel.
The Best Small Business Solution Provider awards were given to companies that created the most innovative and problem solving solution for an organization or department with up to 100 seats. Atum’s solution is dedicated virtual server hosting that comes with managed hosting and unmanaged hosting options.
Atum is a small business itself and understands that other small businesses need help in competing among large corporations (we know how tough it is). Atum helps small businesses virtualize their IT infrastructures leveling their IT performance with enterprise giants, giving small businesses that competitive advantage.
A small business often finds it hard to perform on the same level as large enterprise but Atum’s fully managed dedicated server hosting solutions are able to provide them with the same resources. Our solution is based on hardware and software manufactured by our partners IBM, Microsoft, Citrix, RedHat, Hewlett Packard, Cisco, Symantec and Lenovo to deliver premium results for companies that may not afford to host in house. It’s very unlikely that a small business will be able to afford hardware and software by our partners if they do it inhouse and Atum’s plans start as low as $39/mo providing for that opportunity.
To better put cost cutting for a small business into perspective, it all comes down to price. Comparing this to a competitor’s pricing, to outsource a traditional physical server costs $420/month for a minimum package. This adds up to $5, 040 annual for small business managed dedicated server hosting.
Atum is able to offer the same managed server hosting solution for $89/month, adding up to $1, 068 for a managed server hosting solution. For an unmanaged hosting solution, we are able to offer packages as low as $390 annual! Even our highest managed server hosting solution plan adds up to $3, 108 annual making it $1, 932 cheaper than the minimum physical dedicated server solution from our competitor.
We don’t only provide small business hosting solutions that are able to cut costs while increasing performance but we are also small business focused and personal. We offer a variety of small business programs, incentives, discounts and open source solutions. Specifically, one of our main involvements in a small business start is the Microsoft BizSpark program. We were once a startup ourselves and know how essential it is to have the right support from well established industry leaders. Since we’re an exclusive Microsoft Gold Certified Partner, we’re pleased to offer a Microsoft BizSpark program designed specifically for startups. Today’s most promising start ups are tomorrow’s future and we help them get a head start in the business by providing them with the right visibility, support and software.
Our small business clients have improved the ability to server their own clients because we are a trusty virtual dedicated server hosting backbone. Our SMB clients rely on technology and can’t afford a hosting failure. This allows small businesses to make the most out of their budgets by focusing on their core business. These resources can now be focused on strategic aims, increasing revenue and profitability in areas like business development.
So there you go Toronto, Canada, and everyone else in the world! This is proof once again that if your small business chooses to go with an Atum virtual dedicated server hosting solution, you will be taken great care of by our fantastic team.
