The provision of Managed Services is at the heart of the M7 Business. We have over eight years experience in hosting solutions that are core to our customers businesses. Our application hosting, in partnership with Infor and their channel partners, includes SyteLine, BAAN and Sun Financials, now all part of the new Infor Cloudsuite. We provide a range of managed services for customer and partner applications running in M7 Data Centres, IBM Softlayer and on customers premises. Services also include off-site data back up with a range of business recovery options for customers who wish to host their own infrastructure.
The management of Infrastructure, operating systems, data and networks continues to be of key importance to IT departments. Resilience, security and business recovery need to be part of the infrastructure design and build process to meet the demands of the business, whilst finance departments drive the consolidation of variable and capex costs into monthly contracts. M7 have partnered with major vendors such as Lenovo, IBM, Microsoft, VMware, Red Hat and CISCO to deliver a range of infrastructure solutions, physical and virtual, private and hybrid, that can be hosted in the M7 data centres, on the customers premises or in data centres around the world.
Over the past eight years M7 have developed a Global Partner Programme which has delivered Infrastructure Solutions to customers in 20 countries. Industry sectors include Telecommunications, Media, Finance and Manufacturing across countries such as Japan, India, Egypt, Cyprus, Argentina and the USA plus many more in Europe. Providing a secure staging and customisation facility prior to international delivery and on-site installation, M7 understand the challenges for Independent Software Vendors and Systems Integrators delivering global solutions. By designing and supplying Lenovo and IBM appliance based solutions, we take away the problem of inconsistent infrastructure, enabling consultants to be deployed to the customers location confident that the system would be working when they arrive.
