|Lyons Information Systems, Inc.® offers
a professional hosting environment that guarantees your applications
be available when you need them. Our commitment is to keep
you online, all the time, with redundant data centers and
high-speed information links. In addition, placing your applications
in our professional hosting environment builds on our knowledge
of your application and database elements to maximize your
opportunity for supported, always available, secure, and
affordable information services.
Hosted application environments maintain state-of-the-art technology with information
security and response times that far exceed those of unhosted systems. Hosted
applications are generally less expensive to manage and administer than unhosted,
in-house applications due to reduced in-house demands on information technology
systems and staff.
Your information is your business. You cannot risk losing
it. Lyons Information Systems, Inc.®’s Business Continuation
solution replicates data in virtually real-time to a warm
(backup) site to ensure there are two separated copies of
your data. We can switch over and begin operating from the
warm site in an hour or less. There are no more tape backups
that require days or weeks of reconstruction – your
backup data is current, always available and ready to use.
Distributed Data Centers
Our data management strategy involves two mirrored data centers.
The data centers are in different cities, on different power
grids, and have different backbone uplink providers. Data
centers may operate separately and independently in the event
that one data center fails. The data centers are connected
by a high speed GigE link over a Metropolitan Area Network.
Natural gas-powered generators guarantee that our data centers
operate continuously — even in the event of a local power
outage. We manage your application in both data centers,
with one acting as the primary hot site and the other acting
as the secondary warm site. The warm site is synchronized
to within minutes of the hot site. This offers an extremely
dependable and failsafe data security solution.
FortiNet™ firewall technologies ensure that nothing
gets into our network from the Internet unless we allow it.
We also include virus scanning, intrusion detection, content
filters, and anti-spam protection. Our data centers are housed
in un-marked commercial buildings. Entry is only permitted
via electronic swipe cards. Visitors and vendors to our data
centers are escorted 100% of the time, and cameras photograph
everyone entering and leaving the data centers.
Lyons Information Systems, Inc.® can meet
all of your information technology needs from custom designed
applications to professional
hosting solutions engineered to keep those solutions highly
available. Our hosted application and database service is
reliable, secure and affordable to insure that your business
applications and data are always there when you need them.
