Fully Managed Services to supplement your IT environment backed by Full7Layer Support.


Managed Services

In addition to providing Colocation, OnRamp offers a range of Managed Services that can provide the flexibility of choice in how current or future infrastructure is deployed.  Often managing these services may not be considered a core competency, or a company may be simply looking to offload the complexity and the burden.  Any of OnRamp’s Colocation or Managed Server customers can work with OnRamp to seamlessly integrate Managed Services into their environment.


Managed StorageOnRamp’s Managed Storage solutions provide the flexibility and the economies of scale of networked storage with the peace of mind that comes from having our experts managing it.  OnRamp Managed Storage solutions can be configured as either shared or dedicated SAN and/or NAS solutions, and they are built on best-in-class, enterprise class equipment from Hewlett Packard, NetApp and other industry leaders.  Our engineers will work with you to customize a solution to your specific storage needs, configure the solution and ensure that it is always up and running.  When it comes to your Managed Storage solution, OnRamp’s engineers are deeply experienced in working with complex network storage technology to provide for high availability, and we have the expertise to configure, monitor, and manage a storage solution tailored to your individual needs.


Managed BackupsOnRamp’s Managed Backups are a reliable solution for the complex task of ensuring that your critical data is safe.  OnRamp Managed Backups ensure that your critical data is backed up in regular intervals to tape libraries in a process monitored and managed by our Full7Layer Support team.  Managed Backups are conducted in daily incremental (2-week retention), weekly full (4-week retention) and monthly full (6-month retention).  Weekly and monthly tapes are stored offsite.  On a weekly basis, we rotate sets of backups offsite to secure, third party data storage facilities ensuring that some copies are kept physically separate from your IT equipment. OnRamp’s engineers are deeply experienced in working with applications and know the intricacies of implementing a stable, consistent backup platform.  Whether your backup requirements are straightforward, or require coordination with advanced applications like databases or other active files, our engineers can build an effective backup plan to fit your specific needs.


Managed Compliant BackupsFor companies that need to meet compliancy standards set forth by HIPAA or other security regulation, OnRamp offers Managed Encrypted Tape Backup services. OnRamp’s compliant tape libraries have certified hardware cryptographic modules ensuring that the data recorded to the tape is encrypted prior to writing the data. Using FIPS140-2 compliant ciphers and key management, OnRamp’s Managed Compliant Backups satisfy the requirements of the Security Rule and provide a safe harbor from the requirement to conduct breach notification under HIPAA.


Managed FirewallsA properly configured and well-maintained firewall protects your critical data at rest while facilitating safe, encrypted access for authorized users.  OnRamp’s Managed Firewalls are built on best-of-class Cisco hardware and configured by our experienced engineers to the specifications of your individual security plan.  Virtual Private Networks, Intrusion Detection and Denial of Service mitigation are all configured at your direction to work in concert with your other infrastructure to provide reliable access while maintaining the highest levels of confidentiality and security. You maintain control over the Firewall, while we worry about responding with spares and changes to the configuration.


Managed Content SwitchesOnRamp’s Managed Content Switches enable redundant and scalable Data Center operations.  Content Switches are special routers that sit between the Internet and your servers that provide for the smooth, consistent transmission of data amongst and between multiple servers.  But often, companies lack experience with, or don’t want to sink time into, understanding and managing this infrastructure.  OnRamp’s Managed Content Switches are built upon best-of-class Cisco network hardware.  OnRamp’s engineers have experience working with programmers in the deployment of Content Switches and can work with you to configure a Content Switch solution that meets your specific needs.  You maintain control over the Content Switch, while we worry about responding with spares and changes in configuration.
