      With Akita’s dedicated server hosting solutions, we can help you to transfer any function that an onsite server would fulfil to a better-performing and more cost-effective cloud environment.

      It’s common for Microsoft Exchange,  file and SQL servers to be moved to a virtual server setup. But organisations can also move more complex systems such as VoIP phone systems, accounts packages and onsite ERP or CRM systems into a dedicated hosting environment.

      Akita can also create hosted desktop setups from our cloud servers, significantly increasing the flexibility of your organisation’s working. We can even host your website as well if you would like.

      With hosted servers from Akita, you’re in control. You’ll be free to increase or decrease your storage and processing as necessary – we’ll simply adjust the monthly costs. And all your server hosting and support requirements will be addressed under one monthly bill.

      BENEFITS OF HOSTED Infrastructure & Wider  Cloud Solutions

      Among a wide range of benefits, the following are often the most compelling reasons for organisations to adopt a hosted server setup.


      Hosted servers eliminate the IT infrastructure limitations that a growing business can face.

      For SMEs, the low monthly cost of a hosted server removes the hardware cost of replacing in-house servers. Our hosted setup provides a far more professional and reliable alternative. Additionally, our setup supports hybrid working and flexible remote access, something that's often out of budget for small organisations.

      For larger or expanding companies, our cloud servers offer an easy-to-manage, scalable, solution. Rather than the hassle of expensive upgrade projects when your in-house servers reach capacity, our hosted server solution allows you to add, or take away extra space in minutes, meaning you only ever need to pay for the storage you're actively using.


      Hosted servers remove the need for in-house hardware and software, plus associated upgrades or expansion costs. In finance terms, CAPEX becomes OPEX which generally looks better on balance books.

      Our hosted solutions are also fully supported and monitored. By moving your server to our environment, you’ll remove the ongoing cost and hassle of server maintenance as an additional cost.

      Finally, powering and cooling an in-house server can also cost an organisation as much as £200 a month. So by moving to a hosted server solution, you also save more money than you'd think on your energy bills.


      Our hosted server solutions offer increased reliability over an in-house server setup.

      Akita’s hosted solutions are run from our two ISO 27001 and ISO 9001-accredited data centre installations, based in Maidstone and Reading. As we operate these two separate data centres, we can also replicate data between the two locations for added data security. This means that our hosted server solution can also fulfil your disaster recovery and business continuity requirements.

      Variables that pose a risk of disaster to inhouse systems such as theft, accidental or intended damage, hacking or loss of connectivity are all extremely unlikely to affect one of our secure data centres, not to mention both of them making it almost impossible for your data to be lost.

      What Makes Akita’s Cloud Hosting Services Different?

      Unlike some other IT providers that simply rent equipment and capacity from other companies, we operate our own dedicated server equipment from within highly-secure, geographically separate locations. So should you need assistance, you can just call us – you won’t be passed around the houses or made to wait. You’ll also cut out the middleman’s costs.

      We also support your cloud server setup, monitoring infrastructure performance 24/7. Our experienced engineers safeguard our hosted servers against the types of virus and malware attacks that often catch businesses out. We also use highly resilient and scalable data centre-grade hardware to reduce the chance of failure – often the downfall of in-house servers.

      Our infrastructure hardware is also highly efficient and enterprise-grade in quality. So organisations can trust that our hosted services won’t let them down.

      ‘Green Cloud’: Sustainability Through Cloud Technology

      Along with the cost of powering and cooling in-house servers, many organisations are concerned with the environmental impact of running their IT systems.

      Akita’s data centres are leaders in energy efficiency and sustainable practices, and have even won awards for their approaches. Our Maidstone data centre, for example, uses an innovative fresh air cooling system meaning it uses five times less energy per kW of IT load than the average data centre.

      We also choose hardware that’s designed to perform better for longer, outperforming most standard server equipment and therefore needing replacing less frequently. When the equipment does reach the end of life, we’re committed to hardware recycling. So we either repurpose it or responsibly recycle it.
