We work with many IT consultants/firms that use our hosting services for their clients. Our premium hosting services are a good fit for IT consultants with clients looking to migrate servers to a datacenter/cloud, upgrade from older operating systems such as Windows 2003 or move to a hosting provider with superior bandwidth, infrastructure and redundancy. The IT firm/company has root access to load and configure as needed. The IT consultants can be our direct customer and bundle Riptide’s services with their own and mark it up as they wish, or we can directly invoice the referred end-user and pay the IT firm/consultant a recurring commission.
We provide many types of hosting services including remote desktop hosting (which can be utilized on a virtual server or a dedicated server). Remote desktop hosting is often used when a client wants to have applications hosted on a central server accessible by multiple user sessions. We also provide virtual server hosting, dedicated server hosting, colocation services, and monthly pricing on most Microsoft software (SQL, Office, RD user licenses, etc.) via the Microsoft SPLA program. Our agreement is month to month and our pricing includes the Windows standard operating system license in the base price. Windows VMs start at $90 for a virtual server (with root access) or $39/user, and full Dell dedicated servers start at only $225. Our premium, blended bandwidth (8 telecom carriers) is vastly superior to a single carrier bandwidth and designed to provide 100% network uptime.
We are always happy to discuss options, pricing, licensing, etc. for each specific situation since they all vary somewhat. We look forward to working with you!
