Lyons Information Systems, Inc.® offers a professional hosting environment that guarantees your applications will 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.
