Problem
Finding a hosting company that will meet all of your needs can be a complex task.  Knowing where to turn and trusting that the hosting company will take the same level of care as you do is a challenge.  This is balanced with the notion that the hosting company has the needed expertise and will remove the burden of managing the infrastructure in order for you to focus on core business needs.

Solution
Below is a list of hosting companies supporting SQL Server 2000 or 2005 with many of the common offerings at a variety of costs, uptime guarantees, etc.  Check them out to see if they meet your needs.

Next Steps

  • If it makes sense (location, number of servers, time, cost, etc.), visit the hosting company to see first hand how the organization operates and if you feel comfortable with the hosting company's staff.
  • Be sure to check references and have your team do some research on your own, to ensure you are comfortable with your solution.
