Product Overview

AS2 has partnered with IronTree to offer a hosted/virtual server solution to clients. IronTree has been backing up data of thousands of South African organisations since 2008.

IronTree’s specialised virtual private server (VPS) hosting is a unique service in South Africa, aimed at organisations who want to move their accounting or financial software to the cloud.

Not all organisations are ready to move to cloud-based accounting services because, in many cases, these services don’t have the comprehensive functionality they require. However, there’s no reason why an organisation can’t host its familiar desktop applications on a virtual private server.

A virtual private server provides an organisation with the best of both worlds, i.e. the ability to continue using highly featured accounting and payroll systems in a secure, private cloud infrastructure.

IronTree hosts the virtual private servers via the Vodacom Business Data Centre in Midrand; this is a Tier 3 data centre with full redundancy. The hosting environment is supported by additional services to ensure safety, cybersecurity, and disaster recovery availability.
