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.

  • Easy access to your servers from multiple locations.
  • Reliable, redundant hardware with dual power supply, fire-proofing, air-cooling, backup generators and Internet connectivity.
  • A VPS is hosted in a secure environment that has multiple layers of protection against malware attacks – it’s much more secure than a local server housed in a cabinet in your office.
