How Alchester helps you deploy into the Cloud or stay Inhouse when required

Alchester assists its customers with considering Cloud (Data Centre External Managed Servers/Services) as an alternative to operating in-house servers, where the application, budget and security suits. 

Some production environments simply don't permit consideration of a Cloud solution, and in those situations, suitable in-house infrastructure is needed, and Alchester can assist with this solution as well, by introducing the appropriate technologies and skilled partners to suit. Examples include real-time warehousing and intensive workflow scenarios that require local dedicated application servers/processes, or those that can not tolerate a communications delay/outage.

At a desktop application level, there are also highly interactive applications that do not lend themselves to a Cloud solution, such as 3D modelling, rendering, and or similar intensive graphic type desktop applications to name one such situation.

Outside of these exceptions, and where there is a special focus on powerful Unix based operating systems,  Alchester can assist with:
