SunLync’s New Services – Database Hosting
All salons have experienced an increased dependency on information technology over time in order to efficiently manage operations. Your customer database is one of the most important aspects of your business, so one of the most vital decisions as it relates to your organization that will be made is how and where the database is stored.
If you don’t have the desire to host your database yourself, or to take on the responsibility of the associated maintenance that is necessary, you may consider relegating this task to another party. Outsourcing your database hosting services will not only give you a peace of mind, but you will also eliminate the cost of hardware, a backup solution and an antivirus software, just to name a few of the associated expenses.
Aside from the cost of maintaining your own server, there is the topic of disaster prevention and recovery. Having regular backups that are stored offsite is imperative should your server fail or if the location where you house your server undergoes a catastrophic event. If you enlist the services of a vendor to host your database, your backups are naturally located offsite. Daily backups should be completed and also rotated on a regular basis, and as it is your database, you should have the ability to request a backup of your data as you like.
No one needs to tell you that the security of your database is of utmost importance, but the mere thought of being solely responsible for your database can leave you feeling a bit vulnerable. A considerable advantage to employing a hosting provider is having confidence in knowing that you are securing your database in a safe manner and that it is being protected against unauthorized access.
And if you are looking to enlist the assistance of a third-party vendor for your hosting needs and would prefer not to utilize multiple vendors when it comes to your software and database hosting, then have we got great news for you! SunLync not only provides a total salon management system and a suite of associated software products to its customers – they have now added database hosting services to their solution offerings.
Naturally, one of your first questions will be what are the recurring costs to have my database hosted by SunLync, and is there an initial setup fee assessed? Pricing for this optional service has been configured so that it is not only straightforward but predictable as your business grows.
There is no setup fee to get started and the monthly recurring cost is $50/location – simple as that!
Let SunLync handle your database and the security and maintenance that comes along with it so that you can concentrate your efforts on the many other aspects of your business.
