Background

Hardware as a Service

Hardware as a Service provides new businesses the next level up from traditional Colocation Services, enabling customers to offload the hardware procurement, installation and on-going hardware support of their server infrastructure, whilst storage and networking equipment also benefits from a fixed and predictable monthly cost.

Upfront cost has always played a pivotal role in decision making for any type of business when it comes to either building their first infrastructure or refreshing their existing one. The Bunker’s Hardware as a Service transforms that by making your hardware acquisition into an OPEX model rather than a CAPEX model.

Is it right for me?

The need to travel to a data centre to fix your own hardware; waiting for vendor support to diagnose current hardware issues; high upfront costs for entire infrastructures is alleviated.

By addressing the logistical and financial issues our Hardware as a Service product helps you in your next step of growth- whether that’s upgrading your Colocation Services, moving from the servers in your office or even building your brand new start-up business.

Worry-free hardware service for a fixed and predictable monthly cost, coupled with 24/7/365 hardware support and diagnostic services.

How we helped Caretower

How Hardware as a Service works

The Bunker team will work with you in scoping and sizing the appropriate hardware to meet your specific requirements.

We will rack, mount, cable and install your preferred operating system and applications onto your hardware. Housed within one of our Managed Services Suites with strict access policies limited to our technical experts or escorted pre identified individuals. We will provision a secure connection (SSH or VPN) to facilitate your teams when deploying or configuring software.

With cross-connects to other locations to link your existing infrastructure within the data centre and internet access for external access to your hardware.

We will provide and configure our own monitoring server for on-going monitoring of the hardware against any failures. Once hardware failures have been detected, The Bunker will action the alert and fix as soon as possible either through a replacement via our hardware vendor partnerships or with our own in-house stock of replacement parts. If any hardware downtime is required, this will be scheduled and agreed with you at your convenience.
