Authorized Microsoft Hosting Facility

cloud-hostingMoving to the cloud?

Make your move easier with ISG, a company that has provided hosting since March 2001 — long before anyone ever called it a cloud.

We’ve been a Microsoft Certified Partner for 20+ years, and our data center is certified as an Authorized Microsoft Hosting Facility, which enables us to keep all Microsoft operating systems, SQL servers, security patches up to date. We’re also authorized to lease Microsoft software at a monthly usage charge under our SPLA agreement, and we have access to the Microsoft engineers to work out any unusually complex requirements.

Unlike many other hosting providers, ISG manages its own, state-of-the-art hosting facility, which means we can guarantee uptime. Your agency gets top priority, and you’re not just getting rack space in someone else’s data center. Read more about our data center.
